For the Spring/Summer 2020 season, the Sensitive® Fabrics collection by EUROJERSEY is focused on technical performance, expressed in two macro themes centred on the Ecoprint and Digital Printing processes. Within these two theme areas, four effects are diversely interpreted on soft sensual fabrics for creating flowing garments with a feminine touch. A selection of prints which proportion the figure with a result that is natural and bodyshaping, poised between a harmonious silhouette and functional comfort. Lightweight fabrics similar to a second skin ensure a perfect fit, ideal for underwear and night wear collections of refined charm, to target a dynamic and versatile woman. Lingerie garments which follow the movements of the body, in an amazing colour palette interpreted by prints played out in transparent and glittering effects, in which gold and metallic finishes are offset by yarn-dyed colour accents.
Two printing technologies come to the fore in the new lingerie collection for Spring/Summer 2020:
- ECOPRINT technology, arising from an expression of good looks and sustainability;
- Digital printing which, thanks to 3D PRINT technology, successfully creates designs and structures which are textural-looking and endowed with realistic threedimensional effects.
ECOPRINT – the innovative printing technique patented by EUROJERSEY which is able to reproduce tone-on-tone and contrasting effects on the smooth surface of Sensitive® Fabrics, thanks to the use of lacquers, colour and metal pigments which create patterns with amazing effects of transparency and high definition luminous contrasts. The resulting fabrics with their soft hand-feel are extremely resistant to rubbing and washing, whether the garment is hand washed, machinewashed or dry cleaned, as well as having a low environmental impact thanks to the elimination of some steps in the manufacturing cycle, with a consequent saving of water (- 60 per cent), energy (-30 per cent) and greenhouse gas emissions (-60 per cent).
Colour pigments printed straight onto the even surface of Sensitive® Fabrics, successfully create decorative effects which enhance aesthetic qualities in the most extraordinary manner. Brocade effects which take us back in time to the eighteenth century-style charm of decoratively embossed textiles and precious jacquard-like patterns applied to the surface of Sensitive® Fabrics; at the same time, the use of metallic pigments and glitter confer sheer glamour thanks to the luminosity of the lurex effect. A play of transparent effects in neutral shades is intertwined with a foliage pattern traced in white pigment. A sequence of shiny-matt effects spring from a cascade of lacquers or metallic glitter, combined with white pigments on the extremely smooth surface of Sensitive® Fabrics.
Digital Printing – 3D Printing – with this printing technology, colours and graphic designs benefit from an extremely precise definition as well as generating high-resolution textures; with innovative 3D Printing, each detail printed on Sensitive® Fabrics becomes a precious element with a pronounced chromatic impact, which translates into an increasingly high quality standard.
The new interpretation in a contemporary key of precious embroidery printed directly onto Sensitive® Fabrics: In this way antique Chantilly lace, knits and macramé are transformed from digital images to prints for subsequent reproduction and placement, together with transparent effects and refined details. With the innovative “Lace Placement Printing” technique, the decorative motif may be printed and placed on the fabric with an exact calculation of the finished product design so as to avoid any fabric waste when cutting and making up the garment. Furthermore, thanks to the particularly smooth surface of Sensitive® Fabrics, each printed detail becomes a precious element creating the optical illusion of a truly threedimensional fabric which adapts perfectly to the figure.
Animalier prints and textures take on a 3D effect thanks to a play of light and dark colours which 3D Printing defines and differentiates on Sensitive® Fabrics, resulting in enhanced textures and a truly amazing hand-feel.
The yarn-dyed effect simulates – to an amazing degree – the look of intertwined yarns which have already been dyed. This high-definition digital technology – fruit of exclusive software and a print file able to create a new category of decorative elements – reproduces the textile structures typical of yarn-dyed fabrics. The extremely smooth and even surface of Sensitive® Fabrics enables the creation of printed micro patterns without colour dispersion. Print and colour renderings which enable the perfection of each individual detail even when the fabric is fully stretched, so much so that the fine textured weaves or micro geometries printed onto the dyed ground are surprisingly consistent and precise.
