As a working American woman, it can be easy to find yourself buying only the most practical nude t-shirt bras. Luckily, Antoinette Paris is out to change the way we think about lingerie and our every day lingerie wardrobe.
When a pair of French sisters came to LA, they couldn’t find the lingerie they were looking for. Instead of complaining, they decided to create their own boutique where they could bring the beauty and Parisian sensibility they were looking for to other women in the US. Owners Caroline and Laure Gilleron currently stock only “the best, the handmade and the up-and-coming” in their unique online luxury boutique.
Antoinette Paris currently carries three designers: Odile de Chagny, Prelude, and French CanCan. Each embraces playful luxury in a different way, but all are committed to quality materials and meticulous details.
Odile de Chagny is a designer who is inspired by traditional French lingerie. She began her lingerie business after discovering a trunk of vintage lingerie in her family chateau, and is inspired by traditional construction methods. All of her pieces are hand-sewn works of art. Caroline and Laure were attracted to her fabrics and her sense of femininity. Her current collection is inspired by hearts and lace.
Prelude is another designer who loves to work with lace, but has a more Eastern European sensibility. The collection consists of luxury pieces in lace and satin that fit perfectly into your every day lingerie drawer. The current collection focuses on practical but oh-so-pretty styles like high waisted panties and balconette bras.
French CanCan combines luxury fabrics and construction with burlesque styles to create a unique and playful collection. Their sheer sets and ruffled babydolls take the wearer back to the Moulin Rogue.
Pieces from these designers can be purchased at Antoinette Paris.
