The world’s first designer incontinence lingerie collection strutted out in style at NZFW. Confitex, an absorbent, waterproof, pad-less washable underwear range for men and women, launched its global brand in a solo show featuring its Hi-Life collection. The textile-based technology is a three-layered system developed by New Zealanders Dr Mark Davey and Frantisek Riha-Scott. It took three years of research and development to create the range that actually looks like real underwear.
“Our consumers refuse to live in a padded world. Why on earth should they? Not everyone wants to feel ‘protected’. We’ve developed these products for people who love style and design and who want the clothes they’re wearing to express who they are,” said Dr Davey.
