ICHOR creation of power clothes. Parisian brand with avant-garde design.
Ichor imagines and makes its lingerie and accessories entirely by hand, from vegetable-tanned leather, in their workshop at Paris. Provocative craftsmanship inspired by lingerie and armor. Imperious, raw power clothing, the antithesis of the idea of traditional lingerie. Ichor puts forward a bold, strong, confident and assertive feminine eroticism. Ichor is not inspired by a single subject, but by an idea, plural, variable, offered to the thousand interpretations that the people who will wear these pieces will give to it, that of a strong, audacious, desirable and desiring woman.
Each piece Ichor is unique and bears the particularities of the skin from which it comes. Each creation follows a traditional and artisanal manufacturing process, from the cutting to the final assembly. The skins are selected one by one and come from French and Italian farms that meet European ethical and ecological standards.

Inspired by shirt collars, this mock collar is an alternative to crew neck style collars. Cut from 1 and 2 mm thick leather, this piece is imposing both for its original style and its sharp cuts. A trendy accessory that catches the eye and enhances the face. Uncommon and elegant, it is a piece that goes very well with a tuxedo jacket or a long coat.
Choose your size carefully, this creation is offered in the following sizes:
- S/M : for a neck size of 32 cm
- M/L : for a neck size of 34 cm
Ichor creations are made to order and cannot be exchanged or returned C.G.V. (Article 4.). The impact accessories are designed for an informed public.
Ichor was born under the agreement of its two founders, Ingrid Garnier, stylist and Alice Guilbaud, manager. Met in 2017 during a photography project, they quickly got closer around their common vision of art and eroticism. Complementary in their skills, the common projects quickly became important, the creativity of one feeding the ideas of the other. In 2019, they finally joined forces with the aim of creating their own brand, featuring Ingrid's creations and carried by Alice's management.
The creative process of the designer, Ingrid Garnier, who is passionate about sculpture, is based on the direct work of the material and the search for the perfect line, the one that combines aesthetics and practicality, comfort and assurance. The pieces come to life directly on the mannequin, iteration after iteration, each model taking dozens, even hundreds of hours of work, before reaching the final result.
The material in the heart of the creation...
All the pieces are made from vegetable tanned bovine leather, using only substances from the trunk and bark of trees. This type of tanning, of better quality, more ecological but more time consuming than chrome tanning, allows to obtain an extremely resistant skin, which keeps a great tension. Usually reserved for riding gear or luxury leather goods and footwear, its structure is here at the heart of the creative process, allowing to obtain shapes that are difficult to achieve through textile materials. Vegetable tanning is also the most ecological process, both in its environmental impact and in the life span of the leather obtained, which can be several centuries.
