Chantal Thomass is the true queen of lingerie. She makes Agent Provocateur look like Hanes. There’s not a single piece in her collection that isn’t true fantasy, there is no filler, boring stuff, just beautiful, luxury lingerie. Each piece has a story, unbelievably intricate details, beautiful finishes, and a unique design, Her boutique on Faubourg Saint Honore is fantastic, a lingerie lover’s dream. It is not like going into La Perla, which is full of beautiful lingerie, but sells bread and butter items in basic lace, t-shirt bras, etc… At Chantal Thomass, every single piece stands out.
And don’t even get me started on their hoisery…
But of course there is a downside to Chantal Thomass, like most good french things, it is kept a secret, and very difficult to get ahold of (and like most French brand’s websites, hers too is difficult to navigate and hard to figure out.) Described as “for lovers of luxury lingerie”, the brand is available in very few places in Canada. Here is their store locator, don’t even bother if you are in Canada and don’t live in Quebec.
Did I mention they do gorgeous swimwear too?
Today’s post is a sister post with a lingerie post on Nancy Girl. There is a little story about how I got in and out of my lingerie company, and both writer’s favourite panty brands. Check it out!
For all my Canadian readers, great news, Holt Renfrew has begun carrying Marlies Dekkers this season. This dutch lingerie brand is AMAZING. I will definteily do some coverage once the collection is in store.
