SUSTAINABLE MEETS AMERICANA: ICONIC STYLE FROM BOSS X PHIPPS

BOSS and PHIPPS have come together to launch a new genderless collection that celebrates the brands' shared appreciation for craft, quality, and sustainability. The collection comprises instantly recognizable PHIPPS styles in a color palette that is inspired by nature. Some styles also include a custom logo that features both brands' names and an eagle motif – giving the collection a distinct sense of vintage Americana.

‘‘I'm incredibly proud of this collaboration,’’ says Marco Falcioni, Senior Vice President Creative Direction for HUGO BOSS. ‘‘As brands, we both want to pave a more sustainable way forward in an industry which is still creating too much waste.”

From the beginning, BOSS and PHIPPS set about to work on responsible fashion. The first drop of BOSS x PHIPPS will be available starting May 25 in BOSS Stores globally and online at hugoboss.com.

“This is the first time we’ve ever worked with another fashion designer,” says Falcioni. “I love what we’ve managed to create. Our clashing aesthetics create a beautiful contradiction– one that has environmental responsibility at its heart.” Spencer Phipps adds: “BOSS opened up its archives and allowed me to do what I love – create clothes with a conscious that lead the industry into a new and more responsible future.”

Founded by Spencer Phipps in 2018 in Paris, PHIPPS is known for its unique aesthetic that brings together new masculine archetypes with an appreciation for craft, quality and sustainability.

The collection

The collaboration features iconic PHIPPS pieces: oversized T-shirts and sweaters, including trippy tie-dye effects and purposely provocative slogans (“Don’t Cross the BOSS”), and technical wear crafted from mixed fabrics.

The clothing has been crafted using more responsible materials and leftover fabrics from the BOSS archives. Some pieces even take sustainable processes one step further: the capsule includes a cargo short and bucket hat recrafted using leftover cotton suits from the brand's storage.
