For this second edition of "Lingerie, Mon Amour" Show, "Lingerie Rocks", the fourteen most prestigious French Lingerie brands decided to come together to present an exceptional fashion Show which confirms their international reputation for know-how and creativity. Authentic French icons, our brands have always been on the cutting edge of fashion promoting the eternal elegance of the French woman. Thank you: ANTIGEL, ANTINÉA, AUBADE, CHANTELLE, EMPREINTE, EPRISE, ÉPURE, IMPLICITE, LISE CHARMEL, LOU, LOUISA BRACQ, MAISON LEJABY, PASSIONATA and SIMONE PÉRÈLE. We have also invited three French Lingerie designers to join us in presenting their creations: BADINES LINGERIE, HENRIETTE H and JOLIES MÔMES. Orchestrated by the Artistic Director, Frédéric Fontan, this new edition of the French Lingerie Show presents a Parisian with a resolutely Rock aesthetic. In a tribute to the personalities and energies that represent Paris and Rock we find: Patti Smith, a passionate Parisian of the heart, Vanessa Paradis with her music-festival vibe, Chris(tine) with or without the Queens or David Bowie, who virtually invented "masculine/feminine role-play", Santa of Hyphen Hyphen or a Parisian who wears Haute Couture all of whom give the capital of fashion a Rock style that is inimitable.
4 ROCK SCENES:
1. ROCK LIKE A BOY White shirt and black lingerie! It is the Tomboy style inspired by a woman who adopts pieces from her man’s wardrobe. It is a look that changed the codes of femininity in the 1960s; today these elements are an essential part of every woman’s wardrobe. The dancers and models evolve between voluptuous movements and intense energy. The force of the group does not suppress that of the individual; each woman in her black lingerie flaunts her power, she is mysterious and captivating. Direction and choreography: Frédéric Fontan. Assistants: Loïc Dubois and Janique Lefebvre. Music : Hyphen Hyphen - Take my Hand and Mama Sorry.
2. WE LOVE GREEN The 1970s influence is palpable. Welcome to the music festival mood for a brightly colored and joyous rock look. Booted, with long scarves in their hair and piles of jewelry for a nod at Vanessa Paradis in her neo-flower-power period. The lingerie uses printed fabrics, with floral embroidery or graphic lace. Direction: Frédéric Fontan. Choreography: Kevin Vivès. Music : Hyphen Hyphen - Lonely Babe and Be high with me.
3. GIRLS DON’T CRY ! The guitar music resonates and the stilettos pound the runway. The leather perfecto jackets reveal dynamic lingerie in intense colors: shocking pink, royal blue, ruby red… This bewitching choreography explores notions of contrast using Chinese shadows. A salute to the vibrant new technicolor palette of French Lingerie. Direction and Choreography: Frédéric Fontan. Assistant: Loïc Dubois. Music : Hyphen Hyphen - Last Call and Like Boys.
4. GLAMROCK ATTITUDE The final piece, impertinent, audacious and "glamrock" offers a new look at white lingerie. Often considered demure and classic, these dancers and models overcome outmoded ideas and go for a total look “White and Gold”. They dare leather lamé to proclaim their liberty: liberty to be who they want, to be strong or vulnerable, to be femme fatale or shyly reserved, the freedom to be beautiful, the freedom to dream… Lingerie has always been a reflection of its era, and tonight we see once again, this is the case! Direction and choreography: Frédéric Fontan. Assistant: Janique Lefebvre. Music : Hyphen Hyphen - Just need your love.
