TIMELESS, EFFORTLESSLY COOL, & SUSTAINABLE

Amber Valletta envisioned creating a sustainable ready-to-wear collection that is timeless and stylish, including classic pieces such as a biker jacket, a little black dress, and a relaxed suit.

“We designed the collection to be effortlessly cool where the pieces could be interchangeable with multiple looks,” adds Amber.

“The rock ’n’ roll cactus leather biker jacket is super chic and the perfect timeless piece!” It’s also inspired by Karl’s Odina jacket and made with a vegan alternative material that’s naturally dyed.

“Karl’s iconic influence is at the core of this fashion-conscious collection, I see it like borrowing the best pieces from my boyfriend’s closet,” says Amber Valletta.

CERTIFIED ECO-FRIENDLY FABRICS & DESIGN

“I thoughtfully chose the fabrics based on the best environmental choices at hand like certified 100% organic cotton from India, organic, GRS Certified recycled linen from Turkey and Italy, and innovative materials like Tencel x Refibra from Lenzing, a circular material using pre-consumer cotton waste in the blend,” explains Amber Valletta.

 

The biker jacket, K/Kushion bags, and footwear are made using cactus leather, a vegan alternative sourced from the leaves of the cacti.

 

Working with the KARL LAGERFELD production team, Amber Valletta kept manufacturing close to the fabric/fiber source to minimize shipping and reduce the carbon footprint where feasible.

 

Amber also thought about circularity.“I considered products’ end-of-life and suggested design adjustments to eliminate unnecessary elements like zippers that could make the product more difficult to break down,” says Amber.

 

Amber Valletta and the KARL LAGERFELD family made conscious decisions that lowered the carbon footprint and environmental impact of the collection as much as possible.

 

Amber shares some inspiration. “The sustainable fashion journey is a challenge that can’t be done perfectly. It’s going to take all of us, bringing our unique perspectives together to make real change. This takes creativity, courage, collaboration, and commitment, which we have.”

THE FASHIONABLE ACTIVIST

Amber Valletta is a daily activist who uses her voice and influence to bring attention to the climate crisis and the actions that can be taken to solve it.

 

On a day-to-day basis, Amber makes mindful choices with her clothes: “I don’t throw any of my clothing in the trash – not even a sock! I keep them in a bag until I can drop them off at a take-back program or recycler.”

 

Amber Valletta drives an electric vehicle, reduces her plastic as much as possible, and uses a refillable water bottle.

 

“My mom instilled in me a sense of activism to protect my community and the environment. I learned how to stand up for what I believe in and do it with style.” – Amber Valletta
