Many new lines are being presented at the show: refined, creative and technical, they satisfy the expectations of a market looking for products that stand out from the crowd.
DIGITAL FABRIC: men as well
The Tunisian digital print specialist is presenting its first menswear collection: split between several lines, 52 patterns are showcased on polyamide or polyester with an ‘easy dry’ finish, featuring tropical motifs, florals, graphics, urban décors and large-scale figurative placed motifs. Fabric surfaces are soft and silky or more creative (voile, rib, etc.). A number of well-known men’s beachwear brands have already made their selections.
INNOTEX MERKEL+RAU: sleep tight!
Knits sprinkled with little cacti, mini exotic fruits, hot-air balloons, butterflies, wading birds and small figurative motifs, at once fresh and light, are featured in the brand new nightwear collection by the German specialist. These are showcased on cotton/elastane blends and on a brand new Micromodal for nightwear, or as higher cover motifs on polyamide/elastane for lingerie.
BE BE COTTON: effective double-face fabrics
Specially designed for sports bras, the Taiwanese company’s new double-face fabrics feature a breathable polyester or recycled polyester surface on the inside and plain or printed cotton on the outside. Alternatively, cotton on the inside and polyamide on the outside. Be Be Cotton is also offering “baby” cotton, made using a blend of cupro and polyester or high-stretch polyamide, for yoga pants.
