Schoeller Fabric Collection Summer 2016 - Impressive looks and cool wool
At Milano Unica I had the opportunity to see the "Innovative Fabrics by Schoeller Switzerland" and learn about the fashion trends in fabrics for Summer 2016.
The borders between outdoor and fashion are becoming increasingly blurred.
Embossed structures on supple soft-shells, and jeans prints on functional cotton fabrics, provide a new look. Cool fabrics keep summer wool jerseys pleasantly cool in Summer 2016, and washable summer wool jerseys upgrade light jacket qualities. The crux: The wear feels comfortable and always looks good.
Various structures allow the pleasantly soft, bonded schoeller®-WB-400 summer soft-shells to make a completely new statement. Embossed as an oval red honeycomb structure on smooth outer fabric, or as an irregular, greenish wood-bark look or in a neoprene look with grass-green squares for trims and inserts; these stretch fabrics impress not only with their attractive design but also with their breathability, extreme durability, water and dirt repelling properties and ease of care.
Inspiration for experimental hybrid ideas is also offered by unusual schoeller®-spirit spacer fabrics in vibrant colours and different three-dimensional looks, which make an exciting impact as inserts or lining. The schoeller®-spirit-neon ripstop in shades of yellow, green or blue radiates transparent lightness and the cable pattern on the schoeller®-shape cotton fabrics in plain colours, or with irregular One of a kind dyeing, produces a fascinating new interpretation of a Chanel look.
'Cool down', even when things heat up in summer 2016: With the new Cool Fabrics from Schoeller, which feel tangibly cooler and protect the wearer from overheating. The functional micro-coating on the reverse of the Cool Fabrics actively balances out body temperature, thus generating a pleasantly cool comfort-climate which, in turn, positively affects performance capacity. To be found, for example, on sporty-elegant schoeller®-dryskin double fabrics, light bonded schoeller®-WB-400 summer softshells with diverse backings, bi-elastic schoeller®-shape golf pants weight cotton fabrics or sophisticated jacket qualities with silk and especially fine schoeller®-spirit down qualities.
Sportswear is becoming more fashionable and function is relentlessly making its way into the world of fashion. Urbane multifunctionality is the magic term, seen here in combination with sophisticated, washable summer wool. The light, highly-breathable schoeller®-WB-400 soft-shells with soft wool jersey backing and smooth outer side in colours like full-bodied petrol or aubergine offer sufficient protection in a light summer shower, when trekking or on the piazza. As do the light schoeller®-naturetec wool blend fabrics with additional functions, in vibrant shades of blue, green or red. Here the addition of NanoSphere® technology or the fluorocarbon-free ecorepel® lends permanent, reliable water and dirt repellence.
Exciting new looks are also created by various jeans prints on water repellent, bi-elastic schoeller®-naturetec cotton-polyamide qualities for jackets and pants. On the dark jeans colouring, the print produces a stylish used-leather look. The washed-out denim print in shades or green or blue creates an 'Aquatic Camouflage' without negatively impacting the environment through an elaborate washing-out process. Perfectly matched to the commuter bike trend are the two schoeller®-shape jacket fabrics with c_changeTM climate membrane. Either in a natural denim look with colour-contrasting lining in vibrant yellow, blue or green or as a linen-polyester blend with a classic glen check design.
