Sport and Wellness Trends FW23-24 by Adrian Verin – CARLIN CREATIVE TREND BUREAU


The practice of Yoga is more popular than ever and is evolving toward a less sculpted and more romantic approach, in response to the wellness movement, which was highlighted during the lockdowns we’ve all experienced.

Marie Bouhier_Billi London

Educated with a bachelor’s degree from Business and Management school HEC Montreal in Canada, Marie Bouhier then studied a master’s degree at the London College of Fashion, where she learned how to manage innovative fashion projects and use the Design Thinking approach to bring solutions linked to sustainability issues. 

Waste was a topic she always wanted to tackle, so she wrote her master thesis about biodegradable materials being a comparative advantage for fashion brands. 

During that time, she also took part in a project by The Digital Anthropology Lab which is London College of Fashion’s research center dedicated to crafting better human experiences with technology, for their client Klarna. 

After two roles as a Strategic Planner and Creative Strategist in advertising agency BBDO in Chile and brand experience agency XYZ in London, she went client side and joined the brand L’Artisan Parfumeur as the Global Marketing Content Executive where she is the brand guardian, developing strategic content plans to support the brand’s portfolio and new product launches.

After having experienced both sides – agency and brand, she felt her research during her Master thesis about biodegradability should not be left aside and could contribute to improving the fashion industry’s impacts on the planet. When she met Sophie, launching Billi London became a no brainer and the entrepreneurial journey to make an impact in the fashion industry she always dreamed of began.


Scandale Eco-Lingerie - Edouard Roche

Edouard Roche has been a Brand & Business reinvention expert for more than 25 years.

After 17 years in the L’Oreal Group, where he held Global General Management positions at Lancôme, Helena Rubinstein, L’Oreal, Shu Uemura, Redken & Pureology, living in the UK, Mexico, Japan and in the US. He then moved to Ralph Lauren Fashion as President for Japan then joined Burberry HQ and a member of CEO Angela Ahrendts’s Management Committee, and SVP in charge of Fashion Buying & Digital Business.

He moved to Hop Lun Group, a global leader in the lingerie sector, where he turned around Dorina, a German mass market lingerie brand created by Triumph in 1968 that he repositioned as a hot European online brand.

He then took on the challenge to revive an iconic French lingerie brand created in 1932, SCANDALE, into SCANDALE ÉCO-LINGERIE, a sleek, audacious, and committed brand with indisputable social and environmental responsibilities and credentials.

SCANDALE ÉCO-LINGERIE’s value proposition pushes the boundaries of circularity, decarbonation, proximity sourcing & ethics to new territory.

Made with 100% éco-fabrics, from either recycled or organic yarns, ethically produced and carbon-neutral along its entire value chain, SCANDALE ÉCO-LINGERIE is re-inventing a new norm, where fashion & sincere sustainability can live together, where French sensuality can be developed with people & planet in mind

SCANDALE ÉCO-LINGERIE is VEGAN PETA-approved, and part of the B CORP movement (best in class companies balancing purpose and profit), soon to be fully a certified B Corporation, being part of a global movement.

Recently re-launched, SCANDALE ÉCO-LINGERIE is on a promising trajectory in major European department stores and digital platforms like Galeries Lafayette, proving how the concept is resonating with increasingly eco-sensitive consumers.


“Our biggest challenge is to stop plundering or polluting the planet, opting for existing (and not virgin) materials (pre-consumer & post-consumer wastes), renewable energies wherever possible, and a supply chain close to the development and design teams.

This requires a rigorous approach to supply chain analysis to limit the impact at each stage. Having opted for a local sourcing, our designers are about 100 km away from 2 production Ateliers and from our eco-responsible packaging suppliers.

We compensate all our carbon emissions in partnership with Climate Partner and invest in renewable energy programs contributing to UN sustainable goals. Vegan approved, we are a B-Corp ‘en creation’ on our way to become one of the Best in Class companies balancing Planet & Profit.”

Reconsumption and the challenge of deconsumption: new challenges for CSR by Dominique Demoinet


It’s no longer a question of knowing if we should consume less, or better, nor of knowing if we should consume differently, and why. One thing is for sure: we should all consume less, better, and differently, in terms of fashion, even more so than for other items.
The question that needs an answer is, “How?”. How do we fulfill this now clear desire from the consumer who is ready to radically change their purchasing behavior and shift how they shop?

Though they may be ready to behave responsibly and sustainably, consumers expect much more from companies and expect them to do much better. And they’re saying so: 83% of them think that a firm should only make a profit if they are having a positive impact on society. Whether they’re eco-invested or eco-distant, eco-modernist or eco-skeptical, utopians or realists, consumers have well and truly changed their opinions on companies. It’s now up to these firms to make consumers want to shop again, through a powerful and convincing commitment and by relying on the product, which once made them dream, but now conveys certain values.

Signed during the height of the health crisis, the Fashion Pact defined crucial goals for the fashion and textile industry. It represents a big step forward. But the crisis we’re experiencing calls for much more. It must be an accelerator for change. One company’s reason for existing will not be enough to change things. If all firms decide to change their model and strategy, then, perhaps, we might be able to pass along the keys to a better world to the Alpha and Beta generations.

NO(W) Gender x No Beauty by Madame Ilma and Ana-Li


Should we still be using a gendered strategy when society offers new possibilities?

Though historically, pink was a color that expressed virility, what does it mean now that Millennials have made it their own?

We’ll discuss the gender issue from a sociological and strategic perspective by presenting disruptive initiatives such as NO BEAUTY, founded by Ana-Li Mraovitch, a unisex, inclusive, vegan brand of care products.

Ana-Li Mraovitch is the founder of NO BEAUTY, a range of unisex, inclusive, vegan care products.

After working for many years as a photo stylist in Paris and New York, she decided to leave this field behind to establish NO BEAUTY.

The stereotype of gendered products and the lack of diversity in cosmetics led Ana-Li and her associate Linda to create a range of conscious and healthy products that everyone can use.


A/W 2023-24 Lingerie Trends: the place of sexy products within a sea of comfort confort by Virginie Corbasson – CARLIN CREATIVE TREND BUREAU


Lockdowns and the shift to telecommuting have changed consumers’ lifestyles and amplified their appetite for everyday products that are comforting and make life easier.

The lingerie market thus now finds itself polarized around matters of comfort and the end of all forms of stereotypes, discrimination, and taboos, allowing a plethora of ultra-minimalist innerwear to emerge.

What is the new place of sexiness in a market that has been traditionally guided by this aesthetic? And what new directions are appearing to bring new energy to the “comfort” market?

At this talk, the Carlin agency will present the new rules of sexy, along with directions to renew “comfort” lingerie, looking ahead to A/W 2023-24.

When she returned, she joined the Carlin Group as Sales Manager, then headed up the France and International Sales division.

Giving women and the planet some room to breathe!

As a health professional, she’s committed to public health issues, particularly those related to the composition and use of menstrual products.

In collaboration with experts, she developed a collection of menstrual lingerie and swimwear that aligns with the values of women and girls today. Practical, sustainable and comfortable with zero risk of toxic shock syndrome and zero waste. There’s no need to compromise!
