Not just for guys, girls are getting in on the action as cross training and triathalete participation grows. There is a grungy mood as a sense of blood, sweat and tears feature. Workouts are pushed to the extreme and every ounce of energy is valued, aided through the use of high compression and energy conserving apparel.

Both warp and circular knits feature for the high compression fabrics, with creora® performance H-350 for high compression and engineered power for the shapewear sector including core stability in tops and bottoms. Clean-cut warp knits are bonded for a clean and streamlined finish. Compression layers range from allover 360° high impact compression for enhanced performance and recovery, through to integrated zoned compression for strategic areas.

This is an inspirational direction, pushing the body to its limits with a little help from high compression knits and zoned body mapped garments. There’s a worked-in, grungy aspect to this direction coming through in fabrics and silhouettes that make the most of today’s technical fibers.
