BEACON  Direction File Download

Standing out from the crowd continues to be a consumer puller as bright luminosity shine through in a gray world. Bright synthetics bring enhanced luster from liquidity to metallic shine in lightweight slinky knits but with volume. All over sheen contrasts with iridescent finishes in varying degrees of shine, this textile direction embraces all levels of lustre from sophisticated to downright brilliance with a twist.

Colored crystal perfect surfaces sit alongside enameled coated surfaces, with a glazed look for a subtler offering. For new generation luster look to liquid-like brilliance with a changeant effect, reacting to contrasting light and fit and fluidity. Surfaces in both the knit and woven sector are compact and smooth, allowing the desired lucidity to dominate and react to the light from subtle sheen to the next level of lucidity with a brilliant wow factor.
