Isn’t Paris amazing! Asked this question every year after I return from the Interfilière and Salon International de la Lingerie shows, I am hard pressed to respond. Paris, for me, is all about working the shows. I always find inspiration and this year, my market intelligence has been re-confirmed. Today’s review is focused on the fabrics, colors and consumer direction for the future of Intimate Apparel. And for this, we can thank the best source of this information available in Lingerie & Swim, Concept Paris and its leader, Jos Berry. I always cover this piece of the exposition first, because I learned years ago that the true foundation of Lingerie design resides in the materials and colors that create the final product. Concept Paris culls this information together from extensive research, not only from the textile industry, but also color and cultural forums.

There were some major messages, many previously established but whose momentum has only escalated with time. This has eliminated the seasonality aspect to fashion and blurred the lines globally between yesterday, today and tomorrow. In a nutshell, the most blatant are: Collaboration, Sustainability, Nature, Well-Being, Empowerment, Independence and Charity; and, of course, the power of color to define these movements. Lingerie Briefs will take a deeper look as the year evolves. Of critical importance was a special platform for 30 up and coming international indie designers whose passion for independence in order to express their ideas is a subject close to my heart. Today, I offer you a visual take away from Interfilère as well as a selection of Indie highlights (like the one above by Sam Tretton. And remember, many of these themes interact.
