The fabrics or materials will be revolutionary such as comfortable, soft to touch and durable, retaining its shape and resisting chlorine ten times more than  conventional fabrics.

For example, the textile Evanesce by Koral. It has moisture managing, body smoothing compression fiber built to wick away perspiration and inhibit unpleasant odours.

The attention to detailing, partly quilted as design element, luminous shine and discreet hardware will bring something new to the activewear trend.
