Le Bambole x Stella McCartney
The Stella McCartney x B&B Italia capsule collection (armchair, two-seater sofa and three-seater sofa) is marking the British conscious pioneer’s first-ever interiors collaboration. The sofas feature a hand-drawn “Fungi Forest” print upholstery pulled from the Stella McCartney Summer 2022 runway collection and a responsible construction inspired by shared sustainability values. The collaboration was successfully introduced at Stella McCartney’s “Future of Fashion” material innovation installation during Milan Design Week in June 2022. The partnership was born of Stella’s long-time personal passion for Bellini’s works and celebrates Le Bambole’s 50th anniversary. Made with circularity in mind, the new Le Bambole is designed to be fully disassembled - allowing for easier repairs and the most responsible use of materials at the end of life. The Stella McCartney x B&B Italia capsule also introduces a new sustainable innovation exclusively developed by the design company’s R&D team: Le Bambole’s upholstery is a 100% biodegradable and toxin-free polyester leaving no harmful microplastics in the environment.
