The LYCRA Company unveils AW20 legwear trends

by Underlines

The LYCRA Company issued its highly anticipated global trends forecast for Autumn/Winter 2020-2021. Each year the fashion experts from Stijlinstituut Amsterdam create a capsule collection that showcases the latest legwear innovations from the Company’s portfolio of brands including LYCRA®, COOLMAX® and THERMOLITE® brands, enabling customers to use the trends and create the season’s must-have looks powered by The LYCRA Company’s most advanced branded fibre solutions.

“We have been inspiring our customers with our legwear trends forecast for more than 20 years; it’s a value-added benefit of working with The LYCRA Company that our customers appreciate,” said Sybille Bald, global segment Director – legwear, The LYCRA Company. “This year’s trends tell a story of inspiration and possibility and embraces size diversity. Each look features technologies we have developed to satisfy unmet consumer needs in legwear comfort and performance.”


The young, urban creative community takes a curatorial approach towards style, allowing for coincidence and mixology while celebrating the unpredictable. The cheerful rainbow knee-highs feature LYCRA® MADE TO FIT YOU technology to comfortably fit plus size calves, and the top band stays in place without digging in or leaving red marks. Classic camouflage gets a colourful update and enhanced durability, featuring COOLMAX® toughFX technology, which helps keep the wearer cool by transporting moisture away from the body.


Black comes alive when combined with luminous and fluorescent bright colours. Leggings feature THERMOLITE® FAR INFRARED technology to generate gentle warmth, while LYCRA® BLACK technology provides durable true black colour with no glitter or grin-through. The LYCRA® FUSION™ TRUE TO YOU technology prevents ladders/runs, enhances the natural shine of legs, and offers a 3D-fit that keeps its shape.


Rich, dramatic colours and metallics signal a rebellious and glamorous feminine revolution is on its way. LYCRA® MADE TO FIT YOU technology creates stay-ups that stay up and feel like a second skin, which makes it perfect for everyday wear, while the shimmering, eye-catching socks feature LYCRA® SOFT COMFORT technology to reduce red marks on the skin and LYCRA® T400® technology for excellent shape retention.


These looks pay homage to the past, but feature today’s most advanced technologies for greater comfort and lasting performance. Fishnets are reimagined as these knee-highs feature LYCRA® COMPRESSION technology to revitalize tired legs and LYCRA® fibre for a better fit and lasting shape retention. Last but not least, the argyle-inspired socks are made for the 21st century and feature COOLMAX® EcoMade technology to keep the wearer cool and dry. This fiber is made from 97% post-consumer waste, which extends the life of polyester through recycling and reduces waste.
