Printing specialist from Lyon, Rocle by Isabella was chosen as the 2017 Designer of the Year in the beach category by Interfilière Paris and Paris Capitale de la Creation. The 100% made in France company will be honoured at the next Interfilière Paris trade show on 8-10 July in Paris.
The business was bought in 2007 by two women who are passionate about the profession, then export manager Emmanuelle Bonnetin and designer Isabelle Rivier. The duo decided to create new prints exclusively for the lingerie market and entered the swimwear market in response to requests from their lingerie clients.
“Prints contrast with plains, they let us tell a story… Brands have understood the importance of having a visual identity and using storytelling techniques through their products,” said Emmanuelle.
Clients now include Aubade, Van de Velde, Dim, the Lise Charmel Group, Empreinte, Anita and others. Rocle by Isabella will also celebrate 10 years at Interfilière Paris with the launch of its first-ever collection of two-way stretch wovens with LYCRA® for swimwear and lingerie, as well as prints and jacquard for swimwear.
