Featherlight Denim-Like Pants

The Airflex Tech Pants Have Six Pockets, a Flexible Design and More

— August 15, 2019 — Fashion
Denim is a staple in the closet of many consumers but isn't as efficient as it could be for flexibility and comfort, which is something the Airflex Tech Pants aim to change.

The pants are crafted with a blend of 10 ounce Japanese pima cotton with synthetic fibers that instantly make them 30% lighter than conventional denim pants as well as highly flexible. The dynamic four-way stretch functionality means they can seamlessly be worn when cycling, sitting for extended periods at the office and much more without losing sight of style needs.

The Airflex Tech Pants have been developed by Rene Lesmes and Niket Pandya, and also feature gel pads built into the waistband that will work to enhance comfort as well as support the back.
Trend Themes
1. Lightweight Denim-like Clothing - There is an opportunity for designers to create lightweight clothing that is stylish, comfortable and flexible using synthetic materials and innovative design.
2. Four-way Stretch Material - The use of four-way stretch materials in clothing items can revolutionize the apparel industry by allowing consumers to wear stylish outfits with maximum flexibility and comfort.
3. Functional Clothing - Functional clothing that can be worn in various settings (cycling, office, etc.) without sacrificing style, quality and comfort is a trend that designers should explore.
Industry Implications
1. Apparel Manufacturing - Apparel manufacturers can use synthetic materials coupled with innovative design to create lightweight clothing items that are highly flexible and comfortable.
2. Sportswear - The sportswear industry can benefit from incorporating four-way stretch materials into their clothing items to create functional, comfortable and stylish outfits.
3. Office Wear - There is a need for functional office wear that can be worn for extended periods without sacrificing style and comfort; designers and manufacturers can fill this gap with synthetic fabrics and innovative design solutions.
