Hubby Knows Fashion

Last fall, I wrote a blog on titled,  Loung-erie (oh no, I just looked at the date and I wrote it TWO YEARS AGO. Time is passing way too quickly). In the post, I described how my genius hubby helped me define my beloved PINK line at Victoria’s Secret.  He called it loung-erie and I thought it was perfect.

Fast forward to today. I’m researching fashion trends for an assignment for Yahoo!, and what do I come across? THIS:

Interfiliere, a fashion industry body dedicated to lingerie and beachwear correctly peg Spring 2011’s fashion trends as an evolution of several recent fashion trends; key amongst them is the continued reinterpretation of classic styles along all heavily influenced by the ‘lingerie as outerwear’ trend that has been touting for some time now.

Key look: loungerie

For the latter, they’ve coined a new term: loungerie. With the elements of lingerie, be it girly or overtly sexual, so prominent in street fashion, Interfiliere see Spring 2011’s key street wear trends as a mixture between lingerie, swimwear and streetwear (which they group as loungewear), and lingerie. Hence the portmanteau.

In their own words:

The new Loungerie takes a leaf out of, and gets the best of, lingerie for an alternative, parallel wardrobe; [one that is] light, intimate, and impossible to “classify.”

Hmm. Is hubby a fashion genius or what?

  1. That’s awesome. I love the pink line & I especially love that they offer cute feminine shirts for cheering on major sports.

    Yahoo! That’s awesome that you get to do work for them.
