Clothes Doctor and Net A Porter Join Forces for The Modern Artisan Collection
Net A Porter has partnered with The Prince's Foundation, the educational charity established by HRH The Prince of Wales, to launch The Modern Artisan project, and they've invited Clothes Doctor to participate.
"The partnership is equipping the next generation of British and Italian talents with YOOX NET-A-PORTER data insights and a deep understanding of the rich heritage of artisanal expertise from each country."
The project has combined a group of students from Italy's Politecnico di Milano design school to create a sustainable luxury capsule collection of menswear and womenswear, along with British artisans to manufacture the majority of the collection by hand at Dumfries House, the headquarters of The Prince’s Foundation in Ayrshire, Scotland.
"The Anglo-Italian collaboration celebrates the marriage of artisanal textile and data-driven design expertise with high-end sustainable manufacturing at its heart."
Even better, all profits from every purchase will be donated to support the charitable work of The Prince's Foundation.
"Each piece is equipped with a digital ID, providing the story behind the product, its materials, the artisans who designed and made it, as well as care and repair recommendations from Clothes Doctor, to enable customers to treasure these pieces for years to come."
With a shared passion for improving the fashion industry's environmental footprint, using the finest natural silk, cashmere and wool fibres, along with YOOX NET-A-PORTER's commitment to after-care and sustainability, we've teamed up to provide our expert care tips to all pieces of The Modern Artisan Collection.
From using our Clothes Brush to remove fibres, dust, dirt and hair
The Modern Artisan collection, branded YOOX NET-A-PORTER for The Prince’s Foundation, is sold across all four YOOX NET-A-PORTER brands, in a first as the grand finale of the Group’s 20th anniversary.
