Calvin Klein Celebrates Defining Moments of the LGBTQIA+ Journey with #proudinmycalvins Campaign

Fashion Pride season is starting around the world. A brand that always has been representing the LGBTQIA+ community, not only during pride season but yearlong is Calvin Klein. Calvin Klein’s latest campaign is a celebration of defining moments in the queer and trans journey. A continuation of the #proudinmycalvins movement, the campaign revisits the transformative events that shaped the lives of talent from different parts of the world at different moments in time.   Six photographers captured eight cast members in pared-back, intimate settings. While each of the cast stands out for their highly individual background and rare talent, they are all united in their shared passion for – and impact on – the LGBTQIA+ community.     Watch the campaign video on our instagram.     MEET THE TALENTS AND THE PHOTOGRAPHERS OF THE CAMPAIGN:     Arca (she/her) shot by Gorka Postigo in Barcelona The nonbinary Barcelona-based artist who debuted the Arca moniker in Summer 2011 artfully blends genres across music, performance and painting.     “The first time that I gave myself permission to cruise. In that moment of connection, I felt a vitality. I felt free of a doubt…excited for what was to come.”– 2009     Honey Dijon (she/her) shot by Matt Lambert in Berlin  Artist, DJ and fashion designer Honey was born in Chicago and splits her time between New York and Berlin. Her new album Black Girl Magic will be out later this year.   “The first time in my life that someone had seen me before I saw myself...It was another trans woman that said to me, ‘You belong in a skirt.’ I realized at that moment that I could exist.” – 1990-something     Isaac Cole Powell (he/him) shot by Ryan McGinley in New York City  The American actor and singer recently starred as ‘Tony’ in the Broadway revival of West Side Story and is featured in the upcoming season of Modern Love and the Universal film adaptation of Dear Evan Hansen.   “My hand just crept down my thigh, waiting for it to brush up against him. It finally did. It was like electricity. My whole body was flashing colors. I knew there was no going back after that.”– 2010     Kai Isaiah Jamal (they/them) shot by Campbell Addy in London The spoken word poet and activist draws on their own personal experiences as a trans person of color. Their work centers on exploring, understanding, and dismantling social norms.   “I’ll never forget it. I call it my transition 2.0. Being able to step back into femininity and celebrate that glory...where once those things would have been really triggering. I felt weightless and free.”– 2020     King Princess (pronoun-fluid) shot by Collier Schorr in New York City The singer, songwriter and producer from Brooklyn, NY quickly rose to fame after her debut single in 2018. It was through her mother, who worked in fashion, where she first found her LGBTQIA+ family.   “I started to realize that I was part of this tapestry of queer people that have made really powerful, moving work. When I realized that, everything made sense.”– 2012     Omar Ayuso (he/him) shot by Gorka Postigo in Madrid The Madrid-born actor is best known for his role as Omar Shanaa on the hit television series Elite, a Spanish thriller and teen drama.    "When I told my mother…I thought she would be shocked and make some big scene. She said, ‘Ok, I'll get some tickets for The Sound of Music.’"– 2013       Raisa Flowers (she/her) shot by Ryan McGinley in New York City   A multi-hyphenate talent, the artist, model and muse, Raisa pulls from her West Indian background and queer underground club experiences to reshape how society views beauty and fashion.   “When I was in catholic school...when I first shaved my head. My principal was like, ‘We need to watch her because she’s going to be wild.’ I felt like a badass."– 2010     Samuel de Saboia (he/him) shot by Vivi Bacco in São Paulo The queer Afro-Indigenous Brazilian artist blurs the lines between art and fashion. The multimedia artist focuses on the need for advocacy and bridge building with the queer community in his home country.    "Once you go to the docks, it meant you were kind of free. I had never kissed a guy until that moment. Heart pumping, like I could barely see my chest moving."– 2015     Calvin Klein partners with multiple non-profit organizations in support of LGBTQIA+ advocacy, equality, and safety. This year, Calvin Klein is proud to announce a two-year partnership with The Trevor Project, the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning young people. In addition, Calvin Klein supports ILGA World’s work as the global voice for the LGBTQIA+ rights of those who face discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and/or sex characteristics.   The brand has also committed funds to the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund and continues, alongside parent company PVH Corp, to support the National Pulse Memorial & Museum (formerly onePULSE Foundation), the nonprofit established by the owner of the Pulse nightclub following the June 12, 2016 shooting in Orlando, Florida. This year, a register round up will be held in Calvin Klein North America retail stores. The brand’s support of the National Pulse Memorial & Museum began at the request of our company associates who wanted to celebrate the memory and legacy of their colleague, Frank Hernandez.   Earlier this year, Calvin Klein Australia announced a three-year partnership with BlaQ Aboriginal Corporation, an organization that supports the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTQIA+ community. http://www.calvinklein.nl/pride  #proudinmycalvins   Pride season is starting around the world.

IT'S ALL ABOUT SUNSCREEN

IT'S ALL ABOUT SUNSCREEN

Beauty SUNSCREEN IS TO SKINCARE WHAT SALT IS TO COOKING—WITHOUT IT, YOUR SKINCARE REGIMEN WILL ALWAYS BE LACKING SOMETHING. THAT’S BECAUSE THE SUN IS RESPONSIBLE FOR A LENGTHY LIST OF TOP SKIN CONCERNS—IT CAUSES 90% OF WRINKLES, TRIGGERS HYPERPIGMENTATION AND, WITHOUT IT, MELANOMA WOULD BE A VERY RARE DISEASE.       Despite the fact that many of us are spending time indoors, or in direct sunlight for short periods of time, it’s important to remember that sunscreen is actually a year-round, nonnegotiable necessity. Science shows wearing sunscreen everyday is the single most important thing you can do to keep your skin healthy and youthful long-term. And not only does SPF help prevent signs of aging, it also protects you from sunburn, hyperpigmentation, melasma and non-melanoma cancers.       What do those SPF numbers really mean? SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. As a general rule, the SPF figure is intended to help the wearer determine how long they can stay in the sun before they need to reapply. It doesn’t have much to do with the strength of the product per se. To work out how long your sunscreen will last, simply multiply the amount of time in minutes that it takes you to burn (without any protection) by the SPF on the bottle. For example, if you generally burn after 10 minutes of unprotected sun exposure, a product with an SPF rating of 30 will allow you to stay in the sun for five hours without burning (10 minutes X 30).  Contrary to popular belief, SPF 30 is not twice as protective as SPF 15. Here’s a breakdown of UVB protection as it relates to  SPF number:   SPF 15 = blocks 93% of UVB rays  SPF 30 = blocks 97% of UVB rays  SPF 50 = blocks 98% of UVB rays        There are 2 types of sunscreen:  Mineral Sunscreens (physical): Mineral sunscreens sit on top of the skin’s surface, acting as a physical blocker by deflecting and scattering UV rays away from the skin like tiny mirrors. Because they block UV rays at the surface level, mineral sunscreens protect against both UVA and UVB rays.  Chemical Sunscreens (organic): Chemical sunscreens are absorbed into your skin and sit in the deeper layers. They absorb UV rays and change them into heat, then release the heat from the skin. Since UV rays must penetrate the skin to reach these chemicals,          A good facial SPF product incorporates the sort of things you would expect from your moisturiser, including ingredients with anti-inflammatory and nourishing properties. Daily Face Protect SPF 50 contains peptides, grape stem cells and hyaluronic acid to nourish and restore your skin while the filters protect you. But you need to know how to apply a sunscreen correctly otherwise the is no use.    Wear on a daily base: Make the sunscreen part of your every day routine.The sun is always present,even on the rainiest days.   Apply properly: Apply a solid layer of a  sunscreen for optimal coverage apply at least 20 minutes before sun exposure.   Reapply: Every sunscreen wears off, so reapply at least every two hours. This is particularly true when sweating or swimming and with direct sun exposure.   Don’t skip it: Any sunscreen is better than no sunscreen for protecting your skin from harmful UV rays.     Get yours here: https://thegreymensskincare.com/pages/all-about-sunscreen SUNSCREEN IS TO SKINCARE WHAT SALT IS TO COOKING—WITHOUT IT, YOUR SKINCARE REGIMEN WILL ALWAYS BE LACKING SOMETHING.

The beautiful Hôtel CASAROSE

The beautiful Hôtel CASAROSE

Travel You may think that you have seen everything on the French Riviera. After all, it is one of the most popular destinations for tourists from all over the world and quite rightly the stu of legend. With palaces, charming inns, family-owned bed and breakfasts, with or without stars. CASAROSE, which is simply brimming with charm, innovations and positive energy, was conceived in line with the new trend for feel-good hotels, and combines the best of a seaside resort, a design boutique hotel and a place to live (and work)—where guests can unwind, where companies can hold their meetings, and with a trendy bar/lounge and restaurant. It also showcases local art and craftsmanship that re ects current tastes. Jean-Christophe Larose, CEO of Groupe Cardinal, wanted to create something a bit di erent, where families can unwind and play sports but also where business owners can meet with their clients. Here it’s all about the level of service, goodwill and friendliness.   There is something joyful about the CASAROSE, which loosely draws on the casual elegance of the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel on LA’s Sunset Boulevard for inspiration. Or North Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs in the 1960s perhaps, where guests lounged around the blue lagoon pool after a game of golf or tennis. Come evening, drinks would be served with music playing in the background. Over half a century later, this heady casual chic vibe still works—albeit that the vintage dream has been slightly updated.   The idea behind the CASAROSE is to blend this vintage California style with the current norms of the French hotel industry, taking inspiration from the French Riviera. Luxury? Everything has been thought of in this 21st-century four-star hotel. Here you’ll only nd unpretentious, chic and cool luxury, both inside and out. CASAROSE has all the intimacy of a boutique hotel, with just 56 rooms and suites, all with private terraces. The hotel has 32 rooms (24 m2) and 8 family rooms with an extra bed as well as 6 junior suites (33 m2) and 10 suites (36 m2). With its bar/lounge and restaurant, putting local products in the spotlight, the hotel aims to become a go-to place in the region.   Hôtel CASAROSE is located in Mandelieu-la-Napoule, which is famous for its leisure activities and natural attractions. Located on the premises of the old Golf Park Hotel, the hotel is set in a lovely landscape garden, next to the famous Golf Old Course of Cannes-Mandelieu—the region's most picturesque golf course. Just 25 minutes from Nice-Côte-d’Azur Airport, the hotel is also located on the banks of the Siagne, a wide, navigable river that ows past the garden and into the Mediterranean. The jetty will be completed in 2022. The beaches of Cannes and Mandelieu-La Napoule are just 400 metres up the road. But best of all, the region enjoys sunshine 300 days a year!   The CASAROSE team supports the local economy, sourcing directly from the region's shermen, vegetable growers, orists, and olive oil and wine producers. The hotel also intends to showcase regional talent, making the most of the thriving art scene. We will be happy to point guests in the direction of all the best sights and attractions: from Théoule and its mythical red rock inlets to the stunning golf courses, art galleries and many other experiences that are just waiting to be discovered. Guests can also rent bicycles and electric cars to get around more easily.   Explore more about the amazing hotel here: www.hotelcasarose.fr You may think that you have seen everything on the French Riviera.

The location of the Bagni di Bormio is Alta Valtellina, the only resort in the Alps with an offer of skiing and thermal water 12 months a year for a splendid holiday in the mountains. The view is enchanting and becomes an indelible memory. The territory, partly included in the Stelvio National Park, includes the Municipalities of Bormio, Livigno, Valdidentro, Valfurva, Valdisotto, Sondalo and is very rich in tourist-sporting opportunities both in winter and in summer. Bormio is a multi-sport mountain tourist resort, where you can ski all year round, in an area with 115 kilometers of slopes in winter and on the Stelvio glacier in summer and autumn. Both hotels are also bike hotels to support bikers who wish to tackle the epic ascents of the Stelvio, Gavia and Mortirolo. The dedicated staff will be able to advise guests on the MOST beautiful paths and itineraries and on tours and visits to the historic center, wineries and surrounding courtyards. The peaks of the mountains surrounding the "Magnifica Terra" offer mountaineering lovers numerous destinations of different difficulties: from the SIMPLE climbs (such as Monte Scale and Vallecetta) to those of medium difficulty (Sobretta, Cevedale, Tresero ) up to the most demanding (such as Gran Zebrù and Ortles). Rock and ice routes, for every season of the year.     For all foodies, a holiday in Valtellina is characterized by good taste: excellent Valtellina wines accompany traditional cuisine with local ingredients such as bresaola, liqueurs and Casera, Bitto and Scimudin cheeses, with which to prepare tasty snacks or tasty pizzoccheri .     Terme Bagni Vecchi     A dip in history: from the Roman Baths to the centuries-old caves that lead to one of the millenary springs, up to the panoramic outdoor swimming pool overlooking the Bormio basin. A real fortress of well-being that offers timeless emotions through an immersion in history to discover a well-being that has no age. Six sectors with different thermal paths including a panoramic outdoor swimming pool and Roman baths known since the first century BC: a relaxing, regenerating, detoxifying, invigorating and rebirth experience, in an exciting, evocative setting. Magical places, unique in the world: the Roman Baths known since the 1st century BC, the Baths of the Archduchess so called in honor of the Archduchess of Austria who used to spend summer periods at the Bagni Vecchi in Bormio, the Sweat Cave of San Martino which leads to one of the springs in the heart of the mountain, the Medieval Baths, the Imperial Baths and the panoramic pool that sweeps over the Magnifica Terra, now an infinity pool.     Terme Bagni Nuovi   The Bagni Nuovi thermal center, annexed to the Grand Hotel Bagni Nuovi in ​​Bormio, is divided into four sectors with different thermal paths. A unique reality made of aromas, lights, images and colors. A wellness program that has been profoundly renovated in recent months: starting with the refurbishment of the changing rooms, made more spacious and functional, and the massage area, many innovations have been made, all aimed at making the sensory journey even more exciting for the guests who can today immerse yourself in a world deliberately dedicated to the epic, getting lost in the games of mirrors and perfumes of the Narcissus living room, abandoning yourself to the enchantment of the Garden of Daphne and infinite relaxation in the Cave of the Nymphs, to discover a tradition of well-being that finds the pinnacle of beauty with the new infinity pool that opens onto the spa park allowing the view to sweep over the surrounding landscape.   Four sectors each for a different thermal path: we start with the Giardini di Venere with their regenerating path, we continue in the Neptune's Grotto which offers a detoxifying path, the Bagni di Giove then offer an aquatonic - revitalizing path and finally the Bagni Ercole a relaxing journey. Not to be missed are the Saturn Baths: two large rectangular pools communicating with each other with underwater music therapy and water at different temperatures with a semi-circular pool below, fed by high-intensity waterfalls. The set of basins, with the small adjacent house, made up the "Bath of the sheep" used, following a SERVITURE dating back to the 12th century, to wash the fleece of the sheep in hot thermal water before shearing. The "baitel" served as a heated changing room for the shepherd who then entered the tanks to wash the animals; the adjacent waterfalls completed the rinse. La Baita di Lucina is, on the other hand, a panoramic bio sauna, with music therapy, for a regenerating action on the skin and complete psycho-physical relaxation. Inside, the sauna is covered with an early nineteenth century "wood paneling" in pine, a typical work of the Valtellina master carpenters, and re-proposes the environment and atmosphere of the huts of what period. Note the chandelier, an authentic luster, where you hook the keys of the house and which, according to popular tradition, protected the hut from evil spirits.   Finally, for all those who wish it, the opportunity to taste the wellness lunch, now no longer a buffet but served at the tables, in the fascinating historic Salone dei Balli, one of the most fascinating and elegant rooms in the entire Alps, which has therefore become an integral part of the thermal path.     The Baths of Ancient Rome were places of well-being, pleasure, aggregation, leisure and social life in which citizens spent their free time. A lifestyle that entrusted the recovery of physical well-being and the regeneration of the spirit to water and those magnificent places, summarized in the motto salus per aquam, whose acronym SPA still indicates the places of well-being. QC Terme continues the philosophy of the SPA of Imperial Rome with its own Wellness Centers, able to offer unique and timeless emotions, moments of escape and absolute relaxation to be experienced alone or in company. QC Terme, a dream of Andrea and Saverio Quadrio Curzio born in 1982 and which today brings together nine beautiful wellness centers that make up the MOST important and innovative group in the Italian tourism-spa sector. QC Terme creates total wellness experiences for those who want to improve their quality of life. It does so through the design, construction and management of spas and wellness centers in which the philosophy of ancient Rome relives. The QC Terme centers are in Bormio (Bagni Nuovi and Bagni Vecchi), Pré Saint Didier, Milan, Turin, Rome, San Pellegrino, in the Dolomites, in Chamonix Mont Blanc and, soon, in new prestigious locations in Italy and around the world. In all QC Terme realities, the elegance of the architecture is harmoniously combined with the most modern technologies, to offer multisensory paths where you can indulge in pleasant moments of total relaxation. To extend the wellness experience and transform it into a stay, the group also manages prestigious hotels and resorts in Bormio, at the foot of Mont Blanc, in Rome and a design hotel in San Pellegrino Terme.     QC Terme Bagni di Bormio Spa Resort   Wellness, nature, history from the 1st century BC Two spas, a 5-star hotel, a 4-star hotel and a historic villa, located within walking distance of each other within the monumental park of Bagni di Bormio, give emotions with a retro flavor. An Alpine SPA characterized by the uniqueness of being able to benefit from a naturally hot thermal water (37-43 ° C) known and appreciated for over 2,000 years that flows from different sources in the Stelvio National Park and which still allows you to use baths today secular Romans.

Synonymous with the most sophisticated Italian style, ACQUA DI PARMA today is a leading player in the international luxury landscape, a Maison that draws on tradition to reinterpret it, while innovating and evolving, exactly like FILA.     Modernity, ease, dynamism, and a love for the vibrancy of the sun and open-air landscapes drenched in golden rays de ne both FILA and ACQUA DI PARMA, purveyors of a luminous Italian lifestyle. The collaboration happens en plein air, in the Mediterranean, and takes the shape of 1,100 numbered, limited-edition sets, presented in ACQUA DI PARMA’s signature sunny yellow and marked with vertical stripes in FILA’s iconic red and navy hues. Inside, the two worlds are merged together as Blu Mediterraneo Arancia di Capri meets a terry-lined tyvek windbreaker, a replica of FILA’s iconic Aqua style from 1976, where a dash of turquoise and white was added to the blue that was signature for sailing, becoming a sportswear staple for boating. The journey begins by immersing in the scent and putting on the jacket, into the sunniest Italian fantasy, charging ahead with the feeling of being alive in a boost of energy and positivity.

LOEWE PRESENTS A COOL WEAVES COLLECTION LAUNCHED IN COLLABORATION WITH SOTHEBY’S

Design ‘Craft is one of my main interests: one that I’ve made central to LOEWE’s identity. This year, to reinforce our commitment to craft, we are collaborating with Sotheby’s auction house on our LOEWE Weaves project: a collection of unique, artisan crafted objects including artist-embellished Galician chestnut roasters, woven leather bags, baskets and accessories.   LOEWE Weaves explores the act of weaving as both a decorative craft and a way to build structure. The main protagonist in the collection is the Chestnut roaster from Galicia: a handmade clay pot in which multiple holes are punched. The holes are functional, but the texture they create is an ideal playground for different weaving techniques.   As for the accessories, LOEWE Weaves extends the idea of weaving to nely crafted leather and raf a accessories rich in artisanal details: bags, bracelets, but also woven and knotted vases.   Sotheby’s are exhibiting a selection of seven artist-embellished chestnut roasters featuring experimental weaving techniques by artists Arko (Japan), Min Chen (China) and Laia Arqueros (Spain). The handmade pots, created by master potter Antonio Pereira and reinterpreted by these three artists, will be displayed alongside the exceptional pieces of Sotheby’s marquee May auctions of Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary Art in New York. The exhibition will open on May 1st with some of the most remarkable works of art from the 20th and 21st century that Sotheby’s will be auctioning on May 12th, when the exhibition will close.   The exhibited pieces will be sold at a xed price on Sotheby’s Buy Now online marketplace, starting on May 1st – which makes LOEWE the rst major luxury fashion house to exclusively consign with the platform. We will be fully involved in the process, with the roasters featured in the catalogue. It’s all very engaging, and another way to pay tribute to the superb craft of our unique pieces.   In addition to these pieces, we gave 84 chestnut roasters to artisans Idoia Cuesta and Belen Martinez from Spain and to artisans in LOEWE’s own ateliers for them to experiment with. Holes have been braided or passed through with strips of fabrics, ribbons, rope, leather strings, wool threads, feathers, straw. The roaster’s surface has been left untouched, glazed or painted. The functionality of these objects has been twisted and turned, becoming abstract as discarded materials have gained new life. The result is quite striking. Many of the materials embellishing the roasters are, in fact, surplus from past LOEWE collections. Authentic craft, for me, is sustainable. These roasters will be exhibited and available for sale in the LOEWE stores worldwide.     #LOEWE #LOEWEprojects ‘Craft is one of my main interests: one that I’ve made central to LOEWE’s identity.

Zalando brings the fashion industry and consumers together to close the gap between attitudes and behaviors around sustainable fashion

Zalando brings the fashion industry and consumers together to close the gap between attitudes and behaviors around sustainable fashion

Sustainability Zalando publishes report with insights and recommendations to bridge the gap between what consumers say they want to do in terms of sustainability and what they actually do when buying fashion. To make it easier to make sustainable choices, Zalando is launching a new shopping experience that allows customers to search for what is important to them Zalando continues to invest in Pre-owned and also makes the offer available in Austria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy and Sweden.     Zalando, Europe's leading online fashion and lifestyle platform, today publishes the report, "It Takes Two: How the Industry and Consumers Can Close the Sustainability Attitude-Behavior Gap in Fashion." The report examines the difference between what people say they want to do and what they actually do. It shows that many customers find it difficult to apply their personal sustainability values ​​when buying clothes. The report contains clear recommendations on how to solve this problem by working together. In response to the findings and recommendations, Zalando is launching a new shopping experience that allows customers to browse the more sustainable range in a way that reflects the values ​​they pursue. In addition, Zalando continues to invest in Pre-owned and gives customers in seven new markets the opportunity to buy and trade in second-hand fashion themselves, after it has already been successfully launched in Belgium and the Netherlands, among others.     Based on consumer research conducted in five European countries *, the report states that the fashion industry must make sustainable choices more attractive, realistic and accessible. At the same time, consumers should give more priority to sustainability in their fashion choices, just as they do in other areas of their lives.     David Schneider, Co-CEO at Zalando, says: “We aim to have 25% of our gross trade volume (GMV) in more sustainable products by 2023. During the corona crisis, customers let us know that sustainable shopping has become more important than ever to them. However, when we asked them what they thought of sustainable fashion, the association “guilty” came to the fore. The feeling that came up the least was “fun”. If the fashion industry takes sustainability seriously, we need to resolve this dissonance around sustainability now to build a stronger future for fashion. ”     The “It Takes Two” report lists ten recommendations that can help fashion companies close the gap between attitude and behavior. The report identifies three priorities that need to be addressed quickly. First of all, the fashion industry must gain confidence with simple and convincing communication. Second, behavior change must be promoted. Finally, attention must be paid to circularity with solutions to close the chain.     Kate Heiny, Director Sustainability at Zalando, explains: “Our customers say that sustainability is very important to them, but they find it difficult to put these values ​​into action when they go shopping or online shopping. As a platform, our job is to empower ourselves, our brands and our customers to make more sustainable choices, inspire them to take joint action and drive lasting change. That's why we prepared this report, from which we can all learn: Zalando, the fashion industry and consumers. This report concluded that if we really want to close the gap between attitude and behavior that has existed in fashion for a long time, collaboration is the only solution. We will have to do it together; the fashion industry and our consumers. ”     Zalando wants to lead by example and has already implemented one of the report's recommendations: "Speak about sustainability in a way that everyone can understand." The recommendation is based on the finding that one in two customers does not understand what sustainability means in the context of fashion. Thanks to a new feature in the Zalando shop, customers can now browse the range based on the values ​​they consider important, such as water conservation, employee well-being, reuse of materials, animal welfare, limiting CO2 emissions and extending lifespan of fashion items. In 2018, Zalando already started labeling products with a "sustainability flag", such as items made with more sustainable materials or production methods. Today, this sustainable range already includes more than 80,000 items from more than 500 brands. With the launch of this new shopping experience, Zalando is taking it a step further in its drive to give consumers a better understanding of sustainable fashion, enabling them to make more informed choices.     This is a subject that is very important to us and we are happy to be sharing this with our readers.     Read more about it on their website: https://corporate.zalando.com/en/attitude-behavior-gap-report#foreword Zalando publishes report with insights and recommendations to bridge the gap between what consumers say they want to do in terms of sustainability and what they actually do when buying fashion. To make it easier to make sustainable choices, Zalando is launching a new shopping experience that allows customers to search for what is important to them Zalando continues to invest in Pre-owned and also makes the offer available in Austria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy and Sweden.     Zalando, Europe's leading online fashion and lifestyle platform, today publishes the report, "It Takes Two: How the Industry and Consumers Can Close the Sustainability Attitude-Behavior Gap in Fashion."

That's why we prepared this report, from which we can all learn: Zalando, the fashion industry and consumers. This report concluded that if we really want to close the gap between attitude and behavior that has existed in fashion for a long time, collaboration is the only solution. We will have to do it together; the fashion industry and our consumers. ”     Zalando wants to lead by example and has already implemented one of the report's recommendations: "Speak about sustainability in a way that everyone can understand." The recommendation is based on the finding that one in two customers does not understand what sustainability means in the context of fashion. Thanks to a new feature in the Zalando shop, customers can now browse the range based on the values ​​they consider important, such as water conservation, employee well-being, reuse of materials, animal welfare, limiting CO2 emissions and extending lifespan of fashion items. In 2018, Zalando already started labeling products with a "sustainability flag", such as items made with more sustainable materials or production methods. Today, this sustainable range already includes more than 80,000 items from more than 500 brands. With the launch of this new shopping experience, Zalando is taking it a step further in its drive to give consumers a better understanding of sustainable fashion, enabling them to make more informed choices.     This is a subject that is very important to us and we are happy to be sharing this with our readers.     Read more about it on their website: https://corporate.zalando.com/en/attitude-behavior-gap-report#foreword
