Supreme Corporation just announced a new collaboration with Volt Smart Yarns to produce a new kind of material. Together, the two teamed also with JRC Reflex for a specialty smart yarn to create a new innovation for fashion and technology.
"Supreme Corporation's partnership with JRC REFLEX truly combines best-in-class reflective and conductive patented technologies to deliver a smart yarn that is pushing the capabilities of fashion and technology," Matt Kolmes, CEO of Supreme Corporation, said in a press release. "We are incredibly proud that the debut of our reflective VOLT Smart Yarns has helped lead the conversation about the future of fashion and technology at Première Vision Paris. Supreme Corporation and JRC REFLEX continue to develop and advance high quality products that reflect its shared vision for the future of wearable technology and result in better experiences for users of wearable technology and sport textiles."
The new reflective seat yarn was unveiled at Première Vision Paris, the leading exhibition that showcases innovators of fashion. This year, Volt Smart Yarns was able to debut the new product in the Wearable Lab section of the exhibition. As the technological space of the exhibition, the lab showed off the yarn with a polyamide code that is covered with a coating of reflective glass microbes. This allows for the yarn to be conducive for smart textiles as well as sportswear.
