Neoprene Fashion

 Neoprene Fashion About Art, Dance, and Leisure                            

Getting the last few days of summer in when you want it to last…this past weekend was incredible on Long Island, the waves were crashing, the temperatures were high and surfers were plenty.

 There was Neoprene on the sand, and some in the water. My new found friends were sporting their wetsuits and tempting the waves, and last looks of summer from the guys.  I am finding more and more designers using this fabric-(Neoprene), in new and inventive ways. Taking this sportier textile to the high end luxury market  and finding a new fit. It can create some fetching attitude. We wear leisure athletic wear on an everyday basis. It's fun to see how it plays out in everyday life, as more and more designers have embraced it. I am loving it on a grey ruffled sweatshirts, as pictured here in the designed sweater by Dice Kayek. I am finding it on bomber jackets, and on laser cut clothes...it translates to an active and fashion lifestyle. Maybe I will make a scarf collection with it. What are your thoughts on the textile? Comfortable? Chic?  Would love to hear from you. Looking forward to seeing it in Fall Fashion. Somehow it might make the last week of summer endless.
