Duelegs, a brand of Gambetti Group, a company boasting a long history in the legwear sector, has chosen the Paris fair to launch a unique garment that is destined to become the fashion of the future. TIGHTINGS™ is the perfect combination of the latest generation seamless tights and the classic leggings.
For the launch, Duelegs has created a collection made exclusively with Fulgar yarn and LYCRA® stretch to provide maximum comfort and fit.
More than just a garment, TIGHTINGS™ is a technical innovation that has inspired a new product category. It’s made using an exclusive patent pending technology by Duelegs based on a development of the classic tights machine, adapted to create garments that can be worn as outerwear.
Four unique models, each featuring a high-performance yarn by Fulgar.
– BIANCA with Nanofibra by Fulgar, with a thermal effect
– CELESTE with EVO® by Fulgar, with an ultra-light effect
– ROSSANA with EMANA® by Fulgar, with a Kinesio Taping effect
– VIOLA with Q-SKIN® by Fulgar, with a skincare effect
This collection is all about innovation, and is designed to give women something totally new. As well as the special features every model offers, the main benefits of TIGHTINGS™ can be found in the extraordinary feeling of well-being and freedom they give to their wearers, thanks to a total absence of seams on the legs and the presence of LYCRA® stretch fibre, which enables the garments to embrace the female silhouette, enhancing and emphasising the wearer’s shape, bringing out the best of her natural appeal, with a light compression and reshaping effect where necessary.
“It’s a significant challenge for us, one that means breaking out of the world of female legwear to enter the much wider sportswear world, which has experienced exponential growth in recent years. We’ve invested two years of our energy in research and development, to the point where we are now ready to launch TIGHTINGS™ and we have chosen, also for this important project, a qualified partner such as Fulgar, a company that always supports us with its innovative yarns. We are optimistic that our innovation will shake up the legwear market, which has long remained static”, says William Gambetti, CEO of GAMBETTI GROUP.
“We’re happy that we are a partner in this project. TIGHTINGS™ is an evolution of the tights concept, creating a highly contemporary appeal that transforming what used to be a simple accessory into a garment that can also be worn as outerwear, providing the most effective response to every woman’s needs and desires” commented Alan Garosi, Marketing Manager of Fulgar.
EMANA® is a smart polyamide yarn containing far infrared technology (FIR) which uses body heat to detox the skin.
Using the minerals stored in the fibres, EMANA® absorbs the warmth of the human body and returns it to the skin in the form of far infrared rays, thus stimulating cutaneous blood circulation.
A whole array of benefits are reaped from an increase in skin elasticity to a reduction in unsightly cellulite*, making the skin softer and younger-looking.
In the sports field, EMANA® helps to increase your performance levels, by accelerating muscle recovery and ensuring comfort and wellbeing.
Fulgar’s EVO® is a next-generation hi-tech yarn. It is one-of-a-kind and of 100% bio-based origin, One outstanding feature of NANOFIBRA TERJET is its unique morphological structure composed of three yarns. Its special design and superb fineness allows for loop formation; this unique characteristic gives garments a pleasant texture and velvety touch.ensuring comfort and efficiency, whilst respecting Nature.
EVO® by Fulgar is a yarn made from castor oil – not for feeding plant that grows spontaneously. A totally renewable resource that does not require high amounts of water nor subtracts arable land for food uses.
The biomass source is castor bean, Ricinus Communis. The monomers used in the polymerization are partially or completely sourced from castor oil.
One outstanding feature of NANOFIBRA TERJET is its unique morphological structure composed of three yarns. Its special design and superb fineness allows for loop formation; this unique characteristic gives garments a pleasant texture and velvety touch.
TERJET is a fibre made from three yarns with different mechanical properties. It was designed and created with a manufacturing process called BULKYFLAT AJT SYSTEM. This system allows micro loops to be created at regular intervals along the entire length of the yarn, thus obtaining its typical velvety texture.
Q-SKIN® is a polyamide 6.6 fibre in which silver ions are inserted directly during the spinning process meaning that it limits bacterial growth preventing body odour. Q-SKIN® takes care of the skin, providing its wearer with breathability, freshness, hygiene and comfort.
During normal daily routine or sports activities, our body produces sweat; Q-SKIN® technology kicks in when the sweat molecules come into contact with the fibre: the silver ions inside help to reduce excess floral bacteria which is the main cause of unpleasant odours.
Q-SKIN® fibre retains its basic properties over time even after repeated washing.
Proven bacteriostatic effectiveness as certified by the MIS PLUS Institute of Zürich according to DIN ISO 20743 standards: 10-2007.
Stands up to repeated washing as certified by the MIS PLUS Institute of Zürich according to JIS L 1902/02 standards.
