The unmissable trade event for the entire industry, Salon International de la Lingerie returned to Paris last weekend offering a preview of AW 2016/17 trends. For this edition, the atmosphere was built around two opposing inspirations: Sincerity, an invitation to meditation in a Japanese-style winter garden, and Distraction, which sees playful lingerie take centre stage with extravagant details.
‘Striptease’ silhouettes, golden stripes and stars inspired by the circus universe decorated colourful lingerie and nightwear. An abundance of frills, layered tulles and petticoats reveal a sophisticated silhouette for an alluring French cancan, with ostrich feathers, boas and fans mixed with large coloured graphic motifs.
The “Vintage Circus” catwalk show illustrated the Trends Forum DISTRACTIONS trend, where sexy and confident women sported frivolous lingerie in velvet, dotted swiss and flocked tulle.
