   5 TEXTILES TRENDS FOR FALL/WINTER 2016/17  


TEXTILE TREND 1 – ACTIVATION


The connection between the body and fabric combined with the motion and friction of the sports activity acts as a three-way catalyst. ACTIVATION ignites the latest functional factors that enhance performance and wellbeing.


TEXTILE TREND 2 – DUALITY

The deep-rooted desire of natural content and touch continues as nature’s ingenious appearance and performance pushes to a higher level of interpretation. It isn’t just the proposed inspiration that fuels this trend; the growing understanding of more responsible production is key as eco friendly processes combine with sustainable production.


TEXTILE TREND 3 – HARDCORE

Achieving a goal and gaining that exhilarating adrenalin rush inspires HARD CORE. This trend takes on a tough appearance and content through innovative fiber and fabric compositions. The need for personal protection in the activewear sector is increasing combined with the softer touch these durable and protective fabrics deliver.


TEXTILE TREND 4 – DEXTERITY

The connection with optically stimulating the consumer through color and prints is crucial in moving the market forward. It’s time to be creative and trigger the senses without neglecting the desired performance and protection of the fibers, fabrics and finishes. Work it subtly or push it to the extreme and energize bestselling ranges.


TEXTILE TREND 5 – CIRCUIT

As smart technology continues its inescapable connectedness within consumers’ lives, it is time to take a look at the hyper-connectivity mood. It’s not just smart phones and tablets that dominate, but the connection and benefits that next generation fabrics can bring.
