ABSTRACT ESSENCE  Direction File Download

Cubism and Fauvism inspire prints, as abstract relief and jacquards offered in both textured and prints add a camouflage effect to colorways. What you see isn’t necessarily what you get; there is a need for exploration, a meeting of past masterpieces with the technology and performance delivered by today’s yarns.

creora® performance delivers high compression fabrics in warp and circular knits, with high gloss through to smooth natural touch for a more casual aspect. Solid tones gleam while matte bases carry the abstract appearance of graphics. Featherweight bases look optically heavier through the application of prints with glamorous white an anchor in the entire trend.
