Last week, I posted that I'd be visiting Panache and Eveden headquarters in New York City. Almost all of my meetings begin with the greatest question: what feedback have you received from your readers? So, to stay up to speed on what y'all are into, I called for questions, comments, and requests on my Facebook page and Twitter account. Here's what you guys had to say for Panache and their answers:
"Please make Jasmine in BASIC colors!"
Panache is delighted with the Jasmine and excited about the reaction from bloggers, customers, and boutique owners. Since bestsellers don't come around that often, I'd bet you $1,000,000 that they're already cooking up more styles for this range. In the meantime, the new Dahlia is based on the Jasmine, arrives in mid August and will be available in black and beige.
Panache that the Jasmine is the best bra ever and to never ever stop
making it. Also, Cleo styles up to a K cup could help some ladies out."
Currently, it feels as if Cleo's focused on remodeling it's old standards and offering basic versions of their popular fashion. The Neve plunge is their Jude 2.0, the Marcie's grown tremendously, and the Maddie has basic components now too. But as far as my contact knows, there aren't any K cup Cleos on the way. I think Superbra is trying to turn their Ks into sexier, lighter styles. One of the Tango Accenti's main selling points was it's sheer upper panel and seductive vibe.
"Cleo Marcie in black please, please!!! And some unusual lingerie colors for the Cleo range such as green, yellow or brown!"
I'm sooooo with you on this one. The Neon Orange Lucy and the grey Lori were far and away my favorites from Cleo for Autumn/Winter 2013 and they're also the least conventional bras in the lineup. GOOD NEWS: Word on the street says there might be a Marcie in yellow...Don't quote me on this because it might get cut before the next Curve, but wouldn't that be cool!?
as a basic black bra from Cleo, and more 28s from Superbra. Their new
styles are lovely, but they're releasing so few in 28s."
Do you know who brands love to listen to? Buyers at Curve. Do you know who they also love to hear from? Us. If both groups say the same thing, things get done. Apparently, we speak as one because everyone has asked for a black Marcie. Like the Jasmine for Panache, the Marcie has been a solid hit for Cleo and since they bestowed their first babydoll on the range, I'd say they've noticed. It's also one of those bras that you can't screw up. Just as you can't make the Princess ugly, the Marcie will look adorable in almost every colorway. I'd be shocked if they didn't put this out in continuity colors soon.
