for the Vice Versa
The most famous designer of French lingerie is also the icon of Paris glamour which, although often voluptuous and even sometimes provocative, never loses its sense of chic.
For the Vice Versa, she was the mistress of ceremony that was needed. Inspired and a bit of a scoundrel under her legendary fringe, she alone could gather in one place all the facets of the City of Light, from fashion to gastronomy, by way of luxury and art.
Chantal Thomass, who rehabilitated the basque, garter belt and corset and invented lace tights, also conceptualised the decor of an entire hotel, bringing to the project a theme as subversive as it is universal: the 7 deadly sins.
"The theme immediately came to me: 7 floors, 7 deadly sins! (...) I would naturally be expected to excel on Lust and Gluttony, but the real challenge resided in Avarice and Pride, for example, which are vices I don’t have. I wish you happy sins for sweet nights! "
