Natalia Vodianova to design lingerie, but for who?

She reportedly retired from runway modeling last year, but all it took was a call from Nicholas Ghesquiere to persuade Natalia Vodianova back on to the runway for Balenciaga’s spring 2009 show.

While modeling isn’t the first thing on her mind these days, the Russian beauty is keeping her feet wet with fashion projects, like collaborating on a lingerie collection.

She told WWD that she is “also going to be collaborating for a line of lingerie with a French brand, and I hope that it will be a success.”

Question remains, which the French brand? We’d love to think it’s La Perla, Chanel, Catherine Malandrino, Balenciaga or Chantelle… but we’re happy to be surprised.

With years of experience modelling lingerie for Calvin Klein, we can’t wait to see what Natalia has to offer. As long as it doesn’t look Calvin Klein inspired.
