The Lise Charmel Atelier’s incredible acumen at interpreting fine art masters into modern lingerie never ceases to surprise me. This time, I envision Claude Monet. The artist’s brushstrokes saturate the canvas and a floral vision emerges.

Integrated with a 12 color woven multi-thread embroidery and eyelash leavers lace, the impression is of sumptuous garden. All these design elements allow the material to flatten and stretch creating a painting of luscious colors on a muted ground.… Read More
