Stoll: faster from concept to shop
Jörg Hartmann, Head of Fashion and Technology Stoll, and his team developed a new collection with many ideas to copy or as inspiration.
Jörg Hartmann, Head of Fashion and Technology Stoll:
Our collections are naturally very small compared to commercial collections, as we do not sell them. Instead of increasing the amount of styles, we rather enrich the content of every single piece with many technical and design features. That is why Stoll piece are typically contentrich.
Every single item is like a Wikipedia for design and technical solutions and allows for a wide array of reinterpretation.
In practice, one can read as many ideas out of a single piece as needed to create an entire knitwear collection. As proof of concept, we have illustrated how one can easily redesign Stoll samples from patternshop.stoll.com to create completely new pieces. From a technical point of view they represent blueprints, as the programs and knitting technology already exist. This makes the design and development process much easier, and thus faster.
You will see how design decisions relate not only to aesthetics, but also knitting times. As the product development process starts from preexisting technical and design solutions, this collection is also about sustainability.
The number of materialintense iterations can be reduced, lowering costs and waste. Beyond that, the rations can be reduced, lowering costs and waste. Beyond that, the Stoll knitelligence tools allow for faster ondemand production and thus can replace slower bulk production.
With Faster: From(Concept) – to (Store) we have demonstrated how quick and easy it is to turn our concept designs into simplified products and extract details across gauges, graphics and shapes products and extract details across gauges, graphics and shapes at lower price points.
An inspiration for faster prototyping!
