Sorbonne collection by Chantelle brand
Created in 1876 by François Auguste Gamichon, the company that later became Chantelle, began by specializing in the fabrication of elastic knitting. It was in 1902 that Maurice Kretz, nephew of the founder of the brand, launched the fabrication of corsets from elastic fabrics. In the 1940s, Claude Kretz, who rejoined his father in the company, used “Kretz tulle” to make the first girdles. It was in 1949 that the brand Chantelle was born and quickly became the first corsetiere in France. Its slogan “Chantelle, the girdle that stays in place” was the leading slogan of the 1950s in term of feminine lingerie. Chantelle launched its first bra in 1961 and continued to launch until today with numerous underwear, like bras, slips and shorties… Thanks to its precious savoir-faire that is passed on overtime and from generation to generation, the brand Chantelle enjoys today a great success. Chantelle makes it possible for all women to wear daily underwear that have benefited from the creation of haute couture spirit, meticulous fitting adjustment and a variety of materials that are more and more noble.
