DHL teams up with Mykke Hofmann and design competition winners for Forever Collection

DHL and Munich-based fashion label Mykke Hofmann have launched a fashion capsule collaboration, created from a design competition announced last autumn.

The collection, called Forever Pieces, is made up of six designs that were chosen from a total of 2,375 that were submitted. The pieces are accompanied by a warranty certificate in the form of a climate neutral NFT, which extends the wearability of the clothing through certain repairs.

The collection includes a trench coat designed by Marta Soloducha, a fashion student from Warsaw, which is versatile and can be worn also as a blazer or skirt when detached.

Micaela Clubourg, an up-and-coming designer from Argentina, is another winner and designed a co-ord set with the trousers featuring a non-waste design with no fabric wasted in production.

Other contributors include Gaia Stollo from Italy, who contributed a classic pair of trouser, Yolanda Patricia Cabarcas, a native of Colombia who designed a blouse, and Camilla Pane from Italy, who designed a transitional little black dress.

Winners were further awarded £850 in prize money.

The pieces are all produced alongside Mykke Hofmann’s existing collection in a factory in Serbia where garment workers are fairly compensated and treated well.

Arjan Sissing, Global Head of Brand Marketing at DHL: "Forever Pieces represents everything we associate with our vision of positive fashion. This competition stands for sustainability and thus unites themes such as sustainable production, circularity and fair production conditions with long-lasting fashion."

Jelena Hofmann, founder and CEO of Mykke Hofmann: “The feedback from the competition exceeded all our expectations in terms of both quantity and quality. The response shows how deeply the concept of sustainability is anchored in the up-and-coming fashion community.”

The co-created collection will be available from May 16, 2022, on Mykke Hofmann's website, with all proceeds going to the non-profit organisation SOS Children’s Villages, which focuses on supporting children without parental care and families at risk.
