This spectacular “Instant Couture” line was inspired by the opulence of precious, ornate motifs and the enchantment felt during a stroll under the arcades in Florence by the Lise Charmel design team. Instant Couture harmoniously pairs tiered arches and artistic curves. A line with very upscale, contemporary elegance through the soft colors, and refined sensuality.

I am sitting here this freezing January afternoon, intent on writing a blog about the startling beauty that is Lise Charmel bridal lingerie. I imagine a winter affair; ice, blankets, wine, and romance. I think about the stunning film, Dr. Zhivago and the sensual chemistry that Omar sheriff and Julie Christie stirred in their award winning roles as the star-crossed lovers, Yuri and Lara. And even though the story is one of deprivation, the depth of character and the seductive screen play are a study in elegance. What if fate had not interfered and a wedding had taken place? What would Lara have worn beneath her wedding gown? I imagine that it would be from the Exception Charme Collection; a sexy, sophisticated triumph of lace and silk. I imagine this because, just like the movie, these styles elevate the art of intimate apparel to a level of … ...Read more

It has been awhile since I compared a museum worthy work of art to a piece of lingerie. But when I saw the Lise Charmel Spring 2018 Fleurs de Jungle Collection at Curve last August, it was an easy make. This lush jungle print evokes Henri Rousseau’s 1910 painting, The Dream. A masterpiece emblematic of much of Rousseau’s work, the chimerical imagery is a harbinger of surrealism. Complicated color compositions (this painting is reputed to have 22 shades of green) and intriguing juxtapositions create an exotic landscape.
Fleurs de Jungle’s vibrant color palette speaks for itself. But it’s the correlation of French leavers laces, detailed embroidery and 19mm silk in tandem with this luscious print that defines these intimates as a Lise Charmel masterpiece. Meant to evoke a sensual experience for both the observer as well as the woman wearing them, these pieces are individual works of … ...Read more
