Using the power of colour to reinvent its finest collections, Montelle transports the wearer into the heart of the intended season. Coating its best sellers in new and updated hues, allows the brand to maintain the trusted fit and quality of its product offering whilst bringing trend aware palettes to the fashion landscape. Montelle presented an indulgent FW16 collection at CURVENY earlier this year.
Set to be delivered in color stages, Montelle’s FW16 intimate apparel trends will be unfolded at different dates to keep the collection lively particularly as the holidays approach.
The season’s first mode will descend as Twilight- a sultry navy blue that will be the perfect alternative to your black T-shirt bra. Expect this bold blue to infuse Montelle’s much-loved essential collections such as Pure, Absolute, Prodigy, Flirt, Noblesse and Wire-Free.

Twilight will share the horizon with the softer lights of Pale Jade, Wisteria and, back by popular demand, Seashell, which is a lovely substitute for Nude.
With an alluring peep hole and a hint of black underpinning the colorway, the sassy Keyhole Fantasy transitional fashion collection also gets a makeover with a brush of Twilight in the season’s first release. Accentuated with garter belt and elegant chiffon wrap make the Keyhole Fantasy a sensational set for FW16.

“The Keyhole Fantasy group is on almost every order! People consistently love this sexy balconette style bra and we have added a little extra bling to make it even more special,” says Annette Smith of Montelle. “Dark neutrals mix together for a tone-on-tone effect. Rich black accents take these pieces to all new levels. The Navy-Black combination is very trendy and offers a sophisticated sexiness.”

And what would the season be without a measure of rich red? Red is traditionally a stalwart colour for the wintry period and Montelle’s second release for the FW16 harnesses the ‘power of red’ in a robust romantic Scarlet Red with the appeal of a delicious winter berry.
“So far our Scarlet Red is trending strongly in all of our bra and panty styles,” informs the brand’s Annette Smith, “and the retailers are especially enjoying the little addition of lace we added to our 9017 wire free bra. This is one our most popular bras and people were happy to see that we have added a holiday flavor to it.”

“Traditional artisan techniques such as wax print and Moroccan tiling are a new focus for modern and rich prints.” – Annette Smith, Montelle.
Within the second release, the extended color palette is beautifully merged in a marvellous Mosaic print, reflecting accents of blue, red and subtly placed Seashell – a print that will surely make an impression on brand patrons.
“Our Mosaic print is a colorful update to the traditional Moroccan tile pattern. Mixing colors from our first delivery (Navy and Seashell) with the Scarlett Red creates a perfect mix and match story,” says Annette Smith. “Traditional artisan techniques such as wax print and Moroccan tiling are a new focus for modern and rich prints.”
Enhancing the Montelle FW16 line-up are additions that can be used for layering over lingerie pieces and include chemise, cover-up and Montelle’s Body Bliss range. Made with supersoft fabric and trimmed with lace, Body Bliss by Montelle was introduced last year as a loungewear range and includes leggings, V-neck tank, long sleeve top, boy shorts and briefs. Body Bliss’ neutral tones of Black, Ivory, Grey and Expresso will certainly make a pleasing contrast with the season’s more colorful lingerie offerings.
