Tiger Beer, Kenzo and WWF turn big cats' stripes into fashion

The brands and the wildlife NGO, along with Marcel Sydney, collaborated with emerging artists to create a unique clothing collection that raises awareness about the plight of wild tigers.

In partnership with WWF and Kenzo, Tiger Beer unveiled the 'Rare Stripes' clothing collection at the Kenzo store at Ginza Six in Tokyo last week. The agency behind the campaign is Marcel Sydney.

The co-creative directors of Kenzo, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, worked with four handpicked young artists to create the limited-edition collection. The project involved a trip to Cambodia, where the four artists (hailing from Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore and the United States) heard about the plight of wild tigers from Phurba Lendhup, a WWF Wildlife Specialist from Bhutan. 

A launch event provided a preview of the eight unique designs available for sale in the collection, which were displayed using coat hangers fashioned out of snare wire used in poaching.

All proceeds from the sale of the collection will go to WWF in support of its goal of doubling the world’s wild tiger population. This is the second year of a six-year partnership between Tiger Beer and WWF (see "Tiger Beer sinks teeth into big-cat conservation").

Ad Nut hopes never to encounter a wild tiger face-to-face, but would be greatly saddened if the noble beasts ceased to exist.
