Schoeller, a Swiss producer of highly functional fabrics and textile technologies, featured ecorepel, the fluorocarbon-free water and dirt-repelling finishing technology in the 2015 summer collection.

The collection is made in earthy, warm shades or refreshing colours of the sea set accents, while various graphic punch patterns lend structure.

Eco repel

Ecology, sustainability and naturalness are the major themes for Schoeller Summer 2015. Ecorepel was recommended in the recently published Greenpeace study as a positive alternative to textile finishes containing fluorocarbons.

High abrasion resistant, biodegradable and wash resistant, this ecological high-tech finish enhances various schoeller -WB-400 qualities, such as light summer soft shells with embossed dots in petrol and subtle orange or supersoft cotton blend fabrics.

Cotton trend

Warm shades of green, brown, beige and yellow, as well as the shades of the sky and the sea, dominated in the collection, where naturalness played a major role.

Authentic cotton looks with ecorepel  work beautifully on the golf course or out on the town, the company believes. The emerald green, bi-elastic schoeller -shape pants quality is perfectly colour coordinated with the sporty-elegant, very fine double face in the same green with vibrant red reverse.

Cool fabrics

‘Real cool’ is how Schoeller refers to its new Cool Fabrics. Schoeller juicy lemon yellow dryskin fabrics with additional coldblack warmth and UV protection, as well as 3XDRY feelgood technology, are designed to keep the wearer pleasantly cool on warm days or during sporting activities.

A few examples of Cool Fabrics with outstanding ventilation and a cool touch are the light schoeller -WB-400 doubleface in petrol/beige or beige/white or a smooth, crosswise-elastic schoeller -shape fabric in sophisticated navy blue.

Prints and impressions

At Schoeller, surprise effects are now being produced with prints. Whether in existing designs such as a cracking, melting sheet of ice or the customer’s own artwork, Schoeller offers light schoeller -dynamics, pliant schoeller -dryskin soft-shells or schoeller- prestige fabrics that can be printed.

Cuts and structures

Various laser cuts have a technical appeal with a variety of graphic patterns. Some examples are a schoeller- WB-400 doubleface in matt khaki/beige, as shiny, aluminium-coated schoeller-spirit in mint green or as a light schoeller-dynamic version in vivid turquoise or lemon. Inspiration for experimental ideas is also offered by unusual schoeller-spirit spacer fabrics in loud colours and the ecological ecorepel technology.
