SEOUL, South Korea , October 14, 2022 (press release) –

Presenting an Interconnected Future focusing on materials that are kind to our environment, provide comfort, and multi-function as we engage in person again

As a textile solutions provider Hyosung continually seeks to bring innovation across the value chain that exceeds expectations. To bring value and creative solutions to its wide network of partners, Hyosung’s Fashion Design Center (FDC), an interactive fashion studio, spans the U.S., Europe, and Asia surveying progressive brands & retailers, and researching consumer insights. Hyosung FDC has released its forecasted Fall/Winter 23/24 Textile Trend report, which provides a vision of what major apparel brands will be incorporating into their collection next year.

FDC’s textile mega-trend for FW 23/24 is called Interconnected Future. This mega-trend is broken into four sub-trends and subsequent themes. Within each theme, the FDC team recommends a number of Hyosung’s multi-functional and sustainable yarns and apparel applications- most notably the company’s new 3rd party certified creora® bio-based spandex made with bio-based materials derived from industrial corn, along with its MIPAN regen ocean recycled nylon made from discarded fishing nets. 

Concept garments made with recommended yarns from the FDC FW 23/24 Textile Trends will be featured in the Hyosung stand at ISPO Munich located in Hall A1, booth 312 this November 28-30. 

Additionally, more detailed information on FDC’s FW 23/24 Textile Trends in a weekly Trend Byte series featured on the Hyosung Performance Textiles blog and LinkedIn page. 

“As the Covid-19 pandemic has passed, we foresee an enhanced interconnection among social, environmental and economic systems triggering a mindset shift from individualism to interconnectedness that is shaping new customer attitudes and behaviors,” said Lewis Hong, Team/General Manager, Hyosung Fashion Design Center. “For FW 23/24,we foresee textile trends focusing on materials that are kind to our environment and provide multi-function and comfort. Practical aesthetics and interesting surface detail are also important now that we are able to personally engage in community once again.”

Following is a preview of Interconnected Future’s four textile sub-trends, called Sport Smart, Exploration of Outdoors, Practical Aesthetics, and Science of Comfort.  

The Sport Smart sub-trend touches upon essential base layers, winter performance leisure hybrids, core fabrics using smart technology for in-home and IRL gyms, year-round water sports, and futuristic meta streetwear where physical and digital worlds collide through fantasy-inspired aesthetics. 

Exploration of Outdoors sub-trend addresses the ongoing rise in the outdoorsy lifestyle trend. Key themes include textiles incorporating new levels of protection taking extreme weather patterns into consideration, comfy knit mid-layers in functional fabrics, textiles that can transition between winter recreation and all-day wear, and functional outerwear for urban nomads.  

As consumers adjust to the new work/life hybrid lifestyle, the Practical Aesthetics sub-trend focuses on textiles suited for comfortable office-ready apparel, loungewear with fashionable detail and textural interest, cozy tactile teddy-looking fleece fabrics for indoor and outdoor wear, and practical performance wear that meets comfort for home activewear.

And finally, the Science of Comfort sub-trend reveals that more diverse, sustainable fibers are leading the trend in new next-to-skin layers, and soft compression with additional technical properties will be key to basic underwear and loungewear for all-day performance comfort. Additionally, playful digital brights push classic lingerie into fashion limelight.

“As a textile solutions provider, we are grateful to work and collaborate with the entire value chain to help our brand partners continually innovate and deliverer products even before their customers know they want them,” said Hong.
