Perfume house Annick Goutal, seeking a diversification of its activities and feeling the affinities that exist between fragrance and lingerie through a similar focus on skin, has introduced a lingerie collection divided into four different sub-sets each inspired by a different Goutal perfume: Petite Chérie, Grand Amour, Quel Amour!, Songes.....
The concept is also one that was recently developed by Chantelle, offering four different universes of lingerie corresponding to 4 scents and distinct beauty product ranges.
The Goutal silk lingerie range was created by designer Vannina Vesperini who established her own brand in 1996. She is known for being a promoter of the idea of a lingerie that is not necessarily just an under-wear but can be exhibited as part of one's outfit, worn like a garment in what is termed the "dessous-dessus" style. The lace reproduces the Goutal butterfly motif and the straps are decorated with tiny Swarovski crystal butterflies.
