Cadolle Lingerie as featured on Lingerie BriefsCadolle

I have decided to split my market report in two parts because the Evolution and Curve NY show, although similar in their color/ print/ and shape reveal, had two very different vibes. To be perfectly honest, timing required that I debrief from the smaller exposition first.  Evolution was a limited array of boutique/ luxury brands portrayed in an intimate space. It started one day earlier than Curve NY, which I will … Read More

It’s been a lovelorn year with cancelled weddings and lost memories. But FINALLY, here comes the bride. Once again, anticipation is about hope. Celebrations are being planned.

This week is the semiannual Curvexpo, the premiere Intimate Apparel show in North America.

Parisians are not well prepared for snowstorms.  The airport is closed down and the EuroRail was stopped for 2 hours for those en route from London.  The streets are still coated with an icy mush: plows and shovels probably don’t go with the French aesthetic.  This wintry weather is very auspicious. How coincidental that the major theme of this year’s Salon De Lingerie is “Ice Land”, the main message at the Fall 2013 Trend Forum.… Read More

Destination weddings have increasingly become more popular.  They offer a combination of wedding and vacation all wrapped in to a seminal event not just for the bridal party, but their guests as well. It is not unusual that lately I have been hearing from brides to be who are choosing romantic destinations to stage their events.  The idea evokes images of soft sandy beaches, picture perfect horizons and the caress of warm … Read More
