A quirky retro mood with inspiration from early Technicolor movies, fabrics react through hue but also through movement as light fluidity features. There is a strong connection between a fashion delivery and the technical fibers on offer, classic muted prints that pull from the past but are reworked into delivering a heightened sense of femininity.

Matte aspects feature, smooth touch through to grainy appeal but the color palette is unique, a move away from traditional tones, muted in nuance and worked perfectly through the classic prints from 50s butterflies to micro florals This is a feminine trend, very much soft in delivery where movement features strongly through draping and flounces. Shaping continues to be an integral part of this direction, applied through the inclusion of creora® Power Fit in liners or incorporated into the outer shell.
