Something Old, Something New Series 3

It has been a while since my last Something Old, Something New Post but I have a delightful surprise for you. I found a genuine Montagut shirt among my mom's clothes. She says it belonged to my grandmother so it should be at least 50 years old. Upon checking the brand's history, I believe this is made of their famous and unique material known as FIL LUMIERE.  



Montagut's Fil Lumiere

Montagut is a French brand that was established in 1880. Its founder Adolphe Tinland, created a silk factory powered by the river. Before it ventured into sweaters and shirts, it was producing lingerie and stockings. During the 1960s, it came up with its Fil Lumiere creation which literally translates to "light yarn". It was an artificial yarn containing all the features of silk.



Beauty and Durability

As you can see, this shirt has maintained its vibrant color and perfect fit for more than 50 years. Most of the clothes now would not even last for 6 months without losing its form and original color. It's so comfortable to wear that I decided to pair it off with my black leggings and Happy Feet sneakers so I can join the fun in our village Christmas party without looking less fashionable.




I love my mom's chest of treasured clothes.
