English term or phrase: lingerie deal
His own ties with America - his love for sportswear and a groundbreaking lingerie deal dating back to the Fifties - inspire a glitzy detour across ideas of femininity.

Je n'ai pas plus de contexte à vous donner car il d'agit d'une simple phrase d'illustration.

Merci pour votre aide.

neutral  Germaine: Certainement pas! Rien dans cette phrase ne parle de "cheap lingerie" - surtout pas en association avec "groundbreaking" !

disagree  Daryo: difficult to be sure what this "deal" is, but one can be pretty sure what it isn't // extremely unlikely - especially in this context!

disagree  Tony M: If this were from a customers' POV, that could make some sense; but here, the EN in the s/t wouldn't even be an idiomatic way of expressing that. 'a lingerie deal' isn't the same as 'cheap lingerie'; perhaps the EN word order is confusing you?
