SIGNAL  Direction File Download

Pounding the urban jungle or working out at the gym, this trend is geared towards running and high compression garments. Black remains key but signal tones also feature emerging in reflective aspects. Zoned styling focuses on ergonomic and anatomical placement, maximizing performance and renewing energy as fabrics embrace and support the body’s muscular structure through yarn application and finishing.

Reflective aspects and high gloss finishes feature with a modern and compact glide-like effect. The city landscape inspires, not just through the colored perspex signal aspect, but the way architecture is bringing greenery and life to our buildings. This reflects in the sustainable aspect in this direction from recycled synthetics through to dope dyed tones reducing the textile process.
