Report Code : A01420

quote New measurement and design techniques combined with production methods and innovative materials transform the quality, range, and applications of intimate wear. For instance, German lingerie designs show a new trend toward muted colors such as earthy tones, navy blue, and pastel colors. Lingerie designers are coming up with many new designs that are embroidered and have two-tone color patterns and most of them are asymmetrical. Animal prints and organic shapes combined with geometrical patterns are also in fashion. Luxurious, elegant, desirable, and evocative vintage lingerie is also gaining popularity in both the fashion markets and modern intimate apparel. quote
