The Yoox Net-a-Porter Group has joined forces with The Prince’s
Foundation, the charity run by Prince Charles, to launch a sustainable
luxury ready-to-wear collection. Comprised of 18 pieces and including
both womenswear and menswear, the capsule is branded “Yoox
Net-a-Porter for The Prince’s Foundation.”

The capsule is the culmination of The Modern Artisan project, a
partnership between the YNAP and The Prince’s Foundation . The project
aims to strengthen textile skills of trainee artisans in the UK and
Italy to equip them for producing luxury apparel collections to the
highest standards.

The collection was designed in Italy and crafted in the UK, to
celebrate the rich heritage and futures of both British and Italian
textile craftsmanship.

Modern Artisan project trains designers to combine traditional
skill with technology

The project has equipped its trainee artisans with the skills
needed to bring a luxury collection to market in today’s world,
utilizing data insights, sustainable practices and traditional
production skills.

“The Modern Artisan project harnesses big data and artificial
intelligence to transform the ancient profession of craftsmanship into
a contemporary career,” Federico Marchetti, YNAP chairman and CEO,
said in a statement. “We have equipped the next generation of artisans
with the digital tools of the trade to navigate an ever-evolving
landscape.”

Six Italian students from the research laboratory of Politecnico di
Milano’s Fashion in Process led the design of the collection, while
British artisans trained in small batch productions skills at Dumfries
House in Ayrshire, Scotland. The students were all taught how to
process image data and use AI visual recognition to inform their
designs.

The Yoox Net-a-Porter for The Prince’s Foundation is currently
available through Net-a-Porter, with prices ranging from 475 to 1,495
dollars. All profits from the sale of the collection will be donated
to The Prince’s Foundation, and will be used to develop and deliver
training programs to preserve traditional textile skills.
