This past week in New York has been incredibly busy. I’ve seen so many brands and have so much information to bring you about what is to come in the lingerie industry in 2011. Our friends from Lelo, Hanky Panky, Between the Sheets, and ARI DEIN were generous (and daring) enough to let us film our recent conversations with them about their brands, trends, and more!
From Lelo, we interviewed the lovely Eliane Said who showed us the absolutely elegant Sussurra collection recently launched by the brand best known for their pleasure objects. You’ll be hearing more on TLP about this collection, but pay special attention to the kimono (my fave!). Just glorious!
Hanky Panky lent us their Glam Guru, JD Breen, who showed us some best sellers and talked trends. Did you know that Hanky Panky is more than just their signature thong?! And speaking of the thong…stay tuned to the end of the video for a little tidbit!
Our other two interviews featured two of New York’s premier young designers – Layla of Between the Sheets and Ari of ARI DEIN. Get a glimpse at their upcoming brands, discover their inspiration, and learn how they make it all work (yes, Tim Gunn would be proud!). Also, learn a bit more about each of them as individuals. Are they loyal to the iPhone or Blackberry? What superhero powers do they secretly desire? Where do they see their brands in 5 years?
We love these ladies and know you will too!
The video interviews are a new territory for TLP, so let us know what you think! We hope you enjoy this peek into the world behind the brands. Stay tuned to TLP for more on what’s to come – new finds, trends, photos, and more! Let us know what you think on Facebook and Twitter and keep the conversation going. Maybe one of your questions will be asked of the next featured industry insider!
