horizon  Direction File Download

A natural inspiration defines this direction, as a natural touch through to nature’s sensational colors feature. Warp and circular knit fabrics reach new levels of touch in matte and bright results. Fabrics take on a patina, subtly glazed with wet look and calendared finishes. Micro brushed surfaces and air textured yarns deliver a strong tactile appeal, subtly sueded through to liquid-like ethereal hands.

A retro feel emerges in prints as natural elements inspire, with a strong graphic direction enhancing the solids on offer. Flexibility is key, as reversible double knits offer the consumer added value in terms of two for one in bikini combinations. Textures feature, injecting a liveliness to surfaces from openwork jacquards to raised surfaces. The natural nuance of this direction leads to a strong sustainable appeal, with recycled synthetics and low heat setting creora® eco-soft pushing an eco angle.

This direction is perfect to tie in coordinating beachwear collections, from matching beach dresses to hooded tops that easily cross over from the beach to the street through the garment design’s versatility, teaming with ubiquitous denim and active living collections. This is an alluring and refreshing direction, teaming up today’s technology on the yarn front with a hint of nostalgia.
