Recently, we published a story about my visit to the Patricia Mendoza Gallery in Cabo de San Jose and how it inspired my thoughts about the Lise Charmel brand.: Art Yields to Lingerie ~Lise Charmel Once again the synthesis of art and lingerie is revealed. Purposeful, or simply coincidental: at that moment, I drew a correlation to the beauty and balance of this Lise Charmel’s Nuit Elegance collection. The paintings and sculptures in the studio are as artfully positioned as the elements of design in these exquisite intimates. Shades of sapphire are threaded into magnificent guipure embroidery on multi thread black tulle that is framed by a luxurious Calais lace. Embracing the female torso so artfully, each style tells its own sensual story. Four bras 32-40, A-E cups, 6 panties, S-XXL, 2 slip S-L and a few sexy extras insure plenty of gift giving choice.
Lise Charmel’s Coralle Fauve collection is all about juxtaposition. First and foremost is the animal and floral pattern printed on tulle and silk that anchors the design. But it is the unique integration of an exclusive 6 color multithread embroidery and leavers lace that elevates the workmanship to a dramatic statement of beauty. Five Bra styles 32-44, A-F can interchange with Six separate panty shapes, XS-XXL. Lounge pieces are as worthy of interchange in a woman’s wardrobe as the intimates. Intricate construction details intercept with extraordinary workmanship to insure that the luxury signature of the famed Lise Charmel atelier is never compromised. The question is: do these pieces belong in a museum, on stage or on a woman? Check our editorial “The Nature of Lise Charmel” to learn more
In my last editorial about Antinéa Lingerie I spoke of the amazing technical expertise and sensual beauty experienced when a woman wears the intimates from the best-selling Fashion Guipure Collection. As a part of the brand portfolio of the Lise Charmel Group, these intimates represents the company’s mission of attainable luxury. It is Antinéa’s proprietary technique, “Calandrage de la Guipure” that identifies this brand’s exclusive design signature. Silk threads are interwoven on transparent tattooed tulle in an intertwining pattern of flowers and foliage. Clearly, these styles were inspired by nature. Sheer enough for the skin to surface, but firm enough to support a range of sizes, 30-44, A-G cups, Fashion Guipure is constructed to embrace and emulate a woman’s curves. Part of the company manifesto of comfort as well as enduring beauty, these bras and panties are a private and obtainable treasure in a woman’s wardrobe.
Inspired by Art Deco handicrafted creations, Lise Charmel’s Dressing Floral is an ensemble of refined lingerie pieces for women looking for a chic and timeless style. The exclusive floral design motifs are implemented in Guipure style, which gives the contours a cut-out effect on a tattoo effect background. The collection includes 5 gorgeous bra shapes from Strapless to Full Cup and 6 panty styles, plus a seductive Suspender Belt. New this fall, gorgeous devoré silk Chemise is added to the group. Coordinated full-figure styles are available in the Eprise collection. Contemporary elegance for all women who adore guipure. All styles of the best selling, Dressing Floral haute couture line are characterized by the richness of the guipure finishes and the finesse of the tattoo.
Dressing Floral colors include: Gris Céleste, summer white, dressing rose, amber nude and deep black… plus and Lise Charmel is enriching the line with a new, luminous ruby shade “Dressing Solaire”. (See Ellen Lewis’ recent piece on this exciting new color in the Dressing Floral range.)With the upcoming Fall 2018 addition of “Dressing Solaire” (red), the line is sure to be spectacular in boutique or window displays. Elegant combinations are possible with the “Gris Céleste” color, or the black lace items from the “Résille Lotus” line for highly seductive sets. This timeless guipure universe will delight highly demanding women with impeccable taste.
Lise Charmel was the first lingerie brand to design styles in this stunning material, still with its own exclusive motif.
Modern and elegant and so very French, this is a spectacularly beautiful collection!
Sometimes it is just better when your cup is only ¾ full. Eprise, the luxurious fuller cup brand by Lise Charmel proves this unequivocally with their ¾ cup balconette bras that anchor all of their luxury collections. Engineered with the famed Lise Charmel fit, this silhouette is uniquely designed for a sophisticated woman who is not afraid to flaunt her curves. The narrow center gorge allows for a deeper plunge on fuller figures creating a sexier neckline. This construction provides much less coverage than a full cup or contour bra.
