Barneys' environmental campaign "Go Green Go" has joined forces with British model, fashion designer, and cycling aficionado Agyness Deyn on a collection of sustainable clothing. A portion of proceeds will be donated towards the planting of trees in inner Mongolia, WWD reports. The collection consists of 11 items; dresses, knits, scarves, t-shirts, and leggings, and prices range from $212 to $307, click through for a preview of the collection:
The line will debut this Friday at the opening of Barneys new store in Kobe and will be sold at Barneys' Shinjuku location in Tokyo beginning March 13.
We are happy to hear Barneys "Go Green Go" campaign is going strong and expanding to Japan, though--as Refinery29 notes--these garments look hardly wearable by an average-size woman (more fitting on a six-foot model). What do you think of the designs? Tell us in the comments section, below.
