CurveNY Trend Report: Spring/Summer 2015

As a lot of y’all know by now, I LOVE going to cover the upcoming lingerie seasons at CurveNY. It’s both a fun time to connect with designers, teachers, writers, bloggers, retailers, and PR reps that I haven’t seen in a while (or have only previously met online), and it’s an incredible opportunity to take a look at movements in the market, get a sense of trends, hear from industry professionals about their experiences in retail and wholesale, get insight into different designers’ processes, and discover new and up-and-coming brands as they break into the industry. The Spring/Summer shows, which feature swimwear more heavily than the Fall/Winter shows, tend to feel a little more vibrant and bustling, and this year was no exception.

I once again had the pleasure of covering the full-bust brands with my good lingerie friend Miss Underpinnings, and we’ve partnered on this post to bring you our overview of what the Spring/Summer 2015 collections have in store. You can see our trend report for the Fall/Winter 2014 season here.

Note: Eveden (parent company of Elomi, Freya, Fantasie, Goddess, and Huit) wasn’t giving any press appointments, and when Cecily did manage to get an appointment some of the samples were MIA, so unfortunately our coverage of those popular brands is a little thin. I’ve tried to snap pics of my lookbooks where possible.

COLOR TRENDS

Yellow

Spring/Summer 2015 Color Trend: Yellow

Clockwise from top left: Panache Tango; Freya Deco Zest; Panache Andorra; Sunday Intimates Camille; Curvy Kate Dreamcatcher; Tutti Rouge Liliana; Cleo Swim Betty; Tutti Rouge Tallulah Sunshine

Without a doubt, yellow is the standout color of full-bust lingerie for Spring/Summer 2015. We saw it EVERYWHERE. Even if it wasn’t the most common color story we noticed, it’s such an unusual color that it makes its cheerful presence felt. Panache has brought out Tango and Andorra in bright, chipper lemon shades, Cleo offers a delightful yellow polka dot bikini, Sunday Intimates created a lovely yellow watercolor chiffon lingerie-and-robe collection, and Tutti Rouge went for a full blast of cheer with both Liliana and Tallulah Sunshine. A unanimous Miss Underpinnings/Sweet Nothings favorite was Curvy Kate’s new Lemon Fizz color for Dreamcatcher; it’s guaranteed to put you in a good mood! For more petite busts, check out Gossard’s pretty Romance bra and Huit’s lovely Melisande, back in beautiful Bouton D’Or.  The only yellow that didn’t charm us was Freya’s unfortunate zest/zebra colorway for Deco. While we’re sure this combination will have its fans, we are united in our loathing.

Mint/Pistachio/Pale Green/Ice Blue

Spring/Summer 2015 Color Trend: Mint/Pistachio

Clockwise from top left: Fortnight Mira; Panache Rhapsody and Envy; Tutti Rouge Nicole; Freya Eden, Freya Starlet; Sunday Intimates Camille; Fortnight Ivy; Tutti Rouge Beatrice; Mimi Holliday Finch

While the whole season is rife with pretty, pale, feminine colors, I (Sweets) have a major soft spot for mint and other pale green/blue colors.  I don’t know where this love comes from, as I don’t wear these colors terribly well, yet here we are, with a season full of soft, fresh shades that I adored. I particularly admired Fortnight’s gorgeous Mira longline bra and slip in an amazing Celadon colorway, Freya’s brought out a beautiful sheer embroidered collection called Starlet in Peppermint that reminded us of former Fauve (RIP) styles, and I (Sweets again) fell head over heels for Mimi Holliday’s delightful Hummingbird range, with sheer dotted icy blue mesh and sweet pink trim.

Miss Underpinnings hates it. We’ve agreed to disagree. Some of the big brands have also brought out lighter shades for their most popular collections: Elomi’s Betty is in Pistachio, Fantasie’s Rebecca is in Sea Mist, and Panache’s new Rhapsody as well as firm favorite Envy come in a lovely crisp Mint.

Bright Pink/Coral

Spring/Summer 2015 Color Trend: Bright Pink and Coral

Clockwise from top left: Curvy Kate Daisie; Fantasie Susanna; Parfait Elena; Panache Porcelain Grace; Miss Mandalay Paige; Parfait Elena; Curvy Kate Madagascar; Mimi Holliday Flamingo; Cleo Marcie; Panache Jasmine; Fantasie Rebecca; Curvy Kate Princess; Claudette Paloma; Curvy Kate Soda Pop; Miss Mandalay Paris; Panache Fontaine

While not exactly new, you really can’t escape pink for Spring/Summer, especially in full-bust land. While there are certainly some pretty baby pinks out there, like Sunday Intimates’ beautiful Janine collection, featuring a lace bra and brief with coordinating sheer lace romper, Freya’s Icon in Milkshake or Rapture in Bubblegum, for the most part we saw some pretty loud, screamy pinks.

We’ve talked with each other a lot this week about how our tastes have evolved both as we get a little older and as we spend more time in the industry, and this color trend really gets a big shrug from both of us. Parfait introduces new style Elena in Raspberry that’s so dark and shiny and we found it a little cheesy. Fantasy brings out Susanna in Fuchsia, Rebecca in Honeysuckle and a totally wan Rosewood color for Ivana that’s particularly disappointing after the striking turquoise for F/W14. Mimi Holliday’s Flambeau collection in dark pink/coral also gets a “pass” from us, and we were equally unmoved by the new floral for Panache’s Jasmine and the Sherbet color for both Clara and Porcelain Grace. Panache also added pink or coral to the Sports bra and two Sculptresse styles (Flirtini and Pure Lace). Curvy Kate’s Cerise color for Daisie and Princess struck us as a little “Barbie”, but we both liked the coral Poppy Print for new style Madagascar. The exception to our general pink indifference? Claudette’s vibrant Strawberry Crush and Raspberryade colorways for Dessous and Paloma, both of which feel rich, zingy, and fun.

Periwinkle/Soft Blue

Spring/Summer 2015 Color Trend: Periwinkle and Soft Blue

Clockwise from top left: Tutti Rouge Liliana; Angela Friedman bed jacket; Parfait Casey; Empreinte Paris; Sunday Intimates Janine; Claudette Dessous; Cleo Minnie; Claudette Paloma; Parfait Charlotte

Another of Sweets’ favorites! We’ve seen a lot of brands playing around with navy, royal blue, and cobalt in the past few seasons, and while I’ll happily wear blue lingerie any day of the week, these softer shades feel really fresh for Spring. We spotted them at Claudette (Dessous and Paloma in Periwinkle), in the stretch lace trim for Freya’s bold new Minx with a keyhole gore and cage back (more below), at Elomi in the new Chambray colorway for Caitlyn, and at Panache in a few styles: Cleo’s popular Minnie collection returns in an unpadded bra and a padded longline (WHY PADDED, AGAIN, moans Sweets), and we LOVED the gorgeous Deep Lilac color for Sculptresse’s new Liberty collection.

Finally, Parfait has once again knocked it out of the park with new a new Icy Blue colorway for Charlotte (as well as their Casey collection).

Neon

Spring/Summer 2015 Color Trend: Neon

Clockwise from top left: Freya Siren and Rapture; Mimi Holliday Flamingo; Freya Ignite and Parade longline; Cleo Maya; Mimi Holliday Citrus Swallowtail; Freya Firecracker; Mimi Holliday Parakeet; Freya Deco Vibe and Deco Zest

Neon is an ever-popular story in lingerie, particularly in full-bust land. Of the afore-mentioned Freya Deco in zest we shall speak no more, but Claudette? We’ll happily wear Dessous in Orange Soda, Gia Red, and Raspberryade, along with Fishnet in Gia Red/Peacoat, any day of the week. Miss Mandalay made her first appearance at CurveNY this season, and she delighted us: in addition to classics like Paris in Pink and Fuchsia, the fantastically cool and sexy halter bikinis are super striking in fluoro yellow and hot pinks and purples. Cleo’s Marcie returns as a new basic style (beige and black), but the fashion color gets an update with super-bright Magenta/Orange. Finally, you can’t talk about neons without talking about Mimi Holliday. As usual, the brand offers a huge new collection packed with new shapes and styles. While we particularly loved Toco Toucan and Parakeet, with their small hits of neon dots against black or white bases, other collections are less shy: some of the pretty Hummingbird pieces have neon pink lace trim, Cockatoo is a vibrant fluorescent pink, and Tree Nymph is a striking neon lime with soft, ballet pink ribbon trim.  This season sees three collections featuring oversized lip-shaped embroidery in bold neon: Kittiwake (orange/pink contrast), Flamingo (pink), and Citrus Swallowtail (lime green). While we liked some of the trims and one of the shapes (the Flamingo all-pink bodysuit), in general these styles left us cold, especially in the face of some of Mimi’s other beautiful, subtler collections.

Purple

Spring/Summer 2015 Color Trend: Purple

Clockwise from top left: Curvy Kate Bardot; Panache Black Loire; Panache Fern; Curvy Kate Smoothie; Miss Mandalay Amelie; Fantasie Eclipse; Curvy Kate Jewel; Miss Mandalay Paris

Miss Underpinnings wouldn’t even talk to Sweets about this one, that’s how over it she is, so everyone buy her a drink as a reward for completing this particular photo collage. She earned it. We get it: purple is popular for a reason. It’s a livelier alternative to black, it works well with a variety of skin tones, and it’s a change of pace from the beige/black/white/red rut that a lot of brands get stuck in. Nevertheless, it was everywhere for Fall/Winter 2014, and it will be everywhere again for Spring/Summer 2015. Curvy Kate brings us Smoothie and Jewel in a princessy pale purple Topaz, with sheer K-cup babydoll Bardot featuring purple embroidery, and Panache introduces softer lilac shades for their popular Andorra and Fern styles. Masquerade cut the Loire style last season, but Panache Black brings it back in royal purple. Our beloved Miss Mandalay will unveil a vibrant ultra violet Amelie as well as a neon fuschia for Paris. Great news for purple lovers, but we’re feeling a little fatigue.

Blush

Spring/Summer 2015 Color Trend: Blush and Ballet Pink

Evollove [style unknown]; Panache Olivia; Mimi Holliday Puffin; Fantasie Rebecca Mirage; Sunday Intimates Janine; Fantasie Elodie; Miss Mandalay Amelie; Panache Black Lucia; Mimi Holliday; Freya Deco Charm; Mimi Holliday Golden Helicon; Fortnight Ara

Our favorite color story by far, we saw an incredible number of collections in pale peach, ballet pink (more below), dusty rose, and blush tones, and we couldn’t get enough of them. This color is a lingerie classic that immediately calls to mind retro, classic pieces from the early part of the 20th century, it works beautifully with a range of styles, from bridal to boudoir to pin-up, and some skin tones can even wear the color as a neutral under white tops. We fell head over heels for Miss Mandalay’s new powder color for Amelie, saw it from Freya for both a new longline collection and a new style for Deco, and loved the blush color (and unusual stitching on the briefs) for Panache Black’s strapless Lucia style (Sweets would like to register her sorrow that the coordinating basque was, naturally, canceled).

Panache Black will also introduce their first-ever K-cup style with Eclipse, featuring pale pink cups and contrasting black ribbon trim. We also adored Mimi Holliday’s take on the color trend, particularly the adorable Puffin range with its beautiful floral-button-like embroidery, Lovebird with an elegant champagne and blush silk color scheme, and the lovely Golden Helicon collection with gold dots and pretty broderie trim. Curvy Kate is bringing out a simple, sheer, slightly lower priced new style called Florence in a soft dusty blush that we both loved, and Panache will introduce new style Olivia in apricot with matching high-waist knickers that our rep called “more mature/granny-style” that we called “adorable/beautiful/we want it”.

OTHER STORIES

White/Bridal

Spring/Summer 2015 Color Trend: White and Bridal

Clockwise from top left: Freya Rapture; Mimi Holliday Parakeet (neon dots) and Pelican (star lace); Freya Deco Darling; Miss Mandalay Layla; Parfait Elissa; Panache Floris; Claudette Paloma; Curvy Kate Firecracker; Tutti Rouge Liliana; Fantasie Mae; Mimi Holliday Skylark; Fantasie Allegra

I had to ask Miss Underpinnings to check me on this, but no, I wasn’t imagining it: we saw way, way more bridal collections this go-around than we’d seen in years past. I am the first person to yell “not all white lingerie is bridal!!”, but I have to admit, these styles will be really helpful for those of you who want special lingerie for a wedding. Expect to see a lovely range of shapes and styles from The Intimate Britney Spears (pictures were embargoed, unfortunately). Freya’s super-popular Deco is the foundation for a brand-new bridal range from Freya, including a strapless bra and Freya’s first-ever babydoll. Parfait gets in on the action with a flirty little babydoll and a frankly gorgeous sheer lace longline bra that I (Sweets) am itching to get my hands on. Tutti Rouge’s Liliana is available in both a lovely Creme shade with a sweet neutral bow and in a bright white-on-white that feels really fresh and pretty, as well as the lovely Beatrice in ivory satin. We loved Mimi Holliday’s white collections, particularly Pelican with its beautiful white star-patterned lace and Skylark with its beautiful heart-patterned mesh. We even found that a white background made us like Panache’s Floris style for the first season ever.

Ballet-Inspired Design Elements

Spring/Summer 2015 Trend:  Ballet

As we mentioned above with the blush pink trend, we saw many, many brands that made reference to classic ballet design elements in their collections. Sunday Intimates’ whole SS15 collection looks like it walked straight out of a Degas painting, Angela Friedman’s collection is unabashedly girly with beautiful sheer white tutu/petticoats, and Dollhouse Bettie created a charmingly whimsical flower-petal style tutu.

Animal

Spring/Summer 2015 Trend:  Animal

clockwise from top left: Mimi Holliday Tiger Butterfly; Freya Minx; Miss Mandalay Leopard Ruffle; Sculptresse Chi Chi; Cleo Maya; Panache Black Odette; Gossard (style name unknown)

We are heavily divided on animal prints in general. Sweets abhors them in any shape or form (on HER, not on other people), while Cecily likes them as long as they are the colors nature intended (e.g., not purple). So we may not be the target audience for some of these, but nevertheless: they were there and they exist and here are pictures. Freya’s Minx has grown on us (well, at least on Sweets), on account of the periwinkle lace, keyhole at the center gore, and brand new cage-back construction (we heard glowing reviews from the full-bust women who’d tried it, although take note: the keyhole and cage back disappear in sizes over a G-cup). Miss Mandalay offers a sizzling take with the Leopard Ruffle bikini, Mimi puts their own spin on it with a sweet pastel Tiger Butterfly, Sculptresse brings out a cheetah/rose/black lace design for Chi Chi, Panache Black offers a wan animal print on their black molded Odette, and Cleo brings the color with a return of Maya. I was a little surprised to see that Panache had dropped leopard prints from the Jasmine line-up, and Parfait has no new animal print after last season– maybe we’re not the only ones with animal fatigue?

Full-Body Pieces

Spring/Summer 2015 Trend- Full-body pieces

Clockwise from top left: Fortnight Vega; Claudette Dessous Tee; Sunday Intimates Janine; Dollhouse Bettie Naima bodysuit and Lingara bodysuit; Gossard basque (style name unknown); Angela Friedman Vivian slip

Last season saw the rise of the full-bust bodysuit, and this season it’s here to stay, and then some. Freya’s Ooh La La bodysuit is part of the continuity range, and while Panache is retiring the Envy bodysuit (it’s likely to be a Fall/Winter style, just not Spring/Summer), we saw plenty of brands branching out to try new shapes. Both Parfait and Freya offer beautiful white babydolls as part of expanded bridal offerings, Sunday Intimates created a beautiful collection of incredible soft all-lace rompers, and more and more brands are offering lounge pieces like camisoles, chemises, robes, and even tees (like Claudette) to complement their lingerie offerings. Mimi Holliday will offer a huge assortment of slips, bodysuits, robes, and even a sheer black full-length catsuit!

Bond Girl Swimwear

Spring/Summer 2015 Trend:  Bond Girl Swimwear

clockwise from top left: Freya Bondi; Cleo Betty; Curvy Kate Ocean Drive; Miss Mandalay Bardot; Curvy Kate Ocean Drive; Miss Mandalay Zambia and Los Angeles Fluoro Yellow

FINALLY, full bust women are getting a break from the omnipresent pinup swimwear stylings (or the truly boring tropical florals) with swimwear that’s bolder, more athletic, and sexy without being cutesy. Curvy Kate’s best swim collection was the striking color-blocked Ocean Drive, Miss Mandalay enters the American market with the sexy Los Angeles in black, magenta, and fluoro yellow, Panache offers a great mix-and-match striped collection (Anya Stripe), and Freya’s aptly named “Bondi” is one of the best full-bust swim collections we’ve seen in ages. Don’t get us wrong, we still love cute: Cleo’s yellow polka dot bikini, navy collection with white heart polka dots, and dramatic floral longline bikini earned full marks from us, but we are SO pleased that full-bust swim designers offering designs that are a little more grown-up and sophisticated.

What do you think of the season overall?  See any styles that make it to your wishlist? I’ll touch on some of my favorite pieces in more detail in future posts, but overall it felt like a very pretty, albeit maybe a little safe, Spring season.

    First, I love your trend round-ups. 🙂 They are so helpful, and I think the collage of various brands really provides multiple options for people to consider who like the trend. Second, I have to disagree with purple as being a trend this season. Purple is a trend EVERY SEASON! I think it has to be one of the most popular colors in lingerie for the last three years or so. Crazy! Finally, Sculptresse killed me (killed, I say!) when they said Dixie wasn’t making it to production in Spring. The black/white plaid with pink accents was darling, and my Jasmine/Sculptresse customers were loving that way more than another animal print. Animal print, in general, is very hit-or-miss down here (mostly miss), so to see them offer a neutral but unusual print was fantastic. It’s the bra that got away for the shop!

      I KNOW RIGHT re: purple. YOU SHALL NOT ESCAPE THE PURPLE. And noooo I’m sad they cancelled Dixie! It was such a great look! Panache seems to have more cancellations than the other brands– is that my imagination? Are they just quick to pull the trigger on cancellations, or what?

        It’s not your imagination! I’m not sure why this is because Dixie was cancelled in the middle of the Curves shows. We were going to carry it in the shop, and my rep gave me the sad news it was totally cancelled. Trust me, about three weeks after I get my line sheets and catalogs, I get a follow-up email with size and style cancellations. Part of me wonders if they run into products issues, but maybe they gauge orders at Curves NYC and then decide. Eveden is notorious for not doing more than one cutting on a given fashion style if they cannot get every single piece identical, and I imagine Panache probably feels the same way. Who knows? Dixie was so darn cute, and everyone who saw it here liked it.

          Such a shame! It was such a nice alternative to the big lace/ditsy floral/animal print trifecta of omnipresent full bust designs. Who knows: maybe it’ll come back in a future season, the way Loire did?

    Can I just be completely frank?

    Aside from the yellow and bodysuits trends, nothing is really *new* to the market. I get that you’re just reporting on what’s there, but I don’t see anything worth getting worked up over. Maybe I’m a bit jaded.

    But seriously, ohwow, two of the most popular colors are….. purple and pink. Again. Like almost every season. Followed up by blues and blush-tones (see peach, ballet pink and baby pink from seasons past).

    Animal print, while it seems is much more popular than floral (finally), was never really out of style. Bravissimo, Freya, and Curvy Kate have all had incredibly popular animal prints in the past seasons, along with lots of other big name companies. While it may not have been ‘trendy’ per se, there’s been quite a few animal print sets on the market.

    Sport-y but cute swimwear is something I’m on the fence about. Apart from the obvious colorblocking (which I like!), it’s really nothing special. Pinup styles have been popular, but it’s not like the “bond girl” look isn’t pretty much every single other bikini on the market that *isn’t* pin up styled.

    Babydolls were really popular – I can understand how it was easy to introduce them to the full-bust market as a lingerie option other than bra/knicker sets. Women have bee clamoring for teddies and one-piece suits and the like for long enough, I’m not surprised to start seeing them.

    They’re playing it safe – which happens every single season. We see maybe one trend that’s really unique, and then everything else is just to fill it out.

    I’m having a hard time getting excited about the upcoming season this year.

      I totally hear you! I think “trend” in the lingerie industry (especially the full-bust lingerie industry) tends to be a little different from trends in the fashion industry at large– we are, as you point out, reporting on what we saw, not necessarily on what was groundbreaking. And yeah, to someone super familiar with the industry, as it sounds like you are, it was a safe season. A pretty season, but a safe season. I try to cover as many color/design groupings as possible (even if they’re boring like the stupid omnipresent purple or the Barbie pink) because there are still so many people who AREN’T really familiar with the industry and who don’t have any idea what kind of variety is available in a wide size range.

      I still talk to people every day, including friends who read my blog, who are convinced the only lingerie available in their size is beige and boring. These are people who wear sizes like 32F or 36E, sizes which have an increasingly fantastic range of options available to them. So I don’t see the harm in covering everything I saw, even if it’s not mind-blowing. I’m sorry nothing’s catching your eye for next season– what would you have liked to have seen?

    God, do I love me some Claudette, but it sure is slim pickings on the internet trying to get a hold of these newer lines. Some of the bigger stockists I’ve had success with in the past, like Fig Leaves and Bare Necessities, don’t even carry the brand anymore! (Egads!) I’ve been trying to get my hands on the Paloma – which looks like a redesign of my beloved Paramour (RIP) – since it debuted in their lookbook last season, but thus far it’s nowhere to be found :/

      It is indeed a redesign of paramour (and I tried it on at Curve and loved it and want one of my own), but as far as I know some A/W14 styles still haven’t shipped yet. I bet it’ll show up towards the end of the month or in October, fingers crossed. I’ve heard that HerRoom has been stocking a ton of Claudette– maybe keep an eye out for it there?

    I say this every trend report but, “yay, purple!” Sorry for those of you who are tired of it, but it’s my favorite color, so I am always happy to have more choices. Purple just makes me happy.

    That Sculptresse Liberty might be my first venture into that brand. That just looks super comfy.

    That being said, my Elle robe from KMD just arrived today, so excuse me while I lounge in my purple.

    Is there anywhere online a girl can get the Panache Black line? I have been searching for it since I saw that you said there is a K cup in Eclipse, but I live in the boonies of Indiana, and I’m desperate for new Panache bras in a 34K. I’m going to order the new Ricamo on figleaves because i can’t wait any longer, and I’m afraid it’s not a US color! why do they do this? it’s almost November, I’ve been waiting for anything not animal print in Jasmine!
    thanks,

      Hi Cassie,
      Thanks for stopping by! The reason Panache Black isn’t available yet is because it won’t launch until Spring/Summer 2014 (Masquerade is wrapping up its final season now, and then it will become Panache Black). All of the styles in this post will start to ship to stores towards the end of December 2014, and they’ll continue to ship a few at a time until April or May. So don’t worry, you haven’t missed them– they’re on their way! If you like Jasmine, have you tried Envy? The Cassis color for this season is gorgeous!
