Power-stretch knits: ever finer and ever more elastic combined with stretch membranes to add-up
Bi- or tri-layer fineness: ultra-performant lightness for tops and bottoms. Neat and matt surfaces, discreet, suiting-style prints.
Camouflaged camouflage: barely discernible patterns that emerge and disappear in matt/shine, mists of pixels, subtle clouds and shadows.
Fancy reflectives: over-printed or woven into weaves, ever lighter and sportier, in a playful and aesthetic functional note.
Augmented cottons: a natural that stands up to natural elements! Waterproof coatings or waxings, natural/synthetic bondings, breathable blends, waterproof and windproof membranes.
Cosy inside: 3-layer polar-bonded synthetic stretch, performant teddy-bear fleecy backs, thermal and fast-dry tee-shirt knits.
Authentic hybrids: carded wools or membraned boiled wools.
Anti-UV: for tee-shirt knits and shirts.
Inflated/botoxed: puffer mania, shock-resistant roundness, waterproof, breathable and/or wind-proof quilted fantasy. Anti-duvet fineness, pre-compartmentalized double-faces for injecting feathers.
Leather and skin aspects: a lamb-like fineness and suppleness, to pad or not, enhanced with water- and wind-proof performance.
Waterproof wools: combed suitings, flannel visuals, waterproof/breathable membranes and coatings, light and compactable weights.
Elegant neatness: impeccably waterproof synthetic blends, lustrous or satiny aspects, for the trench that does it all.
Cosmic metals: extreme shine, between satellite and disco ball.
