Innovation is part of our DNA.
Each year, new products generate more than 30 percent of our sales.
We've accomplished this by listening to consumers and anticipating their desires and needs.
Our HUE® brand was a trend leader in leggings in 2010, which followed the introduction of the first novelty-based eco sleepwear (HUEtopia) in 2009. Also, last year we created a sports sock made from 95 percent recycled materials.
In 2008 we developed a patented crisscross ankle-support sock technology.
We pioneered body shaping with our No nonsense Great Shapes®. And in 2000 we invented the Foot Tube as we grew the "shoe solutions" category.
In 1985 we broke new ground with Calvin Klein® designer sheer. In 1979 we were the first to merchandise opaque tights in an open package.
Since 1970, when we introduced the first control top pantyhose, we have earned a reputation for innovative ideas.
