Stella Jean collaborates with Pinko for a more sustainable fashion world

Words by Cristiana Frunza

In 2018 Pinko initiatied the Treedom campaign, a project which allows people to plant a tree with a simple click. The goal behind the project was to give birth to the PINKO forest in Kenya which includes fruit trees like mango, banana, African cherry, avocado and macadamia. The PINKO forest allows to feed and support the local community in the area.

The project was extended when two ethical fashion brands, PINKO and Stella Jean came together. Known for years, Stella Jean has always been in the creation of a more sustainable fashion model through constant and concrete work.

The #StellaJeanPINKOtreedom collaboration released a capsule collection of five t-shirts designed by the Italo-Haitian stylist and produced by PINKO with special attention to sustainability. They revolve around these key issues: sustainability, reforestation, multiculturalism and international cooperation.

We all know being eco-friendly and living consciously is a must nowadays, so why not join the cause? Each piece is made from organic cotton and printed with watercolours. To connect the people with the PINKO forrest the illustrations, embroideries and motifs are all inspired by the Masai culture in Kenya. This gives a feeling of belonging, changing and supporting.

The t-shirts will be available from April.

Kristen Stewart Has Been ‘Brutal’ To Stella Maxwell As She Moves On With Sarah Dinkin

Kristen Stewart is loving her new romance with Sarah Dinkin and her ex Stella Maxwell can’t stand it. An insider revealed that Stewart and Maxwell agreed to keep their dating lives private following their split, but the Twilight alum ignored the pact and went public with Dinkin right away.

Maxwell and Stewart have had their share of problems, but the model is reportedly shocked by how Stewart has acted.

“[Maxwell has] been knocked sideways at how brutal Kristen’s been,” a source shared.

A source told Radar Online that Stewart and Maxwell have many mutual friends, who are now choosing sides because they refuse to talk anymore.One friend even believes that Maxwell might make a move on Robert Pattinson just to get back at Stewart.

From Stewart’s perspective, she reportedly believes that Maxwell was using her to get famous. This is why she had no problem going public with Dinkin as soon as their romance heated up.

Her friends tried to warn her about Maxwell’s intentions, but she did not believe them until things turned south.

Stewart and Maxwell have not been seen together since October. The actress is believed to have gone public with Dinkin a week after she officially ended things with Maxwell.

So far, Stewart’s romance with Dinkin is going strong. Sources claim the two spend every day together and that Stewart is genuinely having fun with the stylist.

With things going so well, Stewart is already joking about moving in together.

This week, Stewart and Dinkin were spotted walking their dogs in Los Angeles. The pair rocked similar outfits for the outing, which consisted of white sweatshirts and sweatpants.The two completed their look with sunglasses while Stewart added a hat for good measure.

Prior to Dinkin and Maxwell, Stewart dated Alicia Cargile, Soko and St. Vincent.

She also dated Pattinson for four years before their relationship ended amid her affair with Rupert Sanders.

Kristen Stewart has not commented on her new romance.
