Editor’s Notes: The universal plight of bees has taken an unfortunate backseat recently, as the Covid-19 pandemic and ensuing uncertainty dominates the attention of the global media. However, bees are still dying at an alarming rate, and considering they contribute to the pollination of one-third of the world’s global food supply, their dwindling number remains a big cause for concern.
To ensure the survival of the endangered species, eco-friendly label PANGAIA has launched the “Bee the Change” initiative with Milkywire, and a new fundraising capsule with Takashi Murakami, who lends his signature flower graphics to tees ($95) and hoodies ($220) made from organic and recycled cotton.
The garments arrive in SS20-ready colorways of orchid, cobalt, and daisy yellow, and are cut to be slightly oversized – so it’s recommended to order one size down if you want a true-to-size fit.
