Stephen Webster’s Last Straw

Designer Stephen Webster’s seemingly boundless creativity, married to a long-term commitment to environmental responsibility, has culminated in the launch of his latest project: The Last Straw. In response to the fact that UK alone uses mind-boggling 8.5 billion straws every year, which are among the top 10 items found in beach clean-ups and take over 200 years to break down, Stephen has created the last straw that anyone will ever possibly need in their lives. Beautifully handcrafted in sterling silver, a perfect material known for its anti-bacterial qualities, each straw will be numbered and hand engraved with the owner’s name followed by the engraved statement: Last Straw. Commenting on the launch, Stephen said, “This initiative is our brand taking a stand for social responsibility. It is well known that I personally have love of all things aquatic and as a consequence, over the years have taken part in several clean ocean and water initiatives. It’s important that no matter how small we play a part in preserving our oceans.”

At COUTURE, a handful of lucky editors and retailers will be presented with their very own Last Straw, engraved with their name, and they’ll be celebrating this latest launch in a private party in the Stephen Webster ballroom (Latache 2) on Thursday evening. Leave it to Stephen to make being environmentally conscientious  so damned chic!
