Buyers were combing the aisles of the Intermezzo trade show in Manhattan with warm thoughts on their minds. Shopping for resort, as well as goods for immediate fall delivery, retailers said they were pleased with the ath-leisure looks, printed dresses, innovative knitwear, swimwear and cover-ups on display.
The three-day show, which ended Tuesday, was held at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and featured 300 exhibitors, equal to a year ago. Bailey 44, Minnie Rose, Milly, Lilla P and Free People were among those booths busy with buyers. This season, ENK added a new area called Flex, a platform dedicated to activewear, featuring 11 vendors, that attracted a lot of attention.
