Following the launch of the Duchess of Sussex’s fashion collection designed to raise money for Smart Works- a charity that supports unemployed and disadvantaged women trying to re-enter the workplace, Prince Charles has now followed suit with The Modern Artisan. A womenswear and menswear range to be released next summer 2020, the collection brings together artisanal textile and data-driven design through high-end sustainable manufacturing.
“Designed in Italy and crafted in the UK, The Modern Artisan collection will be an important expression of how talent and technology can work across boundaries and borders,” Federico Marchetti, chairman and CEO of Yoox Net-a-Porter said. “This project, part of a longterm partnership between Yoox Net-a-Porter and The Prince’s Foundation, will help equip a new generation of skilled men and women to fuse traditional craft with digitally-infused creativity – and, importantly, to do so sustainably, following the example of HRH The Prince of Wales who has dedicated the last 40 years to building a more sustainable future.”
The collection will be sold at luxury online stores Net-a-Porter, Mr Porter, The Outnet and Yoox. All profits from the collection going to The Prince’s Foundation.
