The Brazilian textile company, Vicunha, debuted its Autumn/Winter 2018- 2019 collection last week.

Vicunha’s Thomas Dislich, managing director of Vicunha Textil for Europe and Asia, spoke of the continuing popularity of Bi-stretch denim.

The company focusses on soft touch, color and performance for its latest collection, which is made with 100 percent Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) cotton.

“Vicunha has long since been one of the world’s leading companies when it comes to recycling and sustainability and this is something we have perfected over the last decade,” said Dislich.

The collection delves into deeper blues with the help of pure indigo dyestuff for a vintage feel, while creating unique blues in the process.

For athleisure, Vicunha offers options for men’s and kids’ with defined twill weaves in a range of comfort and high stretch options. However, the vintage feel comes in with rigids spilling over from mens into high fashion womenswear—despite most offerings in womenswear featuring stretch and recovery denim.

“We’re continuing to stay on the ball by finding innovative ways to save energy and reuse it during our production process. We are in a position to recycle every ounce of cotton and to save energy and return it into the production cycle, even separating chemical components and reusing them too,” said Dislich.
