Blondie star Debbie Harry has launched an eco-fashion assortment with designers Vin + Omi.
The 75-year-old singer has teased an upcoming vogue assortment known as HOPE in response to the difficult instances the planet is going through.
She mentioned: “Our hope is to draw attention to the harmful effects of plastic in our environment – which is damaging human health, marine life & habitats, littering beaches and landscapes, clogging waste streams and landfills – and to educate & empower people to make a difference towards helping adjust human attitudes and behaviors about plastics while reducing global plastic pollution.”
The first drop will embody two eco T-shirts and hoodies comprised of blends of reclaimed cotton and recycled plastic rPET materials.
The selection of materials is one thing that each Debbie and sustainable designing duo VIN + OMI are captivated with as plastic air pollution is on the rise and the atmosphere is affected by a rise in consumption of plastic.
VIN + OMI added: “Our new eco collaboration with Debbie is a reaction to the zeitgeist. We love working with her and are inspired by her forward thinking and desire to do things that make a difference to the planet. She’s always very … now.”
The HOPE project is a natural continuation of the connection between Debbie and the designers as the ‘Call Me’ singer has debuted some of their boldest designs over the years including the “Stop F****** The Planet” cape which she wore on Blondie’s 2017-2019 ‘Pollinator World Tour’.
