SPRING / SUMMER 2018 ACTIVEWEAR TRENDS
FUTURE AESTHETICS INSPIRED BY NATURE
presented by Philip Fimmano
06:15pm approx. end
In bio engineering, insects in are helping diverse industries with new endeavours; from butterfly wings that are studied to understand structural colouration versus pigmentation, to spider silks dreamed up as bulletproof vests and Kevlar-strength textiles or termite mounds examined by architects in order to rethink sustainable buildings. Evolution and innovation are now walking hand in hand.
Activewear is one such industry taking its cues from the insect realm, inspired by the social structures of their societies as much as by insects’ physical attributes to imagine the most futuristic of forms, colours and materials. Insects are made up of a head, thorax and abdomen, the same three areas of interest in today’s active archetypes: focusing on the mind, heart and core. Added to this are their multiple articulations to ply, train and expand the body, their agility when taking flight or their acute “sensurround” vision; since we too seek to be evermore dextrous and perceptive of our terrain.
