Protective wool, dominant black and splashes of
Winter 2010/11 focuses on familiar, authentic values that offer a sense
of security. Wool in various forms and combinations hangs softly, feels
wonderful and provides functional protection. Black makes a strong
showing and experiments with exciting materials. Shiny, metallic fabrics
and fruity or pastel hues add contrasting touches and lift the spirits.
In a world where we do not know what is next, there is a growing desire
for authenticity, high quality classics and a sense of security.
Therefore, natural materials therefore dominate in Winter 2010/11
above all wool, with its comforting warmth and security. In the classic
colors of red and black, the bi-elastic, moss-structured wool crepes
feel dry to the touch but form soft, protective wrappings. For example,
-WB-400-soft-shell fashioned into softly hanging jackets
with wide raglan sleeves in a retro look or as the somewhat more sporty
-shape variation with herringbone and c_change
membrane, which provides protection against wind and weather while
remaining deliciously soft.
Traditional woolen fabrics are also making a comeback in compact loden
styles. Soft and fleecy, they feel wonderful and hang beautifully.
Available in brown, green and grey natural tones; they always remain
utterly functional, for example as schoeller
-shape fabrics with
in a m
lange of tones or as schoeller
-WB-400 with new
bi-elastic wool and the familiar soft-shell comfort. The chic trench
coat is, as ever, a perennial favorite. The high quality finish of the
two-tone Karo raincoat is typical of the diagonal weave stretch
-shape wool mix with c_change
, complete with matte, yet shiny
effects on dark anthracite or black.
Black dominates the winter and mutates with a bit of color.
Predominantly enlivened by distinctive reliefs and always combined with
a variety of exciting materials. The three dimensional woven structure
gives a matte, velvety effect, achieved by embossing the
jacket fabric. In contrast, the embossed printing on the impregnated
cotton-polyester blend with coldblack
finish looks and feels like
leather. The dark, iridescent metallic tones of the matelass
with its quilted appearance and c_change
technology, provide a discreet
shine. Black Lurex thread with the c_change
finish lends a high quality
sheen to the matte black cloqu
, always creating a showy, new look.
Denim satisfies the need for reliability and casualness in both its
genuineness and its look. Available for neat, dark jeans in a diagonal
weave stretch schoeller
-shape cotton-polyamide blend with a pleasantly
finish or with an unobtrusive, distressed-effect with
glossy coating in black on black or with a Lurex silver effect on dark
grey denim giving new life and structure to an old classic.
The matt, stretch cotton-satins simply ooze softness and warmth with
their comfortable silicone finish in burnt caramel tones. The navy blue
Mackintosh version in a bonded, diagonal weave stretch schoeller
satin is wind and waterproof and feels lovely inside thanks to its
fleecy black lining. Other satins play a double role in brown-orange or
navy-black color combinations.
These fascinating, eye-catching pieces with the new, two-ply c_change
membrane are more than a match for any downpour. One option is
-styltec with a glossy honeycomb look in fruity pink, light
beige or stone grey. Also available in a matte, muted schoeller
Ripstop in delicate lilac or beige; or with semi-transparent, fine
crinkle structure in black or white. The extremely air-permeable climate
fabric offers reliable wind and weather protection
with excellent breathability. Equally cheerful in its reliable
waterproofing is the transparent, shimmering Ripstop polyamide fabric in
light pink or stone grey.
Metallic tones are enjoying a confident revival and promise to lend new
sparkle to the future. Vital and fresh, the many colors of the latest
-spirit metallic interpretations bring life and movement to a
somewhat reserved world. For example, with a new pink metal thread, a
softly hanging crinkle-used look, the gleam of deep gold hues or the
brightness of trendy lime tones.
The bonded schoeller
-spirit metallic fabric has a rather more intimate
and reserved interplay with the light. With its matte, papery look and
muted grey and brown tones, it almost has a Japanese feel to it. The
smooth, soft satin in warm metallic tones has a gentle silvery sheen,
while the flamboyant schoeller
-spirit with silver Lurex threads and
reverse coating shimmers in shoes, bags or inserts, catching the eye
with its multi-facetted metallic angles. In addition, and not to be
overlooked, is the new three-dimensional, reflective Retro-Glow fabric
with its embossed woven structure.
