With technology evolving every day, INVISTA in collaboration with Garmon S.p.A., the premiere denim finishing house, is launching an all-new innovative collection of knit denim concept garments at the ongoing Kingpins Show 2016 in New York City, USA.
Jean Hegedus, Global Segment Director – Denim, INVISTA avers, “We are very excited to demonstrate the finishing options available with LYCRA® HYBRID technology. Knit denim, while growing, is still at the early stages of development, and it’s important to understand best practices for wet and dry processing. Given Garmon’s unique chemical processes and Italian inspired design, we felt they would be the perfect company to help us with this initiative.”
The latest denim assortment incorporates fabrics made with INVISTA’s LYCRA HYBRID technology together with Garmon’s denim finishing techniques, including chemical formulations assessed using GreenScreen for safer chemicals. First presented at the October edition of Kingpins Show, LYCRA HYBRID technology allows manufacturers to create denim fabrics that combine the comfort and flexibility of a knit with the authentic aesthetics and performance usually found in woven denim.
Besides this, INVISTA is also debuting two new warming technologies under the THERMOLITE® PRO brand, and feature the latest commercial fabrics with the LYCRA BEAUTY brand and LYCRA dualFX technology at Kingpins Show 2016.
