Imagine Beauty ~ Chantelle Lingerie
What makes a horse such an intoxicating animal is the combination of extreme sensitivity, majestic beauty and soft love. This 1000 pound animal can feel the touch of a tiny insect, hear the sound of an acorn on a barn roof, smell an animal cloaked by trees and see the flicker of a tiny movement in the distance. To ride a horse with grace, you must partner with his breath in a delicate dance. Ears pinned back, tail lifted, head tossed, every subtle motion relays a detailed message. That is why when I saw the Broadway sensation, War Horse a few weeks ago; I was literally blown away by this extraordinary production. Michael Morpurgo’s 1982 story of the plight of 8 million horses during WWI is brought to life through the animation of charismatic equine puppets, which are so full of personality, they actually have soul. The talent of the puppeteers who manipulate these enchanting marionettes constructed with wood, mesh and steel, reflects the magnitude of perfection resulting from the performance of skilled professionals. These moppets with quivering flanks, heaving chests, and twitching ears are transformed into sensual warm blooded creatures that steal the show.
Having watched this inventive theatrical phenomenon, I was reminded of Chantelle’s Icone Fashion Collection delivering for summer in Papillion. This semi sheer design in a smoky color touched by gentle highlights is embroidered with a unique curvilinear pattern that recalls the transparent framework of the elegant puppets that dominated the Lincoln Center stage. Just as the puppeteers’ master craftsmanship is a source of life for these passive equine actors, this demi bra is an intimate coupling of Chantelle’s expert engineering and seductive fashion savvy. An imaginative interpretation of the wings of a butterfly, the Icone demi bra (2225) is aptly constructed to fit sizes 32 -38, B –F cups. Embracing the breasts with a gossamer beauty, this bra induces an exquisite metamorphosis of the female body. A provocative magic emerges.
