The forecast is a valuable source of inspiration for The Lycra Company’s legwear customers, who have exclusive access to the trends before it is released to a wider audience. This enables customers to use the trends and create the season’s must-have looks, which are all powered by The Lycra Company’s most advanced branded fibre solutions.
“We have been inspiring our customers with our legwear trends forecast for more than 20 years; it’s a value-added benefit of working with The Lycra Company that our customers appreciate,” said Jane Gwyther, senior strategic manager – legwear, The Lycra Company. “This year’s trends tell a story of inspiration and possibility and embraces size diversity. Each look features technologies we have developed to satisfy unmet consumer needs in legwear comfort and performance.”
The young, urban ‘Creative Community’ of legwear takes a curatorial approach towards style—allowing for coincidence and mixology, while celebrating the unpredictable.
Under this category, the Look 1 type is cheerful rainbow knee-highs that feature Lycra Made to Fit You technology to comfortably fit plus size calves. The top band stays in place without digging in or leaving red marks. In the Look 2 type, classic camouflage gets a colourful update and enhanced durability. These socks feature Coolmax toughFX technology, which helps keep the wearer cool by transporting moisture away from the body.
Black comes alive when combined with luminous and fluorescent bright colours. Under the ‘Back To Black’ category, the Look 1 type features Thermolite Far Infrared technology to generate gentle warmth, while Lycra Black technology provides durable true black colour with no glitter or grin-through. The Look 2 type uses Lycra Fusion True To You technology that prevents ladders/runs, enhances the natural shine of legs, and offers a 3D-fit that keeps its shape.
‘Opulence personified’ category shows rich, dramatic colours and metallics signalling a rebellious and glamorous feminine revolution is on its way. Under it, the Look 1 type uses Lycra Made to Fit You technology that creates stay-ups and feel like a second skin, which makes it perfect for everyday wear. This look is enhanced by run-resistant Lycra Fusion technology.
The shimmering Look 2, eye-catching socks feature Lycra Soft Comfort technology to reduce red marks on the skin and Lycra T400 technology for excellent shape retention.
The fourth category of ‘Iconic Living’, pays homage to the past, also features today’s most advanced technologies for greater comfort and lasting performance.
Under this category, the Look 1 fishnets are reimagined. These knee-highs feature Lycra Compression technology to revitalise tired legs and Lycra fibre for a better fit and lasting shape retention. The Look 2 argyle-inspired socks are made for the 21st century and feature Coolmax EcoMade technology to keep the wearer cool and dry. This fibre is made from 97 per cent post-consumer waste, which extends the life of polyester through recycling and reduces waste.
