Material science brand PANGAIA and South Korean-born, Virginia-based designer VANDYTHEPINK have announced a new limited-edition capsule collection dedicated to preserving forest lands worldwide. The collaborative line marks PANGAIA's continued year-round commitment to partnering with communities and changemakers with shared values rooted in conscious shopping.

VANDYTHEPINK, who went viral for his vivid, tongue-in-cheek clothing and sneakers interpretations, drew inspiration from PANGAIA's material ethos of high-tech naturalism fused with his signature graphics to conceptualize new designs exclusive to this collection.

"When PANGAIA and Nordstrom approached us to work on this project, we were excited from the beginning to get this project going," VANDY expressed in a statement to V. "We are inspired by PANGAIA's messaging and sustainable technology, so it was meaningful and special for us to incorporate our brand values and art into this special collection to celebrate Earth Day. Seeing a brand dedicate itself to improving the environment has allowed us to learn and grow throughout this experience and we hope the collaboration influences others too!"

The collection features three principal styles: the 365 hoodie, accompanying 365 track pants in sand and chestnut brown hues, and a t-shirt in an off-white shade. These pieces also incorporate a singular, distinctive quote in place of its signature text block "Trees act as the lungs of our planet. We must plant, protect, and restore them. Nurture, embrace, and bloom together with the earth."

In support of the current global humanitarian crisis, Nordstrom and PANGAIA are also donating to

Direct Relief, a nonprofit providing medical aid to Ukraine and surrounding countries.

PANGAIA x VANDYTHEPINK capsule collection is available now exclusively on PANGAIA's official website. On April 16th, the line will be available at Nordstrom.com and New Concepts at Nordstrom locations across the United States and Canada.
