Independent lingerie and swimwear brand Lascivious has been voted as one of the coolest brands in the UK.
The 2016-17 CoolBrands listing is the result of an extensive voting process that involved 36 influencers – including musicians, food experts and media heavyweights and 2,500 members of the British public.
Influencers who voted included musicians DJ Fresh and Labrinth, MOBO Founder Kanya King MBE and fashion designer Melissa Odabash.
The latest CoolBrands results – headed by Apple, Glastonbury and Netflix – underline Lascivious’ prestige and allure within the UK.
Competition is substantial, with thousands of brands from over 50 sectors considered by the voters; only those achieving top scores qualify for CoolBrands status.
Stephen Cheliotis, chairman of the CoolBrands Council, said: “CoolBrands status illustrates that Lascivious is rated highly by both influencers and the British public. This is proof that the brand is considered highly original and innovative, two factors voters consider.
“It also clearly shows that the brand is desired, a lustre that often means it’s chosen ahead of peers. CoolBrands status is also testament to the brand being seen as authentic and being passionate about what it does. Although most CoolBrands do not strive to be perceived as cool, being recognised independently in this way is naturally a wonderful affirmation that what the brand is doing is recognised, valued and respected by consumers and those influencing them.”
