Sustainability” defines the human capacity to meet “the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. It is a challenge that is not limited to production methods but also implies a greater focus on the environment overall.

Equilibrium must be restored, beginning with a more aware and shared way of thinking that is capable of engendering new strategies of development and co-existence. The aim of the Sustainable Thinking project is to make people reflect on these themes through visions of art and fashion. Numerous artists are looking at sustainability, some focusing on recovering our relationship with nature, the use of organic materials, the need for a creative re-use of materials or relations between nature and technology, while others are looking at the importance of a collective commitment to refounding society overall.

The fashion industry, for its part, embarked upon the path towards sustainability some years ago, not just through a new generation of designers but also through innovative approaches adopted by luxury brands with a consolidated market presence, using new high-performance ecological materials and optimizing production processes.
