FRANCE: Leather, Lycra Laminate Uplifts Lingerie Line
"The luxury and sensuality of leather allied to the comfort of a modern stretch fabric," is the way Daniel Perret, president of Millesia, describes his company's latest lingerie collection.
The garments actually employ leather supplied by the Cuirs du Futur group. However, it is leather that has been permanently fused to a Lycra content substrate by what Perret describes as a "ground-breaking adaptation of conventional lamination processes.
"As a result garments created from this 'fabric' conform naturally to the body shape of the wearer and have both excellent stretch and recovery properties. And we are confident that they will retain their shape throughout the lifetime of the garment," he continues.
Perret believes that the new range will sell strongly into each of the 70 nations with which Millesia currently does export business.
He tips as potential best-sellers an uplift bra in washable leather with Lycra which has been overprinted to resemble stone-washed denim and a deep tone dyed, perforated leather with Lycra design which "feels like leather but looks like lace."
