Unforgettable by Brugnoli
Several Italian fashion fabric producers exhibited their beachwear product range by incorporating Lycra fibre into their fabrics at the 2015 edition of Mare di Moda.
According to an Invista press release, Lycra is a quality ingredient that gives fabrics unique stretch, resistance and versatility, which is why it is a favourite for the finest intimate wear, beachwear and sportswear.
“The result is an exciting range of proposals where innovative fabrics combine the creativity and elegance of Italian style with cutting edge technological research and the most advanced materials,” it added.
The Lycra fibre is available in several variants like Lycra Sport, Lycra Xtra Life and Lycra Beauty fibres.
