YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP has announced that it has launched a new partnership and project with The Prince's Foundation. The Modern Artisan project is designed to equip young artisans with the skills to succeed in a fast-paced digital landscape and produce luxury apparel collections to the highest standards.
Six Italian students selected from leading design school, Politecnico di Milano, will design the collection, drawing inspiration from both the convergence of art and science in the work of Italian polymath Leonardo Da Vinci, in the 500th anniversary year of his death and the rich heritage of British and Italian textile craftsmanship.
The collection will be launched next year in celebration of YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP’s 20th anniversary. In a Group first, the collection will be sold across all four YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP brands (YOOX, NET-A-PORTER, MR PORTER and THE OUTNET). Profits from the sale of the collection will be donated to The Prince’s Foundation to support its charitable work.
