WWD Intimates Issue 07/23/2012

Triangle bras, sheer fabrics and a naturallooking silhouette that doesn’t require underwire or padding are increasingly in demand, leading European brands, including Agent Provocateur, Eres, Bodas and Yasmine Eslami, to report an

uptick in sales of softer and less-constructed silhouettes. The reasons range from comfort to fashion and aesthetics to changes in the way women project their femininity.

Resaltando la Silueta Natural


Brasieres triangulares, telas ligeras y un look natural es la tendencia que estamos viendo en ropa interior femenina, la cual busca resaltar el cuerpo de la mujer y su silueta natural, recordándonos esos looks de los 70s donde no se requería estructura.

Intimates: Control-Top Chic By LAUREN MCCARTHY FROM: WWD Intimates Issue 07/23/2012 WWD Issue 07/23/2012

Natural Wonders: Seventies Looks Ever since the days of Jane Austen, women have been faking their figures with Making a Comeback in Intimates: Panties Plus, parent company of the Kathy Ireland and Lady Princess brands, has added decorative designs to its garments, as opposed to the basic micro-fabrics predominantly used in the past. “Shapewear is worn as underwear today, so people want to feel good about their shapewear the same way that they do about the lingerie that they wear,” said chief executive officer Abe Hanan.


And while the category has obviously progressed since the days of whale-bone constructions, modern slimwear still remains a carefully concealed item. Yet the latest wave of tummy-tuckers is begging to be shared. “A lot of companies are doing this new ‘shapewear you can show,’ and I think it’s great,” said Mia Holtzman, sales and marketing manager at Julie France. “You can’t always dress in a way to hide everything from your neck to your ankles. Sometimes, something is going to show.

With the resounding sentiment, “This is not your grandmother’s girdle,” shapewear firms are noting a rise in sales across all ages, with clientele including high school prom-goers, brides-to-be and yes, even grandmothers. Current best-selling trends, they report, include when you take off your clothing you feel lace detailing, thinner fabrics and camisoles and comfortable and confident wearing it,” said leggings that can be worn as clothes. Ranu Mukherjee, brand marketing manager at Dreamwear Inc., which controls Bethenny Still, as demand grows, some companies are Frankel’s Skinnygirl Solutions. “But you really struggling to balance the fashion and function have to be careful about adding hardware or elements of design. details that you can actually see through clothes.” “We have to make sure that it’s sexy so that

Intimates Trend: Under the Influence A slew of richly costumed TV shows is influencing lingerie in the consumer market.

Whether it’s gossamer sheer gowns or deconstructed corsetry in exotic mixes of fabric, metal and leather in HBO’s medieval fantasy, “Game of Thrones”; handcrafted, built-in corsets that prop up bustlines in Showtime’s Italian dynasty drama, “The Borgias,” or slinky silk camis and slips decked with embellished necklines in the Twenties tale “Boardwalk Empire,” also on HBO, lingerie is helping to capture the ambience and look of the story line.

From a sleepwear designer’s perspective, Flora Nikrooz says period dramas on TV have been “huge” for her aesthetic. “I’m a big fan of these shows and for spring 2013, the influence of ‘Game of Thrones’ is very strong in my collection. I did a long pleated, sheer chiffon gown based on one of the characters, Daenerys, Mother of Dragons, as well as very rustic-looking Venise lace accents that have an earthier look embellished with miniature shells,” said Nikrooz, whose namesake label is produced by Age Group. “From ‘The Borgias,’ I focused on opulent looks, like highly decorated bodices encrusted with ornate pearls and glitter. I continue to be inspired by ‘Boardwalk Empire’ and I’m doing playful rompers with mushroom pleats, flapper-style camis and tap pants, and feathers and Art Deco paneling. I expect these Twenties-inspired looks to continue being bestsellers at retail.”
