Charles_Roussel -20150921-2586Among the new features presented this year, the Creative Lab, a new format trend presentation created by Concepts Paris for Interfilière New York showcased the mill’s technological innovations and was accessible all day long for visitors to discover.

The morning began with a trend presentation by Jos Berry, CEO and Founder of Concepts Paris, with a focus on Spring/Summer 2016 to guide the attendees through the offerings presented on the show floor. At 11 a.m., INVISTA presented LYCRA® BEAUTY COOLING technology.

Charles_Roussel -20150921-2503The highlight of the day was the much-anticipated Summer 2017 trend preview by Jos Berry, which gave designers an edge on the future trends.

The three events were a success and created a very positive atmosphere. The first trend presentation offered keys for visitors to shop the floor, the Summer 2017 preview insight for them to project into their collection and the LYCRA® BEAUTY presentation an eye into future and how to go further.

Charles_Roussel -20150921-2250The day ended with a cocktail reception where Pierre-Nicolas HURSTEL, CEO of Eurovet Americas declared:

“We are thrilled by the results of this 3rd edition, the energy on the show floor, the extremely professional atmosphere and the amount of new business relationships created are in line with our very high expectations and our goal to establish Interfiliere New York as the reference for our categories in North America”

“I would like to thank the Eurovet teams all over the world who selected the best international mills to join this edition, Jos Berry CEO of Concept Paris who brought us an exclusive and incredibly meaningful content through the creative lab and last but not least our partner the LYCRA® brand who has been amazing in supporting and contributing to make this show a success”

We are looking forward to the next edition of Interfiliere New York in September 2016. In the meantime, the next Interfilière event will be held on October 12-13 in Shanghai, with much anticipation.

Charles_Roussel -20150921-2624The LYCRA® brand’s newest platform, LYCRA® BEAUTY COOLING technology, was designed in response to consumer needs for increased sophistication and comfort performance in the shapewear category. The foundation provides the wearer outstanding shaping with long-lasting freshness and permanent moisture management. Consumer research conducted by INVISTA indicated that *78% of female consumers find moisture management in shapewear to be extremely or very important, with only *40% satisfied. This new technology meets this need.

Charles_Roussel -20150921-2764“The secret is COOLMAX® Technology,” said Arnaud Ruffin, Strategy and Business Development Director at INVISTA Apparel. “It features fibers with an engineered cross-section, enabling moisture to reach the fabric’s outer surface where it evaporates quickly.”

Ruffin added, “LYCRA® BEAUTY COOLING technology addresses the problem of shapewear discomfort due to body temperature, which was reported to be a challenge at the consumer level. Fabrics from international mills are already available, and we expect first adoptions to hit shelves in the coming seasons.”

Baci Lingerie Announces Successful Exhibition at Interfilière Paris

New Corsets & Fetish Collections Receive
Overwhelming Praise from European Distributors & Retailers!
Baci Lingerie concludes its successful exhibition at Interfilière Paris, held this past weekend at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles. Throughout Interfilière weekend, European distributors and retailers alike took particular note of the luxury lingerie company’s newest collections, Corsets by Baci and Fetish by Baci.
“The response to our new Corsets and Fetish Collections has been overwhelmingly positive,” says Baci Lingerie Director of Global Sales and Operations Christian Savoie. “Interfilière Paris provides the perfect venue to reconnect with our established European distributors and develop new relationships. We are pleased with the positive response and orders we have received for our new products.”
Corsets by Baci Collection is composed of well crafted and fashion runway inspired ready-to-wear styles, as well as classic bedroom styles, in two groupings of 14 styles. Featuring steel boning, which are stronger and more durable than traditional “lingerie corsets” and bustiers, Corsets by Baci aims to better create the silhouette women are seeking through corsets.

Fetish by Baci is a collection of three fetish-inspired lines of lingerie offerings. The lines, Subtle Obsessions, Playful Intentions, and, Dark Desires provide consumers with different levels of fetish wear, so anyone from the novice to the discerning dominatrix may always look her sexiest when embracing her kinkier side.
The new lines made a great impression on international distributors, as did Baci Lingerie’s commitment to support them. “We feel Baci is truly here to support us now, and our future together will be a very positive one,” says Baci France Office Manager Laure Lopy.
Representatives from Baci Scandinavia seconded the sentiment, stating, “There is a renewed faith in the Baci brand and the Baci family. We are very excited about developing and growing the brand in Scandinavia.”
Baci Germany reps added, “We feel very comfortable with the people from Baci, and we know they will be there to support us in any way we need in order to be successful.”
Celebrating refinement at its most impressive, Interfilière Paris brings together the entire intimates and beachwear industry in the same pavilion as the Salon International de la Lingerie. A unique concept, the French expo offers the sector’s professionals a meeting place to discuss excellence in fabrics, the most sought-after accessories, design know-how, and share inspiration, while providing outlets for each and every element in the creation of finished products. On each day of the January Paris expo, trend-forecasting agencies partnering with the show offered forward-looking overviews of the Spring-Summer 2015 season and a preview of Autumn-Winter 2015/2016.
“The energy at the Paris Show really represented the drive behind Baci’s 2014 plans,” explains Baci owner, Frank Koretsky. “Meeting and working with our distributors, discussing and designing strategies, and showing the attendees our latest creations definitely helped to further secure Baci as a Global brand. Our 2014 schedule is filled with exciting changes, and we’re polishing up details for some big surprises in 2015.”

The Introduction of Cosmetic Textile in the Intimates Sector in Asia

 INTERFILIERE Hong Kong March 26-27, 2013 at the
    Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center 
With the focus on how we look on the outside and also from the inside, Cosmetic Textile is the next best thing! 
From the research Eurovet and INTERFILIERE Hong Kong did in 2012, it became clear that many women and men wear intimates such as shape wear to look slimmer, feel better and to be fashionable. 
Brands like Spanx are trendsetters when it comes to shape wear. Many fashion brands today use the same fabrics and materials in garments in order to create the same slimming effect that many look for. 

Fabric manufacturers have not sit still and keep on looking for new innovations and possibilities to make lingerie and intimates more functional. The market of Cosmetic Textile is quickly developing with currently a growth rate of 35% per year on average. 
The field of micro-encapsulation is used in different sectors from medicine to food and beverage. For Cosmetic Textile there are 2 main uses; dermocosmetics which are used for skincare. 
The effects of this application include slimming, toning, moisturizing, anti-age… This is the largest segment at this point in time. 
The second use is for aromatherapy which involves the cosmetic textile to release a fragrance when in ontact with the human body. The ingredients used for the aromatherapy are mainly essential oils. 
For the first time INTERFILIERE Hong Kong will have a special dedicated information point and conference on the use of micro-encapsulation in Cosmetic Textile and what to expect in the future in order to inform and coach industry professionals.
