The Interfilière trade fair was held in Paris from 3 to 6 September. The Riviera, Exposed and Interfilière Paris shows presented the main trends in lingerie, sportswear and swimwear for the SS23 season. From colors and prints to embellishments and fabrics, FashionUnited lists the top five lingerie trends for the Spring-Summer 2023 season. The main conclusion? A need for well-being and optimism, whether it be conscious choices, comfortable garments or colorful hues.
Looking for comfort
Despite a return to formal options after the pandemic, comfort still appears to be a key trend. Think pieces that are practical and easy to wear, yet look elegant and smart – for example, stretch knits, velvet fabrics, polar fleece for loungewear and feel-good materials that are soft and flexible. New work-from-home habits and daily yoga, Pilates and meditation routines have contributed to this growing trend that combines femininity with well-being.
Need for colors and bold prints
We are already seeing bright colors in fashion in the spring and summer of 2022, but the next season will also bring vibrant hues to lingerie and swimwear. Embroideries are updated with unexpected color palettes and patterns – we see geometric shapes, neon brights, oversized flowers and bold color combinations that lift the spirits. Many striped and colored fabrics are introduced, along with hand-drawn details and street art prints. Whether it concerns lounge sets, pajamas or lingerie, we see a tendency towards positivity, enthusiasm and playfulness.
A sense of nostalgia
Vintage fabrics and retro prints get an update for SS23: we’re looking at more lightweight and softer versions of traditional fabrics like crochet lace. Classic vintage styles are being re-imagined to appeal to consumers who need time-tested classics that still have a modern significance. When it comes to prints and patterns, gingham and polkadots lead the way, followed by small florals and combinations in pastels. Dark tones and deep reds also add to this vintage enthusiasm, as does lace that provides seductive drama.
A sustainable approach
In the spring and summer of 2023, we will see more and more environmentally friendly and sustainable alternatives in lingerie, swimwear and lounge pants. While it comes with challenges – creating an adaptable and versatile wardrobe that is ethically responsible – a focus on comfort and quality will help keep the trend going. Eco-certified fabrics and recycled materials are used, traceability is becoming ubiquitous and water-saving methods are necessary. As far as design goes, the trend translates into essential lightweight knits, cotton lace and multifunctional pieces that stand the test of time. The goal is to avoid waste, so building a basic lingerie and loungewear wardrobe that is foolproof and resistant to seasonal trends is key. This was emphasized by Interfilière’s ‘Indonesian Project’, which presented a circular collection of prototypes made by Indonesian partners. A mix of style and fashionable fabrics, yes, but always with a conscious look.
Love for textures
For the spring-summer of 2023, the focus is also on fabrics. Whether it’s metallic materials that add shine – think lurex and laminated jacquards – or cutouts and 3D effects, textures are becoming an integral part of the trends we look at. Knits are embellished to shine, patterns are printed outside the seams, laces come in two-tone palettes and embroidered, crochet effects are popular. This love for texture was on display at exhibitor Maglificio Ripa, who presented a new iridescent fiber that reflects the light and nuances in the yarns for a striking effect. Waffled, pleated, wrinkled or laser-cut fabrics come in new variants that attract attention.
