Mario Testino X Net-A-Porter

Online, luxury retailer, Net-A-Porter and famed, fashion photographer, Mario Testino are collaborating on an exclusive collection of clothing, jewelry, and bags.  The collection is based on one of the photographer's book, where local Peruvians are wearing traditional attire.  Holli Rogers, Net-A-Porter's Fashion Director, states "We fell in love with Mario's incredible book of photographs, and we knew we  had to collaborate with him somehow."

The collection consists of caftans, t-shirts, clutches, and jewelry... and unlike most of the other merchandise on the site, these pieces will be fairly accessible with prices like $150 for a clutch and $210 for t-shirts.  As well, Testino has set up a non-profit organization, MATE, to help support and promote the arts in his home country.  20% of the proceeds from the collaboration will go to MATE.

The collaboration will be available on the website beginning June.
