It's not surprising that after being in the fashion industry for so long, that famed photographer (think Kate and William's official engagement photos), Mario Testino would want to take a moment and show off his talents in front of the lens for once. That's right, the 58 year old Peruvian, has designed a capsule collection of clothing and accessories in collaboration with Vicky Beamon available now on Net-A-Porter. The range includes printed tees, caftans, scarves, handbags and baubles. The name, Mate, has a double meaning. The first is Association Mario Testino and the second refers to his non-profit organisation that aids artists that live in London and Lima to mutually exchange their work.
Created with South America as his inspiration, the designs include on-trend pom poms and an ecclectic colour palette. Buy them while they are still in stock and 20 percent of the proceeds will go towards the Mate charity.
