(Filed Under wholesale Loungewear News). BODY publisher Nick Monjo interviewed Mapalé co-owner Angela Tobon about her company’s latest loungewear collection.
MONJO: I see you have incorporated more plus sizes in the lounge collection. It seems that plus or curvy is now a bigger part of Mapalé.
TOBON: We believe everyone is sexy and beautiful and should have the opportunity to feel confident with our styles. Additionally, we have received an overwhelming response to our plus size segment, and will continue to support our customers who keep coming back for more.
MONJO: You start the latest catalog with a “Radiate Confidence” segment. Why you are emphasizing that?
TOBON: Mapalé starts the catalog with some sexy and comfy styles that can help you radiate confidence. The Mapalé woman is powerful and curious, and during this time, she will release her inhibitions to be able to share optimism and let her energy shine. While doing this, she will let her body talk with cute combinations of comfortable fabrics, lace and blue pattern outfits.
MONJO: “Sexy Redefined” is another section near the front.
TOBON: The Mapalé woman is sexy and trendy; they want to feel sexy, comfortable, and confident at the same time. In this segment, Mapalé has them covered with the classic black and grey styles in different silhouettes, including cheeky bottoms and adjustable drawstrings.
MONJO: How does the lounge theme work during this pandemic?
TOBON: Since the pandemic, loungewear has been our go-to all-day wear outfit. We understand that fashion and comfort are essential during these times. Mapalé Lounge pieces are perfect for cuddling up while watching movies with your partner or even to spend the day working from home.
MONJO: What are the retail price ranges?
TOBON: This Lounge collection includes a wide range of styles such as two-piece sets, sleep chemises, shirts, and rompers. You can find them in small, medium, large, extra-large and even some styles in plus sizes. The collection starts shipping mid-September and the retail prices average from $20 to $50.
MONJO: How has the lounge catalog/collection changed since last year?
TOBON: One of the most exciting parts of this catalog is that we introduced some Halloween themed styles on our Triple Treat/Threat capsule! This capsule includes styles with designs such as ghosts, witches, and even skeletons to get you in the Halloween mood. They will help you bundle up indoors and get cozy while eating Halloween candy with your family and friends. Customers are already loving these styles.
