British designer Stella McCartney has signed a long-term partnership with Thélios to create sustainable eyewear starting with the next spring/summer season.
The first collection will be released in November 2020 and will include sustainable features like bio-lenses and ecological bio-acetate as part of McCartney’s commitment to sustainable fashion.
The partnership will also feature a Stella McCartney Kids collection featuring bio-acetate for the first time.
“Since day one, we have been committed to creating materials that are the most desirable, with the least impact on the planet – including in the plastic-heavy, luxury eyewear category,” said McCartney. “We introduce to Thélios our biotech solutions and sustainable innovation and are thrilled to have their experts join us in growing Stella McCartney eyewear’s eco-friendly vision.”
Thélios is the eyewear division of Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy (LVMH). Brands include Celine, Loewe, Kenzo and Fenty.
