The latest edition of Lingerie Insight is now available to read online, featuring the latest business news, industry interviews, trends features and a special unveiling of the 2016 UK Lingerie Awards finalists.
The November issue kicks off with the news that online sales at Coco de Mer have shot up by almost 40% in the last seven months following the successful launch of its Fifty Shades Darker lingerie range.
The surge in sales also shows that the vote to leave the EU may have benefited the luxury lingerie sector to the sterling’s devaluation.
Our front section also covers a new range of plus-size nursing bras by Cake Lingerie and the appointment of a new sales manager at Vanity Fair Brands Europe.
Over on our analysis pages, a lingerie retailer based in the East Midlands condemns a Facebook group that claims to offer expert bra measuring advice.
The boutique owner, who wishes to remain anonymous, has accused Boob or Bust of writing ‘ill-informed’ and ‘damaging’ reviews about lingerie stores and failing to give them a right to reply.
Also this month, we sit down with former lingerie retailer and Instagram sensation Alexandra Miro to discuss her new sexy and sculpting swimwear collection.
The former creative director of online lingerie store Fox & Rose has developed a new collection that is designed to lift and shape the bottom and emphasis the bust.
The collection is a response to her fruitless search for a stylish on-piece during her time as a digital influencer.
In another exclusive interview, Lingerie Insight editor Sarah Clarke speaks with Isabel Baert, the new UK managing director of Rigby & Peller.
She lays out her plans to evolve the lingerie retailer’s renowned fitting and styling service, both in store and online.
Over the page, Lingerie Insight reveals the finalists of the 2016 UK Lingerie Awards. The standard of entries this year was incredibly high, which made judging a tough task, and we would like to thank everyone who put so much hard work into contributing to the nominations process.
With the shortlist now drawn up, senior members of the industry have been invited to vote for their winners via an exclusive online ballot.
Also this month, we took a trip to Sheffield to visit independent lingerie retailer Perfect Fit. Owner Jill Axe shares the secrets of her on-going success, 18 years after opening her boutique.
Meanwhile in London, Bordelle founder Alexandra Popa explains how her directional lingerie collections have become everyday fashion statements in an in-depth interview.
Finally, over on our trends pages, INVISTA, owner of the Lycra fibre brand, presents its 2017-18 legwear trends, and we list the industry’s most sexy and stylish boudoir pieces that can be worn from day to night.
