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.
Ganni turned over a new leaf for spring 2019, reports @fionawsma from Copenhagen Fashion Week. Instead of sending its signature floral-print dresses down the runway, the brand collaborated with 66 North, a technical outerwear brand, and produced a chic-yet-utilitarian offering that included a tie-dye vest and short set, and leopard-print pieces sprinkled among the khaki parkas and bucket hats. #wwdfashion #ganni #copenhagenfashionweek

“I’ve been an actress since I was like 10 or 12, and then I went to drama school. I have a technique, and I have a process that I bring to every role. And I can talk about it, but that kind of makes it less magic, and also when I talk about it, it makes me feel like I’m full of myself,” ‘Crazy Rich Asians Star’ Constance Wu tells @leighen .(📸: @emmanmontalvan: styled by @micaelaerlanger ) #wwdeye #crazyrichasians #constancewu
