This fashion editorial, shot by Stephanie Hynes during her recent sojourn in Paris is a testimonial to French lingerie.  Through her unique lens, she addresses the question: Why is French lingerie so revered? To us, the answer is intrinsic in the DNA of the French culture. Every facet of daily life is infused with the pursuit of pleasure; the French way of doing things caters to the senses. Some call it “savoir faire”. We call it the art of seduction. … Read More

Savoir Faire
The Chantelle Spirit, the French Allure:
Parisian, Bold and Spontaneous…  the French Allure cannot be explained. It is shown in a gesture, a look, a posture, and in that very “je ne sais quoi” way, which elevates women to the sublime.

 Since the age of 16, when I spent a summer living with a family above their cheese factory in Reims, France, I have been enamored by the elegance and savoir-faireaesthetic of the French culture. Maybe it was the Veuve Clicquot champagne that was served freely at the dinner table, or the chocolate éclairs I managed to overeat while exploring the plethora of patisseries with my teenage friends.

In college, while studying the art and language that is at the heart of the French psyche, I could not ignore the elements of style and taste that inform this seductive society.    … Read More

Empreinte Ellen Bra as featured on Lingerie Briefs

I have never had anyone named after me, let alone a bra. So, when Empreinte launched the Ellen bra for winter 2021, I decided to believe that perhaps, I was the inspiration (even though I know this is completely false). So why the tall tale? Because the Empreinte brand emulates exactly who I strive to be; a lover of artistry, a purveyor of quality and a pursuer of intelligence. I’ve been following and wearing the brand since I first discovered their unique fit in 2009.Read More

Chantelle Norah Underwire molded t-shirt bra as featured on Lingerie Briefs

Here’s what I admire about the Chantelle brand: they understand the American consumer. As a 140-year-old French corsetry company, shifting gears from the brand’s signature elegance to our culture’s obsession with functionality could have been a huge obstacle.  Instead, they successfully merged elegance with practicality, resulting in an array of beautifully executed styles that are fashionable as well as practical. And, they get the sizing issue, the fact that there is an extraordinarily large number of well-endowed women on this continent. That is why the feedback on Chantelle’s new Norah collection caught my attention.… Read More
