Sunset, physically fit, long nights, leçons de séduction
and Aubade.

Salute the ladies of Saint Savin, Vienne.
Savoir faire, artists, therapists (even). But now sad.

Many others too. What now of Tigresse, Lotus, Verone
and the model to match?

Laid off, not even your regional president
Madame Ségolène Royale, doubtless quite mad

Could stop the the sun rising at the new factory in Tunisa.
Globalisation is not a fad.

Nor did voluptuousness make the break of day.
The new collections plus skinny are simply not up to scratch.

Lingerie française. Now made in the Maghreb.

    in unromantic terms, it does take the shine off the brand somewhat.

    Course, once the Swiss (Swiss lingerie?!) bought the company that was probably the first signal something had fundamentally changed...

    Those languid, steamy, hot nights down at the gym. The rowing machine. The Gatorade on ice. Je me souviens.
