And textile veterans Hyosung and Lenzing announced a partnership to launch its new sustainable “Home Everywhere” collection, inspired by the ongoing work from home, stay at home trend that continues to endure throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Its collection introduces new sustainable fiber collections modeled after what consumers want: comfortable, versatile and sustainable apparel “that can be worn for multiple occasions and last longer,” the brands said.

The Home Everywhere collection is comprised of performance fibers and yarns that prioritize sustainable comfort, which are divided into three concept groups: deep, rich color; soft touch, and functional. Lenzing and Hyosung will present the collection at Interfilère Connect, taking place online through Oct. 24 and Performance Days Munich from Dec. 9 to 10.

Meanwhile, the geniuses at SITA NYC recently introduced styles for its spring 2021 collection and put forward the brand’s first dress, a convertible piece with drawstrings in the front and back that can be tied multiple ways, and features flattering dolman sleeves — and a leg bearing slit for a dose of sexy. The brand is known for SITATECH, its prized proprietary, machine washable fabric that wicks away moisture and neutralizes odors due to permanent agents embedded within the material, allowing for seamless transition between work, play and travel.

Though the brand is self-described as seasonless, SITA NYC introduces new styles and colorways a few times throughout the year, according to the company.
