Reactive to the surrounding elements or to the body’s physical state, this is a growing textile direction that incorporates a lot of sectors. It is no longer confined to the outdoor market, but also influencing streetwear and the growing athleisure market that is taking the business by storm. Ranging from insulation to traditional thermoregulation, core stability and reflective elements, this textile trend is about anything that changes through the wearing of it, the heat or motion from the body to protecting the body from the elements it is exposed to on the outside.

A combination of natural and synthetic yarns will feature. This trend is about pushing the limits and the fabrics reacting to the challenge and delivering the desired level of performance, whether it be protecting the body directly through high compression fabrics, keeping it warm or just the simple protective elements of shutting the wind and rain out.
