Russian brand KRAKATAU has unveiled its latest lookbook of techwear pieces, presenting a durable and functional range of outerwear, shirts, and bottoms. Keeping in line with previous collections, the brand has grounded the assortment in graphene technology, otherwise known as the “strongest material ever made.”

A slick line-up of iridescent trench coats, raincoats, packable windbreakers, and even women’s skirts are included in the minimalistic collection. The brand’s storm jacket has been infused with the graphene-based membrane, helping the style to control the wearer’s body temperature through its unique heat transmission properties.

KRAKATAU has also utilized waterproofing capabilities to add even more functionality. Details like water-resistant sealing tapes and professional-grade membranes upgrade the brand’s trench coats and short jackets, finishing off the selection with various styles that are ready to face the elements.

Elsewhere in fashion, WACKO MARIA has recently launched a capsule dedicated to the band Rage Against the Machine.

KRAKATAU GOES BEYOND For SS20 collection KRAKATAU has developed the storm jacket with graphene-based membrane. Due to its heat transmission and conductive characteristics, this membrane allows even distribution of body temperature inside the jacket. Newly developed membranes withstand up to 10,000 mm H₂O (test ISO 811: 2018), while permitting vapour up to 8000g/m²/24h (test ISO 15496: 2018), which is sufficient for professional Alpine-equipment. The collection also includes men's shirts and women's skirts welded using seamless technology. Details are laser cut with precision and aligned so that after welding they become invisible. Among the materials used in the new collection, the most distinguished are two-layer fabric creating moiré effect, iridescent reflective coating and carbon pattern print. ? Для весенней коллекции KRAKATAU разработали штормовую куртку с мембраной на основе графена. Такая мембрана, за счёт своих тепло- и токопроводящих характеристик лучше перераспределяет температуру тела по поверхности куртки. Новые мембраны KRAKATAU выдерживают до 10000 мм воды (по тесту ISO 811:2018), пропуская при этом до 8000г воздуха на квадратный метр в час (по тесту ISO 15496:2018), что является показателем, достаточным для профессионального альпинистского снаряжения. В коллекции кроме курток присутствуют мужские рубашки и женские юбки, склеенные по бесшовной технологии. Детали этих изделий с максимальной точностью вырезаны лазером и сложены встык так, что после склейки швы становятся абсолютно невидимыми. Среди ярких визульных эффектов в новой коллекции можно выделить двуслойные ткани с муаровым эффектом, ткани с поляризованным светоотражающим покрытием и карбоновые принты. krakatauwear.com #krakatauwear
