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.

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.

Convinced of the power of Louise Bourgeois’ statement that “Art is a guarantee of sanity”, Madame Ilma crafts strategies for creative and innovative brands. Ines Renaudin is also an exhibition curator and design-history and marketing instructor.

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.
