Through this collaboration, the brand continues its narrative of up-cycling, coordinated by Pinko’s creative director, Caterina Negra.





The two creatives have presented a series of iconic looks by utilising past season and archive fabrics. “Sustainability is at the heart of this collection, using fabrics from the Pinko archives, recycled and organic qualities and making the pieces in Italy close to Pinko headquarters to reduce its carbon footprint,” explained McDowell.

Mixing early '90s pop culture with the artistry of Royal French Courts of the 1700s, the collection offers interesting new looks for the modern era. Deeply personal family images from both the Pinko family and Patrick’s own, are reflected upon as a main source of creativity for the collection with core prints created from a montage of vintage frames along with masculine tailoring mixed with beautiful corsetry inspiration for this capsule collection available in selected Pinko stores and through Pinko.com from November 2022. 





The unveiling of the new capsule collection also coincides with Pinko's partnering with Central Saint Martins, the esteemed London art school. Committed to making a positive impact for the future, Pinko is introducing a "Pinko Scholarship at Central Saint Martins".
