Welcome to Chantelle

We are the Chantelle Group - an international design studio based in Paris and a family-owned company that has been designing lingerie since 1876. Through our 6 brands and networks: Chantelle, Chantelle X, Passionata, Femilet, Livera and Darjeeling, built on principles of collaboration and innovation, we seek to think and represent lingerie differently.

Respect, creativity, sustainability and honesty are values that drive us and that we feel are important to defend. For 145 years, we have strived to manage our growth in a virtuous way, while actively contributing to the well-being of our employees and customers. We aspire to take up the great challenges of today, whether they are related to climate change, biodiversity or social justice, to contribute positively to the emergence of tomorrow's world. Finally, we wish to defend beauty in all its forms: that of beings and their diversity, that of nature and its richness, that of our know-how and its history.

We, at Chantelle, are mobilizing to do better. And if you are reading this, it is because, in one way or another, you can accompany us, change is a collective adventure.

As a part of the Chantelle Group, the Digital Lab supports e-commerce and innovative activities.

We create inspirational digital experiences through continuous research for customers looking for expertise and quality in lingerie.

Our values

🤝 Collaboration: We all share one mission and vision, and only together we will overcome our challenges. Team up!

🤗 Respect: Strength lies in differences. Be kind to one another, open your mind, listen, and you will learn from others.

😍 Passion: There are no shortcuts to any place worth going to. Roll up your sleeves and achieve greatness.
