Inspired by the need for style-conscious, sustainable garments that are versatile for every life situation, Aeance was created as a brand that merges ready-to-wear with technical apparel. The brand’s values are timeless minimalism, substance and understated luxury.

Aeance is committed to creating garments with the least possible impact on the environment and has set up a supply chain focusing on eco-sustainability and ethical responsibility. The Women`s Light Padded Jacket of the look selected for ISPO is the result of a collaboration with the acclaimed industrial designer Konstantin Grcic.

Knowing the transformative power of fitness, Daquïni was founded in 2012 to help women bridge the gap between how they feel and how they think they look when they are working out. Each Daquïni item is made in the EU from high-quality Oeko-Tex certified materials. The brand’s first choice in fabrics is Sofileta, with its luxurious technical fabrics with Roica V550 premium stretch, awarded with Cradle-to-Cradle Innovation Institute’s Gold Level material health certificate.

Teri is made from the finest bluesign approved Schoeller 4-way stretch fabric containing Roica V550 premium stretch sustainable fibre. The pant is insulated with PrimaLoft Gold Luxe and repels water and dirt without PFCs, thanks to Schoeller's ecorepel Bio finishing.

The Scott Racing Team, the Italian Mtb Pro Rider Team born in 1988, selected the high performance for active clothing identifying Rosti, Sitip and Roica as strategic partners to ensure unique and performant biking outfit composed by tights and jacket.

Made with the special Behot fabric by Sitip, constructed with active performance materials belonging to the Roica Feel Good family, it not only insulates, but generates up to two degrees of heat as you work out, as certified by CeRism, Outdoor Sport Research Centre at Verona University.

“Long life stretch, superior shape retention and best breathability thanks to the Blizzard by Sitip fabric ensures thermal comfort and easy care to the users. A valuable choice that perfectly matches the performances of an experienced team of specialists.”

Its high-tech debut collection for Spring 2019 provides women with an all-new luxury concept of timeless foundational apparel made in New York balancing concealed performance features and style to meet womens’ everyday dynamic lifestyle.

The newly-created made in Italy Sitatech fabric includes permanent agents that neutralise odour, withstand machine wash, and exhibit superior quality. The intricately designed fabric takes on instant appeal with nanotechnology fibres and Roica CF, a yarn with an active smart odour neutraliser property, then knitted in Italy by Maglificio Ripa.
