We have created a high-end swimwear print range for our customers, not only covering the trends for spring summer 2013 following on from our recent Carvico colour forecast blog post, but also creating a convenient stock service range with workable minimums. This gives our customers a chance to access the high-end quality base cloths and print designs which are usually available only as a custom design service with high minimums.
- Fashionable designs
- Story boards with trend inspiration
- Fine gauge light weight circular knit base cloth
- Key fashion colours to match
You have probably noticed there is a strong trend this season towards light weight, fine gauge, circular knit fabrics. Therefore our Italian supplier, Jersey Lomellina product Creta and Wonder ranges are the perfect base cloths for this range.
Below is a preview of the designs and inspiration boards which are exclusive to Eclipse Textiles.
Bohemian discord is the essence of this look with
wild abandon and primal instincts prowling the
beaches. High octane and spirited these designs are
not for the faint hearted. Unabashed brights blur
into muted beige, blending while clashing in a visual
Porcelain pure and denim cool, this laid back
Mediterranean look is destined to be disarmingly
charming. New age sirens emanate calm confidence
and allure with this pretty but sophisticated
interpretation of lacey seas.
Deliciously sweet and intrinsically sexy, this refined
line is perfect for exclusive island retreats. Fresh
combinations of subtle brights creates a new
strength and twist to tropical traditions. Deceptively
fragile this look delivers a powerfully feminine
Chromed contrasts and serpentine slickness define
this new species of chic. Clean lines and sensual
suggestions dominate the shores and infinity pools of
the rich and famous. Inspired by timeless
monochrome and transformed into a daringly sexy
but aloof vibe.
The print base Creta is an extremely light, very fine elasticized jersey fabric that is breathable, fresh, soft and quick-drying, it ensures the perfect fit.
Key fashion solid colours displayed on the fabric swatch boards match back to the Wonder base cloth. It is soft, light, compact and ultra flat. Wonder has been designed to combine lightness and breathability, but is also high quality and has style.
The prints are stock service, but we are also making our Jersey Lomellina Wonder base cloth available to our customers by dropping the airfreight cost as a package deal when you purchase the Creta digital prints. They are available on a 1 roll (approx 70mtr) minimum and will take 10-12 days to arrive especially from Italy.
They are beautiful prints, I hope you enjoy working with them as much as we did creating them.
