Stoll is giving designers and manufacturers a sneak preview of its latest Trend Collection. Stoll’s new Trend Collection, FASTER: From(CONCEPT) – To(STORE), is driven by the motto of its Fashion & Technology department – Design to Inspire.
“Discover how to easily redesign Stoll samples from www.patternshop.stoll.com to create completely new pieces. Take advantage of the faster, easier design and development process,” the company said in a short statement introducing the new collection today.
“Stoll samples are typically content-rich: every single item is like a Wikipedia for design and technical solutions, which allows for a wide array of re-interpretation. In practice, one can read as many ideas out of a single piece as needed to create an entire knitwear collection,” Stoll says.
“As proof of concept, we have illustrated how one can adapt the patternshop styles according to their needs, style groups and price points.”
“The number of material-intense iterations can be reduced, lowering costs and waste; Beyond that, the Stoll knitelligence tools allow for faster on-demand production and thus can replace slower bulk production.”
“Welcome to FASTER: From(CONCEPT)–To(STORE)! Be inspired for faster prototyping.”Stoll AG & Co.
