Amber Valletta isn’t your average supermodel-actress-environmentalist. Together with Yooxygen, the green offshoot of online retailer Yoox, the multihyphenate clotheshorse has edited a collection of stylish clothing and accessories from brands that are as innovative as they are environmentally responsible. Available from September 17, “Master & Muse” will include sustainable jeans by Goodsociety, organic knits from M.Patmos, recycled-leather moto jackets from The Sway, handmade shoes from Guava, and zero-waste jumpsuits by Daniel Silverstein’s 100% NY label. “We really looked at the brands and made sure what they do is right,” Valletta told Vogue in August.
Valletta isn’t Yooxygen’s first celebrity curator. In July 2012, “Green Carpet Challenge” mastermind Livia Firth, wife of Oscar-winning actor Colin Firth, oversaw a “shop within a shop” featuring four of her own designs.
