TRANOÏ Paris Lifestyle

The October 2016 edition of TRANOÏ Paris: Women’s (Sept 30 – Oct 3, 2016) will present for the first time TRANOÏ Paris: Lifestyle, a new family within the show created in response to the growing demand from buyers of prominent, international department and concept stores.

TRANOÏ Paris: Lifestyle will host an exclusive selection of brands presenting the best lifestyle objects, watches, furniture, lounge/homewear, hi-tech and gadgets to our lucrative influential buyers and press, at their new and vibrant venue Cité de la Mode et du Design.

Although this particular show is NOT all about fashion, the event will have some fashion accessory brands such as Peech (pictured below).
PEECH for TRANOÏ Paris Lifestyle
PEECH is born from a compilation of ideas coordinated by one creative mind, Amedeo Piccione's, who, despite his young age, has given voice to his own personal "fashion game", a collection of fashion jewellery  and small leather goods in which Piccione reveals himself through enigmatic symbols.

Rings, earrings and bracelets enhance the femininity of the wearer in an ironic way. The jewellery is gold plated in a way that makes them desirable at first sight. Soft nappa for clutches and purses, bracelets and key chains enriched elements "irreverent", puns but also of meaningful phrases.

NGRAIN Smart Glasses

Eyewear can be functional as well as fashionable.  Although clothing is our primary focus, glasses are clearly a fashion accessory.  Therefore, it is important for fashionistas and the apparel industry to pay attention to new technologies relevant to wearable technology such as new eyewear opportunities.

NGRAIN announced the availability of NGRAIN Viewer for Android, a new app for Android tablets and smart glass devices, enabling the deployment of industrial 3D content created with NGRAIN Producer Pro. 
NGRAIN Smart Glasses
NGRAIN Viewer for Android offers organizations working with heavy equipment, assemblies, and other industrial assets in the field, the opportunity to easily explore possible use cases for smart glasses and 3D content without the need to invest in the development of a mobile 3D app. NGRAIN is further making Viewer for Android open source, offering R&D teams and developers an excellent starting point to customize and create their own industrial applications.

With NGRAIN Viewer for Android, NGRAIN provides the source code to bootstrap a 3D app for Android, load 3D content, view animations, play step-by-step tasks, and interact with content from NGRAIN Producer Pro. Developers can then quickly develop a customized 3D industrial app for Android by modifying and extending the NGRAIN source code. Using NGRAIN Producer Pro, organizations can rapidly create 3D content for these custom apps without the need for expertise in 3D graphics, custom scripting, or further programming.

“Smart glasses are creating opportunities for businesses to connect their employees in the field with access to the right information at the right time, and NGRAIN Viewer for Android, coupled with NGRAIN Producer Pro, is providing the best way for these organizations to experience this potential first-hand, enabling the creation and deployment of 3D industrial apps at a fraction of the cost and time of an outsourced, custom solution,” said Barry Po, Senior Director, Product and Business Development of NGRAIN.

NGRAIN is proud to be partnered with Epson in delivering an optimized experience for the Epson® Moverio® BT-200 and BT-300 smart eyewear. “The largest barrier to augmented reality (AR) for smart glasses is the cost of content creation, since the cost of creating step-by-step 3D models and AR content is too expensive to be practical for a lot of applications,” said Eric Mizufuka, product manager, New Ventures for Epson America. “What’s great about the NGRAIN Viewer for Android is it dramatically lowers the cost, while maintaining the quality of these high-end content experiences for AR glasses. This type of next-gen product is a critical part to helping the AR glasses ecosystem mature to mainstream adoption.”

Launching its first-generation smart glasses in 2011, Epson recently announced the Moverio BT-300, the world’s lightest binocular, transparent smart glasses with an OLED display. Combining breakthrough silicon-based OLED digital display technology, the Intel Atom processor, and Android OS 5.1, the Moverio BT-300 enables a truly transparent mobile AR experiences for organizations. The Epson Moverio BT-300 will be available in late 2016 and may be pre-ordered at Epson.com/Moverio. For a complete product overview of the Moverio BT-300, please visit the following link. 

NGRAIN Viewer for Android supports any Android device with a minimum API Level 15 (Android 4.0.3). Tools are available to convert existing 3D assets with virtually every major 3D CAD/DCC format including Inventor, CATIA, Parasolid, Pro/E, Rhino, SolidWorks, STEP, DXF, OBJ, DWH, STL, and more, for use with NGRAIN Producer Pro and the NGRAIN Viewer for Android.

The NGRAIN Viewer for Android is free for download via the NGRAIN Web site. For more information on NGRAIN and its products, please visit www.ngrain.com.

EPIC Rio Textile Ink Color Mixing System

PolyOne Wilflex™ Screen Printing Inks are more than just textile inks. Wilflex focuses on total ink-room management, providing the most efficient, cost-effective environment possible to help you win in competitive marketplaces.

Textile Screen Printers Have a New Ally: EPIC™ Rio Non-Phthalate Ink Mixing System from Wilflex.

On July 11, 2016 PolyOne announced the launch of non-phthalate Wilflex™ EPIC™ Rio, a new color mixing system for textile inks.  Based on cutting-edge pigment technology and formulated for excellent color strength, these inks are PANTONE® approved and boast an extended color range of 18 finished ink mixing components. The end results are a perfect balance of color accuracy, vibrancy and opacity for peak press performance and color design.

As the most opaque color system in the Wilflex range, EPIC Rio maintains color precision and flexibility, and can help screen printers save ink and money by achieving color on press quicker, even with fine mesh-counts. The increased opacity of EPIC Rio also offers greater processing flexibility with regard to mesh screen selection, print strokes and direct print capability, all while maintaining accuracy to Pantone color standards.

Kevin Romine, Wilflex product manager, commented, “EPIC Rio’s color matches to Pantone color standards are spot on, and they strike a perfect balance between color vibrancy and opacity. These new inks will allow textile screen printers to improve opacity and really up their game on color design because the increased color accuracy and strength add a significant ‘wow’ factor.”

The inks are creamy and smooth right out of the bucket and remain that way throughout production runs.  Press-ready EPIC Rio inks also give consistent, exceptional results for large or small runs.

Designed for ease of printing on a manual press without tiring the press operator, EPIC Rio inks are also appropriate for larger production runs with an automatic press. They perform well over a wide range of mesh sizes and press parameters, so printability for either manual or automatic textile screen-printing is outstanding.

Their distribution footprint covers 55 countries across the globe supporting their wide range of Wilflex ink chemistries.

The Wilflex brand of inks emerged in the early 1960’s as screen printing on t-shirts gained popularity for self-expression allowing the Wilflex brand to gain global recognition. Wilflex continued to make history twenty years later, when it provided design freedom allowing hundreds of color options with the introduction of the first plastisol mixing system. Another first for the textile printing industry was the introduction of automated ink dispensing equipment in the early 1990’s. The Wilflex DispenseMaster™ continues to excel in the global market by providing efficiency driven and automated solutions in today’s leading print shops. Ink room solutions now also includes IMS3.0, a cloud based software providing formula and inventory management for the entire family of PANTONE® approved Wilflex color mixing systems.
