Faced with pressing environmental and socials challenges in today’s world, a new creative energy is emerging from the global economic crisis. There is no time to waste when it comes to redefining products and reassessing the conventional framework in which we have been thinking. Crises may challenge us, but at the same time they open windows of opportunity for change. In these difficult times, what buttons can we press to achieve success? Remaining one step ahead is the goal and innovation is the key.
COUNTRY LANDSCAPE (ECO-DESIGN)
A traditional rustic look conjures a landscape of limitless combinations of unusual mixes of color and natural textures inspired by the English Countryside. An essential challenge today is to respond to environmental concerns and the future of the planet by finding a way to fuse protection, well-being and ecology. To meet the global awareness of eco-friendly processes and create deep uniform colors, products are created using NILIT EcoCare recycled yarns.
ALL DRESSED UP (SENSUAL LUXURY)
A mood of fantasy inspires a glamorous haute couture style focused on body-fitted shapes and made from luxurious and sophisticated fabrics. The Couture spirit meets technology! Super-stretch second-skin fabrics in a sensual lingerie mood have a smooth silky hand that provides high luster and a luxurious touch. The timeless elegance of satin and damask is created using NILIT Britex yarn.
INSIDE OUT (COLORFUL FLEXABILITY)
Cool and trendy bodywear worn with audacious streetwear chic is a wild fusion of grunge aesthetics, funky graphic motifs and daring mixes of colors and textures. Worn to be seen, high-energy bodywear is made for action and worn with irresistible spontaneity. Inventive and daring color combinations created from NILIT Colorwise yarn go hand in hand with performance functions and flexibility.
GET FIT! (DYNAMIC VERSATILITY)
For fitness, dance and gymwear, the focus is on trendy trans-seasonal products which enhance performance. Sophisticated ergonomic designs with engineered panels merge fashion with technology. In the search for versatile multi-functional products, fabric textures must reinforce strength and resistance while combining comfort and breathability. NILIT Aquarius yarn ensures moisture management, which remains effective even after repeated washings.
EASY WEAR (WELLBEING & COMFORT)
Responding to the desire for that feel-good factor, simpler means better. Yoga, Pilates and fitness guarantee both physical and spiritual wellbeing. Faced with today’s hyperactive and stressful lifestyle, the benefits of taking it easy are in the front line. The focus is on fabrics which boast softness, lightness and excellent shape retention. An authentic natural handle and melange effect are created from NILIT Arafelle yarn.
PRO PROTECTION (ENVELOPING PROTECTION)
For high-impact activity, the watchwords are protection and resistance provided by garments that envelope and defend the body with materials which brave the elements. Skillfully engineered sports garments must be highly protective yet guarantee freedom of movement. NILIT high performance yarns make it possible to create fabrics which provide extreme resistance and optimal support. NILIT Bodyfesh yarn provides anti-bacterial protection.
