Art ~ Chantelle

My daughter Kate’s choice of majoring in Fine Arts at Vassar College has initiated many questions about the necessity of developing “real life skills” during a child’s formative years.  It’s hard to make a living from Art.  But education is much more than meets the eye and her course of study definitely created a provocative thought process.  Maybe it was her exposure to my world as she grew up, but her fascination with textiles and the emotions that their feel and appearance evoke has influenced all of her work.  One of her earliest projects is still one of my favorite pieces.  Symphony is a lyrical expression of fluidity and lightness.  Subtle tinted layers of translucent fabric hang delicately from a supportive frame moving independently to form a simple but elegant sculpture.  The shape flows freely through space depending only on the surrounding environment to guide it.

The recent addition to Chantelle’s C Chic Sexy collection of their signature Spacer bra (3585) is a fitting comparison to Kate’s ethereal composition.  Engineered with layers of transparent airy mesh that have been molded to shape the breast, this fundamentally basic style is extremely light and very breathable.  Available in sizes 30–40 and B–G cups, the design is constructed with a leotard back and convertible straps that will enhance fit as a woman’s natural shape demands.  The crush proof fabric insures that it will always resume its original form after wear.  But it is the exquisite details combined with this innovative construction that elevate the C Chic Spacer bra from a basic foundation to a work of art.
