Invista, Garmon & Candiani to debut Concept range of jeans

INVISTA, a leading provider of fiber and fabric solutions to the denim industry, is working with renowned finishing expert, Garmon, and the premiere mill, Candiani Denim, to introduce a concept collection of jeans with unique aesthetics utilizing low impact finishing treatments specifically designed for elastomeric fabrics.

According to Jean Hegedus, INVISTA’s global director for denim, the collection brings together the best in class in fiber, fabric, and finish development. “The garments are all made with INVISTA’s dualFX technology which combines two INVISTA stretch offerings – LYCRA fiber and LYCRA T400 fiber – in a single yarn for fabrics with high stretch and excellent recovery,” says Hegedus.

“The fabrics are designed and constructed by Candiani Denim, who has been producing fashionable, high-quality fabrics for over 75 years. And finally, the jeans are finished by The Italian Job, a division of Garmon which combines unique chemical processes with Italian-inspired design to create denim garments with fashionable appeal.”

Maurizio Morosini, Garmon’s marketing manager, explained the intent behind the collection: “In working with these fabrics, we wanted to employ finishing techniques tailored specifically to enhance the characteristics of fabrics with LYCRA fiber and LYCRA T400 fiber,” Morosini said.

One of the developments is called Galaxy and uses a special chemical combination to make the denim look like a night sky. Coated knee patches, achieved with the use of self-polishing polymers, also provide an interesting local leather-like effect. As part of Garmon’s commitment to responsible chemistry, many of the finishes used on these garments contain no formaldehyde or potassium permanganate.

Another effect is achieved through the use of a new Garmon product, FST RW, which helps to retain the original shade and appearance of raw fabric. When used in combination with certain finishes this allows laundries to create areas of high contrast on the jeans, thus expanding the aesthetic possibilities.

According to Alberto Candiani of Candiani Denim, the collection offers brands and retailers fresh inspiration which they can interpret according to their unique needs. “By adopting these fabrics and finishing processes into their own lines, brands and retailers can achieve garments with excellent performance as well as amazing aesthetics,” Candiani said. “It is really a win-win situation.”

The new collection debuted at Kingpins Los Angeles earlier this month and will be displayed at upcoming denim trade shows including Kingpins Hong Kong (August 19-20) and Kingpins Amsterdam (October 29-30) or by appointment.
