Lectra Launches Kaledo® V3

Paris-based Lectra, an integrated technology solutions provider serving the fashion and soft goods industries, has introduced an updated version of its Kaledo fashion-specific design software. The Kaledo® V3 textile design suite for creating prints, knits and wovens allows designers the flexibility to experiment across fabrics while balancing business objectives and production constraints.

"Consumers are less convinced by price alone — today they crave something new and something they can value," said Anastasia Charbin, marketing director, Fashion, Lectra. "Demand has intensified for original designs and high quality, which means that fashion companies now face the double challenge of producing rapidly and meeting consumer desires for something unique. Designers need a professional tool that allows them to turn inefficiency into design time."

Lectra's Kaledo® V3 textile design software gives designers more flexibility to experiment across fabrics.

Kaledo V3 features enhanced yarn shading options that give designers control over individual colors in any given yarn and enables development of highly realistic yarn and fabric simulations. The software offers a more structured method of sharing and saving information as well as enhanced technical report creation owing to new features that update fabric specifications automatically, thereby eliminating accuracy issues, Lectra reports.

"Design and innovation are the essential ways companies can stand out from the competition today," said Daniel Harari, CEO, Lectra. "The newest version of Kaledo meets the absolutely fundamental need for fast time to market and product quality, while at the same time elevating design to its proper place as a strategic force for brand success."
