Autumn 2012 will see Thermore in the spotlight for responsible fashion, creativity and innovation, without harming the environment.
The first new item will be by Zegna Sport that introduces use of Thermore TMK in its items on the A/W 12-13 collection, such as the Monochrome Plus ski windbreaker jacket in nylon with LED lights; the Urban Camouflage reversible shirt-jacket in quilted nylon and the Techno Graphite jacket, also quilted and reversible, made of Technowool and Light Shell nylon.
All the quilting used for label clothing distributed via Ermenegildo Zegna stores worldwide, is made using Thermore TMK: this is Thermore's flag product, made up of 50% recycled post-consumer polyester, in full compliance with Thermore's strict technical standards.
Geox, on the other hand, chooses to rely on Thermore Rinnova – the sole thermal insulation made by 100% post-consumer recycled polyester - providing retailers with its A/W 12-13 Performing Concept Collection. All these garments are high performance, windbreaking, waterproof, and have "cutting-edge, ultra light-weight technological thermal insulation, designed to withstand intensive use and guarantee high insulation power, keeping the body at its natural heat and making the garment as soft as a feather."
It is important to remember the environmental quality of Thermore TMK and Rinnova, guaranteed by the Textile Exchange's GRS (Global Recycle Standard) certification. The GRS requirements are applied to the entire production chain and the traceability and origin of the plastic is monitored, guaranteeing that they are post-consumer waste. It also evaluates the environmental and social impact of the recycling process and lays down precise standards for labelling.
Among Thermore's partners there is no lack of casual wear companies, including Dondup, a men's and women's fashion brand from of the Marches. Dondup's philosophy centres on the value of skilled craftsmanship and "Made in Italy" and so for a number of years it has chosen Thermore as its partner for its autumn/winter collections. "In terms of our modern DNA and quest for excellence in every product," says the CEO Massimo Berloni, "we work with only the finest suppliers, in order to guarantee the quality of the finished garment".
