LYCRA® MOVES™ SWIM AT SWIMMIAMI

ILS_web_Mcpete Sez

Unveils New Global Swim Video & Presents Model Showcase of 2018 Swimwear Trends featuring Fabrics from Around the World

As a key ingredient in many swimsuit brands, the LYCRA® brand was once again a presence during Miami Swim Week and sponsored the LYCRA® SWIM SALON during SWIMMIAMI, July 14-17, 2016. The salon was a new tented venue located on the grounds of the exclusive W South Beach hotel in Miami Beach, Florida. A series of four swimwear runway fashion shows featuring swimwear by Hot-As-Hell, Robb & Lulu,  Baes & Bikinis and San Lorenzo were held at the salon. These brands use LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber in their swimwear collections because it resists breakage and fit loss caused by chlorine and sunscreen, and lasts up to ten times longer than unprotected spandex.

An invitation-only cocktail party was hosted by the LYCRA® brand at the LYCRA® SWIM SALON on Saturday, at the W Southbeach hotel.  This was followed by a presentation on LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber by Pattie Ficorilli, INVISTA Senior Marketing Manager for Swim. A live model showcase featuring trends created in collaboration with Stijlinstituut Amsterdam, where the 2018 swimwear trends were brought to life. Finally, guests previewed the new LYCRA® brand global swim video that highlights the unrivalled benefits LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber delivers to swimwear.  The new global brand video will be made available to brands and fabric mills to promote the quality of their swimwear and fabric selection using LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™.

“Miami Swim Week gives us a wonderful opportunity to engage with our partner brands and showcase the newest fabric innovations to the global swimwear community,” said Ficorilli. “Fabrics using our LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber are the favorite choice of swimwear brands around the globe, and we enjoy being able to educate both new and established brands about our technological developments,  trends in the industry and connect them to key fabric mills from around the globe.”

More information on the LYCRA® fiber brand can be found at www.connect.LYCRA.com and www.LYCRA.com. You can also find the LYCRA® brand on social media by using @LYCRABrand.

Nadia Ali Featured in 2-Part Refinery29 Interview

ILS_web_Mcpete Sez

 Controversial Pakistani Porn Star’s Interview Now Live on Facebook!

Muslim porn star Nadia Ali is the subject of a two-part Facebook video interview for http://www.Refinery29.com. The controversial adult entertainer, who caused controversy in her home country by performing wearing the ceremonial headscarf, has also received death threats for her work in the past year.

nadia-ali-body-image-1462557965“Working in the adult industry was about me being open with my sexuality, but obviously the word sees it differently,” says Nadia. “I was banned from Pakistan not for starring in porn movies, but for wearing the religious head scarf and other Islamic wear, which I did because the companies who hired me told me this would help me stand out from the crowd. I still follow the Muslim religion, and still pray because it’s a part of what I do, but it doesn’t define me.”

The Refinery29 interview features Nadia making her feature dance debut at members-only adult entertainment lounge HQNYC, wearing a sexy red veil ensemble.

ESCAPE OF THE NIGHTINGALE MENG S/S17

ILS_web_Mcpete Sez
Introducing the MENG S/S 17 women’s loungewear collection. Drawing on the folk stories of China and Europe, we celebrate personal freedom and the natural world through a collection of intricately printed silk pajamas, kimonos, robes and kaftans. Each is embellished with our signature handdrawn artwork and dazzling colour palette in a series of luxurious, supremely comfortable designs.

INSPIRATION
The Eastern princess, coveted for her beauty in the gilded cage of the Emperor’s palace, breaks the bounds of ritual to join with the sky, the air and nature. Lanterns, throne and portraits are replaced with dance, movement and play.
The story is reflected through a contrast of silhouettes, prints and hues that move between the formal and free, as mix and match pieces create a sense of personal expression.

PRINTS
Our original hand-drawn artworks bloom into life as prints and jacquard weaves. Discover cherry blossoms, fantastical song birds, polka dots and psychedelic chrysanthemums – some in neat repeats, others wild and gloriously free.

FABRICS & COLOURS
Cloths include silk jacquard, smooth silk satin and sheer georgette. A reflective and introspective palette contrasts with softly feminine hues and bright dream colours. Deep burgundy and teal, cool cream, silver grey and seafoam, are accented with terracotta red, rose and a myriad of blues.

SHAPES
Pyjamas, kimonos, long and short robes and kaftans are framed with contrast colour and print edgings and linings.
