THE SKIN COLLECTION

So-called “nude” underwear traditionally only caters to white skinned individuals, offered in tones like beige or blush, despite the fact that an 84% majority of the world’s population has a skin tone other than the standard “nude” colour. To put the light on this inequality, Björn Borg introduces the Skin Collection – an underwear line in six shades of human, following the Fitzpatrick skin scale*.
 
The collection was launched on the United Nations Racial Discrimination Day on March 21, 2016 through selected stores and through bjornborg.com.

The Skin Collection was awarded with a Gold Lion in Cannes Lions in 2016.
