Schoeller, a pioneer in the development of functional, sturdy, hard-wearing stretch fabrics, has introduced its latest Schoeller Fabric Collection for Summer 2016 that features embossed structures on supple soft-shells, and jeans prints on functional cotton fabrics.

The range of abrasion-resistant, permanently elastic schoeller-dryskin double fabrics extends from ultra light soft shells to dense, compact versions in intensive, sporty colours or sophisticated classics. On the inner side of the jacket or pants fabrics, a functional layer is always said to ensure speedy moisture transport.

Additional abrasion protection in exposed areas is provided by the structured, elastic schoeller-dynamic rip-stops. These are perfectly matched to the light e2 check prints shirt qualities with active>silver freshness finish, the company reports.

Structured optics

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 fabrics, or as an irregular, greenish wood-bark look or in a neoprene look with grass-green squares for trims and inserts – these fabrics impress 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.

Cool Fabrics

The new Cool Fabrics from Schoeller are said to 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, generating a pleasantly cool comfort-climate which, in turn, is said to positively affect performance capacity.

Cool Fabrics are available on sporty-elegant schoeller-dryskin double fabrics, light, bonded schoeller-WB-400 summer soft-shells with diverse backings, bi-elastic schoeller-shape golf pants weight cotton fabrics or sophisticated jacket qualities with silk and especially-fine schoeller-spirit down-proof qualities.

Summer wool

Sportswear is becoming more fashionable and function is relentlessly making its way into the world of fashion. Urbane multi-functionality is 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.

The light schoeller-naturetec wool blend fabrics with additional functions, in vibrant shades of blue, green or red also offer shelter from a light season rain. Here the addition of NanoSphere technology or the fluorocarbon-free ecorepel lend permanent, reliable water and dirt repellence, the company reports.

Jeans prints

Exciting new looks are 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, according to the manufacturer.

Perfectly matched to the commuter bike trend are the two schoeller-shape jacket fabrics with c_change climate membrane.
