One always remembers what precedes the first step : the vertigo, the excitement, the idea of the world opening up.
Pierre Hardy recalls this particular first step very well. It was already in the midst of the pandemic, when nothing was working as usual. So, he thought of a new approach. Creating a capsule of iconic models crafted as ethically as possible. Rethinking every detail, every step and wondering how to make them eco-responsible. Finding the perfect balance between style, silhouette and sustainability whilst staying true to his designs.
The sustainable approach was achieved in partnership with the historical suppliers and manufacturers of the brand: upcycling the House’s leather stocks, recycling with regenerated Nylon and selecting vegetable- tanned leather. All other parts and materials (lining, outsoles, laces, straps...) were chosen as carefully as possible by the studio. The styles from the Planet collection will only be produced upon order, in limited edition, while material stocks last. Shoe boxes have been locally crafted in FSC-certified paper and shoe pouches are made from recycled Nylon.
