The mind body connection is enhanced with supersoft, natural touch garments that embrace the body. Bio-mimicry inspires a sustainable, technical approach that emulates nature. Expect to see more geometric inspirations rather than the previous truly organic appeal. Fabrics are natural to touch albeit synthetic.

Hybridization continues to feature as the synergetic approach between natural and synthetic fibers through to hybrid fabric construction comes through. Recycled synthetics work alongside merino wool, silk, cotton as well as performance synthetics in nylon and polyester. There is a push to added technicity, as this natural mood embraces a higher level of performance.
