WL Gore & Associates continues to expand the possibilities and applications of functional fabrics based on its own unique development - the GORE-TEX® membrane. In the 2010 fashion season, the company's area of interest is casual clothing for modern city dwellers. The innovative technologies embodied in the new line of GORE-TEX® Urban Generation laminates optimally meet the needs of the fashion industry and allow designers to offer their audience light, breathable and functional models.
In the spring of 2010, four new two-layer GORE-TEX® Performance Shell laminates will hit the market for urban fashion:
York. These fabrics are distinguished by their special softness and light weight; in contrast to their harder counterparts, they are pleasant to the touch and practically do not rustle. Laminates repel water and at the same time fully "breathe", eliminating the "sauna effect". Moreover, the manufacturer has significantly improved the parameters of the air permeability of the laminates, creating the optimal material for sewing comfortable and functional clothing for city dwellers.
It is expected that the new fabrics will be in demand, first of all, in the production of outerwear for men of all ages. The proposed color solutions meet the needs of the male audience. For the 2010 season, WL Gore & Associates will present laminates in classic colors: gray, dark blue, contrasting white and black combined with shades of green and khaki, as well as natural shades of brown with noble white and iridescent petrol sheen.
The GORE-TEX® range of fabrics for the new season includes both classic structured polyester and gabardine options, as well as ultra-light polyamide fabrics with a stylish glossy effect.
