Climate change, cost of living increase, and back to nature movement influence forecast 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 and retailers researching consumer insights, has released its forecasted FW 25/26 Textile Trend report, which provides a vision of the key materials major apparel brands will be incorporating into their collections next year. The global climate change and cost of living crisis is a key influence in FDC’s FW 25/26 Textile Trend report. It’s supported by the back to nature movement where consumers are doing what they can to protect the earth by choosing apparel made with natural/bio-based textiles. According to Gary Oh, Team/General Manager, Hyosung FDC, consumers are seeking long-lasting, multi-function apparel made with planet-friendly materials to reduce harmful carbon emissions, and thermally-regulated products to help lower home energy expenses. With this insight in mind, FDC predicts the three following themes for apparel made with Hyosung’s broad range of CREORA® and certified sustainable regen brands of spandex, performance nylon and polyester yarns. - Minimal for Future: Consumers will be more mindful of choosing seasonless, genderless and ageless apparel that can be used for multiple purposes; thermal-regulating pieces for saving energy; and apparel made with blends of natural fibers blended with bio-based synthetics, which are detailed in the theme’s three sub-trends - All-Round Basics, Thermal Resilience, and Nature Power. - Well-Being Theory: Soft surroundings and comfort-feeling that helps to enhance wellness is in the spotlight for the FW 25/26 season. Apparel with barely-there feel along with refined textures will be popular as reflected in the theme’s Body-Hugging Softness, Comfy Stretch, and Reimagined Ribs sub-trends. - Conscious Preparation: Consumers continue to enjoy time in nature for all the lovely benefits it provides. Thus, they need earth-friendly, multi-functional apparel that can withstand whatever shifting weather conditions Mother Nature decides to bring on. Sub-trends within this theme include The Sweat Life, Mindful Explorer, and Lightweight Adventure. More detailed information on FDC’s FW 25/26 Textile Trends will be presented in a weekly Trend Byte series featured on the Hyosung Performance Textiles Creativity Inspired blog beginning February 21, 2024.

At ISPO Munich held last November 28-30, we were honored to showcase many of our Portuguese Mill Partner fabrics at the show. As you may know, an evolving trend has developed where European brands are increasingly sourcing high-quality, and certified sustainable textiles from European mills to take advantage of shorter lead times, faster delivery times, and lower transportation costs. Portugal is a key supply market for global luxury brands as it has a reputation for producing high-end textiles with a focus on natural fibers and traditional manufacturing methods - and we are very excited to be partnering with many of the best Portuguese mills on the development of new luxury and traceable textile innovation! In our blog story below, we highlight 8 of our Portuguese Mill Partners. We hope you enjoy!

Planet-friendly swimwear brand helps to clean up oceans with new ReLux line made from ghost fishing nets Vitamin A, a California-based swimwear brand that combines feminine design with sustainable innovation, is the first company to launch a swimwear collection made with a new 100% recycled fabric developed by Hyosung and Hung Yen Knitting & Dyeing. The new sustainable swimwear collection called ReLux launched January 29, 2024. Hyosung and Hung Yen introduced their successful sustainable textile innovation – a swimwear fabric made from an 80/20 blend of Hyosung GRS-certified regen Ocean 100% post-consumer nylon made from discarded fishing nets, and RCS-certified 100% recycled regen Spandex – during Interfilière Paris last summer. According to an independent 3rd party Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), the manufacture of 1 kg regen Ocean nylon reduces CO2 emissions by 73% and water consumption by 98% as compared to production of 1 kg of conventional nylon. “We wanted to support the development of this new material and we thought that the Vitamin A customer would be most likely to understand why it was important,” says Mark Sunderland, VP of product innovation at Swim USA, parent company of Vitamin A. “Our customers want to know that their swimwear is not harming the planet – and with our ReLux line, we’re offering them a product that actively improves the health of our oceans.” Founded in 2000 by California native Amahlia Stevens, all Vitamin A bikinis and bodysuits are designed and produced locally in California from plant-based and recycled materials. As a proud member of 1% for the Planet, the company gives back to organizations who work to protect the oceans. “Vitamin A has ranked among the top five sustainable swimwear brands for the past three years,” said Claudia Anselmi, Hung Yen General Director. “Given its commitment to sustainable production and the protection of our oceans, we are glad Vitamin A has attentively selected our fabric – N850 FishTale – that is entirely focused on marine preservation for its new ReLux collection.” “Vitamin A exemplifies the fusion of sustainability and style, demonstrating that eco-friendly fashion can effortlessly inspire and enable positive environmental choices among consumers” said Laura Nilo, Hyosung US Marketing Manager - West Coast Lead. “It’s an ideal brand for commercializing our 100% recycled fabric for swimwear, and we look forward to furthering our collaboration with regards to sustainable textile solutions.” More information about the new Vitamin A ReLux collection of bikinis and one-piece swimsuits can be found online here.

Expanded regen Bio-Based spandex and global sourcing strategies presented at Kingpins NYC January 18, 2024: Seoul, South Korea – Anticipating the denim industry’s focus on agile global supply chain and sourcing strategies, in addition to more diverse and certified sustainable textile offerings, Hyosung is looking forward to introducing its 2024 sustainable textile and sourcing solutions for denim at Kingpins NYC, booth #12, January 24-25th at Basketball City. According to Hyosung, the strategic emphasis on global sourcing for the denim industry is expected to play a crucial role, emphasizing the efficient utilization of resources from different regions to acquire the best raw materials. Furthermore, the procurement of sustainable materials and the adoption of ethical production processes are considered essential. The ability to swiftly adapt to the ever-changing landscape of consumer trends is crucial. “Sourcing is set to be a pivotal factor in defining the strategic priorities of the denim industry in 2024,” said Simon Hong, Hyosung Global Marketing Lead – Denim. “Ranging from global sourcing practices and agile supply chain strategies to sustainability considerations, these elements are anticipated to collectively shape the industry’s trajectory and achievements this year. We are fortunate to fulfill many of these requirements with a global manufacturing footprint, strong mill partner relationships, and an extensive portfolio of certified sustainable textile offerings.” Furthering its commitment to continuous innovation and providing sustainable solutions for diverse needs across the denim value chain, Hyosung will introduce a unique offering of certified sustainable materials that make denim better at Kingpins NYC. · regen Bio-Based spandex – for jeans made with renewable resources Creating a more powerful, traceable sustainable story, Hyosung is expanding its regen Bio-Based spandex offering to include options for the yarn to be made with both 70% and 98% renewable resources. Hyosung was the first company to commercially introduce USDA and SGS-certified regen Bio-Based spandex made with 30% renewable resources in 2021, which has been successfully adopted by leading global brands. According to an independent 3rd party LCA, the manufacture of 1kg regen Bio-Based spandex reduces its carbon footprint by 20% as compared to the production 1kg of conventional spandex. · regen Spandex – for jeans made with 100% recycled materials In 2020, Hyosung introduced RCS-certified, 100 percent recycled regen Spandex made from reclaimed production waste. Since then, leading denim brands and retailers have adopted the fiber to offer a completely recycled product to consumers. · CREORA 3D Max spandex – for recyclable jeans Circularity is top of mind and denim brands and mills are following Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Jeans Redesign guidelines for recyclable denim. Among its guidelines is a requirement that denim be made with a minimum of 98 percent cellulosic material leaving 2 percent of the content for stretch or synthetic material – a challenge for Jeans Redesign participants as consumers are accustomed to high stretch and comfort. Hyosung’s CREORA 3D Max spandex delivers high-performance stretch and recovery with a very small portion of spandex content uniquely allowing the garment to be recycled. Hyosung has expanded its CREORA 3D Max spandex offering to include more sustainable and functional versions of the fiber that match the same performance and recyclability benefits as conventional CREORA 3D Max spandex. They include new USDA and SGS-certified regen Bio-Based 3D Max spandex, RCS-certified, 100% recycled regen 3D Max spandex made from reclaimed production waste, and CREORA Easy 3D Max spandex that provides soft power with excellent stretch and recovery.
