The January 2018 edition of Lingerie Insight is now available to read online, featuring a cover image from luxury lingerie brand Coco de Mer.
From a 2018 retail forecast to show reviews and exclusive interviews, we have a jam-packed issue for you.
The latest edition kicks off with a round-up of industry news, including the announcement that Wacoal has won a top design award, followed by an interview with Coco de Mer CEO Lucy Litwack.
After leading the buyout of Coco de Mer last year, Litwack shares her plans for growing the business both in the UK and internationally.
Over the page, we look back on 2017 and list 10 things the intimate apparel industry learned over the 12 months.
We also reflect on lingerie retailers’ greatest achievements in 2017, from revamping the shop floor to connecting with the local community.
For another special feature, Lingerie Insight editor Sarah Clarke travelled to Paris to interview the deputy general manager of French brand Aubade. She tells us about the Aubade’s intentions to reach a global audience with the launch of a new campaign which invites international audiences to connect with the brand.
Also in the interview hot seat this month were Clare Haines, founder of Lingerie Outlet Store, and her business partner Melissa Burton.
They explain how they have grown the company into a multi-million pound, multi-platform business with 10,000ft2 of warehouse space in just nine years.
Not to be missed this month is the full shortlist for the 2018 UK Lingerie Insight Awards. Turn to page 27 to find out which brands and retailers have made the finals and learn about the ceremony taking place next month.
Also in this edition, nightwear brands share their best-selling collections of AW17 and the organisers behind the Interfiliere fabric trade show present their forecast for SS19.
Finally, lingerie retail consultant Helen Masters reveals three retail trends you won’t be able to ignore in 2018, and we pick out the highlights of the Salon International trade show taking place in Paris later this month.
