The latest edition of Lingerie Insight is available to read online page-by-page, packed with designer interviews, retail tips, trends features and the results of our first-ever Salary Survey.
The February issue kicks off with the latest business stories, including the news that Bendon has marked its first foray into swimwear with Heidi Klum Swim.
The move follows the successful launch of Heidi Klum Intimates in January 2015, which sold in more than 2,000 stockists worldwide.
Wacoal Europe also made the headlines with its announcement that CEO Tracy Lewis will leave the company after 11 years at the helm.
Also in this issue, we talk to Panache Sport about its latest collaboration with boxing champion and February’s cover star Nicola Adams.
In an exclusive interview, the brand explains how it hopes to champion body confidence and encourage women to channel their inner sporting star in the run up to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Adams herself also explains how her Panache Sports bras have helped her in her training.
Over the page, lingerie experts including Boux Avenue founder Theo Paphitis and Next lingerie buyer Sophy Sollars offer their top tips on driving in-store sales ahead of Valentine’s Day. We also list our top five till-side products, perfect for gifts.
Also this month, we have published the results of the first Lingerie Insight Salary and Job Satisfaction Survey.
In a special report, we pinpoint the key factors that are motivating staff and shaping movement in the industry job market. We also reveal the jobs offering the biggest wages and, perhaps most interestingly, the average annual salary of a professional working in the lingerie sector.
Continuing the HR theme, we also list the top 10 things you need to know about the Workplace Pensions Act, a new piece of legislation that requires all business owners to automatically enrol staff in a pension scheme that both employer and employee must contribute to.
Online retail giant Lovehoney also features in the February issue after being named the UK’s Favourite Lingerie Retailer at the 2015 UK Lingerie Awards.
Apparel category manager Gemma Pestel discusses the success of the brand’s intimate apparel business, which launched just two years ago.
In the Products & Trends section of the magazine, Lingerie Insight rounds up the show highlights from January’s The Lingerie Edit and previews the brands that will exhibit at Moda later this month.
