Cosmopolitan – the new art of living and dressing

The special cosmopolitan collection from Schoeller Textil AG is comprised of multifunctional materials so that modern, mobile world citizens everywhere feel comfortable, are perfectly protected and underlines individual personality through individual styles.

With the new cosmopolitan collection, Schoeller Textil AG has recognized the signs of the times. People have an innate desire for natural looking and feeling textiles that are in direct contrast to the urban architecture. Cosmopolitan offers textiles with excellent comfort and mobility, which allows global citizens to move seamlessly and naturally through life. This sort of multifunctionality–a combination of first-class style and high performance – makes the cosmopolite independent of time, weather conditions and trends.

Timeless yet modern

The newest collection from Schoeller Textil AG is created with modern life in mind. The palette of textures, colors and attributes of Cosmopolitan have been specially selected so designers all over the world can create livable apparel for today and tomorrow. All the fabrics have been tested under extreme conditions, such as harsh alpine enivrements as well as on city streets by commuters making their way through all kinds of weather. These textiles are ideal for everyday life, which, let’s face it, can be very challenging.

All of the textiles in Cosmopolitan are chosen with longevity in mind. Examples include washable wools, durable stretch and ultra-light fabrics, and those with discreet structures that won’t pill and also retain their shape. With attractive designs and unique optics, cosmopolitan textiles are appropriate in any setting and can adapt with the wearer for comfort in the active and ever changing life of a modern urbanite.

 High performance clothing for multifaceted living

Due to many years of proven market success, Schoeller has incorporated exceptional performance attributes to the collection. Schoeller ecorepel® provides sustainable water and dirt repellence, 3XDRY® assists with moisture management, coldblack® protects from UV rays, and the c_change® membrane provides wind and water proofness. Warming and cooling fabrics are possible thanks to phase change materials and natural odor management is possible with wool fabrics and active>silver™. Such possibilities for individualized apparel is a compliment to the architecture and design of the global urban landscape while honoring the instinctive desire for comfortable, functional fabrics.

Sustainable style of Swiss origin

Schoeller is proud to be a bluesign® system partner, and as such, the cosmopolitan collection is anchored in sustainability. All production at our mill in Sevelen, Switzerland is completed with a conscious responsibility for the health of people and the planet. Renewable materials such as wool and cork are featured throughout the collection. All added finishings are as ecological as possible without compromising performance. Sustainable style means confidence and allows one to move seamlessly through life independent of time, climate and trends.
