Billon Design: knits go wild for Summer 17

Oct 19, 2015

In its mills based in the Lyon region, D2P Billon is making waves in the world of knits. The collection developed for the 2017 summer season is putting a whole new twist on motifs and aspects without sacrificing the standards in terms of resistance to chlorine and sunscreen afforded by LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fibre.

Stripes break out from routine treatment, taking on mottled or fluorescent touches. Lines get broken up, twisted and raised.

Neat herringbones have also been shaken up with lines that overlap.

Jacquard motifs for ready-to-wear collections draw on vintage themes. The treatment used helps to smooth aspects achieved with yarn-dyeing.

Optical motifs and raised patterns accentuate two-tone knits to round this bold selection off.
