Kingpins Shows has signed on PVH Europe as a sponsor of Kingpins’ Most Sustainable Product (MSP) initiative with plans for PVH to produce a collection of garments featuring select MSP fabrics and washes.
PVH will produce the garments in its Amsterdam atelier using fabrics and processes selected by textile engineer and Kingpins technology leader Miguel Sanchez and denim designer and industry consultant Piero Turk. The garments will be washed by Italian finishing machinery maker Tonello. The Most Sustainable Garment collection will be showcased at Kingpins Shows in Amsterdam and New York.
“PVH Europe believes that industry collaboration is crucial for identifying and promoting key sustainable products across the denim supply chain. For this reason, we were excited to lend our support and expertise to Kingpins’ MSP initiative to help create the Most Sustainable Garment collection," said Nicolas Prophte, VP Denim Center, PVH Corp.
Prior to Kingpins shows in Amsterdam and New York, Sanchez reviews sustainable products and processes from Kingpins exhibitors and then meets with companies at the shows to scout additional sustainable innovations.
Kingpins publishes a list of MSP development on its website, Kingpinsshow.com, as a resource for designers and brands looking for the latest sustainable developments to help them make informed choices about their production and their products.
