Lingerie trends for 2024 and beyond

In the realm of luxury lingerie, each year brings forth a new wave of trends, blending fresh concepts with timeless classics that never go out of style. As we begin 2024, Angela Friedman's captivating collections remain on-trend as always, including the latest innovations while upholding the brand's signature sophistication. Let's embark on a journey through the hottest trends in luxury lingerie for 2024, exploring colors, design elements, fabrics, and sustainable practices that define the current landscape of opulent undergarments:

Color Trends

This year, the color palette dominating luxury lingerie collections can be broken down into a few contained groupings: Earth tones, jewel tones (plus brights!), and neutrals and pastels. While classic hues like black, white, and shades of nude persist as perennial favorites, 2024 introduces an infusion of earthy tones and rich bold hues, evoking a sense of decadence and flirty fun.

  • Earth tones: From olive green to terracotta and deep brown, earthy hues are back on trend this year, and the depth of these colors simply exude understated luxury and sophistication.
  • Jewel tones: Emerald green, indigo blue, deep plum, and bold magenta take center stage, offering a deep and bright aesthetic that commands attention. The brighter cousins of jewel tones, brights, are also on trend this year, including hot pink, bright periwinkle, and even chartreuse green.
  • Pastels and neutrals: Soft pastels and neutral shades, including blush pink, champagne, and soft grey, continue to captivate us with their subtle charm. Versatile and understated, these colors seamlessly blend into any wardrobe, and disappear beautifully under clothing – a very important feature with undergarments!

Design Elements

In the realm of design, 2024 embraces both boldness and delicacy, as modernity intertwines with vintage-inspired motifs to create a tapestry of new concepts blending with classics.

  • Intricate embroidery: A hallmark of luxury lingerie this year, intricate embroidery adorns garments with exquisite detail. We’re not seeing many overly simplistic designs this year – it’s all about big, bold patterns that are high contrast and feature detailed layers of built up threads. Whether it's a traditional floral motif or a more abstract design, you’ll find embroidered lingerie sets in every shop this year.
  • Lace and sheer fabrics: Lace continues to reign supreme, revered for its timeless allure and feminine feel. Paired with sheer fabrics such as chiffon or mesh, lace takes on a contemporary edge for 2024, offering a tantalizing glimpse of skin while maintaining an air of refinement. Lately we’re seeing more geometric lace designs for a modern update on the classics.
  • Vintage-inspired silhouettes: Drawing inspiration from bygone eras, vintage-inspired designs have made a triumphant return. From high-waisted briefs to structured corsets, these retro-chic designs celebrate the silhouettes of the Victorian era and Old Hollywood starlets. For some inspiration on how to tap into this nostalgia, read our article on How to Channel Old Hollywood Glamour!

Innovative Fabrics and Textures

Innovation takes center stage as luxury lingerie brands explore new horizons in fabric selection, prioritizing both sustainability and sensory indulgence. We’ve seen these trends increasing every year lately, so you can expect to see much more of these in the coming seasons!

  • Eco-friendly textiles: As sustainability gains prominence in every market, luxury lingerie brands (including Angela Friedman!) embrace eco-friendly materials such as 100% pure silk, organic cotton, bamboo, and recycled lace. These materials not only minimize environmental impact but also offer unparalleled comfort and quality, embodying a commitment to conscious luxury.
  • Velvet and satin: Luxuriously tactile and sumptuously soft, velvet and satin emerge as key players in 2024's lingerie landscape. These opulent fabrics add a touch of glamour to intimate apparel, enveloping the wearer in a cocoon of sensual indulgence and timeless elegance.
  • Mesh and tulle: Lightweight and ethereal, mesh and tulle lend a sense of whimsy and romance to luxury lingerie collections. Paired with delicate lace and intricate embroidery, these sheer fabrics create a mesmerizing interplay of texture and transparency, captivating the senses with their understated allure.

Sustainability in Luxury Lingerie

In an era defined by environmental consciousness, luxury lingerie brands are embracing sustainability as a core priority, focusing on ethical production practices and eco-friendly materials. Angela Friedman has been prioritizing local production and sustainable manufacturing since launching in 2012, so we’re thrilled to see some of the bigger players finally catching up to this “trend” that really should be standard by now.

  • Sustainable materials: Angela Friedman leads the charge in sustainability, utilizing primarily natural fibers (silk!) and even recycling textile off-cuts to limit waste to nearly 0. Customers have long asked for more eco-friendly designs without sacrificing on style, so in 2024 you can expect to see more lingerie companies following suit.
  • Ethical production: Transparency and accountability are paramount in ethical production, ensuring fair wages, safe working conditions, and respectful treatment of artisans throughout the supply chain. Angela Friedman's dedication to ethical production practices ensures that every garment is crafted with integrity in a safe and environmentally-friendly office and workshop, reflecting a commitment to social responsibility.

  • Slow fashion: Embracing the principles of slow fashion, luxury lingerie brands encourage consumers to adopt a mindful approach to consumption, prioritizing quality over quantity and investing in pieces that stand the test of time. By fostering a culture of conscious consumerism, Angela Friedman and other leading brands are paving the way for a more sustainable and equitable future in fashion.
