three design innovations five light and thermal technological advances, redefining the light down jacket

in recent years, the light down jacket, featuring “thinness warmth”, has quickly taken the lion’s share in the spring, autumn and winter wear market. however, as the demand for fashion has kept rising, traditional down coat gradually exposes its achilles’ heel—its design, for many years, falls short of variation and innovation due to its monotonous fine quilting technology. and worse still, its basic designs are too rigid to fit in different occasions, failing to meet the customers’ diversified aesthetic needs. to remedy this drawback, some of the light down jackets on market resort to less fill power, thus undermining their thermal performance. taking all into consideration, bosideng believes it is imperative to "revolutionize" the thin down jacket again.

innovation 1: integration with other classic fashion categories

to break the monotony of traditional thin and light down jacket designs, bosideng integrates classic fashion categories such as hoodie and knitting with down innovation to achieve unity of chicness and function.

hoodies enjoy an elaborate category of variations in fashion evolution history. they can be traced back to the middle ages, but they budded in modern fashion world only in the 1920s. seventy years later, the 1990s witnessed its soaring popularity, which they had sustained till this day. in order to better integrate the hoodie design with down fill power, so as to marry comfort, fashion and thermal performance, bosideng, finally adopted an ultra-light scuba knitting fabric after testing more than 60 options. the present delivery is further boosted by an innovative multi-layer insulation technology to ensure softness, breathability and ultra lightness and warmth.

the bosideng design team was also inspired by knitting, a classic and practical thermal clothing category. in order to achieve the seamless joining of the knitted fabric and down, bosideng has painstakingly tried more than 200 types of yarn and finally settled on doris yarn, which is dubbed as "diamond velvet" in the textile industry. through the "seamless weaving technology", bosideng introduced more fabrics into the down jacket industry, enriching customers’ options of down jacket to fit in different occasions. 

innovation 2: innovative stitching techniques of joining different fabrics

paddy-sewing technique is also an important breakthrough for bosideng to redefine the down jackets. drawing upon the ancient stitching technique of "paddy field clothes" in the tang dynasty, the design team fused the essence of chinese fashion into the down jacket, and combined a variety of fabrics with different touches and functions with traditional down fabrics.

due to the difference in shrinkage rate, color fastness and extension between various materials, traditional sewing techniques often fail to achieve a satisfactory visual effect. to address the problem, bosideng has tried hundreds of times, and finally broke through various technical difficulties and enriched the choice of fabrics for designers. the final products delivered can meet the multi-requirements of ultra lightness, thermal performance and fashionable style for a down jacket.

innovation 3: artistic quilting design

to add variety to the traditional "horizontal and vertical lines" stitching designs of down coats, bosideng introduced the artistic quilting designs, featuring abstract geometric patterns. quilting designs originated in marseille, france, and was popular in aristocratic circles. now it had become a common symbol of fashion on the t-stage. the density and arrangement of the quilting lines also affect the thermal performance of the down jackets. the more regular the quilting lines and the denser the stitches, the warmer are the down jackets.

on the basis of the ancient quilting technology, bosideng had experimented with hundreds of layout schemes to find out the most appropriate lines patterns of optimal visual effects. the down quilting lines are interwoven to create a 3d effect, presenting a light and fashionable visual effect, elevating the aesthetic experience of the customers, while fulfilling all the promises to functionality.

the breakthrough in design was further boosted by the successful infusion in the final products of the "five light-warm technology", namely thermal insulation tech on multi-layer scuba knitting fabric, ultra-light fabric for next-to-skin wear, international certified high-quality goose down, professional german needle anti-leakage sewing technique and intelligent coldproof processing. with so many problems overcome, bosideng had definitely redefined the light down jacket.

bosideng’s latest delivery has by far broken the traditional designs and represented the avant-garde technology in the category of down wear. its “redefined version of ultralight down jacket” has won the golden novum design award of france, commonly hailed as one of the top ten design & innovation awards. the award, screens more than 1,000 designs worldwide each year, for the most breathtaking artistic creations around the world. the gold medal speaks to the design capacity and international impact of bosideng.
