All of the garments featured the lasting performance of INVISTA technologies for denim.

CALIK DENIM’S Fly Jean Fabrics, new Athleisure style collection

INVISTA Innovations for Athleisure

CALIK, ÖZAK and INVISTA team held several productive brainstorming sessions where each firm shared their respective premium innovations and learned their differentiated values. This process helped the firms determine the best type of collection to create to meet brands’ expectations for the latest denim trends. The firms selected an athleisure concept, which is a perfect match for Calik’s Fly Jean fabrics which offer impossible lightness, exceptional flexibility, creamy softness. ÖZAK invested in new sewing machines to create the garments as existing denim machines couldn’t handle the special athleisure style collection.

The special athleisure style collection debuted at Kingpins Amsterdam and was well received by leading brands and retailers. The concept garments combined the highly desirable performance benefits of activewear with the authentic look of denim. Featured technologies included LYCRA® fiber for enhanced comfort and flexibility, COOLMAX® technology to stay cool and dry, and THERMOLITE® IR technology for lightweight warmth.
