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.
