Hot on the heels of their first eyewear capsule collection with Kering, Balenciaga has teamed up with Farfetch for an exclusive new release that champions species conservation through fashion. The exclusive capsule collection between the two brans has launched globally online, and features menswear, womenswear as well as kidswear.
The capsule features several firsts for the two brands: not only does it include previously unseen colourways and fabrics, the collection will not feature any leather, fur or down. Balenciaga will also donate some of the proceeds towards the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), an organisation working in the field of nature conservation and sustainable use of natural resources.
“Balenciaga is pleased to launch this exclusive collection. Bringing awareness to threatened species and supporting the conservation actions of IUCN is part of our vision.” Says Cédric Charbit, Chief Executive Officer of Balenciaga.
“At Farfetch, Balenciaga is extremely popular with our global customers, so we are thrilled to launch this new capsule collection in collaboration with the brand, consisting of exclusive pieces that cannot be found anywhere else,” adds José Neves, Founder, Co-Chairman and CEO of Farfetch, which recently launched in the Middle East. “We think the collection will delight people who are existing fans of the brand, as well as capturing the imagination of new fans as well.”
Pieces from the range feature illustrations of endangered animal species such as the Northern White Rhinoceros, the Asian Elephant, the Blue Whale and the Giant Panda. As well as the animal-themed drops, the collection also includes over-sized coats, a distressed denim jacket and pops of neon.
