UYN Second Life Program

UYN Second Life Program

Giving our leftover textiles a new purpose

Turning waste into resources
In the era of fast fashion and endless consumerism, the impact of textile waste on the environment is becoming a global concern. An estimated 92 million tonnes of textiles waste is created globally each year. If we do not take action now, the situation will dramatically get worse.
For this reason, we at UYN have committed to the ‘Second Life’ project: reusing pre-consumer textile waste from our manufacturing to create new products.

When you use waste fabrics, originally produced for a different purpose, you are presented with many challenges. The creative process is turned upside down. You cannot make the design first and then look for materials, but you have to figure out how you can reuse the materials you already have.
This creative process is carried out by our team of designers and pattern makers in our laboratories in Asola (Italy). Their mission is to imagine a second life for fabrics: collect, clean, cut and sew them together. The result is a handcrafted, fine and exclusive product, different from all others because the starting materials are different.

Repurposed textiles

Where our textile leftovers come from
We use textiles from our own production chain to make Second Life products. In particular, when we create UYN outerwear, there is a surplus of unused fabrics and accessory parts (such as zips and buttons) left over. Instead of discarding them, we valorise and turn them into new products.

On Friday, June 3, at the UYN Store in KaDeWe, Berlin, the “UYN for BUGATTI” line was officially presented.
This high-performance apparel and footwear collection is the result of the partnership between the two leading brands in their respective fields of functional apparel and automotive engineering and design.

Within the prestigious venue of KaDeWe – the iconic department store in Berlin – on Friday, June 3, UYN (Unleash Your Nature) and Bugatti officially unveiled the first “UYN for BUGATTI” apparel and footwear collection – the result of the new partnership between the two brands.

As Bugatti is a symbol of innovation and craftsmanship in the automotive world, UYN represents the pinnacle of technology in the sportswear sphere. The products of the Italian brand are used by Olympic champions and ultra-athletes in every discipline, from skiing to cycling. Thanks to their decades of experience, UYN’s engineers have succeeded in translating the extreme beauty and performance of Bugatti hyper sports cars into a line of the highest quality, truly modern and innovative apparel.

The “UYN for BUGATTI” collection aims to redefine man’s relationship with clothing in day-to-day life through timeless garments that combine dynamic style with superior performance in terms of freedom of movement, breathability, fit and temperature regulation., Italy).


“Every product that bears the famous Bugatti macaron is reflecting the facets of our beautiful marque. The new “UYN for BUGATTI” collection combines high-performance garments and cutting-edge design to meet the luxurious feel of comfort our customers expect. In the same way that our hyper sports cars seamlessly integrate technology, the products of our new collaboration with UYN achieve the same.”uccess of UYN”.


“The launch of the first “UYN for BUGATTI” collection fills us with pride and marks an important milestone in the history of our brand. Cars are a great passion of mine and I have always admired Bugatti for its unique heritage, craftsmanship and engineering excellence. The marque’s modern hyper sports cars encompass luxury, comfort and performance and these values are the same that inspire UYN products. I’m truly excited to partner with Bugatti because I am convinced that we will translate the same extraordinary combination of comfort and performance into the field of clothing. UYN’s dedication to research and testing sets our company apart in this regard.”


The garments in the collection are engineered in Italy by AREAS (Academy for Research and Engineering in Apparel and Sport) – the research and development centre of UYN, in ongoing collaboration with Bugatti. The partnership has led to the selection of intelligent yarns and the development of revolutionary shapes according to the principle that design follows function.

Bugatti’s legendary C-Line design element has been reinterpreted by UYN through cutting-edge textile technologies. In clothing, the curved shape of the C-Line has been transformed into the special Ergomotion® shoulder design for maximum freedom of movement. In the shoes, the C-Line highlights the highly breathable areas of the upper section, creating a combination of comfort, performance and style that is the hallmark of the entire collection.

The colours blue, white, black and red dominate the “UYN for BUGATTI” line, reflecting the identity of the Molsheim-based company and paying homage to its glorious racing heritage. Tricolour French flag-inspired stripes add a discreet sporty touch to the entire collection.


The apparel line includes ten models, starting with the classic cotton t-shirt redesigned into a high-performance garment. The UYN for BUGATTI shirt features Ergomotion® technology for a natural range of motion, while the sleeves are made using the 3D knit Haloflex technique that guarantees superior elasticity and breathability. Ergomotion® and Haloflex technologies also define functionality and style in the UYN for BUGATTI polo shirts – in both short and long sleeve versions. The collar with integrated BIFLOW ventilation system is a refined performance element for urban adventures.

The technical mid layer with full-length zip, high neck and soft fleece lining is designed to provide the right level of warmth in the cooler months and transitional seasons. For windy days, the ultra-lightweight and compact “UYN for BUGATTI” Wind Jacket and Wind Vest are the ready-to-wear staples. From the experience of UYN in the world of high-performance outdoor apparel comes the “UYN for BUGATTI” Rain Jacket: a sophisticated jacket made of waterproof (10,000 mm water column) and windproof fabric, full of functional details, such as the Flowtunnels ventilation system integrated into the underarm. This jacket, ideal for casual outings, achieves the perfect balance of protection and breathability, providing maximum comfort in any situation.

The “UYN for BUGATTI” Padded Jacket and Padded Vest complete the outfit with their innovative mix of materials. The elegantly quilted structure is combined with sleeves and shoulders made of 3D knit fabric and Haloflex technology. The result is extraordinary freedom of movement and perfect management of body temperature, enhanced by a unique style.


UYN for BUGATTI” shoes are a new take on traditional sneakers. Flowing design, advanced functionality and plant-based materials come together to create a new walking experience. The collection includes the SPEED and PACE shoes. The first style features a 3D knit one-piece upper with patented Air Dual® ventilation system. Special protections at the toe, heel and sides increase abrasion resistance as well as giving the SPEED shoes a dynamic and bold style.  

The PACE model is engineered entirely from the sock according to a production technique exclusive to UYN. Ultra-elastic, slip-on and seamless, the PACE shoe wraps around the foot in outstanding comfort and adapts naturally to its anatomy. The highly breathable C-Zones on the sides, inspired by Bugatti C-Line, promote foot ventilation and help maintain the ideal micro-climate inside the shoe.

The “UYN for BUGATTI” shoes are made using the high-performance bio-fibre Natex, derived from castor oil seeds. Compared to petroleum-based materials, this eco-sustainable yarn is 25% lighter, dries 50% faster and has a natural bacteriostatic effect that minimises odours. The shoes come out with the new Horseshoe sole featuring a shock-absorbing EVA midsole and high-grip rubber tread. The U-shaped design, inspired by the legendary Bugatti radiator grill, provides greater stability and traction on all terrain.

After the official presentation in Berlin, the “UYN for BUGATTI” collection will be available in all UYN Stores and on the official website

The Italian brand continues to grow: a new shop for its high-performance products opened in Germany's most famous shopping centre

UYN® – Unleash Your Nature continues its global growth project. After opening five flagship shops in the last year (Asola, Milan, Brescia, Salò and San Ginesio), the Italian brand has taken another important step in its distribution strategy by opening its first store in Germany.
The new UYN Store officially opened on Saturday 26th March in Berlin, inside the prestigious KaDeWe shopping centre.

Customers can discover the shoe collection and the running, fitness and outdoor lines of UYN, supported by a qualified staff ready to explain the new technologies developed by the brand and the sustainability processes implemented in the production centre of Asola (Mantova, Italy).

With 60,000 square metres of retail space, the Kaufhaus des Westens, “KaDeWe” for short, is the most famous shopping centre in Germany and one of the largest on the European continent. Since 1907, it has been the privileged gateway to the German capital for high fashion and the finest products. Within KaDeWe, UYN offers its innovative combination of technology, nature and style that is revolutionising the high-performance sportswear sector.

The words of CEO Marco Redini
“Germany represents our first market. The opening of the first UYN Store in Berlin consolidates our presence in the German area and contributes to growing the brand’s image, which is already perceived by our customers as synonymous with high quality, reliability and innovation. Since its launch in 2018, UYN has continued in its extraordinary growth process, which has recently led us to open new flagship stores, inaugurate a new subsidiary in the United States and expand our online and offline distribution network worldwide. The goal is to continue to fuel this growth through new collaborations with partner shops that believe in our products and the success of UYN”.

Another step, another success: in Brescia the 5th UYN Flagship Store

Another step, another success: in Brescia the 5th UYN Flagship Store

In less than a year the 5th UYN flagship store has been opened. An elegant and contemporary space located in the Elnòs shopping center in Brescia where you can touch the technology and sustainability of the brand of Asola (MN).

A place to meet the UYN identity

Constant growth
The store in Brescia marks a further step towards the realization of a distribution strategy based on a direct relationship with the customer. Giving the opportunity to know the UYN galaxy through direct contact with the materials is central to share with the public the identity of the brand and its values.

Trerè even greener with innovative roof that reduces pollution

Trerè even greener with innovative roof that reduces pollution

The Italian company has equipped its logistics hub in Asola (Mantua, Italy) with an innovative roofing membrane that captures and contributes to eliminate part of the polluting substances in the air.

Adopting an effective Green Strategy means choosing sustainable solutions in all areas that involve a company: from the choice of materials to the production chain, up to ordinary and extraordinary management. And it is precisely in this last aspect that Treré Innovation has decided to add a further brick to its strategy. During the maintenance work carried out in its logistics hub, the company decided to use a special NOₓ-Active membrane that according to European HQE (High Environmental Quality) criteria is effective in cleaning the air from Nitrogen Oxides (NOₓ), polluting substances whose main sources of emissions are road transport, industry, and the energy production sector.

Laboratories of major national centers such as the French National Research Council (CNRS) and National Research Council (CNR) have demonstrated that the NOₓ-Active membrane contains elements with photocatalysis depolluting properties able to capture NOₓ and under the effect of sunlight decompose it into by-products that are then eliminated by rainwater runoff.

The choice of using this innovative roofing membrane goes in the direction of the ambitious goal from Trerè Innovation of creating a zero-impact production site where energy production is already 100% sustainable and where the entire amount of textile waste is already recovered. The results communicated by the manufacturer state that over a year, 10,00 m2 of NOₓ-Active roofing is capable of neutralizing the same amount of pollution generated by 10 diesel vehicles traveling 20,000 km per year or 31 gasoline vehicles traveling 20,000 km per year.

UYN EXCELERATION awarded with the prestigious Red Dot Award 2021

Our new UYN EXCELERATION running line has won the Red Dot Award, one of the most prestigious design prizes in the world, for its ability to meet the needs of modern runners with advanced technical specifications.

The Jury’s verdict

“Thanks to a refined system for thermoregulation, UYN EXCELERATION meets the expectations demanding athletes have of modern running clothing.”
The prize was awarded by an independent jury of 50 international experts who declared UYN EXCELERATION the winner in the Product Design category. For us at UYN this is yet another recognition of the quality of our products, which in the last three years have won over 20 international awards: each of them is a testament to the work and commitment of the brand in terms of research and design.

EXCELERATION – More speed, more comfort

Starting from the know-how developed in the field of high-performance underwear dedicated to winter sports, we have launched a completely new line of running apparel designed for the coldest time of the year. EXCELERATION is characterized by high thermoregulation, cold insulation and maximum freedom of movement: everything you need to support the best performance of the runner.

The line is available for men and women with long sleeves, crew neck and zippered versions. There are also three lines of pants designed specifically for the different needs of runners: long pants, pants with windproof inserts and 2in1 pants with shorts in the men’s version and a skirt in the women’s version.

Thanks for visiting Didier!


As fast as he can be, even the legendary Didier Cuche sometimes... stops! The Swiss alpine skiing legend stopped by our Headquarters in Asola (Mantova). The perfect opportunity to discover the production processes that lead to the birth of technical underwear worn by the best national ski teams and by Didier Cuche himself.

The phenomenon of Le Pâquier, winner of the World Cup in Val d’Isere and holder of the record of victories on the legendary Streif of Kitzbühel (six successes, no one like him!), was able to discover a preview of the new collections in our showroom; he knew the entire production process, from design to the creation of prototypes up to large-scale production; he visited the Research Center and the new Flagship Store of UYN.

We at UYN are very proud to collaborate with champions of Didier’s caliber who, with their class and their unparalleled experience, allow us to develop products that are increasingly performing and responsive to the needs of athletes.

Bugatti and UYN announce an exclusive collection


BUGATTI and UYN (Unleash Your Nature) – leading brands in their respective fields of automotive engineering and functional apparel – join forces in an exclusive collection to create the "UYN for BUGATTI" line: a collection designed to set new performance standards in apparel and footwear.

For 112 years BUGATTI has been creating automotive masterpieces that embody cutting-edge engineering, design and craftsmanship. Bugatti hyper sports cars are synonymous with unrivalled performance and absolute luxury.

For over 25 years, the Italian company, owned by Trerè Innovation s.r.l., has sought one objective: develop and produce the best high-tech sports apparel in the world, providing athletes and leisure sportspeople with an extra edge. UYN’s desire for excellence is defined by its dedication to technology, extensive research into advanced materials, focus on design and passion for its own products. This makes UYN the perfect partner for Bugatti to expand its brand lifestyle section new state-of-the-art products.

UYN provides wearers with a harmonious connection to nature with the use of special natural fibers, allowing for complete freedom of movement and lightness. An entirely new athletic experience is made possible with intelligent yarns and seamless technologies, responding to every movement and protecting the skin to create the perfect environment for the body during athletic activity.


The “UYN for BUGATTI” collection initially includes eleven pieces of clothing (jackets, mid-layers, polo shirts and technical shirts) plus two styles of shoes and will be expanded in the coming months. Each product is made in Italy, at the headquarters of UYN in Asola (Mantua Province) and is the result of close collaboration between BUGATTI and AREAS (Academy for Research and Engineering in Apparel and Sport), the highly advanced research, development and testing center of UYN. The partnership has led to unprecedented combinations of materials – selected for their breathability, drying speed, softness and elasticity as well as the development of ergonomic shapes.


A key source of inspiration is the iconic Bugatti C-line, which UYN has reinterpreted in jackets and shirts through its patented Ergomotion technology®. The special C-shaped shoulder design that follows the shoulder blade profile guarantees complete freedom of movement. In the shoes made of 3D-knit fabric with zero seams, the C-line has been integrated into the upper half, becoming a powerful ventilation system. The “UYN for BUGATTI” collection reflects Bugatti’s identity also in the choice of colors (black, white and the famous Bugatti Blue) paying homage to the Molsheim-based company’s racing heritage.

Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti, says “At Bugatti, we never stop pushing boundaries in all areas of our brand. Leading the way and setting new standards is part of our nature, which is why we are delighted to have partnered with UYN to launch the new “UYN for BUGATTI” collection. The seamless integration of technology and luxury materials into the new clothing line is synonymous with the way we craft our automotive icons. I’m very much looking forward to experiencing the products for myself, and I have no doubt many Bugatti enthusiasts are, too.”

“We are proud to have the chance to start this exciting journey together” says UYN CEO, Marco Redini. “Bugatti is a universally recognized icon of excellence and quality, but what struck me particularly is the extraordinary combination of performance with comfort. Bugatti’s hyper sports cars are not comparable to any other vehicle, not only in terms of speed and power, but also for their truly astonishing driving comfort. This philosophy is the same that underlies every UYN product, and we wanted to bring this to its highest expression in the “UYN for BUGATTI collection””.

The “UYN for BUGATTI” collection will be officially unveiled in Autumn and will be available online and in selected stores.
