Porsche Design RawTec Blazer receives the red dot 'best of the best' award

Hanover Design Centre honours Porsche Design Fashion

The Porsche Design P’1140 RawTec Blazer has been awarded the international red dot product design award for 2012. The unique leather blazer earned the accolade of “red dot: best of the best” for its superlative design quality in the “Fashion, Lifestyle and Accessories” category. All in all, around 1,800 companies from 58 countries entered this year’s red dot award competition with more than 4,500 submissions.

“Puristic and timeless, that’s the maxim of Porsche Design - and our fashion collection is the ultimate embodiment of this,” says Dr. Juergen Gessler, CEO of the Porsche Design Group. “Using full-grained lamb’s leather, which is coated on the inside, the RawTec Blazer is created entirely without lining. As a result, it not only looks unique, but it also offers maximum comfort for the wearer. Since the Porsche Design luxury brand was founded in 1972, we have received over 140 national and international design awards. We are particularly delighted about the latest addition to our collection, since it confirms that we are definitely on the right path with our as yet fledgling fashion collection.”

The key feature of the Porsche Design P’1140 RawTec Blazer is its premium-quality and unusual finish, created by craftsmen, that insists on tremendous value right down to the tiniest detail in line with the true concept of craftsmanship, and makes sure there is no doubling of any material: the leather is laid end to end, sewn with a zig-zag seam and then welded with a tape. This produces a unique lightness and a particularly purist look. The RawTec Blazers for men and women are therefore particularly ideal for the summer months, thanks to their truly outstanding wearing comfort.
