Evian is an iconic brand with a strong heritage in fashion and creativity. Its sustainability ambitions align with my own. Together we can push boundaries and explore new areas of revolution, paving a better future for generations globally.

In addition to developing circular design products Abloh will “use his wide-scale platform to engage his massive social media audience to raise awareness around the importance of innovation in design and sustainability” according to an Evian representative.
