A new generation of luminosity features and sheen lifts from denim surfaces. Structures are precise and compact allowing for the yarns and finishes to create the desired effect, as ethereal and mysterious luminosity appears to float on surfaces.

There is a surge of luminosity set to embrace denim, delivering products that stand out from the ubiquitous indigo and black denim tones at retail with new technical looking tones and coating. It is time for denim to shine, looking to classic stretch sateens and multi blends in delivering the look from the textile ingredients through to stretch translucent coatings that work on comfort and super stretch bases. For holiday delivery there will be an iridescent shimmer that features. The emphasis in this direction also highlights cleaner technologies within the textile chain from bio synthetic dyes through to laser finishing and new tech processes.

Core sun creora® spandex/elastane delivers a strong natural touch, a modern take on classic denim, with engineered prowess in creating fabrics that are embracing and smoothing in the silhouette. This direction calls on lighter weigh chambray structures, going very light for fluid appealer with a jeans-look signature. There is more to denim that jeans, and this is where non-jeans brands are looking to source new fabrications to incorporate into their collections.
