To deliver creative innovation and sustainable textile solutions Hyosung’s Fashion Design Center (FDC) – an interactive fashion studio has released its SS 2025 Textile Trend report that forecasts the key materials major apparel brands will incorporate into their collections next year.
FDC’s overarching textile trend for SS 2025, is called “Regenerative Life,” which reflects an uplifting and positive mindset that focuses on the well-being of self and the planet.
According to Hyosung FDC Team/General Manager Gary Oh, consumers are seeking long-lasting, multi-functional apparel made with eco-friendly materials from purpose-driven brands that they feel good about wearing.
With this insight, FDC has categorized Regenerative Life into these three themes where it recommends apparel applications made with Hyosung’s broad portfolio of sustainable creora spandex, performance nylon and polyester yarns.
- Active Essentials – Basic functions such as cooling, and comfort stretch that are expected in performance activewear among today’s consumers, have become essential in street and fashion apparel. Within this category’s Not-so Basic Basics, Next Level Comfort, Vacation Bound and All-Ready Active sub-trends, FDC presents how these performance features can be woven into eye-catching apparel with eco-friendly, functional fabrics.
- Great Escape – This theme focuses on outdoor fabrics geared to consumers who are seeking physical and mental health by escaping in nature, regardless of the conditions that are thrown to them, in its four sub-trends – Nature Gym, Protective Basic, Everywhere Layers, and Bleisure Travel.
- Wellness Strategy – While rest was considered a short-term solution for reducing stress, it’s now considered a long-term strategy for a positive lifestyle and sustainable well-being. Wellness Strategy addresses comfort fabrics for loungewear and intimate apparel in its Travel-Ready Essentials, Comfort Everyday, Feel-Good Texture, and New Femininity sub-trends.
“For SS 2025, we predict textile trends focusing on materials that allow consumers to feel the best they can be both physically and emotionally,” Oh said. “It’s such an exciting time for textile innovation and our team finds great joy in providing creative solutions that align with our global partner network’s needs.”
