Elena Panagopoulos, designer at HANRO for 7 years, tells us about her favorite series – MOA, the trend collection for Spring/Summer 2019. In the interview, she shares with us what makes the series so special and gives us her best styling tips.
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO CREATE THE MOA SERIES?
With Moa, I wanted to create a seductive yet elegant lingerie that would feel like second skin. It was important for me that the undergarment was comfortable to wear while having a strong visual appeal. The ultra-fine lace has a very decorative effect thanks to the circular patterns. It also has straight and smooth edging, so the lace doesn’t show through the clothes.
WHAT WAS THE PROCESS BEHIND THE CREATION OF MOA?
It’s always about coming up with something new. In the Moa design process, I noticed this very soft lace and fell immediately in love with it. I, then looked for a material that not only complemented but also embodied lightness and softness. I was able to find an ultra-light, soft, high-quality fabric by “Liebaert” from Belgium. These two combined created the ultimate summer undergarment.
WHAT ARE THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE MOA SERIES?
Moa is a fun and whimsical style with lots of exquisite lace. We picked up on the soft cup bra trend and added a classic triangle bra. We also included a playful crop top. One highlight you should not miss, is the opulent lace detailing that is on the back of the crop tops and the front of the soft cup bras. The trend color, Dark Brass picks up the fashion looks from the outerwear and it also works well as a neutral option.
WHAT MAKES THE MOA SERIES SO SPECIAL?
Aside from the innovative, super-smooth Jacquardtronic lace, the on-trend shapes, and the fashion color, Dark Brass, this seductive lingerie is comfortable and easy to wear. It doesn’t constrict you because the polyamide fabric has a high elastane content making it feel like a second skin.
Under a semi-transparent blouse, the Moa series’ crop top and bodysuit are real eyecatchers with their delicate lace details in the back. The crop top can also be worn under wide or low-cut summer tops to create a trendy layered look.
