YOOX NET-A-PORTER and The Prince's Foundation come together for the second edition of the partnership supporting future generations of artisans.
Combining sartorial know-how and digital research, 8 young Italian and British talents have created a collection that reimagines luxury in a sustainable and modern way.
Made by hand
Nature, sustainability and tailoring tradition: The Modern Artisan takes the form of thirteen exclusive pieces, crafted entirely by hand. Almost all of the garments use pure fibres to facilitate recycling and were created in collaboration with Carbonsink to minimise, calculate and compensate the carbon footprint of each item.
Craftsmanship meets sustainability
The collection of women’s clothing is inspired by details and colours at Highgrove Gardens, chosen as the location for the collection’s photoshoot, featuring striking shades of green and natural elements.
ABOUT THE PRINCE'S FOUNDATION
The chief objective of The Prince's Foundation is to create sustainable communities. The charity aims to achieve this by developing and managing places to visit, running a diverse programme of education and training for all ages with particular focus on traditional and heritage skills, and offering employment, most notably at its headquarters at Dumfries House in Ayrshire, Highgrove Gardens in Gloucestershire, and at three sites in London.
