The 'Interfiliere Connect' lingerie industry sourcing trade show is in full swing and the Concepts Paris AW22/23 trend book has arrived and it's truly inspirational!

As we eagerly peel back the pages, we consider and reflect upon the authentic and fruitful conversations we have had this passed year and bask in the warm sensation of our community and what we can create together.

We are deeply honoured to have been asked by Jos Berry and Concepts Paris to be the guest designer for this season as we collectively imagine and bring forward new ideas for creating Intimate Apparel in a post Covid landscape.

In response to the Concepts Paris theme of 'Workwear', we presented the important relationship between how we feel and what we choose to wear. We propose that the pandemic era has increased awareness of our range of human emotions and what we need to balance them. We recognise the need for our daily intimate garments to be multi functional, identifying both physical and emotional needs and offering supportive solutions. We show how each material, pattern and construction choice can be considered with explicit intention in order to add up to a full and meaningful experience for the wearer, ensuring garments will be loved and will last.

It is our belief at Bold Intimates that supporting the human experience and our full range of emotions is integral to sustainable health for individuals, communities and our impact on the planet and our purpose is to achieve this through conscious and precise intimate product builds.

We hope you all enjoy the book as much as we do and have a wonderful sourcing and networking season.
