PARIS — Blame it on the high-stamina ath-leisure trend — performance, comfort and easy care were among the watchwords at the recent edition of Première Vision Paris here, with mills presenting all-terrain, user-friendly technical fabrics geared to the urban commuter lifestyle without compromising on style.
Take Schoeller Textil’s denim with a reflective yarn woven in and tweeds with a reflective finish, men’s outerwear specialist Newman Global’s waterproof polyester in a reflective camo print or François Girbaud’s playful capsule for Eurojersey — the Sensitive Preformers — focused on fit, form and function. Produced by Petratex and using Eurojersey’s patented Sensitive Fabric fitted with 3-D stretch properties — including a deep stretch — the line included a pant with inner back pockets filled with silicon pouches to enhance the wearer’s curves, a la Kim Kardashian.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
