Stoll, leader in flat knitting technology, unveils its latest trend collection FASTER: From (CONCEPT) – To (STORE), which is driven by the motto of its Fashion & Technology department ‘Design to Inspire’.
The knitting tech supplier motivates the fashion industry to copy details and integrate them to their design work, focusing on style groups and price points.
The company mentions that though the industry works on protecting themselves from being copied, Stoll Fashion & Technology sees being copied as a reward.
“Our collections are naturally very small compared to commercial collections, as we do not sell them. Instead of increasing the amount of styles, we rather enrich the content of every single piece with many technical and design features. That is why Stoll samples are typically content-rich,” mentions the company.
The data for this design is available on patternshop.stoll.com that can be used by companies to redesign Stoll samples.
The companies will be able to get access on data that would help them in re-designing this collection and also understand how design decisions relate not only to aesthetics, but also knitting.
With FASTER: From (CONCEPT) – To (STORE), the company aims to demonstrate how quick and easy it is to turn its concept designs into simplified products.
The highlight of the development process is sustainability as it reduces the number of material-intense iterations, lowering costs and waste. Moreover, the use of Stoll knitelligence tools allows faster on-demand production and can thus replace slower bulk production.
