Europa, a leader for over 40 years in high quality and technologically advanced stretch and super stretch denims, presents ES, a collection of ‘smart’ stretch denims that make use of Roica™ EF by Asahi Kasei Fibers Corporation, a next-generation yarn with elevated technological characteristics. The fibre is GRS* and OEKo-Tex Standard 100* certified, and is produced using a highly innovative process that results in considerable savings of raw materials and energy as well as the reduction of CO2 emissions. ES has been showcased in the S/S 2016 collection through three different products: a basic, a denim stretch and a denim super stretch. These are the flagship products of the Europa collection, available in a new smart version. ES is unique and offers added sustainability values alongside high quality and technical standards, excellent fit and recovery and Made in Italy heritage.
The company is also presenting its distinctive interpretations of denim, stretch, bi-stretch and comfort fabrics that focus this season on softness and lightness by playing with different mixes of fabrics such as cotton and Tencel or cotton and modal, and creating singular weaves, with a ‘jersey look’, that provide a soft, plush-like texture.
Unique fabric interpretations are also found in Europa’s casual and sportswear lines where patterns and high tech treatments take centre stage: embroidery enhances stretch and bistretch fabrics, seersucker patterns grace yarn-dyed and solid fabrics, lamé fabrics come in copper and platinum hues. The predominant colours are a mix of natural tones, from beige- browns to fresh yellows, limes and cobalts to intense reds and blues.
All these incredible and numerous variations in denim and stretch fabrics, that also guarantee excellent fit and performance, are made possible through the use of the best technological processes patented in Europe: 3twist®, the exclusive twisting system that gives the Europa stretch fabrics their unbeatable ‘permanent wearability;” Pro.care®, a special finishing process which ennobles the fabric by making it softer as well as more delicate and durable; and Relax finishing, which relaxes the fabric and naturally preserves its purity and integrity.
