Belgium-based accessory label, Kipling, has unveiled the debut of its new sustainable collection, which was developed in collaboration with Redress, which chose a designer from among the past Redress Design Award finalists and semi-finalists.
The brand has launched a competition to find the sustainable capsule collection's designer. Kipling requested that the designer use VF Corporation deadstock, end-of-roll fabrics, or innovative recycled fabrics, as well as a circular design philosophy.
The virtual competition was held in November 2020, with a winner chosen from seven finalist designers by VF Corporation and Kipling's executive team. Uniqueness, inventiveness in storytelling, utility, bag silhouette, and use of deadstock were all factors in the selection process.
Beatrice Bocconi, a contestant in the Redress Design Award 2020, won the competition with her use of deadstock materials in designs influenced by punk culture and Vivienne Westwood.
Beatrice Bocconi, a 23-year-old Italian designer, said that he believes in the importance of textile design and manipulations to re-use forgotten fabrics and small pieces of fabric, which is why each bag he has created and produced is unique. The Redress x Kipling collaboration is a modest step toward a more conscientious and ethical fashion business. He liked how Kipling isn't just concerned about this issue; he's working behind the scenes to make it a reality.
Both Redress and Kipling hope that by launching this limited-edition collection, they will demonstrate their dedication to the industry's next generation of sustainable fashion designers, as well as the industry's march toward a circular economy.
