Designer Spotlight - Ruban Noir
Posted on 24 July 2018
2018 began with the annual trip to Paris in January, to visit the must see trade show for lingerie aficionado's Salon International de la Lingerie. It is the kick start to the year that the lingerie industry look forward to, where the great and the good and the brand new descend on the 'city of love' to display their ware's to buyers and retailers from all over the world. It's definitely one of our favourite trade shows, because not only do we see the latest trends in lingerie, loungewear and swimwear but we also get to see the latest trends in manufacturing and fabric designs. It is the mecca for insight into future trends & technology in fabric design and manufacturing. This was particularly exciting for me as Founder and Creative Director, as it would be the first time that I'd be visiting both sections of the show, as we venture into the production of our own collection.
This year Salon International de Lingerie had an exciting innovative section for new brands called 'Exposed', and it was this area that held particular interest as we like to show case new and up coming brands at Beautifully Undressed. It was here on the last day of the show, that we stepped into the world of Ruban Noir and were entranced.
Born from an association between arty and classy, street style and haute couture, Ruban Noir can best be described as contemporary lingerie redefined. The collection is the brainchild of Stephanie Weinich who says her designs are a 'crazy world of paradoxes'.
She designs her pieces using a blend of high tech fabrics, such as stretch polyamide, polyester, jersey, satin and elastane, producing shapes by laser and ultrasonic cutting, which result in a precision of shapes, whilst thermoforming and thermo-collage method deliver unequalled finesse. All these methods give the lingerie a 'raw' touch, but at the same time, creating haute couture lingerie that contrasts classy erotica with technical perfection.
Designed and made in Paris, Ruban Noir creations are precious and subtle jewels, lingerie for unique moments, meant to be seen under a T-shirt or a cashmere sweater, revealing a shoulder. Comprising of 4 sets titled rather uniquely - Je Suit Amoureuse, Discussion Vertical, Accident Industriel and Dejeuner Horizontal, this is lingerie for a sensual, daring and beautiful woman, this is lingerie that heightens expectations and imposes its radical style in the world of luxury and we're delighted to have this stunning collection available at Beautifully Undressed.
