PARIS — The sense of a renewal was tangible at the recent Salon International de la Lingerie and Interfilière trade shows here, with heritage brands visibly shifting to a more consumer-oriented discourse and a strong focus on offering solutions for retailers seeking to boost their business in what remains a difficult market.
The events, which ran from Jan. 20-22 at Porte de Versailles, both saw slight upticks in visitor numbers, according to show organizer Eurovet, which no longer discloses traffic data. Premium and VIP visitors were up 12 percent at SIL and 5 percent at Interfilière, Eurovet said.
Super-influencer @chiaraferragni doesn't miss a beat— or a party. Last night, she inaugurated Pomellato's newest boutique on Rodeo Drive, decked out in bling from the jewelry brand. At the event, Ferragni took some time to sit down with us to discuss motherhood, being a newlywed, and the hotly-anticipated documentary she is currently filming.

As the conversation around sustainability only grows stronger in fashion circles, Everlane has made a new declaration: it’s saying goodbye to virgin plastic. The company, whose ethos is all about “radical transparency,” in terms of pricing and ethical factories, plans to be completely free of virgin plastics by 2021. “We’re producing millions of units and every unit that goes out is wrapped in plastic,” said founder and CEO, Michael Preysman. “At the beginning, it was like, ‘Hey, let’s just take off all these plastic bags.’ There are a lot of complications to that. Everything you buy in the world comes wrapped in plastic when it comes out of the factory.”
