BILLON: latest novelties to be shown at MarediModa
FRENCH fabric knitter Billon added a new line to its range of swimwear fabrics for S/S 2016. Labelled Mirage, the new line uses yarn, surface and structure as well as visual elements to achieve trompe l’œil effects that serve to camouflage body imperfections and refine the silhouette. The new line incorporates Lycra® Xtra Life premium fibre that safeguards stretch and recovery performance despite exposure to chlorine or sun lotions. The Mirage line is to be premiered at the MarediModa salon in Cannes next month together with creative novelties in the Aqua’lys Body Touch range of shapewear fabrics featuring Lycra® Beauty yarns. These novelties include yarn-dyed microfibre two-tone stripes as well as scintillating plain colours with superfine gauge Lurex metallic yarns.
These novelties, together with the greater security provided by the company’s merger with the D2P Box concern last year, provide further justification for viewing the Billon fabric collection.
