Cara Delevingne models biobased sequins from Stella McCartney


In London, sustainability-focused fashion designer Stella McCartney has tapped supermodel/actress/brow trendsetter Cara Delevingne to model her brand’s first garment made with plant-derived sequins. Dubbed Biosequins, the sustainable sparkle is achieved through plant-derived cellulose and was developed by a joint collaboration between McCartney and Radiant Matter, a materials innovation company also based in the UK.

The sleeveless jumpsuit modeled by Delevingne is not yet available for sale, but embodies McCartney’s leading efforts in sustainable materials.  “It is so special to see how Stella McCartney has worked with our Biosequins to bring them to life on this beautiful jumpsuit,” Elissa Brunato, founder of Radiant Matter, tells SettingMind. “We have loved her uncompromising approach to sustainability and aesthetics, which are reflected in any decision, down to the fabric and thread choice, resulting in a stunning yet fully plant-derived garment.”
