DEMURE  Direction File Download

Classic and streamlined, fabrics in Demure offer a sophisticated approach to swimwear. Part Geisha inspired through to a funky gothic element for an edgier delivery, overall it is a strong sophisticated style that features in a controlled manner. High compression warp knits with creora® highclo™ H-350S feature for the shaping aspect of this group as well as the high chlorine resistance.

The mood is very feminine with a conservative style as sublimation and digital prints recreate the delicacy of cherry blossom on dull paper touch surfaces. In contrast lacquered looks are achieved through calendaring or through PU coatings. Paper touch featherweight circular knits feature with large floral prints, ruched in garment applications in keeping with a retro mood.
