INTERACTION  Direction File Download

The interaction of the body and the garment fuels this direction, from base layers to second and outer layers. As well as high compression and anatomical support, we are also looking at the movement of the body in igniting the function in the fabrics. Energizing aspects through to thermal regulation are combined with creora® to enhance recovery and keep the wearer safe and protected. A delustered protective shell-like look features, contrasting with the brighter surfaces.

Cut-and-sew features in anatomical zoning through to seamless applications, this is die-hard with a difference. The perfect surfaces allow for a new direction in optically appealing tone-on-tone prints, while the perfectly geometrical textures correspond with the body in enhancing performance. This is a new direction, particularly appealing in updating the menswear sector. Detail is key in injecting new life into core bases that have inherent function but will now definitely stand out from the crowd.
