Interfiliere Paris Focus on Ultra-Lightness Trend for Jan 2017 Show

Interfiliere is the leading international fabric and sourcing platform for Intimates, swimwear and activewear. 

This January 2017 session the expert panel at Interfiliere will exhibit ultra-light fabrics and technology for Intimates, swimwear and activewear in the 'Exception' area of the show. Expect directional images, innovative designer garments, objects and future-oriented materials, expressing the lightness of movement, of colour, materials and hand-made details.

A definite sign of the times, our modern view of happiness is synonymous with the pursuit of hedonism and lightness.

The fabric trend for lightness in the body fashion industry has always been prominent but it gains traction right now in response to heavy societal issues and continual advancements in technology. We are seeing a drive forward in innovation resulting in even lighter foams, thinner bonding/lamination and finer gauge microfibres, which is exciting for design but often poses challenges in fit and quality. 

Tactile Trends are excited to see what kind of product functionality and aesthetic the latest fabric developments can offer at the Exception area of the show next year.

How do you think the ultra-light fabric trend could evolve in Intimates, swim and active wear? Leave a comment below, we'd love to hear your thoughts!
