Textiles firm Invista is expanding its portfolio of sock products and adding Lycra brandings to a number of ranges.

The company, which owns the Lycra fibre brand, said new branding possibilities included socks and knee-highs.

It will also change the name of its Lycra Energising socks to Lycra Energy socks. The first socks showing these new Lycra brandings will be in stores within the next weeks, Invista said.

Denise Sakuma, global segment director of legwear at Invista, said: "With this new branding and a new brand identity for Lycra Energy socks, Invista ensures that they are always putting its best foot forward in marketing its products within the industry."

The company will also be releasing Lycra Soft Comfort socks and Lycra Sports socks into the marketplace.
