This week, Conner Ives launches his official Depop shop, with a capsule collection of upcycled accessories and RTW clothing available to purchase exclusively on Depop.
Designed and produced in London, the collection includes a two piece t-shirt and skirt set featuring hand-drawn motifs, alongside bracelets and necklaces made with Murano glass beads and pendants. Crafted with sustainability at its core, the collection has been produced in a limited run and will be exclusively available on the official Conner Ives Depop shop.
The launch comes as part of a wider partnership between Depop and the esteemed designer to bring upcycled, exclusive pieces to the platform’s fashion-conscious users, and show that what’s old can be made new again. Since 2021, Depop users have given a second life to 25 million items that already existed*, and enabled tens of thousands of individuals to make an income from circular fashion.
Earlier this year, Conner partnered with some of Depop’s incredible sellers to source bulk raw material for his SS24 collection ‘Late Capitalism’, elevating the identity of re-generated items which were shown on a virtual runway during London Fashion Week, modelled by muse Alex Consani.
Conner Ives says, “With all my work, I aim to confront the fast fashion cycle head-on - returning to craft and the concept of making clothes with friends, for friends. As a lover and advocate of circular fashion, I’m so proud to launch my exclusive RTW Depop capsule collection, offering fashion fans a taste of Conner Ives and making truly circular garments a bit more accessible.”
Steve Dool, Director of Brand and Marketing at Depop, says; "Young designers are a critical part of fashion’s future, and we’re so excited to partner with Conner Ives to bring unique circular fashion to our community. Making circular fashion more accessible is at the core of what we do at Depop, and we hope through this collaboration we can reach and inspire more people to look to different fashion options that are kinder to the planet.”
