Mario Testino Is a Fashion Designer

Shop Mario Testino's First Ever Fashion Collection

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.
