Yesterday we blogged about some inspiring natural wash developments and today, more news has emerged surrounding technological Laser advances from Italian denim brand, Replay, who has released a special limited edition Capsule collection named “Laser Wash”.
As we’ve been reporting lately, laser technology and ozone washing is developing and creating more sophisticated finishes to emulate traditional indigo wash-downs, but without the vast water consumption and impact on the environment. In addition to zero environmental impact, the Laser Wash is able to guarantee significant energy savings, while looking pretty convincingly vintage. The jean comes in two finishes, pictures above left and the other images above show laser finishes from Tavex, Jeanologia and U-Ni-Ty.
Spanish finishing plant, Jeanologia are at the forefront of laser technology and teamed up with Francois Girbaud for last season’s Denim by Premiere Vision and Magic, Las Vegas shows, showcasing the breadth and quality of wash results possible with the laser and ozone technology. Its an exciting time for technological and environmental advances and we feel this corner of the market is only going to become stronger and more important. Watch this space!
