Last month we hopped on the Eurostar to beautiful Paris for two of the world's largest lingerie trade fairs Interfilliere and Salon De La Lingerie. We caught up with lingerie brands Kiss Me Deadly and Playful Promises, met some fabulous new designers and got an eyeful of future trends on the way.
It seems we're a little ahead of the times in terms of trend prediction. We spotted a lot of the larger brands doing big 50's knickers and stitch detail bras, reminiscent of the traditional bullet bra style. We've already seen the vintage lingerie trend peeking through in fashion-forward stores like Topshop and Urban Outfitters but predict that retro lingerie will be hitting the high street in a big way this year. Think longline retro bras and waist-high briefs as outerwear this Spring.. that is, if you're brave enough of course!
Having spent two days at the Paris Expo, we hit the galleries and made the most of the rest of our stay in the beautiful City. Sigh..not sure about you but I could definitely live here.
