A renewed and energized approach without any compromises features in this trend, as high tenacity yarns feature alongside the personal performance that Sensil® delivers. This is about getting the best performance from your apparel as well as your personal best, especially in the active sportswear sector. All-day comfort, robust fabrics and a personalized environment push to the ultimate in goals is the result. There is a strong sustainable aspect to this direction through longer lasting wearability and reduced home launderings as Sensil® BodyFresh antibacterial gives a fresh effect in multiple applications.

Classic wovens and knits feature in next generation developments, as fabrics get lighter in weight yet more robust. This is about pushing the boundaries, influencing the growing performance aspect in the ready-to-wear and travel wear sectors through to activewear and active intimates. Sensil® Innergy play a pivotal role in pushing the wearer and enhancing the performance through muscle invigoration. Adding to the comfort element and proof that these high performance yarns from Sensil® aren't just confined to the activewear market but are also crossing over in to the street sports and living wear sectors.

Compression and shaping feature alongside moisture management and cool touch fabrics are becoming par for the course. High performance, comfort, versatility and longevity in apparel in all sectors equates to a happy consumer. The focus is on effciency, right through the textile chain to the final garment. Getting enhanced performance is key, with this direction taking on a semi-dull approach in contrast to brighter applications. Today's consumer is educated and knows we have the technology to do this and is reliant on her favorite brands to bring it to the market. So, let's bring it on with Sensil®.

Classic black and gray feature alongside white, complimented by a roaring red and victorious bold primary tones complete with golden yellow. The hues can also be taken down through innovative blending and color contrasting, for a subtle and aged look.

MATERIAL Lightweight double knits in hybrid blends with contrasting color combinations Air textured yarns for added strength and soft touch lightweight fabrics Super soft high tenacity wovens – going lighter in weight but incredibly resistant including semi-transparent rip stops High performance authentic denim in hybrid blends Yarn dyed crisp wovens with a papery, matte touch for contrasting surface effects including dobby and birds eye structures Zoned, body mapped performance in warp knits through to seamless applications
TEXTURE Grainy and grungy physical or optical textures versus clean and matte surfaces Polygon structures for optical vivacity through clever use of yarn Melange effects are further enhanced through innovative raised jacquards or embossing for a visually 3D ‘protective' statement Matte touch – there is no shine coming though here it ranges from hardcore on the activewear front to a natural touch for travel wear and intimate apparel Micro mesh and porous surfaces are used as inserts Aged and worn finishes – this direction doesn't look to being brand spanking new
