The LYCRA Company, a world-leading innovator in fiber and technology solutions for the global apparel industry, proudly announces the launch of its highly anticipated legwear trends forecast for 2024 and 2025. Each identified trend is powered by fibers that offer the functional benefits today's consumers desire—from cooling and warming to anti-static cling technology.
Annually, through an alliance with the trend forecasting experts from Stijlinstituut Amsterdam, The LYCRA Company introduces an innovative legwear collection designed to spark creativity and offer a curated approach to legwear design.
The development of hosiery, socks, and seamless knitting has played a pivotal role in the evolution of fashion. After several trend cycles that emphasized bare legs on runways, legwear returns triumphantly in all its forms. From hosiery to stay-ups and socks in various lengths, legwear has become an integral part of the 2023 fashion discourse, with exciting prospects for 2024 and 2025.
“Another year, another legwear innovation collection. We aim to inspire and enrich, offering considered design curation and insights into the functional benefits of legwear,” said Jane Gwyther, EMEA Sales Manager for Legwear at The LYCRA Company. “We look at how this can encourage and revolutionize the individual looks of wearers and the business of its makers.”
Four key trends are investigated for 2024/2025. In EXTRAORDINARY, the impact of fashion legwear on the fluidity of identity is celebrated, reflecting the current excitement in legwear design. EVOLUTIONARY draws inspiration from the enduring wisdom of nature, influencing wellness positively. LEG GEAR emphasizes legwear tailored for dynamic living, harmonizing functionality with style. Lastly, SELF-CARE highlights the significance of foundational body care, encompassing skin health and cosmetic legwear, to promote comprehensive well-being.
