Recently, Glastonbury Festival and Stella McCartney have announced the release of a special, limited edition upcycled vest to be sold in support of War Child’s Emergency Fund which is helping children caught in Ukraine, and other conflicts.
Inspired by ‘70s T-shirts
In 2007, Stella McCartney designed a limited-edition vest which was sold for charity at that year’s Glastonbury Festival. The design, which features a blue sky, green field and psychedelic rainbow, was inspired by the seventies airbrushed t-shirts her mum and dad used to get made.
The vest has gone on to become a rare collector’s item, but a recent warehouse audit unveiled several boxes of vests which had not been sold.
Original vests have now been upcycled and repurposed
Staying true to Stella McCartney’s ethos and principles to reduce our impact on the planet the original vests have now been upcycled and repurposed with a new mushroom artwork celebrating fungi as the future of fashion and our planet.
These limited edition vests of Stella McCartney are on sale, via Glastonbury’s official online shop, with all proceeds going to war child’s emergency fund. Ukraine Appeal – Stella McCartney x Glastonbury Limited Edition Upcycled Vest
