REVIEWING IGEDO AND LYON: Lots of seamless effects, sheer looks and cosmetic nude tones were among the big ideas spotted at Europe's two innerwear trade shows last month by Paul Heron, vice president of True Form Inc., a division of Maidenform. Heron presented his overview of the two shows--Igedo Dessous in Dusseldorf and Lyon Mode City in Lyon--at a session sponsored last week by The Underfashion Club.
Over 200 industry executives attended Heron's talk and slide show at the 60 East 60 Club in New York. Other trends noted by Heron: an abundance of lace-up corset styles; Provencal prints in bold brights on a white ground; crossover cotton underwear items that have an activewear flavor; asymmetric hemlines and drawstring treatments in daywear and sleepwear, and lots of pretty trims, such as slotted lace and ribbon combinations in all categories.
Heron further noted that there was an "emergence of bra slips" in England, specifically at Marks & Spencer, which featured a "major display." High-premium fabrics such as blends of Tactel nylon and Lycra spandex and Supplex nylon and Lycra, also were in abundance at major European specialty stores, he said.
