Nearly 100 intimate apparel and swimwear retailers across Germany — from small independent specialty shops to major stores — participated in the window display contest for the Autumn/Winter season 2016. The LYCRA® brand sponsored two awards (one for specialty stores and the other for larger lingerie departments) within the contest, and they were presented at the annual gala on March 5th, 2017 in Munich. One of the criteria for the awards was to clearly communicate the unique benefits that LYCRA® fiber adds to intimate apparel.
A larger retailer TC Buckenmaier, located in Crailsheim between Nuremberg and Stuttgart, won the LYCRA® brand award in the category for larger lingerie departments. Its display had an amazing layout with special wallpaper bought explicitly for this event that amplified the theme of the contest, “With LYCRA®, you have a winning hand.” The retailer even enlarged a customized queen of hearts playing card and used its own shapewear garment as the heroic queen.
The German window display contest’s 2017 summer edition is starting on April 24th so look out for some creative swimwear displays – either in-person in Germany, or on our dedicated Pinterest board (coming soon).
