Save the Duck presented its spring collection on a Milanese historical tram last month, winding around the heart of the city. The tram itself represented just how much Save the Duck cares about every aspect of a “green company.” Complete with a vegan breakfast, the vibrantly colored jackets were displayed hanging from overhead bars. “Eco-sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. Save the Duck customers are looking for an overall healthy lifestyle; less pollution, healthy food and clothing with eco-safe solutions,” said Nicolas Bargi, who masterminded the Save the Duck project. “Technology has come so far that our jackets are exactly as warm as real down, if not warmer and all without harming animals.” The city-wear line is designed by Andrea Gualieri — who also designs Aspesi — and Mirco Giovannini.
Barghi comes from a family of Italian tailors and continues to bring quality and Italian taste to a market that is evermore tending towards a more conscious consumer world.
Other projects include an online capsule collection with proceeds going to Oxfam and the non-profit group Teodora, giving donations to Clown Therapy for terminally ill children. Both are LAV and PETA-certified for the protection of animal rights. Additionally, they also working on becoming a 100 percent green company to include all aspects of their business from solar-powered production to recycled business cards.
Their warm eco-sustainable jackets will be available online starting June 1. Save the Duck is also creating a capsule collection in collaboration with WWF to celebrate WWF Italy’s 50th anniversary. At Pitti Uomo, on Jan. 12, it will unveil its collection comprising 50 different colors, each connected to an animal.
