LABYRINTH  Direction File Download

A combination of modern art through to unique openwork structures and prints feature. Inspiration pulls from the abstract work of Mondrian through to Pop Art aspects. This is bold and bright, for both hosiery and socks, with semi matte and matte featuring. Print placement is allover or irregular panel effects, with the appeal ranging from fun fashion to a more sophisticated delivery.

This direction is all about color, lets get the color vibe moving and inject a renewed energy into the legwear offering through solid, printed and jacquard finishes. The ongoing trend towards skirts and dresses combined with boots ensures that legwear from this direction is seen.
