Invista held it 2016 Lycra fiber legwear seminar in China on May 31. Over 100 representatives of mills, brands and retailers with a stake in the leg wear segment of the Chinese marketplace attended. Invista is the owner of the Lycra fiber brand and one of the largest integrated producers of fibers and polymers.
The event was a one-stop opportunity to get up-to-date on global leg wear trends and the increasingly wide range of consumer benefits delivered by Lycra fiber technologies. Attendees were briefed on growing demand for color creativity and how Invista’s Living Lights technology can help improve dyeing and finishing processes to help meet it. The natural appearance of existing styles can be heightened or readily enhanced with deeper, more saturated fashion effects.
Lycra fiber variants are also designed to deliver maximum freedom of movement and gentle shaping benefits. The high recovery-low hysteresis characteristics of Invista’s Shaping technology, in particular, aims to enable optimal combinations of comfort, perfect contours and stylish good looks.
The latest Invista leg wear innovation combines the better-than-bare aesthetics and silky touch of ultra-fine fibers, such as Lycra T777F, with the patented Lycra fusion anti-laddering technology. Super Summer Sheer hosiery can be produced on standard knitting machines using complementary Invista technologies.
