Trends Spring/Summer 2006
The Lyon, mode city (lingerie/beachwear) and Interfilière (fabrics) platform provides a wide panel of expertise, where innovation, technical progress and know-how are closely interwoven for the greatest benefit of the professionals who meet there in an established friendly atmosphere.
For the 2006 Summer season Lyon mode city defined four fashion themes :
Innocent Pleasures - Delicate Sensuality - Latin Chic - Nature‘s Extravagances
This is a breath of fresh, young air, so well-behaved, a girly grace that dominates with softness. Under the influence of charm, the pairings of shapes and motifs are full of a new modesty that is happy to laugh and show off.
On the lingerie side, there is, then, a "street trousseau" that doesn’t
hesitate to use all the most joyously contemporary arguments : feathers, laces or small flowers thus
emerge from their classic romantic paths by playing on surprising marriages. Tattoo motifs enliven
a camisole and boyshort combo in candy pink at 6xty 8ight ; seersucker stripes flirt with lace,
and a flowered bustier slums it with mock lacing at Morgan ; the most vivid blue doesn’t hesitate
to entwine itself with softer notes at No Romeo ; the most elegant lace dominates in contrast
with a seamless laser cut-out at Leonisa; flounces and other tender pinks lighten up with turquoise
notes at EDC by esprit.
On the lingerie side, this is a trip to the edge of exotic chic that is
unabashedly rich. Pairings that are as carefree as your latest shopping obsession : florals, sequins,
tulle, rhinestones, satin, motifs appear on a bustier, its thong and its little crossover dress at Verde
Veronica ; draped, satin, lace, crystal and silver-grey beading show off on a panty and its top at
Leonisa ; tulle, lace and rhinestones entwine a camisole and its panty at Pleasure State;
flounces, sequins and flowers adorn a camisole and its kimono at NK Romance a comic-strip
print embroidered with flowers shows off at A jour. Another bold alliance, orange and pink enter
the heart of what's new : prints at Lejaby, on a flounced, asymmetric nightshirt at Börner, in a radiant
camisole style at Marjolaine. And finally, glamour, plays on asymmetry, false layering or draped
effects; for a seamless tank top in chestnut and fuchsia at Feel Fine, a double bra in trompe
l'oeil at A Jour, a mock two-piece in fuchsia lace at Selmark.
Looks that can kill and a silk-scarf influence : Nuances are intensified, and luxury dresses itself with a frenzy of prints heavy with shadows and light. Bright shine, graphic chic, flounces and a bathing beauty spirit from the 1950’s : between a cocktail ambiance and a vacation atmosphere. We choose both.
On the lingerie side, there is a "Latin spirit" with ready-to-wear accents,
where graphic stripes and dark colors take center stage : an ensemble in floral madras underlined
with lace and accessorized with flounced flowers at Sonia Rykiel, embroidered tulle enhanced
with braided straps at Chasney Beauty, nautical stripes highlighted with a yellow flower at
Scandale, wild silk with flowers painted as though by hand at Lise Charmel, graphic camisole
in black and pink with satin straps at Pleasure State, but also, for him, a tank top in black
and red mesh with rhinestones at QZ or the ensemble with a kangaroo brief and a brightly
striped tank top at Sonia Rykiel. A stunning, sun-drenched "show" as well : more covered
shapes and other details that no longer want to have anything to hide. A crossover top in
embroidered crepe and a powder-pink bustier that is totally bedazzled at Cadolle, a black
bra with rhinestones that fastens with a bejeweled chain at EDC by esprit, tulle embroidered
with tulle for a babydoll at Little Kiss, and black dots on a yellow ground and flounces for
an ensemble by Scandale…
This is a dive into the heart of a modern jungle, with all the flora and fauna that go with it : reptile prints, savannah nuances, tropical bouquet, magical amulets, spidery prints, wild scratchings, solar safaris. all of it is made with ultra-technical comfort.
On the lingerie side, this is a revisited colonial style, "African queen"
with aristocratic chic and sophisticated wellness : a pleated tulle bra from Lejaby, micromodal
and ultra-soft beige silk with embroideries and asymmetric laces for a thong, bra and elastic-waist
skirt from Feel Fine, an alliance of linen and lace in flounced white and beige for a camisole, pants
and its kimono from NK Romance, crêpe and lace in savannah tones for a bolero and its pant
from NK Romance, stretch satin, lace straps and a belted waist for a bustier from Pleasure
State, pleated, laser-cut and a laced thong for an ensemble from Jacalyn Bennett. Naturally,
prints and animal effects also tame all kinds of shapes : a blazer jacket for a zebra-print pyjama
at Marjolaine, real feathers with lace, ribbons, satin and shells at IC Pearl…
