Humanity 4.0

AW 22.23 – Humanity 4.0 | Collection

Nowadays it's understood we need to keep close with the world besides our homes and ourselves, celebrating Humanity in one of its most elemental forms: the ability to connect.

Physical, emotional or even technological connections give meaning to life, varying from simple to complex, from tangible to intangible; existing between human beings or between us and our natural or digital surroundings.Without making notice, Humanity can be in anything, anywhere, informing our every other decision, the ultimate inspiration to our eco-conscious developments to be present in the most different styles and looks across the fashion industry.

Humanity 4.0 | AW 22.23 Themes

We believe in reconnecting with nature to regenerate the planet and humanity, using a multidisciplinary approach, where science and technology meet nature, and where synthetic biology meets design.

CIRCULARITY


Minimizing the negative impact of industrial textile production implies global commitment and collective action. 
We are actively involved with our partner Valérius 360 in making the shift to a circular economy paradigm.


Turning waste into new products allows a reduction of primary resources’ use by at least 50%; a decrease, during the transformation process, of chemicals consumption by 98,5%, of water by 85% and energy by 83%; as well as a cutback in the total amount of textile material discarded in landfills.

REGENERATION


Due to its ecological production and biodegradability, alternative artificial fibres are on the uprising, being created with cellulosic materials extracted from textile waste, such as Circulose®, from vegetal sources, seaweed or fish scales, such as Lyocell Bamboo, Seacell or Beauty Fiber.


These regenerated raw materials ensure natural breathability, moisture management, anti-bacteria, softness on the epidermis and extra wellness functionalities.

ENGINEEERED COLOUR

Traditional ways of dyeing fabrics are unbearable for the planet, as they are the most polluting and energy-intensive processes involved in making our clothes.


Constant technologic advances allow that more precise and unique ways of low impact colour-making start to emerge - such as RECYCROM’s dyestuffs created from textile waste or Colorifix's dyeing through microorganisms. These are fully working alternatives for less water and toxic material consumption in the fashion industry.

WELLBEING

Fabric performances can be enhanced through the use of natural fibres or bio-ingredients with unique capabilities.


Recyclable and organically degradable biosynthetic and biofunctional treatments, such as Peppermint Oil, EVO® by Fulgar or miDori® Biosoft, also produce high-performance hybrid jersey fabrics.
