Following Milan Fashion Week, fashion brand ‘Boss’ has dropped a sustainable outerwear capsule. The brand’s fall collection this year is set to include HeiQ AeoniQ fabric.
Boss is returning to Milan Fashion Week after a successful display there last year that included Fortune and Naomi Campbell among a diverse ensemble, and its coed autumn 2023 collection is expected to be full of ecological credentials.
The company said on Monday that the exhibition will feature a see now, buy now, limited-edition capsule line called "The Change" that will feature outerwear made from the company's distinctive HeiQ AeoniQ fabric.
The high-tech, plant-based fabric is paired with bio-based water-resistant membranes and Swiss Pima cotton instead of oil-based yarns like polyester and nylon.
The three-layer fabric is created into a double-breasted trenchcoat for men with a removable belt; a women's version is also available. The HeiQ AeoniQ fabric is used in a third design, a loose-fitting bomber jacket that is genderless and has padding made primarily of recycled silk.
As part of Boss' commitment to sustainability, the collaboration is a long-term partnership between the German brand and the supplier that aims to take a number of steps toward carbon neutrality by 2030.
Boss has flown to a number of locations, including Dubai, Milan, and Miami, for its spring collections, adhering to Milan's September fashion week to reveal its fall lines. Boss adopted the see now, purchase now concept several seasons ago.
