Color is key in basics through to high level fashion hosiery, as a lively focus shines through. Focus on intense and vibrant tones with streamlined fit from the inclusion of creora® spandex/elastane from comfort fit to high level leg contouring. Matte finishes work perfectly with the depth of color but also look to elevating the hue through bright synthetics for a shimmering finish.

It is not just hosiery that takes up this trend but socks too. creora® eco-soft teamed with cotton, silk, wool or cashmere is a perfect combination in delivering bright basics through to a luxury level. Solid or multi-colored in construction, EPIC ensures that consumers are going to have a great day and feel good. The appeal of the colors can also be applied to the shaping hosiery market.
