Gayou Lace Innovations in Paris
Gayou Lace Innovations in Paris include “Painted Lace” and “Passionate Flowers.
Flowers and the art of painting are at the heart of two new innovative collections by Gayou Lace heading to Interfilière Paris (July 8 – 10, 2017). Designers heading to stand D52-E57 will be some of the first to see “Passionate Flowers” and “Painted Lace.”
Gayou Lace’s “Passionate Flowers” Collection uses a subtle yarn tension effect to create flowers that feel natural to the touch. Different textures, densities and weights are see throughout the collection in delicate and poetic tones: cornflower, pearl, jade, and coral.
The result is a romantic and vibrant rendering of nature says the company.
The company says “Passionate Flowers” is inspired by their own “Textures in Textronic” theme and is part of larger trend they see of floral lace returning to lingerie.

Delicate, etheeral fabrics may seem like an unlikely canvas, but for a fabric maker, it’s the perfect backdrop. To create pieces in the “Painted Lace” collection, the company uses uses lace as a backdrop on which it “paints” artful brushstrokes of color using a high-tech digital printing technique.
The chosen design is placed on the lace with close precision. This technique is described as a new art form by the company
“In addition, digital printing allows a wide range of color tones and shades; a perfect strong visual addition to entice and intrigue,” said a company rep via press release. “For autumn-winter 2018/19 Gayou Lace has taken us to a Luxuriant Garden, reflected by vibrant tones like garnet red, blood orange and powerful sapphire.”
