Lightweight and embracing, creora® spandex/elastane delivers a touch of body and depth to circular and warp knits geared towards fitted silhouettes but also delivering the desired fabric for fit, flare and drape aspects that continues as a strong trend. The characteristic of the fabrics holds better malleability in the final garment form, allowing designers more opportunity in creating detailed silhouettes.

The embracing aspect of this direction also pushes the increased interest on the warp knit and woven front in delivering garments with built-in shaping, perfect for dresses and trousers for a smoothing and slimming finish dependent on the level of compression used. Compact surfaces feature with inspiration derived from traditional structures re worked as solid and printed fabrics work side by side, with varying levels of luster complimenting the look.

This isn't just destined for womenswear, there is a notable increased interest for the menswear sector with creora® spandex/elastane delivering comfort fit in wovens and streamlined silhouettes in the knit sector.
