The next generation of the shoes will be composed with white PRIMEGREEN uppers, a series of high-performance recycled materials and white recycled rubber outsoles.

HRH The Prince of Wales’ charity, The Prince’s Foundation in November of last year partnered with fashion retailer YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP to launch a new capsule collection of luxury sustainable womenswear and menswear. Titled The Modern Artisan project, the 18-piece collection has been crafted by young artisans and students from both Italy and the UK, of which the initiative seeks to provide a platform for young and aspiring designers. Prince Charles said of the collection, “I’ve been enormously impressed by the efforts, the ideas and the vision shown by the artisans from the UK and Italy. Hopefully they will take away a great deal of skill and understanding of sustainable approaches to design and manufacturing that they can apply to their own businesses or future careers. The key for me is to rediscover the importance that nature plays, understand where natural materials come from and how they can be used in exciting and innovative ways. After all, nature is the source of everything.” net-a-porter.com
