CHARGED  Direction File Download

An electric approach to activewear, pushing this sector up a notch in colors through to performance. There is a new dynamic that come into play with bright and energetic prints and colorways colliding. This direction pulls from the pro sector of the past and is reworked with strong fashion functionality. Lightweight with the fit from creora® spandex/elastane, CHARGED is an exciting and vibrating direction for garments that cannot be ignored.

Luster also enhances the look with bright to super bright, from yarn content through to lacquered finishes, in getting the charged message across. This is an optimistic direction, one you can’t avoid. It has to have space to grow and develop and the complete concept of this direction is further enhanced by digital prints for hyper realistic effects. This isn’t just about pushing the workout zone it is also about pushing boundaries, not playing by the rules but still achieving the desired success.
