ZEST  Direction File Download

Upbeat and energized, Zest pushes the boundaries for putting the letter ‘F’ in fitness, fashion and fun! With the growth of energetic dance fitness classes including the globally popular Zumba workout that appeals to all ages and the continuing interest in high impact aerobics encourages both function from the fabrics. There’s a strong sense of fashion styling with lucid brights and prints featuring in fit and flare silhouettes to compliment core basics.

Clean-cut warp knits appeal for reduced sew and for smooth fit and swing aspects of silhouettes. Light to medium compression from creora® performance H-350 is applied to power mesh lining and high compression outer shell for core stability, used as built-in bra shelves and tummy panels. The embracing aspects of these high compression pieces help anchor the wearer and enhance their performance through high impact movements, conserving energy and protecting the muscular structure. The use of vivid colors in this direction, in matte or brilliant finishes are enhanced with nylon/creora® dyeable™ for superior colorfast fabrics. MIPAN® rexy II and brilliant trilobal microdenier MIPAN® fine deliver illuminated surface effects and new generation shine.
