Friday Lingerie Lust: Chantelle

This week’s ‘Lingerie Lust’ is a breathtaking collection of images shot by Camilla Akrans for Chantelle Lingerie‘s Fall campaign.  Featuring Hungarian model Eniko Mihalik, lace and sheer lingerie is shown in the spirit of Chantelle: the ‘French Allure’:

“Every woman has the gift of cultivating a natural elegance. This barely perceptible little spark is called allure. It is not something you learn, it is simply her self-confidence showing through. Throughout these collections, Chantelle reveals this timeless beauty in a trail of modernity, very sensual, very French, that feeling of being chic in all circumstances. Parisian, bold, spontaneous, the French allure cannot be explained; it shows in a gesture, a look, a posture, and in that very French “je ne sais quoi” which elevates women to the sublime” ~ Chantelle

My first experience of Chantelle was as a gift.  I’ve bought several Chantelle items since – I think the bras are very well made and I love the emphasis on lace.  Chantelle aim to deliver four effects to elevate the female figure to the “sublime”.  Shaping, enveloping, uplifting and plunging:

With collections ranging from everyday fashion to “la seduction” (oo la la) Chantelle cover a wide range of lingerie desires too. Going purely by the images here, I defy you not to aspire to a “je ne sais quoi” of your own…
