A deliberate mishmash is causing excitement of historic proportion as luxury and street-wear brands collaborate, sports brands team up with fashion designers, and limited edition capsule collections are more the rule than the exception. Gone are the silos of yesteryear. Today's brands know that by sharing ideas and working together, they can attract new customers and expand their reach. This collaborative approach inspires fabric constructions to cross over into new territories. Denim influences ready-to-wear and activewear, functional outdoor fabrics cross into fashion. Diversification is key as we share ideas and know-how into new markets. What is also important is DARING to push what we are good at to new areas, as multi-functionality and incredibly lightweight fabrics emerge.

A rebellious spirit takes hold as surface structures become unruly and irregular to comple-ment the raised volumes and fantastic bases we can create through acute structures en-hanceable with digital printing or heat transfer optical trims. We don't live in a perfect world, and this concept inspires a renewed irregularity. Seamless does this through drop stitch construction in creating innova-tive looks with decorative open-work, not just for activewear but for ready-to-wear too. Stop playing it safe! Move away from the basics and get creative.

daring colors

Circular knits in matte and bright contrast deliver exciting visuals and sensational touch, as do 3D optical effects and physical structural appeal. Push the color palette to the limit – even to the point of clashing. Dare to be different and stick out from the crowd, especially on a performance level where we see micro touch featherweight knits entering the market with barely-there feel but acute precision. Try something different and daring, with guaranteed permanent performance and aesthetics from Sensil® that will stimulate the senses, both optically and through touch. This journey is going to be an exhilarating one!

A moody palette that inter-weaves with accented bright to create strong definition on the surface. Take it dark, take it bright, but be daring in its use, in solid on clashing combinations, making a strong statement for the season.

Raised surfaces — layer mesh & double knits. Irregularity rules — look to prints for a distressed and carefree spirit. Unruly surfaces and color use. yar dyed effects for changeant moving when worn. Opposites attract — compact vs textured.

ZYIA - Item - 3524 - Men's Navy Clubhouse Trainer Pant 36

We built them from a highly-breathable, quick-drying technical fabric that has the look of a wool weave and the feel of silk. With a hidden, soft elastic waistband that wicks sweat and the pants adapt to your movements.
