Today’s curated collection of sustainable sartorial finds features some of the more ethically minded from across the pond…
(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.
(above L & R) Recycling since 1997, fromsomewhere.co.uk shows us how to stay warm and chic; find @ yoox.com
(above L & R) Famous for turning trash into treasure, Junky Styling rescues pre-loved garments and keeps material out of landfills; this MOL Basque top can be worn 4 different ways, thanks to a versatile lapel. £150.00
(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.
