In 2010, Interfilière is keeping pace with market trends and developing a new “loungerie” sector!

FASHION AND INFORMATION TAKE CENTRE STAGE!
With its striking new linear display creating a focal point in hall 3, the General Forum positively vibrates at the heart of the show: trends, colours, designs, innovations, prototypes, new ideas … the most stunning fabrics take to the limelight in an explosion of striking images, packed full of fashion information.
A veritable celebration of creative freedom and innovation, this space is Interfilière’s number one highlight!
Themes for Summer 2011:
Memories of beauty, refinement in soft colourations and sophisticated material mixes…
An atmosphere heavily loaded with, memories… but reinvented by using, technical innovations. To maintain the, feeling of softness and a nostalgia of charm, there are sophisticated constructions, digital, prints, placed jacquards, audacious accents, and subtle featherweight effects, silks, fine cottons, blends. Then there are the refined, luxury lines of coordinates made to last: it’s the triumphant return of the camisole, bodies, teddies… all expressions of an eternal seduction.
Happiness lies in the surprise of unexpected encounters and in love for what the others do…
Happiness lies in non conformism. Not a question of being good or reasonable but the passion colours evoke, explosions of prints, geometrical accents, Indian flowers, folk music kitsch, cartoon influences and naïve primitives create a wild patchwork. A liberated celebration of all that everyday life is about. Amusing creativity, beachwear influences, mixes of ethnic and otherworld, ardour and femininity, the whole based on strong lines. And the urge to thumb your nose at depressing themes!
Exotic and exuberant contrast with a desert landscape of sun and shadow and rustic beauty aged by the years…
Pleasure gorged on sun and freshness. On the one hand, the exotic – exuberant nature inspired by Gauguin, luxuriant foliage and cat-like beachwear motifs. On the other hand, the desert – a landscape of sand, primitive embroideries, Berber stripes, beautiful laces patinated by the years, ikats and metal accents.
For ample shapes such as caftans or djellabahs, dry knits, charming linens and cottons for the Loungerie trend.
The essence of a new luxury, ostentatious and astonishing with a hint of theatrical and urban roughness…
Haute couture plus high-tech. The scene is ostentatious, emphatically astonishing, unique. In the corridors of this new theatricality … surface effects, contrasts of opaque and transparency, flocking, placed burnt-outs, transfer prints, graphics and bondage accents. Spectacular decorative touches, large coloured stones, vintage embroideries. This is the essence of the new luxury, exceptional beauty ready to conquer the land of modernity.
In addition to the themes for Summer 2011, the General Forum will take an in-depth look at three fast-developing markets: loungerie, men’s underwear and shapewear.
Accessories and trims will be placed in the spotlight on a second forum in the Access Folies sector, it will feature an “Al fresco lunch” theme: showing off the lightness and finesse of accessories in an airy display based around nature and freedom.
The show will also include daily trends conferences presented by the design agencies Nelly Rodi, Carlin International, Concepts Paris, Promostyl, etc.
