Spotlight on Lise Charmel

By ELLEN LEWIS

I am sitting here this freezing January afternoon, intent on writing a blog about the startling beauty that is Lise Charmel bridal lingerie. I imagine a winter affair; ice, blankets, wine, and romance. I think about the stunning film, Dr. Zhivago and the sensual chemistry that Omar sheriff and Julie Christie stirred in their award winning roles as the star-crossed lovers, Yuri and Lara. And even though the story is one of deprivation, the depth of character and the seductive screen play are a study in elegance. What if fate had not interfered and a wedding had taken place? What would Lara have worn beneath her wedding gown? I imagine that it would be from the Exception Charme Collection; a sexy, sophisticated triumph of lace and silk. I imagine this because, just like the movie, these styles elevate the art of intimate apparel to a level of excellence indefinable but irrefutable. Yes, the Calais lace, and the Swarovski anointed guipure contribute, but it is the famous Lise Charmel fit that endures. More important: when the day recedes into history, these pieces remain keepsakes, a forever token of a splendid memory.

It has been awhile since I compared a museum worthy work of art to a piece of lingerie. But when I saw the Lise Charmel Spring 2018 Fleurs de Jungle Collection at Curve last August, it was an easy make. This lush jungle print evokes Henri Rousseau’s 1910 painting, The Dream.  A masterpiece emblematic of much of Rousseau’s work, the chimerical imagery is a harbinger of surrealism. Complicated color compositions (this painting is reputed to have 22 shades of green) and intriguing juxtapositions create an exotic landscape.
