Founded in 2012 by Anastasia Ikonnikova, NUIT is known for its beautifully draped, romantic Gothic aesthetic. To quote directly from their website, “NUIT presents a marriage of the sacred and the profane, other-worldly shapes in an urban landscape. Each garment is designed to shroud and strengthen the body, ennobling and mystifying the human form.” Furthermore, each piece is strong and gorgeous from its very conception. “Fabrics and materials with innate beauty are a starting point for design, with subtle, intricate details adorning the final garment. The colour palette is harmonious and neutral, allowing the natural elegance of the wearer to be the center of focus.”
NUIT’s newest limited capsule collection, Coeur Royale, is no exception to this standard. Featuring plenty of velvet, with distinct lingerie and Baroque inspiration, every piece is luxe and sumptuous, keeping you feeling sexy in the throes of winter (or anytime, really). Each piece is handmade to order in their Toronto atelier.
Who wants to be Little Red Riding Hood when you could be Little Black Velvet Hood? Hooded Velvet Cape//$167

As a lover of red, velvet, and bows, I think I would sell whatever is left of my soul to own this bodysuit. Pair it with fishnet tights or a high-waisted black skirt and watch everyone swoon over you. Square Neck Bodysuit in Oxblood//$127
