Doutzen Kroes Says Ambassador Role For #Knot On My Planet Gives Her Sense Of Purpose

Supermodel Doutzen Kroes didn’t just become an activist two years ago, but the Dutch superstar model, mom, wife, design collaborator and activist for humanity tells Vanity Fair that it’s her role as global ambassador for #Knot on My Planet that gives her a tremendous sense of purpose.

Vanity Fair checked in with Kroes before shooting the new #Knot on My Planet campaign with Naomi Campbell and Serena Williams also part of the production. The Knot on My Planet elephant conservation effort gained momentum when Reed Krakoff became chief artistic officer of Tiffany & Co. last year. The new collection will expand beyond elephants to also include rhino and lion pieces.

Tiffany has partnered with the Elephant Crisis Fund on the #KnotOnMyPlanet campaign, launching an initial campaign featuring Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington Burns, Naomi Campbell and other prominent voices tying a knot to never forget elephants under threat from ivory poachers.

LOEWE and Knot On My Planet joins forces today to launch a limited edition collection of their iconic Elephant Mini Bag in tan, in support of the Elephant Crisis Fund (ECF)—a joint initiative between Save The Elephants (STE) and WCN, in partnership with the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.

Knot On My Planet is closely associated with supermodel Doutzen Kroes, who hasbecome one of the loudest voices in elephant conservation, whose mission is to put an end to the ivory crisis and elephant extinction. When Kroes first visited Samburu, Kenya, and interacted with the elephant population there, she said she knew she needed to take action in the form of a long-term commitment to protecting severely-threatened elephants in Africa.

If we educate people about the crisis, if we share more stories and make this bigger, I feel positive that African elephants will be here for our children to see in the wild. We have to stay hopeful for the future, always.” – Doutzen Kroes

Doutzen Kroes Takes 'A New Direction' In Activism, Lensed By Sebastian Kim For The Edit Sept. 21, 2017

Supermodel Doutzen Kroes is turning her focus to acting, writes Jane Mulkerrins in her Doutzen interview for The Edit September 21, 2017. Kroes fronts 'A New Direction', lensed by Sebastian Kim in looks styled by Tracy Taylor.

The Dutch supermama also talks activism and saving elephants, a Doutzen Kroes passion that we've tracked religiously, considering AOC's own passion to saving elephants. 

Kroes hung up her Victoria's Secret angel wings in 2014, but has maintained lucrative contracts with brands such as Tiffany & Co. and L'Oreal.  Kroes' #KnotOnMyPlanet just launched its second collection with Tiffany's Save the Wild collection to the Elephant Crisis Fund). A Kroes posse of VIPs including Cara Delevingne, Joan Smalls and Candice Swanepoel wear the jewelry.

The elephant is hopefully sleeping, but given Doutzen's work on behalf of African elephants, she could be dead. Elephants sleep at night and generally standing up. And they only sleep for two hours in the wild. The image (further down) has no real provocation as presented.
