Into the Spec­trum

High com­pres­sion fab­rics fea­ture a four-way stretch prop­erty that takes on a biomimetic ap­proach to the mus­cu­lar struc­ture of the body. Re­flec­tive fab­rics and trims emerge in feather lightweights along­side high-tenac­ity fab­rics that make use of mi­cro fine steel-strength aramid fi­bres.

The trend fo­cuses on per­for­mance boost­ing char­ac­ter­is­tics that im­bibe a ro­bot-in­spired ap­pear­ance in terms of the struc­ture of the prod­uct. Pre­cise, com­pact and pro­tec­tive, the ma­te­ri­als are softer and more com­fort­able wear­a­bil­ity-wise than their pre­vi­ous ver­sions.

In­tel­li­gent in­ter­faces on the tech­ni­cal or face of the fab­ric im­prove per­for­mance by of­fer­ing cool­ing effects, wa­ter re­pel­lence, UV pro­tec­tion, mois­ture man­age­ment and quick dry tech­nol­ogy.
