Salon International de la Lingerie 2006
A New Culture in lingerie, A New Vocabulary
February, 2nd till 5th 2006, the Salon International de la Lingerie, an unmissable event for professionals in the industry, will reassert its avowed aim: to take stock of the world of lingerie, both in general and in particular, to help those involved gain insight into the landscapes, frontiers and horizons of that world.
Specifically, this means that as lingerie grew into a clothing sector in its own right with its own styles, influences, attitudes, codes, body language, it became essential to give it its own vocabulary, a new terminology better able to describe accurately the new reality in intimate apparel.
Mission accomplished: while the term 'Bodyfashion' has made its mark, its own niche and appeal, the Salon International de la Lingerie, itself has not hesitated to use new words with which to express itself. This new vocabulary will allow exhibitors and visitors to understand one another better and, in general, to agree on what has now become a real culture of the body and its adornment.
So as you walk down the aisles, sectors arranged according to market segments,
fashion and outlook:
Because lingerie is the embodiment of utmost sensuality in fashion, because it links in with the notion of clothing for pleasure, because it likes to flirt with everyone and anyone, the Salon International de la Lingerie brings out the best in everything it represents: charisma, glamour and legitimacy in terms of style and fashion.
An expanding range in a new landscape
More than 90 new brands will join the Salon International de la Lingerie, adding up to
some 570 brands.
The new brands are from France, Italy, Great-Britain, Spain, USA, Germany, Canada,
the Netherlands, Belgium and adding renown names as well as quite new ones, e.g. :
New settings for new fashions
Creating the right atmosphere, setting lingerie and its styles against a backdrop that
is in harmony with it, attracting happy consumers with whom it strikes a chord:
Forum: Le Royaume des Curiosités (Novelty World)
At the entrance to the exhibition this year, this forum cultivates a sense of mystery and enchantment. In the style of a journey to the centre of a world that is both magical and fun, full of illusions, with some arresting surprises, it takes the visitor - and the potential customer - straight to the embodiment of modern lingerie: the utmost in elegance and subtle grace, not all-revealing but not exactly all-concealing either. The object of desire par excellence - accessible to everyone, at their leisure, at their pleasure.
There are about 165 styles on show here ... divided up into four sectors, each representing the various current lingerie markets.
La Maison des délices (House of delights)
Le Manoir des Illusions (Mirage Manor)
Nid d’amour (Love nest)
Pavillon des légendes (Mythical pavilion)
