The Best Sustainable Fashion Brands & Collaborations
Start shopping more consciously with our pick of the best sustainable fashion brands and collaborations.
The fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world. But, it’s also one that is swiftly transforming.
Stella McCartney told us: “We have to stop and consider the waste, it’s spiralled out of control. I think in order to have sustainability in fashion, you need to think in advance. You need to think about everything in a circular way and in its entirety and at the end of the day a lot of it is about waste, you know, ‘Waste not, want not, do unto the planet as you would have them do unto you’.”
From SKIIM Paris to Sonia Carrasco, there are plenty of slow-fashion brands worth shouting about: labels which understand that quality clothing should be forever kept and recycled, upcycled, or passed onto others via charity shops or re-selling websites. As part of our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint and encouraging you to do the same, we’ve researched and rounded up the best sustainable fashion, footwear and accessory brands to support, who ensure they are being as sustainable as possible.
Sustainable Brand Collaborations to Invest in Now
The North Face X Gucci
Luxury Italian fashion house Gucci has teamed up with the outerwear experts at North Face to create an eclectic and colourful collection which encourages adventure and outdoor exploration. Hence, the 70s-inspired collaboration campaign was shot in the Alps, in which a group of voguish hikers can been seen wandering across a range of breathtaking backdrops. Featuring the likes of practical and vibrant puffer coats, backpacks, The North Face X Gucci logo-embossed hiking boots, as well as a range of stylish tents and sleeping bags, the highly anticipated collection has taken into account a number of environmental factors; luggage has been designed using ECONYL®, a nylon fabric crafted from regenerated materials, whilst paper and cardboard packaging has been sustainably sourced, and is fully recyclable. The TNF x Gucci collection will be sold in UK exclusively at London Selfridges (throughout the month of January, from the 4th until the 30th). London Selfridges will have a special Pre- Launch on Jan 2nd, 3rd, being the first store to sell the collection in Europe.
HRH The Prince of Wales & YOOX NET A PORTER GROUP
HRH The Prince of Wales’ charity, The Prince’s Foundation has partnered with fashion retailer YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP to launch a new capsule collection of luxury sustainable womenswear and menswear. Titled The Modern Artisan project, the 18-piece collection has been crafted by young artisans and students from both Italy and the UK, a fusion of British and Italian heritage and artistry in an initiative which seeks to provide a platform for young and aspiring artisans. Prince Charles said of the collection, “I’ve been enormously impressed by the efforts, the ideas and the vision shown by the artisans from the UK and Italy. Hopefully they will take away a great deal of skill and understanding of sustainable approaches to design and manufacturing that they can apply to their own businesses or future careers. The key for me is to rediscover the importance that nature plays, understand where natural materials come from and how they can be used in exciting and innovative ways. After all, nature is the source of everything.” net-a-porter.com
