Shop September: Romantique

Romantique (1403 Bellevue Ave., 604-926-3838) paints a picture of lingerie luxury with splashes of silk, lace, sparkling wine, and-the bold final touch-an ocean view. Run by mother-daughter team Lynn and Sasha Rockwell, the boutique is plush with European bras in every size, microfibre robes from the States, and quality shapewear.

Why we love it: Home of the Christine Morton designer room, showcasing the West Vancouverite’s award-winning sleepwear and lingerie, as worn by Oprah, Catherine Zeta Jones, Gwenyth Paltrow and Katie Holmes.
