Originally, clothes have been created to protect the Man from adverse external elements, at PYRATES, we have observed that fashion hasn’t adapted to the evolution of these elements. Professional and medical clothing has improved but everyday clothing is still at a basic stage. Pollution, global warming, new diseases and their consequences on our health are part of our present and our future. “Punctual cures” and protections have been created such as sunscreen and medicines however these elements are constantly present so we need to constantly fight them. No matter a person’s views on fashion, we will always have an intimate relationship with textiles, as we wear them most of the time, close to the body, making them a perfect support.
PYRATES’ vision is to be a pioneer in the evolution of fashion, thanks to its own revolutionary, certified smart fabrics turned into timeless, fashionable and functional garments to finally make everyday clothing adapted to our environment. We are absolutely conscious of the direction the fashion world is taking. Tomorrow’s clothing will not just cover the flesh, it will be casual sportswear, adapted to a dynamic lifestyle, functional with additional health and cosmetic benefits. We are moving from fabrics to super fabrics, from fibers to super fibers. PYRATES aims to be at the forefront of this revolution, a swiss fashion brand recognized for its innovation capacity and a reference in the global sportswear market.
