Hyosung Fashion Design Centre (FDC) has released its new Autumn/Winter 2022/2023 textile trends, giving a sneak preview of what major intimate and swimwear brands will incorporate into their collections in 2022. Sustainability, comfort, adaptability and texture are key textile trends suited to their range of 100 per cent recycled regen performance fibres.

Mega-Trend 1

Big City Wanderers – Refined basics for all seasons and categories will offer versatility and adaptability. It’s all about making things smarter, rather than making more. Sub-trends include:

  • Trans seasonal Basic: Due to ongoing lifestyle shifts, a need for trans seasonal basics has increased, leading basic wear to evolve into more sophisticated iterations.
  • Daily Texture: Classic textures such as rib, waffle, or crepe jersey gain importance in the casual wear market. Knitted with functional yarns, these familiar textures evolve into must-have essential pieces offering versatility.
  • Versatile City: Consumers expect purchases to have practical function for multiple uses. Everyday clothing made with functional fabrics that adapt to changing environment will provide reassurance.

Mega-Trend 2

Maximal Techniques – With high functional fabric developments and need of basic better items fast tracked due to the global pandemic, demand for high-performing essentials is growing. Sub-trends include:

  • Thermoregulation: As activities shift between different environments and needs, consumers seek core items that adapt to changing temperatures. Cooling and warming techniques will play a key role.
  • Move Booster: Consumers will increasingly expect fabric innovations and comfort stretch as a given, not only for performance wear, but also in core items as well. Update core pieces by emphasizing comfort and support.
  • Tough Layers: As more consumers resume their outdoor activity, apparel needs to work harder to withstand all the elements. Lighter, more durable and protective layers will become essential for outdoor apparel.

Mega-Trend 3

Sensual Moments: Invite physical and emotional comfort – and offer enhanced soft touch to sooth anxious consumers. Sub-trends include:

  • Relief Softness: Consumers who are increasingly craving comfort and wanting to feel secure, have increased their need for soft, comfortable fabrics.
  • Cozy Plush: Pile fabric, a must item for winter, will be upgraded with soft-touch and eco-friendly fabrics.
  • Decorative Textile: Decorative textile with soft touch approaches consumers emotionally.

“It is clear that sustainability, versatility, and performance along with interesting textures for a tactile experience, are key textile drivers for next autumn/winter,” said Lewis Hong, team manager Hyosung Fashion Design Centre. “We are fortunate to have a broad range of options across our elastane, nylon and polyester portfolio available to meet these forecasted textile trends.”

Hyosung’s range of GRS-certified, 100 per cent recycled creora regen spandex, Mipan regen nylon and regen polyester are unique in that they also incorporate performance properties that help brands retailers tell a distinctive story. For instance, Hyosung’s creora regen fresh delivers a sustainable freshness with anti-odour benefit. It’s Mipan regen aqua-X nylon and regen Askin polyester offers a cooling performance. Hyosung’s chlorine resistant properties of creora highclo can protect swimwear fabrics and extend their life – making them more durable in a harsh swimming pool environment.

“As a textile solutions provider, we are grateful to work and collaborate with the entire value chain to help our partners keep innovating and delivering products their consumers want,” said Hong.
