Liebaert’s return to the show will certainly not go unnoticed. A loyal participant since the early days, the company made a significant contribution to the dynamism and success of the Interfilière shows. The fabric producer is returning to Paris with a collection that stands out from the crowd. “Liebaert focused on a number of new projects during its few years’ absence. This was a way of diversifying and ensuring the company’s longevity. A strategy that has enabled us to guarantee profitability. We have maintained excellent relationships with our extensive clientele in the intimates sector. Bodyfashion remains our largest market and that’s likely to be the case for years to come. Our return to Interfilière was in our best interests,” explains Alain Liebaert, Company CEO.
A major new innovation, the NXT.GEN range, features several types of knit (tulle, dull, glossy, etc.) using reco®NYLON, a recycled polyamide from Nurel (generating only 53% of the carbon emissions of standard nylon 6), which is created within a closed system, using nylon waste recovered from the spinning process, and produced in a facility which uses only renewable energy. The nanostitch® fabrics are another highlight of the collection. Developed around a key product, an ultra-soft nanostitch® with a very sensual hand-feel, these circular knits in “second skin” polyamide offer high elasticity (39% elastane) and are very light (125g). “We’re very proud of our EBC gauge 40 or Electronic Beam Control jacquards. We’re the only company that owns machines of this type which control every single yarn. These fabrics are exclusive to Liebaert. They offer a combination of different base structures and patterns in a variety of yarn types: dull or glossy, sheer or opaque, in tone-on-tone or contrasting colour versions. Depending on the structure used, they are ideal for intimates or sportswear,” explains Joan Bebronne, Designer and Creation Manager.
Liebaert has always chosen LYCRA® fiber for its premium collections because it not only gives fabrics unique advantages in terms of comfort, perfect fit and shape retention, but also gives them unprecedented performance for finished products with high added value.
A collaboration that is confirmed with the launch of the line of jacquards EBC gauge 40: a range of innovative and refined stitches for lingerie, beachwear, sportswear and athleisure/sportswear. Featuring LYCRA® BEAUTY and LYCRA® SPORT PCE ™’s technology, it’s the promise of unequalled comfort and performance.
