Autumn Winter 2011-12 Trend Direction from Interfiliere

on 30/9/10

Introduction

One of the most important shows in the calendar for the lingerie sector, the fabric & accessories fair Interfiliere took place in Paris recently, and as always it was adjacent to the lingerie & swim product show Mode City.

The shows organisers at Interfiliere recognised that a recession often damages both the brand & retailer, as well as the consumer's spending power, but they felt also that lingerie was also bucking the trend as it becomes 'ever-more opulent, richly decorated and lavishly ornamented'. 

The motive is that when times are difficult it is best to restore our sense of  'self-esteem, individuality, sense of pleasure'  to make us feel better, but also have the desire to start purchasing lingerie.

In Europe last year, the number of pregnancies increased significantly, an expression not only of sexuality – and seduction – but also of peoples’ desire to determine their own destiny. In Asia, lingerie and chocolate – two prime sources of pleasure – are bestsellers. And what might be called the ‘striptease spirit’, as personified by the uninhibited fantasy of Dita Von Teese’, is rejuvenating the cabarets and music halls… In a completely different direction, renewed interest in the home and family pleasures is now sparking a new wave of loungewear’.

To Summarise: Emotion and especially sensual seduction are more than ever blue-chip stocks to be followed. It can never be said too often: when everything is expensive, the small pleasures do not have a price.

Market Overview & Direction

The lingerie market, which includes hosiery, has withstood the sharp declines that have been experienced in other retail sectors during the recession. Many women have viewed lingerie as a relatively inexpensive ‘pick-me-up’ at a time when the recession was biting into other areas of spending. The hosiery market has been particularly buoyant, women of all ages have rediscovered the fashion potential of tights and leggings and brands have reacted with strong fashion looks and innovation.

The Trend Boutique particularly liked the hosiery company Bebaroque whose amazing, embellished tights we felt really represented how buoyant the market was due to the premium placing both on a design & market level.

Manufacturers have also used technological development to increase the comfort and effectiveness of shapewear, which has become a major sales driver for the sector. Multi-functionality remains a key driver for bras. Online retailing is proving successful adding to an already competitive marketplace.

Consumer Insight

The lingerie market is becoming more polarised with consumers moving both up towards luxury and down to value. Fit and quality are as important to them as fashion and style and lingerie brands are working to meet this demand with a further focus on plus sizes, shapewear and corsetry. The media continues to influence the consumer with TV programmes such as ‘How to Look Good Naked’ with Gok Wan. This has increased the knowledge and awareness of the consumer who is far more informed than ever before.

Online retailing has proved successful and women are increasingly more confident to buy on-line; many women even prefer to once they know what brands fit them well. There is a continued passion for vintage glamour and this will be a key driver for both functionality and fashion. The American series ‘Mad Men’ has perpetuated the hourglass silhouette.

General Trend Forum at Interfiliere 

Key Focus of Forum:

The mood of the forum was all about luxury and sensuality. The polarisation of the market is driving the luxury sector to new heights and providing new opportunities. The focus is on technical fabric innovation to meet this shifting market direction. Lace is dominant, with ever softer and more luxurious handles. Graphic imagery is the strongest direction for prints. Embroidery is extremely refined with greater stretch properties.

General Forum at Interfiliere

Menswear:

 A feel of dandy chic. Tailoring influences are pushing the preppy look with tie, foulard and caviar motifs. Navy’s and blacks with some surface or finish with give added drama and sophistication. Classic with a twist.

Loungerie:

The future’s all in the mix. Fibre mixes are key, noble yarns such as angora, cashmere and silk blended with cotton, wool and viscose, adding a touch of luxury to everyday fabrics.

Colour Direction at Interfiliere 

From the colour direction trends being shown at Interfiliere, The Trend Boutique have put together a series of colour harmonies to show you how our Autumn Winter 2011-12 colours may be interpreted for the lingerie & swimwear market. 

  • Powdered tones used with pretty accents for the most sophisticated and precious materials, especially silks. Black and ink tones featured (refer to ‘Soulages’ report by The Trend Boutique 1/3/10).
  • Also in the running are colours direct from streetwear: lots of blues but also ochre’s and oranges.

  • Flesh tones more edgy and more yellow toned than previously

  • Greens including tones of Chinese jade

  • Blues, marine and denim shades

  • Earth tones, yellows, honey, ginger, poppy red. These colours are dominant going forward to Spring Summer 2012

  • Prune, damson and synthetic pinks

 

The 'Evolution' Guide to Trends for Autumn Winter 2011-12 

One of the highlights of the Interfiliere shows is obviously the various presentations & forums held by the leading forecasting agencies such as Carlin International, Peclers Paris, Nelly Rodi & Promostyl. Added to this list of prestigious agencies is the lingerie specialists Concepts Paris, who in conjunction with the Eurovet fashion team came up with four trend directions they felt were strong for Autumn Winter 2011-12.

The Trend Boutique have taken a look at these trends & interpreted them using brands & designers that we felt fitted these themes, plus also linked them back to our overall 'Guides to the Season' to make it easier for you as students & graduates to understand & reference the various different directions.

Trend Direction 1: Raw Romance 

The key points for this first trend direction were:  

  • Art & Nature.
  • Rustic & Random.
  • Handmade.

'Raw Romance' is also a strong theme for loungewear & nightwear.

The Trend Boutique chose new lingerie label Shell Belle Couture lingerie that uses vintage fabrics & trims and soft feminine shapes as a perfect reflection of the natural colours with more of a faded & yellow tone seen in this theme. This softly seductive nightwear & loungewear range has a feminine touch created by the antique finishes, and is not over complicated or structured allowing the sheer, delicate fabrics to take centre stage. 

Shell Belle Couture LingerieShell Belle Couture Lingerie Spring Summer 2011 Collection

Key directions within this theme were:

  • Natural colours and vintaged yellows
  • Geometric laces with curve and wave patterning
  • Buttery yellow laces and soft cotton guipure
     
  • Gold and bronze metallic highlights for prints, embroideries and laces
  • Olive green and buttery yellow combinations
  • Very light sketchy abstract embroideries
  • Linear and line drawings for prints and embroideries
  • Soft aqua’s and blues
  • Ultra fine denim jerseys
  • Tapework crochet laces 
  • Ultra soft jersey ribs – Willi Hermann
  • Open wool crochet knits in soft grey tones
  • Tonal grey rose prints on satin base
  • Cotton embroideries on voile 
  • Cotton eyelash lace, fine black stitched outline defining flower motifs
  • Skintone fine gauge knits with subtle sparkle – Willi Hermann and Liebaert
  • Very sheer and fine’ antique’ laces edges in varying widths
  • Skintones - more ‘antiqued’ and yellow toned
  • Fabric laces – Chanty
  • Woven satins with antiqued finishes
  • Finest one-on-one rib – Hubert Tricot
  • Crystal pleating 
  • Vintaged satin ribbons
  • Pearl buttons
  • Matt and shine ruched elastics in antique cream and black (Cheynet)

2. Hilarious

Luxury takes a stroll in the footsteps of Karl Lagerfeld and John Galliano… All the allure of glamour of course, but full of humour and audacity, inspired by resolutely individualistic remixes of past crafts, with treasures from the attic and grandma’s handicraft skills. Trendy luxury with a fresh spirit, energetic and ‘ageless’ style. 

The Trend Boutique liked the styling & direction of these fun lingerie pieces by Huit that capture the feel & spirit of the 'Hilarious' theme.

HuitBetty Full Cup Bra & Wispy Knickers by Huit Lingerie 

Key directions within this theme were:

  • Sweet florals on satin grounds
  • Fine gauge synthetics
  • Bright fresh colours, bright violet and rose
  • Impactful decoration
  • Frills and florals, think Meissen dolls
  • Cut-outs and placements
  • Country plaids and stripes
  • Mixed elements, grandma’s attic

Also for this theme take a look at contemporary lace – concept garments displayed a young all-over lace by Chanty. A soft hand feel ‘helanka’ look lace with higher elastomere creates a strong modulus for multi-functioning garments for added smoothing effect 

Trend Direction 3: Dare to Explore

Maximalism reminiscent of the old curiosity shop as well as today’s concept shops such as Merci in Paris and Anthropology in New York and London. The atmosphere conjures up images of the Silk Route, the riches of all the cultures of the world. Indian embroideries mix with African jacquards, taffetas are decorated with semi-precious stones and stretch satin are everywhere… And, not to forget, the best of current masculine chic and graphics, echoes of the eccentric style of the American Iris Apfel.

The Trend Boutique chose this collection by lingerie label Fantasie because of its rich berry tones, luxurious feel & nod to Fifties styling.

Lingerie by Fantasie
 
Key directions within this theme were:
 
  • Purples, blues, berry reds and dark olive
  • Aqua’s, marines and navies

Trend Direction 4: Radical Chic
 
Between the Berlin of the Twenties and the Paris of the Eighties. Volumes are generous, there is a rigorous architecture, laces, jacquards and cut-out effects feature black and ultra-white graphics. The archives of Mugler and Montana are major references which set the tone for a sculpted, clean, structured silhouette.  An important trend for shapewear.
 
This amazing lingerie by Damaris with its daring cut-outs & intricate crossover straps are a great match to this theme.

Fabric Developments and Innovations

The focus is on blends, silk, angora, cashmere with cotton wool and viscose. Everyday luxury is the benchmark, supported by fine gauge and ultra-soft handles. Fabric suppliers are constantly adding new lighter weights to meet the demand for a modern interpretation:

  • Be Be Cotton, has developed a range of natural dyes of plant and animal origin suitable for organic cottons, recycled polyesters as well as conventional cottons. 
  • Modal, polyester and polyamide blends using natural dyes
  • Desseilles offer larger widths of jacquard lace, soft and flexible laces and innovation to imitate a crocheted Bruges lace 
  • Green touch within the general forum a table displayed green fabrics by supplier. Recycled polyester - its possibilities to recycle at every stage in the production process promotes this as the green fibre of the future as seen at Asahi Kasei Roica, Asahi Kasei Cupro and Louis Vuidon
  • Julius Boos shows new fabric development using kapok 
  • Laces, lots of technical development in the lace sector, as below
  • Noyon have further developed their semi-finished shapewear laces to offer 2 new styles of high-waisted briefs. They are also offering ‘cosmetological’ featuring active ingredients such as aloe vera. There are also silk laces and an organic cotton line
    Eurojersey have new sensitive sheer, soft fluid with second skin properties and eco credentials
  • Digital printing becoming ever more important in the industry especially as it is getting increasingly difficult for small businesses and new designers to meet minimum order requirements and this technology allows for small runs and greater flexibility and adaptability
  • Soulis-Kuehnis one of the first suppliers to print on embroidery, the Greek company has launched a major new innovation; digital printing on tulle. This technique gives the appearance of fine embroidery
  • Maglificio Ripa has developed a new, extremely fine and very light collection of 44-gauge jacquards for swimwear
 
Key Drivers for Lingerie Towards 2011-12
 
Key Trend Driver 1: Women in their 40’s and 50’s
 
A recent article in the Daily Mail reported that lingerie sales have been driven by the ‘Cougar effect’. The report included, “Sales of risqué lingerie among women in their 40s and 50s have soared in recent months, according to retailers. No longer content with ‘mumsy’ bras and pants, these women are now thought to buy more stockings, suspenders, basques, thongs and cleavage-boosting bras than women in their 20s.
 
Lingerie by Porzia T
 
Lingerie by Chantelle
 
They have become the fastest-growing market for sexy lingerie – inspired, retailers say, by racy on-screen role models such as Sex And The City’s Sam, played by Kim Cattrall, and Courteney Cox in the new TV show Cougar Town.” “And well-to-do women in their forties and older tend to have more spending power than those in their twenties - making them an attractive prospect for luxury underwear brands.”
 
Key Trend Driver 2:  Catwalk Influences
 
The Spring/Summer 2010 collections were awash with lingerie-inspired looks (e.g. Christian Dior). This trend comes and goes but this time around the interpretation was far more sophisticated and intricately executed using couture techniques, vintage detailing and innovative lightweight fabrics. Lingerie brands are tapping into the reappearance of lingerie inspired looks in outerwear by designing ‘heirloom’ pieces that are multi-functional; to be worn as part of a fashion look but once that trend subsides to be treasured in the lingerie wardrobe.
 
The queen of exquisite underwear is Carine Gilson who has an atelier in Brussels where couture lingerie methods are ‘de rigueur’. At Interfilière this was seen on the trend forum where a highly embellished knicker was presented in a cage titled ‘Collector’s Lingerie’ Recent and future outerwear trends are furthering the opportunity to indulge in gorgeous lingerie.
 
The fashion world is in agreement that minimalism or cool classicism is back, a hint to the 1990’s but conveying today’s lifestyle and attitudes. The fabrics and proportions are of course different and the simplicity belies the creative flair required to design a plainer aesthetic. This means there are many more possibilities for decorative under garments now that outerwear proportions are changing.
 
Corset by Velda Lauder
 
Skirts and dresses are getting longer and more A-line, the blouse returns, 50’s and 60’s silhouettes. There is less need for complete invisibility under clothing going forward. This means decorative, encrusted straps and balconette silk bustiers (just seen) under sheer fabrics, petticoats under fuller or longer skirts, colourful shapewear and big pants, worn-to-be-seen negligee’s, contemporary hosiery with shorts, lace and slip dresses, the list goes on. As clothing becomes more pared down, lingerie becomes more alluring and light-hearted.
 
Key Trend Driver 3: Glamorous Lounge & Sleepwear 
 
Boudoir dressing is becoming more and more sophisticated. Lounging has been growing steadily over the past few years. Think of companies like Toast who have mastered the art of casual luxury lounging. The bar has now been raised further and lingerie brands have been taking their inspiration from the catwalks.
 
Loungerie by Kriss Soonik
 
Nightwear has suddenly got more interesting, shaking off its dull image; the negligee is now a desirable item. Luxury has retreated to the bedroom, silk pyjamas, chemises, kimonos. People’s homes, especially bedrooms are more glamorously decorated with wallpapers, fabrics, dressing tables and the perennial influence of vintage items. Nightwear is moving to match this new mood.
 
Key Trend Driver 4: Travel & Multi-functionality
 
Continual travel and short breaks drives the swimwear market all year round. Swimwear is not as price sensitive as lingerie. The consumer is prepared to spend on the right swimwear piece. Intima Magazine Group has collated feedback from retailers across Europe that consumers are prioritising quality and fit above fashion and style. The opportunity for brands continues to be the ‘plus’ sizes and in the UK in particular Swim shapewear is growing year on year. The ready to wear opportunities such as kaftans, clothing and accessories continue to provide growth opportunities to meet the desire for multi-functioning pieces that suit any occasion.
 
 
Kimono Cover Up by Freya Swimwear
 
Key Labels to Watch:
 
DNA Lingerie, the lingerie retail business being developed by entrepreneur Theo Paphitis, is expected to open its first stores in the spring 2011. DNA stands for daywear, nightwear, anywhere. La Perla, soon to launch its latest collection designed by Jean Paul Gaultier.
