Elements of the activewear sector feature in ready-to-wear as woven classics get comfort stretch and performance through functional finishes as designers are continuing to be inspired out of their zone. Traditional structures with a sense of heritage team-up with today’s sustainable fibers from cellulosics to recycled synthetics.

Compact, mono and bi stretch wovens appeal for the shaping ready-to-wear sector, offering sculpting finishes through soft and high performance lining inserts through to single layered outershell stretch achieved from the inclusion of creora® performance H-350. Traditional and basic wovens and knits are updated in line with today’s essential performance, with comfort stretch for menswear and womenswear key to the consumer’s pursuit of fit and comfort in more formally structured pieces.
