The Mighty Company and Ilaria Urbinati release space-themed breakup collection
today Dec 4, 2018
Luxury jacket brand The Mighty Company has partnered with celebrity stylist Ilaria Urbinati for a capsule collection with a charitable twist, promising to donate 100 percent of the profits to help end forced and child marriage in the United States.
The three-piece jacket capsule, entitled The Breakup Collection, puts a humorous spin on the end of a relationship, taking classic breakup phrase "I need space" literally to create a galaxy-inspired aesthetic. The three jackets; "I Need Space," "Miss Galaxy" and "Lost" feature metallic and patent leathers in pink, silver and black, decorated with playful phrases, hand-cut stars and planets for a celestial effect.
The full collection is available now on The Mighty Company's website, with each jacket retailing at $995.
The theme, which was thought up by The Mighty Company's Jessie Willner and Urbinati, inspired the duo to consider those who are forced or coerced to stay in toxic relationships, and the luxury of choice.
In a press release, the collaborators therefore announced their decision to donate all of The Breakup Collection's profits to Unchained At Last, an organization which works to provide aid and resources to those trapped in forced and child marriages in the United States.
"We realize we are very lucky to have grown up under circumstances wherein we get to make our own choices in our lives: to go after our dreams and the careers we choose, to marry or break up with the partners we choose, to make the decisions we ourselves select," said Urbinati. "So we wanted to help support and empower girls and women who don't have that simple privilege."
The collection's campaign stars actress Lili Reinhart, with photos shot by Willner in The Mighty Company's Los Angeles studio. According to Willner, "the campaign was space cowgirl themed as a tongue-in-cheek embodiment of a wild, independent woman in a galactic setting."
The Mighty Company launched in April of 2016, gaining swift popularity after model Gigi Hadid was spotted in one of the brand's custom leather jackets.
Ilaria Urbinati is known for being a celebrity stylist to stars like Armie Hammer, Bradley Cooper and Rami Malek.
