TEXTILE TREND - ACCELERATE - FOR SPRING/SUMMER 2018


TEXTILE TREND – ACCELERATE


A turbocharged feel features as fabrics and trims in this sector are outstanding in delivering enhanced performance, exceptional protection and premium function. High compression fabrics, feature in four-way stretch, taking on a biomimetic approach to the muscular structure of the body. Zoned compression fabrics in various power/weight ratio protect and embrace the muscular structures of the wearer. Reflective fabrics and trims feature in featherlight weights alongside high-tenacity fabrics using micro fine steel-strength aramid fibers. In the past the technology has been focused solely on the function, but for the Spring/Summer 18 season we need to look to lighter variations and more detailed surface effects that don’t deny the true benefit.

Performance boosting, there is a renewed modernity to this trend, it takes on a robot-inspired appearance in terms of the product structure, whether it be fabrics or trims zoned and inserted in the final garment. It is very precise and compact, protective and most importantly appealing, with a much softer and more comfortable wearability than before.

Intelligent interfaces on the technical or face of fabric improve performance from swim, running and triathlons, offering cool touch effects, water repellency, UV protection and quick dry. The fabrics are super modern and super sophisticated. These aren’t for the fainthearted, these are for athletes that want the best from their sports gear on terra firma or the high seas.With ACCELERATE they are set to have their wishes answered and receivethat added physical and mental determination to reach the winning line and achieve their personal best.
