We are proud to have contributed with our fabrics to Dior first beachwear capsule designed by Kim Jones in collaboration with Parley for the Oceans: a prestigious project that combines style, innovation and sustainability and that marks an important step towards a new vision of the fashion world.
The teams at Dior used the recycled polyester developed by Parley to create, in collaboration with Clerici Tessuto, fabrics including a jacquard, a mesh knit and a technical canvas. Working in a palette of blues and ochres, they wove in patterns such as the house’s signature Oblique, as well a ripple graphic motif from the archives, known as the Adriatic.
The Dior capsule collection supports Parley X10 impact program, which aims to guarantee that 10 times the equivalent of each product’s carbon and plastic footprint will be intercepted from nature; fund the development of materials that can replace plastic long term, and avoid the use of new, virgin plastic.
