Net-A-Porter and Gemfields have launched two exclusive capsules to support international conservation charity Space for Giants.
The Italian online fashion retailer and the worlds leading supplier of responsibly sourced colored gemstones have released two exclusive capsule collections. The Net-A-Porter capsule comprises of 38 pieces from renowned brands including Burberry, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Brunello Cucinelli, Chantecaille, and Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen as well as emerging designers such as Hereu, Fisch and Bassike. The Gemfields capsule is a 44-piece collection made of rubies and emeralds sourced from Mozambique and Zambia.
All profits from the sales of both capsules will directly benefit Space for Giants. The Space for Giants charity aims to raise awareness of the dangers that climate change, overdevelopment, and poaching pose to species and their habitats with a campaign titled Walk for Giants which will see a group of the charity's global ambassadors trek through one of Kenya's most ancient elephant migration trails to raise funds for Africa's endangered wildlife.
'We are honored to be partnering with Space for Giants on these exclusive capsule collections, with all profits benefitting the charity and the worthwhile cause of protecting Africa's wildlife and landscape at this crucial time,' Elizabeth von der Goltz, Global Buying Director, Net-A-Porter said in a press release.
'Africa's natural resources, whether in the form of her minerals or her biodiversity, must play a greater role in supporting local communities and championing vast conservation spaces. We need everyone to walk the talk for these giant causes and we are honored to support the energetic team at Space for Giants in their intrepid cause,' said Sean Gilbertson, CEO of Gemfields.
'Frontline protection for elephants and the natural habitats they depend on is in crisis. This extraordinary campaign with Net-A-Porter offers a lifeline to the work we do and the world's remaining giants we are protecting,' added Dr Max Graham, Founder and CEO of Space for Giants.
Accompanying the launch of the collection is a campaign featuring Arizona Muse and Selena Forrest shot by Italian director Francesco Carrozzini at Enasoit Game Sanctuary in Laikipia, Kenya that highlights the beauty of the African wilderness.
