Naked Launches “Invisible Edge” Signature Line-Free Intimates Collection
Innovative Bras and Panties Feature Patented SensElast™ Velvet Lamination on Inside of High-Quality Italian Euro Jersey Fabric
NEW YORK, May 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Naked Brand Group Inc. (NASDAQ:NAKD) ("Naked"), an innovative inner fashion and lifestyle brand, announced the launch of its Signature Line-Free intimates collection of “invisible edge” bras and panties for women featuring SensElast™ technology which provides velvet lamination inside high-quality Italian Euro Jersey fabric for enhanced comfort and performance.
“Naked is committed to innovation and we are proud to introduce what we believe is the most technically advanced collection of women’s intimates on the market,” said Carole Hochman, CEO and Chief Creative Officer of Naked. “Line-Free, ‘seamless’ underwear is now a mainstay for many women but great fit and performance are often lacking in these products, particularly in the bra category. Our Signature Line-Free intimates collection elevates this entire product category with sexy, sophisticated bras and panties made from high-quality Euro Jersey fabric incorporating the advanced SensElast™ velvet lamination technique to deliver a more comfortable, superior fit.”
Naked’s Signature Line-Free intimates collection initially includes a cup-sized wire-free, seamless bra as well as elastic waistband-free thong, modern brief and hipster style panties. All of these products are made from smooth, lightweight Italian Euro Jersey fabric that incorporates SensElast™ velvet lamination on the inside of the underbust, waistband and leg opening to help these products stay in place more comfortably as well as prevent rolling at the waist and ride-up. Signature intimates are designed for all day effortless comfort and a light as air fit that, true to Naked’s brand mission, feels and looks as if you are wearing nothing at all. The first pieces from this collection come in black, nude and cobalt blue and bottoms retail for $24-26 and bras for $62. The Signature Line-Free collection is available for purchase at www.wearnaked.com and select retailers.
Naked was founded on one basic desire, to create a new standard for how products worn close to the skin fit, feel and function. Naked's women's and men's collections are available at www.wearnaked.com, and Naked has a growing retail footprint for its innovative and luxurious innerwear products in some of the leading online and department stores in North America including Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, Dillard's, Soma, Saks Fifth Avenue, Amazon.com, BareNecessities.com and more. In 2014, renowned designer and sleepwear pioneer Carole Hochman joined Naked as Chief Executive Officer, Chief Creative Officer and Chairwoman with the goal of growing Naked into a global lifestyle brand. In June 2015, Naked announced a strategic partnership with NBA Miami HEAT star Dwyane Wade. The 3-time NBA Champion, 11-time All-Star and Olympic Gold Medalist joined the Company's Advisory Board, and is the Creative Director for a signature collection of men's innerwear launching 2016. Naked is now headquartered in New York City and plans to expand in the future into other apparel and product categories that can exemplify the mission of the brand, such as activewear, swimwear, sportswear and more. http://www.nakedbrands.com/
