Sustainable Style
Edition 98
Spencer Phipps, founder of the brand Phipps, is the protagonists of this chapter from the series of video interviews dedicated to the designers of The Sustainable Style. One of the most interesting event-projects of Pitti Uomo 98: a special showcase on eco-sustainability, production ethics, esthetics, style and business which will focus the spotlight on thirteen designers + a special guest who have all embarked upon their own path towards responsible and sustainable fashion.
The video interview is conducted by Giorgia Cantarini, the fashion journalist and independent scouter curator of the project, and directed by Conor Gorman.
Nature and elegance unite. After cutting his teeth at iconic brands Dries van Noten and Marc Jacobs, Spencer Phipps moved to Paris to start his namesake brand, PHIPPS. The Paris-based designer and finalist of the LVMH Prize in 2019, has a passion for rock climbing and outdoor activities which he uses as the brand’s starting point, inspired by the interaction between man and nature. The brand has a strong focus on sustainability and environmental responsibility not only in terms of manufacturing choices but also in the style of the garments themselves:  simple, positive, tuned-in, and GOTS certified. From selecting recycled nylon to the use of alternative energy, every part of the PHIPPS manufacturing process has mother nature in mind.
