Unruly  Direction File Download

It’s time to inject a bit of fun and frivolity into intimate apparel as we move away from the traditional smooth fabric surfaces that dominate, and embark on a more titillating experience! A tactile and textural direction features, ranging from a sophisticated expression through to a more amusing aspect. Ruffles and ripples, raised jacquards, erratic openwork effects and blistered surfaces feature alongside a more subtle offering of flat/fancy ribs, plisses and precise openwork and drop stitch details.

Innovative bi-colored yarns create optical 3D fabrics, left flat or manipulated further through pleating to create a more vivid appeal. What is key to this direction is that it can be interpreted by different markets. Fabrics can be taken to delightful new highs or worked in a more tactful way, with detail that makes a difference. Plain knits also feature but are embellished and printed with optical results. This direction is about pushing creativity from the textile mills to the intimate apparel designers. Complimenting and contrasting on textures, colors and through final garment design, UNRULY is a perfect platform for both natural and synthetic fibers, providing a fresh appeal to intimate apparel.
