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. The collection is extensive and includes 4 bra selections, 6 panty styles plus a nightie, camisole, blouse and shorts. (Ellen Lewis was also inspired by the collection recently.)… Read More

And even though the story is one of deprivation, the depth of character and the seductive screen play are a study in elegance.… 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.… Read More
