NOURISH IT  Direction File Download

A surge of wellbeing and harmony collide as a natural nuance in fabric inspiration goes up to a new level. Performance is par for the course in the softer aspects of sports as natural touch fabrics deliver a welcoming embrace, enhanced by discreet function from the inclusion of creora® spandex. Quick dry, moisture management fabrics in this sector have body while featherweight knits require the stability of spandex/elastane. Power stretch compression knits for shaping and control deliver a smooth silhouette. Soft velvety, brushed touch features for a strong sense of gentleness, complimented by discreet performance factors.

From powdery touch to smooth marblesque surfaces, color becomes an integral part of this direction. Fabric structures pull from the relief of coral through to the hexagonal aspect of honeycomb. A raw and irregular appeal features as this direction doesn’t have to be perfect surfaces. Instead look for those that are optically enhanced through contrasting yarns to create an illusive textural effect. Prints play a key role in taking this direction to a new level. Comfort fit and performance guarantee that the body gets what it requires.
