Burberry and its Econyl's collection

Iconic British fashion house Burberry created a collection both for men and women realized in Econyl, a sustainable nylon yarn made from regenerated fishing nets, fabric scraps, and industrial plastic.

The capsule collection includes fresh iterations of the brand’s heritage trench and car coat silhouettes and new Burberry icons, such as the logo-print oversized cape, fleece-lined puffer, and reversible bomber jacket. The Thomas Burberry monogram, a graphic house code inspired by the founder’s initials, is reimagined in jacquard textures, while the collection continues to celebrate the brand’s archive beige vintage check.

Pam Batty, VP Corporate Responsibility at Burberry, stated: «Exploring and using innovative materials that foster circularity is central to creating a more sustainable fashion industry. We are proud to use the ECONYL® yarn in this collection because it shows how we can actively tackle a problem like plastic waste and create beautiful, luxury products at the same time. This collection is just one of the ways Burberry is actively disrupting and improving every stage of how we create our products because we know our industry can play a key role in building a more sustainable future through science and innovation».

Giulio Bonazzi, CEO at the Aquafil group, active in the production of synthetic fibers, said: «We are delighted to collaborate with Burberry for this capsule collection. We believe innovative fibers like ECONYL® regenerated nylon are the future and are proud to support brands who use our yarns, transforming waste into incredible designs and raising the profile and possibilities of a more circular fashion system».

You can find the capsule collection at Burberry’s site and in boutiques.
