Zooming in on strategic places and specific zones pushes traditional shapewear into a new league, as intelligent ingredients combined with the power of creora® spandex/elastane deliver the perfect fit, smoothing and new levels of performance. High compression vapor-like fabrics lead the way in smooth paper touch opacity to gleaming silk-like knits. The foundations for this direction is the need to have the power that creora® spandex/elastane can deliver, for the overall fit and recovery and the new direction towards sensational touch and wearability that can also be achieved.

Pulling from the activewear sector, the know-how of moisture management combined with creora® Fresh guarantees a flawless fit combined with all day freshness. Color must also be considered in this sector, black and flesh tones continue in strength but the appeal these high powered fabrics offer and the performance they deliver crosses over into a stronger fashion offering in intimate apparel. A hybrid approach of fashionable lingerie with the technical aspects in shapewear merging and creating fashionable collections with the function, performance and intelligence of shapewear.

This direction is about enhancing the female form for all occasions in new fabrics that embrace the body with a barely there effect. A new level of luxury is delivered through quality fit combined with new haptic. A new technicity revives and updates a staple sector of the intimate apparel sector, we have the ingredients we just need to rethink, rework and revise recipes for tomorrow’s consumer.
