In a fast paced frenetic world, an energetic vibe of creativity and decoration appeals in inspiration as fabrics for intimate apparel just got exciting. Expect to see an explosion of raised surfaces, irregular structures and multiple applications on one fabric in order to express a new direction. From laser cut to drop stitch, the mood here is 'anything goes'. Deliberately clash and collide colors, trims and textiles in creating a modern day melee.

Prints continue to feature, but look to applying on irregular substrates from openwork jacquards to folded plisse effects that distort the relied when worn. Micro light single and double layered jacquards create rippled and blistered effects and super soft mesh is updated through openwork details, flocking, embroidery and printing.

The collision of creative resources also applies to color, look to shocking and intense tones coming through, working alongside traditional tones. It’s a mood of contrasting ideas, as opposites attract, colliding, but in the end uniting with an energetic vibe.

intimate - mix it up.
