Lectra unveils new version of fashion-specific design solution

Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials—textiles, leather, industrial fabrics and composite materials —, is pleased to announce the availability of the new version of Kaledo® V2R1.

Kaledo enables creative teams to benefit from the latest advances in design technology, both for textile and fashion. Kaledo brings design, product development, marketing and management teams together—helping them to collaborate harmoniously when developing trends and collections.

Kaledo includes modules to create highly realistic simulations of prints, weaves and knits, and to develop variations in just a few mouse clicks.

Kaledo functions on a platform specially devised to meet the specific needs of fashion companies. Its range of tools enables designers to increase productivity while facilitating the exchange of ideas, visuals and data between teams.

“Fashion companies today really have to evolve, as the market has changed. They are under enormous pressure to produce attractive, original styles at reasonable prices, and to do so faster and more frequently than before,” explained Daniel Harari, Lectra CEO. “The result of more than 30 years in technological design solutions and our collaboration with some of the biggest names in fashion, Kaledo is an unprecedented step forward which will allow our customers to reach previously unequalled levels of productivity.

Our objective is not only to support them as they face their current challenges, but also to help them prepare for the end of the economic crisis so that they emerge with an edge over their competitors.”

Designers are now expected to produce profitable and technically feasible collections more frequently, while at the same time displaying more creativity. To meet this challenge, they must not only be able to count on powerful tools but also on the know-how of other professionals within the company.

Close collaboration involves more specialists early on in the process and enables designers to create collections that are more coherent and better adapted to the demands of the market—an absolute must in the current economic climate.

“Even those involved in creative activities are now being put under pressure to show more productivity. With Kaledo, fashion companies can develop new models and collections using existing elements, capitalizing, season after season, on their creative assets while taking new trends into account.

They can thus respond to a request for designs or modifications in just a few hours, all the while ensuring the quality of their styles and limiting their costs,” added Anastasia Charbin, Head of Lectra's design solutions.

New-version Kaledo is quickly becoming the industry standard.
“After a careful and detailed validation process, Sonae Distribuição chose Lectra's design solutions at the end of June 2009. Using Kaledo, we expect to observe significant improvements in all our processes that center on design.
