The latest edition of Lingerie Insight is available to read online page-by-page, packed with the latest business news, designer interviews and trends features.
The December issue kicks off with an exclusive story about Mimi Holliday seeking investors to boost growth capital. The British label, part of the Damaris Group of brands, is embarking on a funding round after 14 years in the industry.
Other top stories include the launch of Naomi Campbell’s first lingerie collection and the announcement that intimate apparel trade show Mode City will move to Lyon in July.
Across our analysis pages, we take an in-depth look into how La Perla has turned around its fortunes by investing in an impressive retail development programme, with the refurbishment of 20 shops around the world and the opening of a giant new flagship.
We also reveal lingerie retailers’ thoughts on the rise of the Living Wage and explain why lingerie topped the target list for shoplifters in 2015.
In the interview hot seat this month is Boux Avenue founder Theo Paphitis, who opened a flagship store on Oxford Street in November.
Paphitis chats to Lingerie Insight editor Sarah Clarke about his thoughts on joining one of the world’s busiest high streets.
Also this month, we sit down with Juliet McLeod, founder of Cheshire-based independent lingerie retailer Ayla Rose.
McLeod has recently appointed a creative director to expand the brand on an international level. In an exclusive report, she explains how the retailer intends to achieve this ambition.
Shifting from retail to wholesale, Lingerie Insight explores how British nightwear brand Cyberjammies has achieved exceptional financial growth over the last year and reports on its plans to add a children’s range to its portfolio.
Over the page, we reflect on the top retail trends of 2015, from British retailers moving to the US, to luxury lingerie gaining in value. We also list the top 10 lingerie store openings of 2015.
Also in this issue, Lingerie Insight picks out buyers’ favourite lingerie and swimwear styles of SS16 and explains why they are likely to fly out of the shops next summer.
