Under the motto ‘New Naturals’, the CALIDA Spring/Summer 2018 collection is dedicated to transformation, once again proving that tradition, innovation, quality and a good eye for trends are the perfect combination. CALIDA is demonstrating that it is now more progressive than ever before, showcasing an innovative design concept, natural materials with high-tech benefits, and modern colour and print combinations.
In the women’s collection, classic shapes are given a fresh new twist with casual O-shapes, culottes, Bermuda shorts, oversized sleeves and stripped-back, clean cuts in the daywear line. The lines between daywear and nightwear are becoming increasingly blurred and the brand has created a whole host of styles that are ideal for use as underwear, loungewear and even nightwear.
The women’s collection is characterised by its innovative finishes, such as clean cut bonding and the laid-back athleisure look for loungewear, and high-quality materials, including satin, woven fabric and full lace. Multifunctional materials, such as MicroModal® Skindry, Seacell™, Bamboo-Tencel®, milk fibre blends and Cotton Quick Dry round off the selection of high-quality materials in the Daily Functionwear range without compromising on femininity.
The CALIDA men’s collection is inspired by a sleek, modern silhouette and clean design. New additions include textured styles that provide a luxurious level of comfort without showing up under clothes (despite their feel) and the slim fit of the Urban Boxer line has been incorporated into the collection for the first time. High-quality materials such as swiss+cotton and innovative functional fibres remain par for the course.
Daily Functionwear is now its own line within the men’s collection and has been enhanced with innovative designs, such as cut edges on the hems and necklines, and modern colour schemes in ocean shades and tones of grey. Materials such as Bamboo TENCEL® or a blend of cotton and MicroModal® transform items in the Daily Functionwear line into premium basic essentials for fashion-concious men.
The colour scheme for the men’s collection includes blue tones, ranging from space blue and vintage indigo to blue grotto and faded denim, as well as various tones of grey, from dust melé and tower grey to a light shade of fog. Understated checks and minimalist prints add the ideal finishing touch to the Mix&Match lines, creating a timeless feeling of modernity.
