Hyundai Motor has launched the third annual iteration of “Re:Style,” an upcycling fashion project that uses materials discarded during the automobile manufacturing process and illuminates the company’s sustainable enterprise beyond the automotive industry.
The Re:Style 2021 is launched in Seoul and Paris by partnering with fashion select shops L’Eclaireur and Boontheshop. The unique collaboration involving the three companies highlights Hyundai Motor’s ever-growing commitment to eco-friendly manufacturing, creative outside collaboration and engagement with the environmentally conscious consumers.
In particular, Hyundai Motor’s partnerships with L’Eclaireur and Boontheshop reflect the two fashion companies’ shared commitment to eco-friendly production and offering of easily accessible and wearable fashion items.
“With the third annual celebration of Re:Style this year, Hyundai Motor continues its dedication to facilitate the ‘progress for humanity,’ its brand vision and objective,” said Thomas Schemera, Global Chief Marketing Officer and Head of the Customer Experience Division of Hyundai Motor.
“As a company in charge of fashion distribution, we have always had concerns about the impact of discarded clothing materials on our planet Earth,” said Michael Hadida, CEO of L’Eclaireur.
“So, by reusing the wearable pieces from automobile manufacturing and channelling the generated profits into other projects, we hope to create a virtuous cycle of sustainability and uniquely contribute to saving our planet.”
