Sensil Spring Summer Trendbook from Sensil

nostalgia imageATTITUDE

Today's young consumers have a different approach to life than prior generations. They value their time differently, and want to spend more of it doing what they want to do, rather than what they must do. This demand for speed and eciency doesn't just come from the way they live: controlling many aspects of their lives through their smart phones from communicating, monitoring their health to controlling appliances in their homes, it also comes through what they wear and how performance fabrics can deliver new experiences. Curious but confident of the future, as they embrace virtual reality through to artificial intelligence and the way they shop at retail, as 'clicks' is fast replacing 'bricks', this trend emulates the need for a push in the great ingredients we have in delivering next generation fabrics, that would have just been a vision of the past. With Sensil® yarns, this visionary approach is now here.

This translates through to a very tactile experience, we really are looking at heightening the experience, going lighter than previously ever could have been conceived in fabric weights, yet not losing any of the ecacy previous qualities delivered. Voyeuristic in its approach, this mood is inspired by the future as technology develops at a rapid rate and how the consumer interacts. Additionally, the need for enhanced social responsibility ensures that sustainable aspect from yarns through to textile and garment production are more efficient on our natural resources.

Lightweight performance, sensational touch and perfection combine through smart textiles that react to the wearer's performance and environment. Compact structures in knits and woven feature with enhanced function. An interconnectivity from the intelligent fabrics with the body ensures a comfortable experience, this is high performance through to easy care for multiple applications. Fabrics are intriguing and enticing to the consumer and previously thought impossible, but to today's consumer nothing is impossible, so prepare with Sensil® Nylon 6.6 to efficiently deliver next generation concepts today.
