BOSS continues its journey towards a more sustainable approach to fashion with the launch of an exclusive Sailing Capsule crafted from responsible materials.
The eight pieces in the capsule collection, presented in the colours of the HUGO BOSS yacht, are made from recycled polyester and organic cotton. Their reduced use of resources mirrors the design ethos of the new boat, which skipper Alex Thomson will sail in the 2020 Vendée Globe.
The easy-wear designs combine elevated fabrics with functional details. In a pared back yet striking palette of black, white and neon pink, they are equally suited to a day on the water as to time relaxing at home.
The water-resistant raincoat, hoodie, cap and backpack in the capsule are all made from double-faced recycled polyester woven using Social Plastic® yarn from Plastic Bank®. This initiative drives social change by helping stop plastic reaching the ocean, while improving the lives of collector communities.
The iconic BOSS logo T-shirt, polo, knitted beanie and cosy sweater that complete the collection are crafted from cotton sourced from COTTONFORLIFE, which aims to develop and sustain farming of high-quality organic cotton and promote a fully transparent, eco-friendly and socially responsible cotton value chain.
The development of the capsule was inspired by the approach taken by Alex Thomson Racing in the design and build of the new HUGO BOSS yacht.
