Compact and light fabric structures are inspired by the touch of dolphin skin and fish scales that enhance performance in the water. Reduced drag and quick dry fabrics feature in ensuring a stealth-like cut through the water. Matte and bright fabrics feature with lucid accents that glint in the water achieved from yarn use and from metallic and iridescent print placement and tipping.

creora® highclo™ guarantees longevity, with high compression knits zoned into strategic points to create core stability for support, allowing swimmers to glide through the water effortlessly. In addition to traditional racer back one piece suits and sculpting swim shorts for men, fabrics must be quick dry and hydrophobic in encouraging speed. A growing sector for the fitness swimwear sector is the inclusion of built-in bra support, inspired by the sports bra sector.
