That’s how a lingerie could have looked like in times of Casanova if Chantal Thomass would be living and creating then. The latest Fall / Winter 2012 collection campaign may easily get a label of “Casanova lingerie” if not sounding cheap.
Thanks to Coco Chanel, I can say I do like that glamour has evolved and became much more sophisticated – at least you can look glamorous even in black classic lingerie, you don’t require feathers, powdered wigs and all other fluffy stuff.
This collection is something in the middle between unacceptably cheesy Rococo/Baroque madness and subtle sense of beauty of simple lines. In general, a step back, let’s hope a temporary one for Chantal Thomass, to inspire something better with next collections – only couple pieces look quite charming, others are simply interesting to watch, but I highly doubt beautiful to wear.
Something about the brand Chantal Thomass: a lingerie designer that is recognized as the queen of really chic, glamorous lingerie. True haute couture of lingerie.
