Today’s curated collection of sustainable sartorial finds features some of the more ethically minded from across the pond…

Girl on Fire eco purse_1.jpg

(above) We’re crushing on the Girl on Fire limited ed Nancy purse by artist, Olivier Millagou. What’s it made of? Upcycled fire-hose was used as the exterior fabric, and the lining is reclaimed parachute silk. The purse unfolds to reveal smartly designed nooks for safely storing cash, coin and cards.  £120.00

(above L to R) We’ve got an eye on Danish-based Noir, poised to relaunch in 2012. Committed to fair trade and utilizing organic cotton, we’re hoping they keep their edge … pieces, above, from A/W 2011/12.

viv_westwood.jpg(above L to R) Fashion forward Vivienne Westwood is always one of the first to get it.

A perfect example of her fun, witty approach to style: her limited edition, fair trade certified organic cotton t-shirt dress made by People Tree for Marie Claire.

Emblazoned with Trees Save Lives, and signed by Viv herself, it has eco fashion written all over it … (couldn’t help myself), £25.20 + receive 10% off right now.

Now start getting ready for that New Year’s Eve bash…
