FEMME FATALE  Direction File Download

Sexy and seductive styling emerges as lingerie looks to the staple glamorous elements of the past. Traditional French lingerie is reworked in today’s modern fabrics combined with an edgier erotic/gothic look. This is lingerie that is destined to be seen, with past silhouettes revised as structured bras, girdles and suspenders inspire not just for fashion lingerie but for fashion forward shapewear too. Decorative and built up fabrics, ranging from molded stretch diaphanous lace to satin warp knits with clean cut finishing for a lacquered and leather look, add to the overall feel.

Black is key, with creora® black intensifying black tones while abstract jacquards working bright with matte synthetics with creora® create optical matte/glossy details. Soft stretch power mesh features for an edgier feel with mono and bi stretch lace narrows and allover qualities worked on bare and diaphanous bases.
