Dutch luxury fashion house Viktor & Rolf has teamed up with Swiss
premium underwear label Calida to launch a cradle-to-cradle collection
which is 100 percent compostable.
The capsule, called ‘We Want A Better World’, comprises underwear,
pajamas and t-shirts for both women and men, and is inspired by the
free-spirited and eco-conscious Woodstock generation.
The collection uses Tencel Lyocell fibres and Roica V550, a premium
stretch sustainable yarn by Asahi Kasei.
“The Capsule collection is a unique blend of extravagance and
sustainability. By working
with Viktor & Rolf we are proving that high fashion and the highest
sustainability are not mutually exclusive,” Janine Weiz-Bühler, director of
brand and products
at Calida, said in a statement. “We are sending out a signal and setting new
standards in sustainable fashion.”
