12 Startups To Be Supported By Collaboration Between Plug and Play, Fashion Plug, and Kering

London, 2017-Apr-16 — /EPR Retail News/ — From the over 250 applicants and a shortlist of twenty, a final selection of twelve start-ups have been awarded a place in the ‘Plug and Play – Fashion for Good’ accelerator, a collaboration between Plug and Play, Fashion for Good and Kering which aims to fast-track sustainable innovation within the luxury and apparel industries.

The twelve start-ups selected, who come from varied fields and academic backgrounds around the world, are Agraloop, Amadou, Dragon, Dropel, ICA Bremen, MySource, MycoTex, Pili-bio, RePack, Sundar, Tersus and Tipa. Selected for their comprehensive approaches to the textile supply-chain, the start-ups’ innovations range from developing new raw materials which will reduce fashion’s environmental impacts, to alternative production methods which will increase clothes’ longevity, and the development of new processes which enable closed-loop product lifecycles.

Under the accelerator, the start-ups will follow a unique 3-month programme during which Plug and Play, Fashion for Good and Kering will support them in scaling-up their innovations by providing mentoring, training, networking opportunities, and other valuable resources.

The accelerator’s second edition will take place later in 2017, with applications already open to start-ups.

“At Plug and Play, we have been helping the startup world for the past eleven years, and now, with the creation of the Plug and Play – Fashion for Good accelerator, we are looking for startups that have both social impact and environmental impact. With the direction of Fashion for Good and Kering, the twelve companies we have accepted will make an impact on a global scale,” says Saeed Amidi, Founder and CEO of Plug and Play.

“These 12 exciting start-ups are helping the world reimagine how fashion is designed, made, worn and reused. They were chosen because they can all play a pivotal role in achieving the Five Goods of a new, transformed fashion industry: Good Materials, Good Economy, Good Energy, Good Water and Good Lives. The Plug and Play – Fashion for Good Accelerator nurtures and funds early-stage ideas, business models and technologies likes these to scale them and embed them into the industry. We can’t wait to get it started,” said Leslie Johnston of C&A Foundation, the founding partner of Fashion for Good.

“The key to sustainable progress is innovation, and the ingenuity and endless possibilities that these twelve start-ups have brought to us is truly impressive,” said Marie-Claire Daveu, Chief Sustainability Officer and head of international institutional affairs of Kering. “We look forward to working closely with them to achieve operational practicality, and at the scale required for widespread adoption so that we can support the transformational change that is critically needed in our industry.”

Prada Stores in Porto Cervo Present New Store Image

MILAN, Italy, 2017-Apr-16 — /EPR Retail News/ — Prada stores in Porto Cervo, the fashionable resort on the Costa Smeralda, present a unique, innovative image for the 2017 season: an original design with a holiday vibe to create an exclusive, contemporary shopping experience.

Located on La Passeggiata, the stores have surface areas of 170 and 100 square metres respectively, and offer womenswear and menswear collections, accessories and footwear as well as a selection of special products.

The store concept combines the long-standing classic elements of Prada’s identity – its iconic black-and-white chequered marble floor and green cloth-covered walls – with natural materials such as teak wood, in a setting with a sunny atmosphere. The original white-and- yellow striped ceiling is a modern interpretation of the classic coffered ceiling.

The women’s space is flooded with natural light which filters through the large windows and wooden brise soleils. In the men’s shop, the brise soleils is also in the skylight.

The walls are covered with original, creative fabrics, some of which are printed with revisited classic patterns from the Prada collections. Products are displayed in a brightly coloured setting which can be modified to suit the season, creating a sophisticated yet laid- back atmosphere.

The engaging product display layout brings to mind the idea of a bazaar.

To complete the furnishings, rare design pieces such as metal tubing-framed wicker armchairs from the Fifties and rattan armchairs designed by Franco Albini create intimate spaces for relaxing moments of leisure.

Through this new image, Prada’s Porto Cervo stores convey the feeling of a luxurious, relaxing holiday in a setting that is authentically Prada yet also contemporary and new, even unexplored.
