A luxurious approach in lightweight qualities feature. From extremely elegant to satisfying sensual touch, fabrics will embrace the body in a variety of perfect lusters from full dull to bright and gleaming.

There is a strong tactility about this trend, enticing the consumer to the better levels of quality on the market.

A feel of the 1920s is used as inspiration, an era of beauty and decadence as well as the initial inspiration of travel and communications we take for granted today. The message to the consumer is that it is OK to treat yourself, this is guilt-free pleasure, honoring inspiration from the past and teaming it with Sensil®'s performance values from tomorrow's fabric applications.

Comfort and opulence collide, fluidity features and this trend is particularly important to the knit sector as featherweight circular knits come through in natural-inspired gloss aspects to brighter luminescence. Perfect surfaces feature in a variety of lustres, ranging from glossy marbled effects through to new generation patinas as Sensil®'s fashion yarns in Britex group deliver the undisputed luxurious touch teamed with a regular gleaming effect. Matte aspects also feature, with the hand being superbly sensuous and light.

The characteristic isn't all about touch and luxury appeal, a strong element of built-in function from Sensil®'s performance yarns enhances the whole package as cool touch and all-day comfort features, giving past luxury a new lease of life.
