A true believer in the defence of heartfelt causes such as ecology and social welfare, Nadege understands the intrinsic, multi-faceted relationship between fashion and the environment.
The talented creative approached Timberland with the request of breathing a second life into the iconic classic yellow boot – a personal favourite – to create something that was both fashion-forward and environmentally-aware.
