La Dolce Vita ~ Christine Lingerie
I remember earlier in my retail career, whenever I felt too bogged down in paperwork, I would abandon my desk and re-merchandise the selling floor. It was like mental yoga, balancing color and form without compromising focus on key items. The challenge refreshed me. Today, a little under the weather and on a publishing deadline, I decided that the best salve for my current physical and mental challenges would be to soak in a little lingerie art and find a visual parallel that clarified my story with a charismatic presentation. My search led me to Christine Designs and Dale Chihuly’s glass installations, both phantasmagorical escapes into another world. While Chihuly’s works explode into the landscape with a fusion of light, color and form, Christine’s prints are exotic compositions saturated with rich feminine narratives. Her canvases, luxurious 19mm silk, are cut into the simplest styles; the fabric, alone, guarantees a totally sensual experience. Shown here and delivering in June is Christine’s La Dolce Vita print in classic Intimate shapes available in XS-XL. Like Chihuly’s magical glass ceilings, these pieces are a seductive diversion for the creative heart. Contact Raymond@christinevancouver.com

You have such a wonderful way with words!
I too find peace and inspiration designing with such beautiful prints!
I drape them on the body so as to create a flow between the body and the luxurious fabrications.
It is such a delight to see the finished garment and the pleasure they bring!
