(Filed Under wholesale Hosiery News). Erica Young, the hosiery designer behind the Erica M. hosiery brand, recently introduced a Spring/Summer 2015 group that further expands her collection. The new styles are included in a new look book.
For 2015 the designer is offering her first catsuit, “The Naomi,” which combines a dense background “basket weave lace pattern” which covers the garment from neck to ankle. On top of that pattern are thicker bands and lines. “Each line is strategically placed to enhance a woman’s figure and corresponds with the detailing of a motocross uniform” and are “engineered, to create an alluring silhouette.” Another catsuit photographed recently in BODY featured the pattern of angel wings on the back.
Also in the newest grouping is “The Azza” panty hose, which includes silhouettes of horses and displays “a Spanish influence in (the) garter-belt detailing and lattice patterning. It is available in two color ways, black/black and nude/black, both of which are striking and graphic to the eye and soft on the body,” according to a description in the look book.
Another new hosiery style is Donna, which features the silhouette of a girl sitting astride a fence. “Extremely soft to the touch, the Donna is a bold Erica M. basic. With sportish faux garters and heel details, this pair will make you feel exceptionally coquettish,” explains the look book.
Erica M. hosiery has sold to a wide range of specialty stores and the designer told BODY “that Nordstrom.com will carry a selection of my hosiery styles along with all of my bodysuit styles this winter.”
Shelly Domenech, owner of I C London, the lingerie retailer in Laguna Beach, CA, is a big fan. “After 35 years in the retail lingerie/body wear business it is nice to see someone with a truly fresh idea and a strong new point of view,” she wrote BODY in an email message. “Erica M.’s eye-catching photos, packaging and presentation make it a proud addition to my product mix. The bodysuits are especially good for us as they are an on-trend crossover item that is sexy yet wearable (i.e. just novel enough to catch the customer’s interest and also offer good value). Many customers need only to see the promo/packaging photo of the Hanako bodysuit to say ‘I’ll take it.’ We already have customers curious about what Erica will think of next and eager to see SS15 allover catsuit.”
Domenech added, “As the only full-range lingerie shop in our small town we offer an edited selection of basics but also like to keep things interesting by bringing in slightly more unusual items now and then. Erica M. is a perfect fit for us – soft, stretchy, sexy, sporty, innerwear/outerwear.”
Eric Young told BODY she is “confirmed to show at Curve and Salon International De La Lingerie in the beginning of next year,” and promised “there are some exciting things in the pipeline!”
