As a spinner it is vital to show direct partners the potential of using their dynamic colored range of eco centric materials. For Spring/Summer 2020 season, ECOTEC® looks at an oceanic coolness and organic vegetal texturing, playing with the ebb and flow of nature in soft tonalities for jacquard open, clean plaids, bayaderes and new athleisure semi plains for Polaris and Chagall qualities. New casual textures and crisp, dry Prince of Wales checks work in Pegasus yarns, while Phoenix is colorized in fancy mesh stripings. The lightest double face combinations, or elaborate open lace effects make the most of the Ginerva luxe quality. Texture and movement come from manipulated pleated stripes and tonal jacquards or in random surface textures using smart blended Phoenix qualities.
