The coronavirus crisis has certainly not stopped creativity and the launch of new and exciting businesses. This is the case of KAMPOS, the new sustainable brand launched in recent days by entrepreneur Alessandro Vergano, who previously held prominent roles in the world of design and luxury. He was in fact CEO of Tom Dixon and Global Marketing Director of Swarovski.
The idea behind KAMPOS was born from the love of the Mediterranean Sea and its riches and is driven by the desire to preserve these resources in a conscious and responsible way, so that future generations can experience the same wonders that we are surrounded by today.
The name Kampos derives from the Greek Hippo Kampos and translates into Hippocampus, for the ancient Greeks and Romans a symbol of power, riches but also of good luck.
This love extends to materials and the production chain. The proposed garments indeed, which range from beachwear, shirts, t-shirts for men and women, are made of Econyl, regenerated nylon, GOTS certified organic cotton and Newlife, a certified system of 100% recycled polyesters taken from plastic bottles. The product offer also includes perfumes and accessories, including bags, sunglasses and sarongs.
“For Kampos, sustainability is at the center of every single action: from the selection of raw materials, to product development, to packaging and distribution.” Declared CEO Vergano. “Consumers who choose to buy our products act in a socially responsible way.”
The summer 2020 campaign features summer garments immersed in water, to underline the idea of circularity and recycling. The collection is already available in the brand’s e-commerce and it is hoped that this will be accompanied by the opening, scheduled for June, of the first store in Sardinia, the place of foundation of the brand in 2019, more precisely in Porto Cervo, on the famous Promenade Du Port.
Part of the proceeds from the sales will also go to support One Ocean Foundation, the non-profit organization, partner of KAMPOS, founded precisely in Porto Cervo in Sardinia, whose purpose is to promote an eco-sustainable economy and ocean literacy to safeguard the seas.
