Maisie Williams teamed up with Coperni, the independent French fashion brand co-founded by Arnaud Vaillant and Sebastien meyer, to design vegan apple leather handbags. With the classic from Coperni Slip the bag serving as a starting point, the new collaboration reinvents the brand’s silhouettes for the first time in an alternative leather.
Inspired by the symbolism of the apple in pop culture, as well as the textures of the forest ecosystem, the chemical-free pieces are made from fibers derived from apple waste and elegantly assert that what is good for the planet can also be beautiful.
The collection offers two new styles that can be worn with a removable shoulder strap: the Shoulder Bag, which is available in “Silver” and “Forest” green, and the Mini shoulder bag, which is also available in “Silver” and “Berry”, a rich burgundy. The handbags also come with five customizable metal pins inspired by the fruit labels.
“Coperni and I have been quietly working on our collaboration for some time and I am so proud and excited to finally share what we have created together”, the Game of thrones star said in a press release. “The bags are apple leather and I hope [they] inspire more people to buy and produce with materials that contribute to a more sustainable future.
The founders of Coperni described Maisie as a true inspiration. “From her personality to her various commitments, she is the voice of a generation,” Vaillant and Meyer shared in a statement. âActress, filmmaker, producer, environmentalist. It embodies the strong values ââof a diversified, innovative and responsible future. It was extremely stimulating to co-create these durable and playful Coperni bags together.
The collaboration officially releases November 22, but is available for pre-order now on the Coperni website.
