But there is still a long way to go until Fall/Winter 2024. In February, March, the new Spring/Summer 2024 collections are starting to hit the stores, such as the vegan handbag by Stella McCartney, who presented the line made from grape waste on the runway last year. The Stella McCartney X Veuve Clicquot vegan accessories, bags, shoes are already on the website and will be available in March, according to a recent press release. Using grape material from the Italian company Vegea to make animal-leather free bags is nothing new for the designer known for her commitment to sustainability and ethical fashion. But this time the grapes are Veuve Clicquot waste. Luxury waste. The material, developed over 18 months by Veuve Clicquot, comes from the environmentally certified Grand Cru vineyard of Bouzy in Champagne. The goal of the partnership was to combine sustainability and innovation in fashion. In the press release, Jean-Marc Gallot, CEO of Veuve Clicquot, emphasized the company's commitment to a more responsible future and stated that the collaboration demonstrates Veuve Clicquot's spirit of climate entrepreneurship. For Stella McCartney, the partnership is a highlight of her strategy to combine her cruelty-free vision with Veuve Clicquot's natural ingredients. The bags, shoes and a bottle holder made from waste materials represent a significant step towards sustainable luxury fashion, the designer says. The full range, including platform wedges made from recycled cork from Veuve Clicquot's cellars in Reims, is shown at https://www.stellamccartney.com/at/de/stellas-world/veuve-clicquot-grape-based-vegan-alternative.html.
