ESMOD Workwear Collection

INVISTA's CORDURA® brand fabric, known for durability, comfort and performance, will debut original workwear designs from ESMOD Paris students at this year's Expoprotection event November 7-9, 2016 in Paris. Also on display are its latest fabric inspirations - including new denim, hi-vis and performance wool fabrics.

ESMOD + CORDURA® Brand Garments

The ESMOD + CORDURA® brand collaboration challenged students to bring a new perspective to workwear, integrating "la mode" into aspects of protective work clothing. Beginning with traditional work clothing concepts and inspiration from a broad range of CORDURA® fabric technologies, the students applied modern world fashion styling techniques to develop street savvy garment style portfolios for both men and women.  A select number of garments will be featured in the ESMOD Paris + CORDURA® brand young designer display on the CORDURA® brand stand U117.

"Driving innovation is an integral component of the CORDURA® brand ethos," said Cindy McNaull, global CORDURA® brand and marketing director. "The creative minds of young designers that help fuel this innovation are essential not only to our brand, but to our role in the industry as we develop the durable fabrics of tomorrow."

CORDURA® Brand + Lenzing TENCEL® Collaboration

Also in the spotlight will be the latest performance denim fabrics from the CORDURA® brand + Lenzing TENCEL® collaboration. New softened strength denims incorporating TENCEL® fibre are featured in the CORDURA® Denim 'Infinity' Collection part of the "Authentic Alchemie" portfolio.  Offering enhanced soft comfort properties, moisture management and sustainability benefits, the use of TENCEL® fibre helps deliver soft, lightweight and comfortable CORDURA® denims that do not compromise on durability.

According to Tricia Carey, director of global business development at Lenzing Fibers Inc., "As denim takes on modern evolution, we're able to use our denim fabrics in ways that address our lifestyle at work and in our leisure hours. CORDURA® brand brings the long-lasting durability and strength, and we help enhance it with comfort and softness."

CORDURA® HI Vis Fabrics

In addition to its line of hard wearing woven outerwear fabrics, the CORDURA® brand will also debut latest developments in its high tenacity polyester qualifying fibre range, which have helped generate an expanded portfolio of durable knit, fleece and woven laminate CORDURA® Hi Vis fabrics for the protective wear market.  This high tenacity polyester fibre range in a broad range of weights/sizes (90 to 1180 dtex) is air-jet textured for enhanced abrasion resistance and tensile and tear strength. 

CORDURA® Combat Wool FabricsTM from Marlane

Also on display, the CORDURA® brand has broken new ground with a range of "leisure-chic" fabrics for the workplace from Marlane, a division of Biella Manifatture Tessili S.R.L.  Officina Endurance by Marlane is a range of performance CORDURA® Combat WoolTM fabrics for menswear, crafted to merge fashion and function in the contemporary suiting market.  A durable wool blend technology, CORDURA® Combat WoolTM woven fabric offers enhanced abrasion resistance and longevity. From the commute to the boardroom, the Officina Endurance collection is the epitome of fashion meets function for the modern male.
