Stella McCartney’s New Collection Was Shot In A Landfill

Sustainable fashion advocate Stella McCartney’s Winter 2017 collection was created using organic cotton, sustainably sourced viscose, recycled nylon and cruelty free skin-free-skin.

But the designer wanted to take the sustainability message one step further by shooting the collection against the backdrop of a landfill in Scotland.

The collaboration with artist Urs Fischer and photographer Harley Weir, was to highlight the enormous amount of waste we produce and question what we are leaving behind for future generations.

“The idea we had with this campaign is to portray who we want to be and how we carry ourselves; our attitude and collective path. Our man-made constructed environments are disconnected and unaware of other life and the planet which is why there is waste.” – Stella
