Emilio Cavallini Teams with Hue for Intimates Collection
Posted Monday August 6, 2012 1:55 PM GMT
Putting their heads together for some fabulous new duds, Emilio Cavallini and Hue have just announced their new line under the Emilio Cavallini for Hue moniker.
The much-anticipated range will include legwear and coordinating pieces as well as seamless Santoni-knit tops and bottoms to make ladies feel cute and comfortable.
We’ve done guest-designer programs before with fashion names such as Tibi, Trina Turk and Milly, but this is different, because it goes beyond legwear and it’s a totally different category — it’s hosiery for the body,” said EVP/GM of Hue Julia Townsend.
“It’s only the second day of the spring market week, but the retailers we previewed were excited about the newness of this concept and there is an openness to it….It feels and looks like something special, a collection you would find in a European boutique.”
President of Design Catrinel Popa also noted that the line’s color palette will add to the fun. “We wanted to do different pieces that can be layered, worn color-on-color or worn with another shade to pop up the color statement. The pieces can also be worn as a foundation for other garments….The acid brights are very important with color peeking through the open-work that gives a 3-D effect.”
