Paris Salon International de la Lingerie Fall 2017 ~ My Take

Aubade on Lingerie BriefsAubade

I am just back from Paris and the semi-annual Salon International de la Lingerie and Interfiliѐre shows. Last week, I gave you an overview of what I believe to be the most important trends driving design in Intimate Apparel as we move forward into 2018. The critical story told at Interfiliѐre, best captured in the fairy-tale installation “Whisperings” paid homage to the lightness of lingerie. But wandering through the Salon, which showcases fall 2017 product, it was quite obvious that lightness was already a major message, particularly in lace, embroidery and garment structure. There is lots of tulle, mesh and sheer details. Straps still prevail, enabling sheer fabrics to partake in a direction one might identify as body mapping. The impact of feminine crossover dressing is apparent in slips, “dresses” and corsetry. All hail to the granny pant (hi-waisted brief), wireless and triangle bras. The curvy category has finally expanded to offer this woman multiple fashion options. Casual or over the top, metallic highlights were evident. Sports bras continue their upswing with innovative construction. Color palettes are dominated by pink, pale roses, blues and green and nothing makes more of an impact than the use of yellow. It is everywhere. Red and black as always and lots of nude mixed with color. In fact, nude takes on a fashion life of its own, ranging from blush pinks to toffee and cappuccino. The best prints showed movement and of course, there were flowers, but it was how they were used that mattered. The key to all of this is the juxtaposition of fabrics, prints, colors and attitude.  It is difficult to separate the trends as they seem to blend together to tell an entirely new story in lingerie; a story of unexpected beauty and creative thought

Take your time with this blog. There are over 60 images here; just a taste of what I saw and the pictures I captured.
