Celebrating femininity, sensuality, and provocation since 1975, Chantal Thomass is the reference for French lingerie chic. Designed using luxurious fabrics and delicate laces, collections are delightfully impertinent season after season.

While revamped corsets, garter belts and stockings tempt our imagination and curiosity, many women are left wide-eyed and blushing, saying “Moi? Wear that!” Yet, somehow in the essential beauty of the design lies a whisper, “Yes you can,” along with a gentle nudge, urging one to abandon reason and go for it.

“The names of the collections are as decadent and enticing as the pieces themselves.”

The allure of the lingerie of Chantal Thomass lies in its timeless elegance and daring. By teasing our sensibilities with humor and audacity, the spirited lingerie of Chantal Thomass boosts confidence and adds intrigue in a way that makes women feel vibrant and impatient to express their sensuality.

Inspired by the dreamlike atmosphere and extravagance of the circus, the Fall Winter 2013 collection of Chantal Thomass is a reminder of how much fun and outrageous lingerie can be.

Below is a selection of Chantal Thomass’ Fall Winter 2013.

Tip: The names of the collections are as decadent and enticing as the pieces themselves. Go ahead, say them out loud. In a shout or a whisper. Not only will your French vocabulary improve, it is a sure way to feel the spirit of the collection…
