So here we are … FEBRUARY. The shortest month of the year, but also somehow the longest. February is filled with dark, cold days and that seemingly never ending “blah” feeling. We long for warmer days, a beach, blue skies and sunshine. For some, that may be on the horizon, for others we can travel virtually. But for ALL, Milli has the perfect antidote for the February blahs.
On Thursday February 20 we are having a Beach Party, and we’ve invited SHAN — and of course you’re invited too!
Chantal Levesque took the plunge (all puns intended) into the swimwear business when she created her first collection in 1985. She quickly rose to international acclaim first, for her resort, beach and swimwear, and now with her expanded ready-to-wear line.
Her goal was to bring the elegance of European swimwear to Canada. The SHAN silhouettes are flattering, fashion forward, with an haute couture attention to detail and design. “SHAN designs swimsuits like it would evening dresses.”
With long winters and few beaches, Montreal may seem like an unlikely place for a top swimwear designer to call home. But it was for this very reason she was inspired. Chantal has always been influenced by travel, the art of the escape to warmer climates -– beautiful beaches, pools and tropical paradises. When not daydreaming or traveling Chantal keeps a close eye on all production housed in Canada. Every piece is designed, cut and assembled at SHAN’s workshop in Laval, Quebec.
Milli is excited to announce that Chantal, herself, will be making a guest appearance at our Beach Party featuring SHAN. She will be bringing her 2020 Spring/Summer collection ranging from swimwear & beachwear to ready-to-wear.
This season’s collection is inspired by the fine, sleek and modern lines of Japanese design. The collection combines minimalist and versatile pieces crafted with high performance and eco friendly fabrics. The Spring/Summer SHAN collection has its sights set on warmer days ahead and something for everyone for travelling, work life and the weekend!
