Founded in 2014 by Creative Director Luca Armenia, whose love for animals led him to create a fashion brand that would give a third of profits to their conservation, there are two distinct sides to the Lupo & Wolf brand: wild/dangerous or gentle/elegant.
The debut collection has a rock ‘n’ roll meets preppy look with styles ranging from statement necklaces to studded bangles.
Driven by an unwavering dedication to animal conservation, Lupo & Wolf strives to create unique and timeless jewellery, inspired by the unique fusion of nature, wildlife, and beauty. All activity is underpinned by a desire to serve as a major sponsor of conservationalists around the Globe. However, the sad reality is that today, many animal species’ are dangerously close to extinction, as a result of reckless human behaviour and selfishness.
As a brand, we believe that it is our moral duty to do what we can, and start by giving the animals their rightful habitat back. To make this dream a reality, vast funds are required to buy back and regain the lost land, as well as to provide further resources for existing parks. National Parks are under threat by humans living in the surrounding areas, not to mention the ongoing battles fought against ruthless poachers.
Our belief is, that in addition to charitable organisations who rely on good will and donations, there are other ways to raise awareness and most importantly, the finances required to support this positive activity – such as a radical integration and involvement of the market economy. One such way could be to support “Animal Copyright”: the images of animals which are exploited by big brands around the world (Puma, Jaguar, Caterpillar to name a few). These brands do not pay for the privilege of associating their products with the animals themselves, but when a brand uses a celebrity ambassador to endorse its product or service, that person would of course be handsomly renumerated. Why then, should a corporation not pay an animal, which it bases its core values and I.P. on.
We believe that every brand that uses creatures or wildlife as part of its name, logo or marketing, should find a way of financially aiding those animals they are depicting – for the privilege of exploitation. It is for this exact reason that Lupo and Wolf donates 1/3 of its profits to this innovative conservation programme.
1/3 of Lupo & Wolf's profits will be donated to animal & habitat conservation schemes
