papi Introduces Space Dye Hanging Range

by The Underwear Expert

Papi debuts a new collection of vintage-inspired underwear that features interwoven yarns of mixed colors. Just in time for the upcoming spring season, the Papi Space Dye Hanging range, which consists of a Brazilian trunk ($24) and tank top ($30), will hit stores early March.

Heather grey served as the inspiration for the Space Dye Hanging collection, which comes in three bright shades of red, blue and purple. The brand, in turn, found a yarn that not only offers the same appearance as heather grey but also could be made with bright colors.

The new collection is made from a fabric blend of 95% cotton and 5% spandex. The fabric underwent a unique “space dying” technique that produces the collection’s muted shades with flecks of color, according to the brand. For the Space Dye Hanging collection, Papi wanted to offer consumers softly muted shades rather than the vibrant colors typically offered in other collections.

The Space Dye Hanging range’s combination of cotton and spandex provides the right amount of comfort and fit. What’s more, the addition of spandex to cotton ensures that the garment will retain its shape. Cotton has a tendency to wrinkle while spandex is commonly used in non-iron items like your underwear, according to the brand.

What also makes the Space Dye Hanging range a standout is the sexy contour pouch, which offers a flattering silhouette.
