SUSPENSE  Direction File Download

Optically deceiving, this is a classic direction with warp knits features strongly in matte handles for woven-like delivery. Trousers and jackets look true and tailored with sharper colors key to this group. It's time to move away from the classic black and gray and deliver some gusto with color throughout the different deliveries. A sense of urban renewal features, with recyled fibers including MIPAN® regen recycled nylon teamed with creora® eco-soft for a stoic sustainable message.

Bold and deceptive in its delivery, ribs and stripes feature, you really need to play around with contrasting yarns, colors and spongy textures to enhance the look. There is also a strong delivery of classic interlock and traditional urban activewear being reworked into more sophisticated mix'n'match ready-to-wear leading the way to innovative finishes and prints. Certain elements also pull from the activewear sector, with double-sided knit/woven contrasts and functional elements given a new comfort level with creora® spandex/elastane.
