Save the Duck has been busy. Whilst some of us were in bed binge-watching Netflix or trying fruitlessly to pick up a new hobby during the pandemic, Save the Duck has been hard at work crafting its new AW2020-2021 line. The label has been a long-time favourite of Schön!, and today, we’re happy to present some of the latest additions to the Save the Duck family.
For its main collection, the brand returned to its roots, taking its iconic looks and imagining them anew. Focussing on environmental friendliness, the label centred a range of its new pieces around the four elements: Fire, Air, Water and Earth. Each element highlighted another aspect of the label; for example, ‘Fire’ represented heat and thermal efficiency, which was expressed in both the use of bright reds and pinks and incredible protection in extreme conditions down to -20°C. The main collection is also offering an incredible new range of the label’s down jackets, which are made from a synthetic Plumtech® material along with an extensive array of knitwear pieces.
But that’s not all Save the Duck has in store for the coming AW2020-2021 season. In addition to more Pro-Tech pieces, the label is also offering a capsule collection in collaboration with Griffin Studio entitled “Loveland”. Save the Duck is excited about its Pro-Tech line, which the label says was inspired by mountaineer Kuntal Joisher who, in 2019 — and for the first time in history, climbed Everest with a 100% animal-free snowsuit, made together with Save the Duck. As far as “Loveland” is concerned, the Capsule Collection comprises 4 men’s and 4 women’s garments, using recycled materials to blend an urban spirit with outdoor appeal.
Speaking of collaborations, Save the Duck is also presenting a special Limited Edition created with the fashion designer Stella Jean for the AW2020-2021 season. Celebrating women’s empowerment and cultural exchange, the pieces feature vibrant colours, exotic prints and references to Haitian culture — with each piece rooted in recycled materials.
Finally, Save the Duck is also launching ‘We Love Nature’ — the first ever line of completely biodegradable and eco-sustainable outerwear garments. How do they accomplish this? The outer textile, lining and zip for each piece are in 100% NYLON 6.6, while the padding is 90% soy and 10% PLA — and each material has components added that accelerate biodegradability by facilitating bacteria’s access into the fibres’ microscopic structure. All of this is to say that the material biodegrades to over 94% in about 5 years — a truly impressive feat, and yet another detail that keeps us interested and coming back to the label again and again.
