Lisa of BLACKPINK turned heads on Sunday as she stopped in Monaco wearing a set that was made from completely recycled materials.

While being surrounded by yachts and the ultra-rich, Lisa — whose full name is Lalisa Manobal — opted for a cropped set that was both showstopping and sustainable. The pop star wore a custom outfit made of 80% upcycled water bottle caps and 20% clear food containers from the emerging Thai brand PIPATCHARA.

Lisa shared a series of photos of the outfit with her more than 103 million followers on Instagram while stopping by the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix. Lisa paired the look with nude strappy heels and a Louis Vuitton mini bag. She captioned the post, “Pit stop in Monaco,” and showed off her pouty dark makeup and fringe.

The Bangkok-based brand PIPATCHARA was started by sisters Pipatchara and Jittrinee Kaeojinda, who wanted to create a community-focused, sustainable brand at a time when fast fashion is becoming an increasingly harmful practice. Not only has the brand dressed big names such as Anne Hathaway, Olivia Rodrigo, and Lupita Nyong'o, but they also work to teach their communities about sustainable practices and living.

"We knew that teaching crafting skills was a way to help supplement incomes and to create a truly sustainable, community-focused lifestyle brand which was important to us," Pipatchara said in a press release.

Many brands and consumers have taken steps to try and curb the ever-growing piles of garments that end up in landfills and are dumped onto the shores of other countries by creating products with recycled or sustainably sourced materials. Lisa sharing an upcycling brand with her millions of followers and fans will hopefully inspire others to start purchasing clothing secondhand or from brands that are taking the climate crisis seriously.
