The Breakup Collection Ilaria Urbinati x The Mighty Company
For our first collaboration, we joined forces with Ilaria Urbinati to create a 3-piece capsule of perfectly-honed jackets, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting Unchained At Last.
Over a conversation about break-ups, Urbinati and The Mighty Company’s Jessie Willner decided to turn their commiseration into the inspiration for the capsule: injecting humor into something natively depressing, by taking concepts like being “lost” and “needing space” and translating them into universe-themed visuals in the jackets. Filled with hand-cut elements and satirical phrases atop metallic and patent leathers, the collection communicates the pair’s proclivity to a brand of slight irony reserved for a woman in command of her own cosmic fate.
What started out as a passion project between friends quickly transformed into a bigger mission. Realizing their own good fortune in having a support system to lean on, they decided to make it about women who don’t. They partnered with Unchained At Last, a nonprofit dedicated to stopping forced and child marriages and helping survivors rebuild their lives. With all of the proceeds from The Breakup Collection being donated to Unchained At Last, The Mighty Company and Ilaria hope to offer women the support they need to rise above their given circumstances. Because freedom of choice is quite a powerful tool in a woman’s hands when given back to her.
