So Chic

white dress revisedLast month, while walking through the fashionable Marais neighborhood in Paris, I saw this incredible wedding dress featured in the window of a bridal boutique.  This symbol of innocence and purity is superbly executed in the newest fashion trends.  How French!  Several months ago, I wrote a blog on Eternal Seduction in which I proffered Concepts Paris’ spring 2010 trend predictions:  poetic architecture, airy lightness, soft focus and the importance of the color white.  Here, I was witness to this vision artfully translated into a piece of fashion sculpture.  Its creative design, rendered in white, is an affirmation of virtue with the promise of new possibilities.  Fresh, clean and exquisitely constructed, the dress embodies the meaning of chic:  sophisticated, classy and amazing.

The color white, so often perceived as a fundamental in any underwear wardrobe, has emerged in the market as a marker of style this spring.  How fitting that Chantelle, the quintessential French lingerie maker has affirmed their allegiance to this fashion manifesto with the introduction of their best selling T-shirt bra, C-Chic (#3581) in the color white.  This signature bra with the subtle C monogram printed on tulle over a lined cup that insures coverage, is available for all size ranges, petite through curvy girl.  Added extras are the tiny clasp that converts the back straps to a racer back bra and the tag less construction that insures all day comfort.   Paired with this matching shorty, (#3584) Chantelle has managed to elevate a simple basic to a sensational statement.
