THE MAISON CATANZARO

Maison Catanzaro has been working for THREE generations to make you feel sexy and feminine. The story began a long time ago when Italian immigrants arrived in France, from father and mother tailors, Patrice Catanzaro simply grew up surrounded by incredible women who have fueled his imagination since childhood. Years later, his daughter, Charlotte Catanzaro joined the company.

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."
