Spinnova Fibre and Ka Wa Key Presented Their Collection in New York Catwalk
The fibre maker from Finland and the designer from London Ka Wa Key presented a capsule collection at New York Fashion Week. The brand’s gender-neutral new line was designed from Spinnova sustainable materials and fabrics. And Ka Wa Key’s casualwear and knitwear pay tribute to the designer’s Asian roots and Scandinavian heritage. The collection will also be shown in Paris in October, but the items will not be available to purchase.
The designers with the same ambition strive to make fashion more sustainable. And they showed that sustainable materials have no limits: whether it was painting on the textile, dyeing, adding digital prints, or knitting.
The capsule includes knitwear as well as woven styles that are genderfluid. The color palette was inspired by its homeland- Finland. Spinnova fibre is made from wood or waste (leather, textile, or food remains) and produced without harmful chemicals. In addition, the brand uses technology, and as a result, 99% less water is used.
The brand has recently collaborated with Adidas, The North Face, H&M, and other clothing and apparel brands. By partnering with the leading companies and presenting the materials in runaways, the brand hopes the textile industry will become more eco-friendly one day.
