We are in the middle of the summer season but for the apparel industry and stores, the work has started on the coming Autumn/Winter season to get us fashionable and protected against the cold weather.
After we have posted first images from the new Oâ€™Neill Jacket collection, we have another new member in the Wearable Electronic and iPod fashion market:
Toronto-based Levelwear is preparing the launch of their new 3-in-1 waterproof / windproof / breathable ski coat using Eleksenâ€™s â€˜Made for iPodâ€™ system.
â€œWhen we saw this (ElekTex) technology at ISPO, we knew that it was something we wanted to use,â€ says Jeff Church, sales manager at Levelwear.
A seam-sealed interior pocket called the â€˜iPod garageâ€™ stores the iPod and connects it to the control panel located on the sleeve.
The touch controls have the usual function of the Eleksen system like play/pause, control volume, skip tunes, on/off. The keypad can be locked to avoid accidental activation e.g. you or someone touches the control panel area on your sleeve.
The jacket is made from durable rip-stop nylon, with a premium removable micro-fleece interior jacket. The three-in-one design incorporates the luxury fleece, which is part of Levelwearâ€™s heritage.
Levelwear is a leading supplier of high quality , athletic inspired apparel with a focus on unique and luxurious fabrics.
The Jackets will be available coming November in two colors (Black and Navy) for both men and women, the Cascade Series will have a price tag of under US$ 300.- a very reasonable price for this multi usable and functional high quality Jacket.
We will keep you updated about more product details, availability and where to buy.
