Doutzen Kroes has teamed up with Canada’s Holt Renfrew to bring awareness to the Elephant Crisis Fund in a new Knot My Planet campaign.
Holt Renfrew commented, “The #knotonmyplanet campaign began as a social media call to action to bring awareness to the ivory poaching crisis by paying homage to one of the elephant’s key characteristics: their memory. To remember something, we traditionally tie a knot, and the campaign turned this practice into a pledge asking everyone to tie knots as a way to remember the elephant.”

The campaign was captured by Chris Colls with makeup by Sil Bruinsma, hair by Panos Papandrianos and the elephant brooch by Tiffany & Co..
