Spring-Summer 24 doubles down on its commitment to a more virtuous fashion industry. Eco-design encourages us to rethink the design process. From its very development, we take into account the end of life, or a new product life cycle. The resistance of materials is verified by numerous tests to ensure their durability. Compositions are adapted to ensure recyclability, aiming for single-material products, or the use of detachable components. Innovation is moving into the field of biodegradability, with new developments intended to optimize a product’s capacity to decompose.
Beyond product design, the most important pillar is environmental management. Transformation processes are scrutinized to ensure full compliance with environmental performance standards.
The precautionary principle commits companies to monitoring their chemical substances, from the moment they enter the factory to verifying any traces of them on finished products.
Given the considerable impact of the dyeing and finishing stages, water use and treatment are scrutinized to ensure maximum efficiency.
To help implement low-carbon strategies, manufacturers are turning to renewable energies and opting for low-energy processes and machines.
R&D is also experimenting with the recovery of waste, to convert it into new sources of energy, material resources, or colorings.
From the company to the product, a determined and optimistic outlook provides the necessary impetus to establish continuous improvement and build a desirable outlook.
