We are thrilled to announce a special event: Three of our favourite intimates designers are going to be featured in our shops on February 8th until Sunday Feb. 11th. Toronto's Lorette, Halifax's Thief + Bandit, and Vancouver's Strathcona are sending us some goodies from their lingerie and loungewear collections as part of a special self-love pop up event at Victoire.
Lingerie is the most private item of clothing we wear. It's the first layer you put on, and can make you feel any type of way towards your body. The mindset of the designer may be embedded in their creations, and hopefully influence the wearer to feel more then just utility of the item. We hope in better getting to know the designer, their mindset and creative-drive may be revealed leaving you the opportunity to feel extra about your underthings!
We've prepared a fun interview for you to read, with founder and designer behind Lorette, Laure Stromboni. Hailing from France originally, her new found home is Toronto, where she creates her stunning line of women's lingerie. She will be launching her new Mystical Collection as part of this pop up, and will be at the Toronto store to talk to us a bit about what has inspired her to create lingerie.
"When la fille Lorette’s focus is on love, she becomes herself. And that’s what she likes: to be herself. Lorette was created for women who want to celebrate their female sensuality while declaring that it’s ok to be vulnerable. This is our strength. That space where love and fear exist simultaneously. This makes us both strong and soft."

V: If you were to host a sleepover: who do you invite, where do you go, what do you eat, and is it chat-all-night, marathon make-out sesh or binge-watch-TV (if so what show!?)?
V: How does being a Canadian Indie designer influence your ethos, creativity and/or sense of community? Are you tempted to beautify the long-john?!
