Shimmering Surfaces:Consider Lurex-inflected jersey to elevate casual loungewear, introducing a new take on heathered materials
Go green: biodegradable polymers in sustainable blends address the entire lifecycle of garments. Roica’s GRS-certified yarns have become a key commodity.
Performance: shape, swim and athleisure wear are ever more technical. Eight-way stretch, anti-microbial and chlorine-resistant qualities increase performance.

Flower power: retro daisies return across mesh, lace and guipure constructions, as suppliers focus on the classicism of overtly romantic blooms.
