Created in partnership with two revolutionary European start-ups – fabric engineering lab Byborre and Nylstar, a premium sustainability yarn producer – the collaborative process was one of trial and error, and a “BIG labor of love”. True magic was achieved in leveraging the technical properties of high-performance activewear to create modern daywear, with texture and volume worthy of runway pieces. The final result is a “smart fabric” containing the optimum amount of malleability and stretch. Each product was produced from at least 86% Meryl® Skinlife Force, a soft, breathable and highly absorbent innovative yarn technology, whose inherent properties guarantee maximum freshness without the need for frequent washing, thus reducing overall water consumption and extending the garment’s lifecycle.

A reflection of AZ Factory’s core values, and in typical Alber Elbaz fashion, each piece also features the signature AZFactory chain zipper, which allows quick, easy and autonomous dressing, a nod to independent women everywhere.
