About us

Maison Catanzaro has been working for THREE generations to make you dream and satisfy your fantasies. The story began a long time ago when Italian immigrants arrived in France. From father and mother who were tailors, Patrice Catanzaro grew up surrounded by incredible women who have nourished his imagination since childhood. Years later, his daughter Charlotte joined the company with the same aspirations and intentions as her father.

The sixth Impudique collection “Scandaleuse” by Charlotte Catanzaro. We find two models very different from the usual standards, but so much closer to reality! We are happy to have had diversity on this shoot taken at Château de Sénéguier in the south of France.


On April 21 and 22, La Maison Catanzaro opened its doors to its loyal customers. On this occasion, customers were able to discover the beautiful professions and the people who hide behind her name. Two days of exchanges and shared pleasure, closed with a dinner, and a laudatory speech from Charlotte to her team and to Vincent, her faithful friend and right-hand man.


Transfer of power. On April 18, 2023 Charlotte bought the family business that she helped develop, and became its official owner. She created Impudique for strong women, business women, but unconsciously (or not) it is above all a brand made to her image which was born 6 years ago now. It is in this direction that she will continue to guide Catanzaro creations.

Presentation of the first collection of the new luxury lingerie brand Impudique by Charlotte Catanzaro: Audacieuse.


"Since childhood, I have immersed myself in the glitz and glamour, been lulled by the fragrances of fabrics, the feel of textiles...and so many fabulous memories with my father: the canvas prototypes that he brought me where I played being «his princess», his gaze lit up as he organized parades, his Paris studio, which became my theme park, his pin cushion in which I formed a small heart...


My father passed on to me his passion for creation, love of a job well done and the importance of achieving one’s dreams. All that glitters is not gold but may become so through the alchemy of imagination, work and magic ... combined with a touch of madness!


I joined the family adventure 7 years ago and I learned all the workings of this wonderful profession, from handling to production. One thing leading to another, it is completely natural that the artistic direction and the creation of a brand in my image appeared as an obvious choice. Thus I envisioned Impudique, the expression of the nakedness of a dream, without shame and without complex.


Consider it my signature in this world where I already have a name, that of my father, Patrice Catanzaro, and that I tame it today with my first name, Charlotte. Impudique defies the codes of traditional lingerie and conforms to the French Catanzaro house."
