ON TREND: The Salon International de la Lingerie is set to debut a new fashion-forward section for its January edition. The Uncover area was conceived by Matthieu Pinet, founder of online curated shopping guide The Shape of the Season, and is designed to be an alternative format showcasing an avant-garde selection of products from well-known brands as well as small designers. It is pitched as a “laboratory” intended to reveal future trends by offering a different approach to the traditional trade show format. The section will showcase 40 lingerie, corsetry, loungewear, sportswear and beauty brands, according to show organizer Eurovet.
