CAMBRIDGE, Ontario — Coquette International has released its 2013 Main Collection in anticipation of the New Year.

The company's newest collection shows off the designers’ love of color blocking and contrasting elements, the company said. Retailers can expect to see stylized images with lilac, navy and nude tones. Several designs throughout the book feature crocheted aspects, having been inspired by outerwear trends, with raised motifs offering texture and depth to the line. With the new design direction, the collection has a wider range of styles, and an expanded plus section due to consumer demand,” the company said.

“In this collection we wanted showcase pieces geared toward color,” senior designer Elaine Carson said. “There is an increased amount of stretch lace prints and patterns which we have paired with solid tones to bring out textures, creating definition to those pieces. This is a fun and vibrant collection that we expect will pop in-stores and do well for our retailers.”

For 2013, the newly designed molded cups, that continue in popularity, can be seen throughout on babydolls and bustiers, Coquette says. The traditional corsetry with flexible boning and structuring is back, and the number of babydolls and their patterns have been enhanced. Within the line, there is a greater variety with differing lengths between the styles.

Additionally, retailers will find animal prints have returned with a modern twist. The pieces have been made with leopard print mesh in all black without the two-toned color pieces that have been seen in the past. Finally, the main collection is introducing sequins, which were previously only seen in the Holiday line.

“Our 2013 book is upscale with a boutique appeal,” said Marcus Horea, vice president of sales and marketing. “Our team has put together a look that speaks to the Coquette brand and continues to move ahead in their designs. We are very excited to reveal our newest catalog!”

The line is scheduled to hit shelves by early February.
