High impact energy wear for the gym through to the ski slopes. There is a push ‘n’ pull element to this trend, as you get back what you put in. Moisture management, quick dry, UV protection, thermoregulation and FIR fabrics feature that enhance circulation that push the energetic exercise and the body just that bit further.

Fabrics react to the desired activity, not just protecting but also enhancing performance levels for results through the actual exercise and recovery. This trend is packed full of performance, not just delivered by the inherent necessity of creora® spandex/elastane but also through the blending ingredients. But a high level function is key. These fabrics are becoming increasingly lighter without losing any of the performance of their previous heavier predecessors. In addition a new generation of colors and finishes reacts to this trend with prismic effects and changeant finishes.
