I know why the Acanthe Arty collection from Lise Charmel reminds me of the ambrosia of French desserts. I think it’s because I am ensconced in The Great British Baking Show on Netfix and last night, I watched French pastry week. It’s hard to replicate the culinary intricacies of a French patisserie. Seductive delicacies in unparalleled artistry require a modicum of indulgence just because the taste is worth it.
The flavor, the beauty and the attention to detail applied in a French bakery is as complex as the design and development of a collection of luxury lingerie and Lise Charmel’s expertise at this effort is never compromised. Acanthe Arty delivered earlier this year in a creamy white and luscious black. Now it is available in this delicate powder pink designed with the same signature laser cut satin technique that makes it a stand out focal point in any woman’s wardrobe. The chiseled pattern technology is the dominant feature in an assortment of 17 different styles; 5 bras (32-40, A-E cups), 6 panties (XS-XXXL), 2 garters and 4 cami/chemises (XS-XL). Touches of lace, guipure and embroidery are infused into the recipe adding complexities of design inherent in the Lise Charmel atelier.
Lise Charmel SS19 Haute Couture Art de Volupté and Soie Virtuose Collections are copacetic, melding together 17 styles of luxury lingerie worthy of any bride or woman desiring the ultimate in lingerie. However, it’s the Lise Charmel designer technique that raises them above commercial lingerie to another plane of grace. They are unique in their content, intricate in their application and complex in their artistry. Proprietary Guipure and embroidery on tulle, laser cut inlays and organza flowers create pattern reliefs. Exclusive leavers laces, stretch silk satin and the “ultra mother of pearl” guarantee anti yellowing process are all part of the Lise Charmel stable of componentry that separates this atelier from the crowd. Always at the forefront of development, the brand uses the “manchette” effect, an on the shoulder micro mesh with point droit detail. The Lise Charmel bridal pieces are so ethereal that they could be mounted in a boudoir for posterity.

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.
