Luxury Outerwear Brand Cape de Coeur Moves into the Metaverse with 1st NFTs

Cape de Coeur

Vancouver-based elevated, technical outerwear brand Cape de Coeur, in tandem with digital artist Tony Murray & renowned creative director Isabel Martinez (Isabelita Virtual), is excited to announce the launch of their capsule collection of three, one-of-one edition NFTs, linked to three of their Guardian capes - their signature cape design. Cape de Coeur, Murray, and Martinez worked together to visualize, design and produce a special digital artwork video, titled “The Guardian”, that they then used to create the unique non-fungible tokens. Bettina Mueller Reichl - Founder and Creative director of Cape de Coeur - met Isabelita Virtual during the last months of 2020. Bettina had been a dedicated follower of Isabelita's work, admiring different projects and partnerships Isabelita had participated in with some of Bettina’s favorite brands and publications, such as Delpozo, Viktor & Rolf, and Vogue Italia. Bettina reached out to Isabelita in hopes of partnering on a digital activation that could introduce Cape de Coeur to the world and build awareness around it. Isabel loved the concept, innovation, technology, and creativity behind Cape de Coeur. She understood what Cape de Coeur is at its core: a high fashion luxury brand, designing waterproof capes. She wanted to produce a piece of digital art that would break boundaries, as the product does itself - through technology. She suggested contacting Tony Murray, a digital creator with specific expertise working in the fashion industry, to design a ‘universe’ that represents all that is Cape de Coeur. Murray’s efforts resulted in a surprising piece, complete with a surreal outdoors built into a futuristic world, where even among the 3D ‘women’ featured in the video, the rain remains the main character. It starts raining - but the rain doesn’t touch the women, as if they are protected by invisible, unseen umbrellas. “The first thing that struck me about Cape de Coeur was the striking silhouettes of the capes. I wanted to model the capes in the realm of the unreal, but in a virtual environment that highlighted and didn’t distract from or compete with the capes...The design of the environments was quite minimal, letting the reflective materials and the dynamic skies do the work of spotlighting and quite literally reflecting the capes. The Cape de Coeur pieces are truly the merging of fashion and function with waterproof performance fabric, so the images of water droplets beading up on ther surface sparked the use of orbs throughout the scenes. And of course, rain became an important graphic element." - Tony Murray, Digital Creator Cape de Coeur, Tony Murray and Isabelita Virtual’s digital art video aims to ‘conquer’ the weather in an experimental way. The characters in the work are identifiably ‘women’ but remain ambiguous in all other characteristics - a purposeful choice to help build a connection between the brand and the viewers. ‘ The Guardian ’ is a futuristic and romantic universe, a unique piece of artwork linked to an exclusive product - Cape de Coeur’s first NFTs. “Cape de Coeur is a perfect example of a contemporary brand that talks to its audience in a contemporary way. Today’s most advanced brands are fully engaged through technology. Most of them use it to develop new products, but some also to build culture and share values with their audiences. Cape de Coeur is a disruptive label that brings fresh air to the rainwear landscape, merging reason and emotion.” - Isabelita Virtual, Creative Director The values of the Cape de Coeur brand - innovation, creativity, romanticism, technology, futurism - immediately aligned with the values of Tony and Isabelita’s respective worlds. Bettina, Tony and Isabelita wanted to create a piece of ‘communication’- but also a piece of digital art, one that would make a long-lasting impact. All three creatives share the same ambition - to break boundaries in their work through technology. All Cape de Coeur pieces are available to purchase online, directly from the brand’s website. Prices range from $995-$2,195 Click HERE for more information on ‘The Guardian’ NFTs For more information on Cape de Coeur, please visit https://capedecoeur.com and @capedecoeur ABOUT Cape de Coeur: Cape de Coeur is luxury technical outerwear designed to redefine your wardrobe and your lifestyle.

Save the Redwoods League Buys Lost Coast Redwoods, the Longest Stretch of Privately Owned Shoreline in the Coast Redwood Range

Save the Redwoods League

Save the Redwoods League today announced that it has purchased the 3,181-acre Lost Coast Redwoods property in Mendocino County from timberland owner Soper Company for $36.9 million. After negotiating the rare opportunity to protect 5 miles of privately owned coastline in November 2021, the League raised $19 million in private donations from 4,884 individuals and foundations from across the United States and 10 other countries. Raising this much funding in less than two months is a record for the nonprofit organization. Loans and other financing enabled the League to finalize the purchase in the seller’s required timeframe. The League will continue fundraising in 2022, seeking public and private funding to repay the loans and support the permanent protection, restoration and stewardship of the property. Leading that effort is a new challenge grant from the Goodman Family Foundation that will match new donations dollar-for-dollar up to $1 million through March 31. “Adding 5 miles of spectacular shoreline and thousands of acres of redwood forest to California’s protected coast is an extraordinary investment in our future,” said Sam Hodder, president and CEO of Save the Redwoods League. “With people from around the world offering their generous support, it’s clear that the public cares deeply about the beauty and wildness of California’s coastline and redwood forests.” “Now that we have removed the immediate threat of timber harvesting and development,” Hodder continued, “the work begins to complete the conservation vision, secure full funding and work with our tribal, state and federal partners to add this land to the protected mosaic of California’s Lost Coast.” With the purchase of the property, the League can now begin to restore the former timberland, explore opportunities to expand public access to the famed Lost Coast and identify a permanent steward. About Lost Coast Redwoods The 3,181-acre Lost Coast Redwoods property includes 5 miles of shoreline and an expansive 2,250-acre forest. Though most of the property had been aggressively logged in prior decades, second-growth coast redwoods, Douglas-fir and grand fir ranging in age from 80 to 100 years, make up a significant portion of the forest, with large old-growth trees scattered throughout. The property supports abundant habitat for coho salmon and steelhead trout, culturally and ecologically important species that are protected under the Endangered Species Act. This property is also home to Roosevelt elk, black-tailed deer and mountain lions. Offshore, the recently designated Double Cone Rock State Marine Conservation Area buffers this sensitive coastline and protects sea lions and other marine life along the undeveloped shoreline. The islands offshore, including Vizcaino Rock, support more than 11,500 nesting seabirds. Potential Future Public Access Along the Lost Coast Protection of Lost Coast Redwoods and its 5 miles of iconic California coastline at the southern gateway to the 57-mile-long undeveloped Lost Coast is a critical investment in California’s biodiversity, climate resilience and equitable access to nature. Lost Coast Redwoods is adjacent to the League’s Shady Dell property and within a quarter-mile of its Cape Vizcaino property. This connectivity offers the potential for the League and its partners to expand public access in the area and extend the famed Lost Coast Trail southward from Shady Dell. *** The public can learn more about Lost Coast Redwoods and donate to support its protection and stewardship on the Save the Redwoods League website. To access hi-res images, b-roll or drone footage of the Lost Coast Redwoods property, please visit the League’s online newsroom. To schedule an interview, contact Robin Carr at (415) 971-3991 or redwoods@landispr.com. Save the Redwoods League One of the nation’s longest-running conservation organizations, Save the Redwoods League has been protecting and restoring redwood forests since 1918. The League has connected generations of visitors with the beauty and serenity of the redwood forest. The nonprofit’s 29,000 members have enabled the organization to protect more than 216,000 acres of irreplaceable forest in 66 state, national and local parks and reserves.

MEDIA ALERT: More than $15 Million Raised Toward Permanent Protection of Lost Coast Redwoods Property

Save the Redwoods League

Save the Redwoods League has raised more than $15 million since it announced plans to purchase Lost Coast Redwoods. The 3,181-acre property spans 5 miles of rugged, undeveloped Northern California coastline in Mendocino County, and it has an expansive coast redwood forest of more than 2,250 acres. “We are inspired by the outpouring of generosity and enthusiasm for protecting Lost Coast Redwoods, a place that will be an iconic part of California’s landscape for generations to come,” said Sam Hodder, president and CEO of Save the Redwoods League. “Raising $15 million from supporters from across the country in a matter of weeks is a record for our organization. But we can’t rest on our laurels just yet. I invite everyone who shares our commitment to a healthy future for the redwoods and the California coast to help us reach this ambitious goal by December 31st.” Save the Redwoods League secured an agreement to purchase the Lost Coast Redwoods property for $36.9 million, and it is seeking to raise a total of $43.4 million in public and private funding in support of the acquisition, restoration and stewardship of the property. News of this rare opportunity has inspired thousands of individuals across the U.S. and from six different countries, including New Zealand, Ecuador, Canada, Great Britain and Australia to make contributions towards the purchase. Several supporters have made commitments of $1 million or more. Fundraising will continue through and beyond December 31. The property supports abundant habitat for coho salmon and steelhead trout, culturally and ecologically important species that are protected under the Endangered Species Act. This property is also home to Roosevelt elk, black-tailed deer and mountain lions.
