To continually deliver creative innovation and sustainable textile solutions across the entire value chain, Hyosung’s Fashion Design Center (FDC), an interactive fashion studio that spans the U.S., Europe, and Asia surveying progressive brands & retailers researching consumer insights, has released its forecasted SS 2025 Textile Trend report provides a vision of the key materials major apparel brands will be incorporating into their collection next year.
FDC’s overarching textile trend for SS 2025, is called Regenerative Life, which reflects an uplifting and positive mindset that focuses on the well-being of self and our planet. According to Gary Oh, Team/General Manager, Hyosung FDC, consumers are seeking long-lasting, multi-function apparel made with eco-friendly materials from purpose-driven brands that they feel good about wearing.
With this insight in mind, FDC has categorized Regenerative Life into the three following themes where it recommends apparel applications made with Hyosung’s broad portfolio of sustainable creora® spandex, performance nylon and polyester yarns.
- Active Essentials: Basic functions such as cooling, and comfort stretch that are expected in performance activewear among today’s consumers, have now become essential in street and fashion apparel. Within this category’s Not-so Basic Basics, Next Level Comfort, Vacation Bound and All-Ready Active sub-trends, FDC presents how these performance features can be woven into eye-catching apparel with eco-friendly, functional fabrics.
- Great Escape:This theme focuses on outdoor fabrics geared to consumers who are seeking physical and mental health by escaping in nature, regardless of the conditions that are thrown to them, in its four sub-trends – Nature Gym, Protective Basic, Everywhere Layers, and Bleisure Travel.
- Wellness Strategy: While rest was considered a short-term solution for reducing stress, it’s now considered a long-term strategy for a positive lifestyle and sustainable well-being. Wellness Strategy addresses comfort fabrics for loungewear and intimate apparel in its Travel-Ready Essentials, Comfort Everyday, Feel-Good Texture, and New Femininity sub-trends.
“For SS 2025, we predict textile trends focusing on materials that allow consumers to feel the best they can be both physically and emotionally,” said Oh. “It’s such an exciting time for textile innovation and our team finds great joy in providing creative solutions that align with our global partner network’s needs.”
