THE GREEN SOUL OF ZEGNA

THE GREEN SOUL OF ZEGNA

Fashion A SUSTAINABLE ETHOS HAS LED US SINCE OUR INCEPTION. RESPONSIBILITY TOWARDS PEOPLE, COMMUNITY AND TERRITORY HAS BEEN AT OUR CORE SINCE 1910. ENSURING THE HIGHEST QUALITY WITHOUT COMPROMISING THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS IS OUR LEGACY. GIVING BACK IS OUR PATH. PASSION IS OUR MOTIVATION FOR PRESERVATION. IN LOVE WITH NATURE FOR 110 YEARS, AT ZEGNA WE CONTINUE TO TAKE CARE OF THE WORLD WE LIVE IN.     At Zegna, we have taken care of the world we live in from the beginning, following in the footsteps of our founder Ermenegildo Zegna. This is our company mission, based on a constantly-evolving thought: looking at the future with the belief that our actions today will shape our tomorrow. At Zegna, social and environmental responsibility have been our roots for 110 years. When we were founded in 1910, Ermenegildo Zegna’s dream was not just to create the world’s finest textiles but to make his hometown and the world around it a better place, ensuring the highest-quality products without compromising the quality of life for future generations. His vision is still the heart of everything we do. The environment is at the core of our efforts: we believe the very best garments can only come from the best natural resources, and that these resources need to be cared for. The advanced vertical integrated of our business model facilitates our journey towards a sustainable product and holds us accountable for responsible practices and processes.      2020 marks our 110th anniversary. On this landmark year we are proud to renew our sustainability pledge, exemplified by OASI Zegna, where our Lanificio Zegna was established and our green philosophy was ignited. OASI Zegna is a unique model of our environmental consciousness, a territory that now covers 100km2 from Trivero to Valle Cervo in the Alpi Biellesi, that would not have been possible without the visionary approach of our founder.      As a living example of the company’s sustainable philosophy, Zegna is partnering with Green Pea to create a new shop-in-shop at the world’s first Green Retail Park in Turin, showcasing us as one of the most sustainable fashion luxury brands. Based on a true respect for earth and nature, Green Pea shares our company’s conscious mindset. With a 200m2space, the Zegna shop features an exclusive selection of our most iconic products, including the #UseTheExisting project, representing our commitment to sustainability. Launched with the Ermenegildo Zegna XXX F/W2019 collection, #UseTheExisting embodies our pledge to use more and more natural and technical fabrics developed with innovative processes from pre-existing and post-consumer sources with the aim to make the dream of zero waste possible. It’s a vision that perfectly complements Green Pea’s mission to feature high-quality products created using materials that are in harmony with nature. It’s an authentic vision requiring an individual commitment to meet a collective purpose.       “In an ever-changing world, luxury companies can simply adapt to changes or choose to be a positive force in driving these changes. Our responsibility is to leverage our past to build a better present and future. This carries over into everything we do, following our founder’s legacy. I’m very pleased that Zegna is part of the Green Pea project, partnering with Oscar Farinetti who shares the same sustainability ethos with us”, says Gildo Zegna, CEO of Ermenegildo Zegna.     Zegna’s offering within Green Pea will also include an exclusive Made to Measure brand experience featuring a unique selection of products and textiles, such as ACHILLFARMTMwool that comes directly from our own farm in Australia, and 12MILMIL12 woven from our luxurious, superfine Australian wool. Moreover, Zegna offers Green Pea’s customers a selection of handmade products developed in collaboration with the San Patrignano community and an exclusive new range of OASI Zegna cashmere plaids made with #UseTheExisting fabric. Beyond our products, customers will also have the opportunity to experience OASI Zegna first-hand in a scaled-down version of the nature park thoughtfully replicated outside its original environment: a walking pathway showcasing a total of 14 different botanical species on the building’s terrace, mapping out the history of our green lung OASI Zegna.

adidas for Prada Two Icons of Design and Innovation Come Together to Launch the A+P LUNA ROSSA 21 silhouette

adidas for Prada Two Icons of Design and Innovation Come Together to Launch the A+P LUNA ROSSA 21 silhouette

Accessories The next iteration of the Adidas and Prada partnership has arrived. Until now, the two brands manifested their collaboration through a specific perspective as Prada brought its distinct lens to adidas, reinterpreting the Superstar sneaker with expert craftsmanship. For the next stage in the ongoing partnership, adidas brings its expertise to Prada, creating the forward thinking A+P LUNA ROSSA 21 silhouette for the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli team.     Both Prada and adidas have continually expressed an innate passion for athletic performance. Prada has participated in the oldest trophy in sport, the America’s Cup, for over two decades with the Luna Rossa sailing team; adidas’ continuous commitment to pioneering sporting innovation and precision technology has also extended to the America’s Cup, as the brand equipped a challenger team between 2005 and 2007.     Crafted for the sport of sailing, the A+P LUNA ROSSA 21 is inspired by the design of the new AC75 Luna Rossa boat as well as iconic Prada and adidas sneakers from the past. Celebrating a shared legacy of sporting excellence and designed as an extension of the athlete’s body, thesilhouette features a sleek, lightweight look and feel, matched with flexible barefoot stability. While the performance-focused shoes will be worn in competition by the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli team, a lifestyle version will be available for purchase.     Fueled by a combined dedication to innovation and sustainability, the A+P LUNA ROSSA 21 serves as a collaborative step toward both brands' commitments for the environment. The upper is composed of PRIMEGREEN, a series of high-performance recycled materials, which is then complimented by a hydrophobic E-TPU outer shell, providing flexible, breathable support and preventing water from penetrating the silhouette. The sneaker’s ergonomically designed EVA tongue and perforated, soft, synthetic-suede inner saddle accentuate its sailing performance capabilities. Moreover, the sneaker features a perforated BOOST midsole as well as a wrap-around outsole to provide elevated protection, durability, and freedom of movement. The specially crafted laces which have been designed to be narrow at the bottom, enabling Speed Lacing, and wider at the top, preventing tied knots from coming open easily during competition. The silhouette then comes packaged in a sleek co- branded box that slips inside of a custom water-resistant pouch-bag.     Accompanying the launch of the silhouette is an elegantly shot campaign, which explores the sensation of lightness through visual depictions of luminosity and weightlessness.     Serving as the next evolution of this forward-thinking partnership, the adidas for Prada A+P LUNA ROSSA 21 silhouette launches globally in a white colorway on December 9 2020, via Prada boutiques and adidas flagship stores worldwide, alongside selected wholesalers. The range is also available via prada.com and adidas.com.     #adidasforPrada The next iteration of the Adidas and Prada partnership has arrived.

BREITLING LAUNCHES INNOVATIVE, SUSTAINABLE WATCH BOX CREATED ENTIRELY FROM UPCYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES

BREITLING LAUNCHES INNOVATIVE, SUSTAINABLE WATCH BOX CREATED ENTIRELY FROM UPCYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES

Watches Breitling is introducing a foldable, reusable watch box created entirely from upcycled plastic bottles. With the new box, Breitling has effectively reinvented packaging in the watch industry – underscoring the brand’s com- mitment to reducing its environmental impact and replacing the large, heavy watch boxes that have long been an industry mainstay with a small, smart, modular alternative. The sustainable packaging has already been awarded the Efficient Solution Label, given by the Solar Impulse Foundation to solutions that have a positive impact on the environment and the economy.     Breitling’s new watch box is made from materials that can be recycled and reused in future projects. From the fabric to the push buttons that open it – the new watch box is made from 100% upcycled PET bottles, which are among the most widely recyclable types of plastic. Following the cradle-to-cradle – or regenerative – prin- ciple, once the box is no longer needed, it can be re- cycled at a dedicated facility where it will be fed back into the rPET cycle. Breitling’s new watch boxes will be available in early 2021.     Breitling CEO Georges Kern is excited about what the in- dustry’s first 100% recycled and recyclable watch box that is both foldable and reusable means to his brand. He says: “Breitling is committed to doing everything within its sphere of influence to reduce the company’s environmental impact. With that in mind, we started working on a sustainable packaging concept with the goal of optimizing the impact on the environment, and the result has exceeded our ambitions. It has evolved into a positively disruptive element that has affected many different aspects of our packaging, ranging from material to transport and even to how customers will use the box.”     A Reduced Footprint and Fewer Materials:   Before introducing the new watch box, Breitling had already explored ways of reducing the environmental footprint of its packaging. The brand created an alter- native box that was about half the size of the industry standard – and that was only the beginning. The next major step was the introduction of the new watch box, which, in turn, is about half the size of Breitling’s current box. At the same time, Breitling reduced the number of elements used in its packaging from an average of 12 to just 3: the box, the pillow, and the quick-start guide.     Optimized Logistics Flows, Minimized CO2 Emissions:   With its revised packaging concept, Breitling is able to ship the new boxes directly to its markets, meaning that the average distance a box travels is reduced by almost 30%. The smaller size has a positive impact on logistics, particularly since the box can be unfolded and shipped flat. The steps that Breitling has taken since the start of its search for an environmentally friendly watch box have meant a reduction in transport-related CO2 emissions of over 60% compared to those generated by the shipment of its original watch box.   These new, ecologically responsible watch boxes com- plement some of Breitling’s other initiatives, including its partnership with the NGO Ocean Conservancy, which is dedicated to solving the most pressing challenges facing the world’s oceans, including ocean plastics.       Added Benefits for Breitling Customers:   In addition, the pillow inside the box has been given a second purpose with a design that allows it to be used as a travel pouch. Breitling started out with the idea of creating a watch box with reduced environmental impact but the project has resulted in some additional benefits. With the innovative design and multiple uses of the box and pillow elements, customers will appre- ciate the packaging for its practicality and versatility.     The Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label:   Breitling was delighted to see its new sustainable pack- aging concept awarded the Efficient Solution Label, delivered by the Solar Impulse Foundation. The founda- tion has set itself the goal of selecting 1000 solutions that protect the environment in a financially profitable way, presenting them to decision-makers in order to accelerate the transition to a carbon-neutral economy, and has recognized Breitling’s new packaging as one of them. Thanks to a rigorous evaluation process, the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label is the only eval- uation that guarantees the economic profitability of products and processes that protect the environment. Considered a recognition for innovators and a credible marker of quality for governments and companies, it enables decision-makers to find efficient solutions to meet their environmental commitments.     Customers Can Choose the Conventional Box – and Support SUGi:   The classic Breitling watch box will still be available to customers who request it. They will be encouraged to offset the environmental impact of their choice by making a voluntary contribution to SUGi. Breitling is proud to be a partner of this people-powered impact venture, which is committed to making the restoration of biodiversity simple, shareable, and societally trans- formative. The funds will be used to restore biodiver- sity and regenerate ecosystems in SUGi Urban Forests around the world.         Breitling is introducing a foldable, reusable watch box created entirely from upcycled plastic bottles.

Directional pieces accentuate new tailoring for women as embodied by a long, fitted blazer with a draped collar and slim, high-rise trousers with fusing at the ankles. Denims are embellished with audacious, intricate treatments that give them unique crackled or lustrous finishes. A soft, denim-like jacquard with a textured weave reprises the House’s iconic 4G emblem. Statement outerwear includes a lightweight, tailored three- quarter length coat in croc-print calfskin bonded with nappa, and voluminous urban windbreakers also in croc-print leather or in black ottoman.     Key pieces for men include a single-breasted jacket with an overlay collar and the 4G emblem discreetly embroidered on the lining. Classic-fit trousers nod to the iconic Antigona bags with original yet discreet metallic details, as do boxy shirts with zip and snap closures. An oversized parka in technical ottoman emphasizes Givenchy’s of-the-moment urban spirit, with design elements that make it both functional and elegant. Hoodies and sweatshirts, too, are embellished with newly restyled Givenchy emblems.     A love of hardware being central to his fashion aesthetic, Matthew M. Williams created a series of tech- forward prints for T-shirts with a 3D chain-embossed detail at the neck or trompe l’oeil renderings of locks and eyelets clenched over spliced “GIVENCHY” lettering.     This season’s essential bags likewise feature distinctive hardware that was specially developed by Matthew M. Williams for Givenchy. The new Antigona in black box leather now has dual Givenchy signatures, longer handles and a 4G padlock. Additional styles include two cross-body bags, the unisex Vertical mini with chain and the Antigona U for men.     Footwear includes the Lock ankle boot, the Marshmallow wedge slide for women and flat sandal for men, and the GIV 1 high-performance men’s sneaker with a lightweight, transparent sole, in black or white.     The statement-making flat cap with horns and a black leather belt with a G-chain buckle round out this premiere.     The “Teaser” capsule collection will premiere exclusively in seven Givenchy stores in Europe, Asia and the US, as well as on givenchy.com in selected countries from December 1st to 22nd, 2020. It will be followed by the first official drop by Matthew M Williams, for Summer 2021, which will bow acrossGivenchy’s worldwide retail network on February 26th, 2021.

Kaspersky and KRAKATAU present unique collection customized by your digital imprint

Fashion Today, self-expression is not only about showing our individuality through the clothes we wear and how we look but also by what we do online - with many of us using new media to share our views and beliefs. How can people create their digital identities and express themselves while keeping their unique personality safe online? To raise awareness about the importance of privacy and freedom of self-expression, Kaspersky and international techware brand KRAKATAU have launched a collection of garments that can be customized via an owner’s digital identity imprint – the Safe_expression collection.   According to recent Kaspersky research, 37% of millennials think that they are too boring to ever be the victim of cybercrime. However, analysis of several Darknet markets by Kaspersky experts shows that our data can be valuable not only for us but also for cybercriminals. Thus, among the most prized and desired data sold on these markets are selfies that are shared with documents, such as passports or drivers’ licenses (worth up to $40-60), medical records (up to $30), credit card details (up to $20), PayPal accounts (up to $500), and full ID information (up to $10). This information can be used for various malicious purposes, from using peoples’ data to receive money, to blackmailing them.   The internet and online services give us vast opportunities to share our views and connect with people around the world, and we need to make sure it is a safe place to express ourselves. Today, being an individual means being brave and bold with your opinions and the task of safely expressing ourselves becomes a non-trivial one. Kaspersky is committed to protecting people’s unique data and aims to create opportunities so people can express themselves safely.     The exclusive collection designed with KRAKATAU invites you to create a garment that shows off your unique personality and reveals how ready you are to protect your privacy. The clothing items are based on a person’s digital imprint. By simply answering a few questions from a special chat bot about your online behavior and privacy habits, you will receive your very own unique print. The print is crafted from unique algorithms that analyze users’ privacy concerns. The more a person is concerned about their privacy – the more complex or the more harmonious a print will be.     “Expressing individuality has always been important for people and today we have a lot more opportunities to do it digitally. We see how people can create a positive change in the world by sharing their stories and what they stand for. But it’s also important that our self-expression should also be safe as each one of us is unique and the data we share online is of exceptional value, making it crucial for us all to know how to protect it,” comments Andrew Winton, Vice President for Global Marketing at Kaspersky. “By creating this collection with KRAKATAU we want to talk about privacy and safety in a way that it can relate to fashion and simply explain how your self-expression can remain independent and protected.”   “What we especially liked about this collaboration idea is the creative Do It Yourself (DIY) element, where people can customize clothes to fit their personalities. What’s more, the customization is not based on people’s emotions but on how they use their devices and their digital habits, which is highly important in today's digital world. In the end, security has become the key theme of the collection – it demonstrates how you can keep your data safe online, while the clothing items from the collection protect you from harsh real-world weather conditions,” comments the KRAKATAU team.     The Safe_expression limited collection uses experimental technologies and features t-shirts, sweatshirts and jackets in contrasting black and neon green colors. The items in the collection are made of Repreve functional recycling insulation and membrane fabric with water-repellent coating. Each piece is complemented by minimalistic design marks and can activate the idea behind the collection, which is to create a personalized garment customized by your digital imprint in an online builder, via the brand's website https://krakatauwear.com/pages/safe-expression.
