Making eco-conscious choices doesn’t mean sacrificing what we enjoy, but rather, looking for alternatives that don’t do as much harm to our environment.
As a part of the ethical-fashion narrative, Harbour City converges fashion labels that strive to lessen planetary impact while ensuring the fashion enthusiasts still stay ahead of the game. Let’s dive deep into what the new season has to offer.
Delicate fabrics for your little mini me’s
Care for the planet and your child’s health. Korean brand Organic Mom specializes in childrenswear made for babies and children aged from 0 to 12, using GOTS recognized organic cotton and natural dye. Free of fluorescent, harmful chemicals and allergens, the apparels do not irritate the delicate skin.
Dress up your little boy in the Organic Cotton Blue Bow Tie Suit and your little girl the HP Violet Knit Top Dress – both are perfect ensembles for a weekend stroll in the park as the energetic ones enjoy the breezy outdoors.
The future is now
With building a more circular future in mind, Parisian fashion house Suncoo’s The Future is Now capsule collection in the previous season significantly cut down the use of synthetic materials by half. The efforts to focus on natural materials are taken up a notch this season, to incorporate recycled polyester. Made from certified GRS eco-friendly materials and more than 67,000 recycled plastic bottles, the new collection has brought down about 4,000 kg of carbon emissions and 6,200 liters of water.
Pair a flowy top in tropical print with a tweed blazer for a casual spring look. The same blazer can be worn with the matching buttoned-up brassiere top and high waist shorts as a co-ord set for the office too.
Conscious by design
Sustainability doesn’t require the complete elimination of wardrobe rotations. It is a conscious way of curating a refined collection that has more longevity, with quality materials that last and classic silhouettes that don’t fall out of fashion being at the core.
Theory’s “Conscious by design” initiative aims to make all of their signature fabrics 100% traceable by 2025, and the latest range definitely demonstrates the brand’s commitment to that. Responsibly sourced fibers like cotton, wool, and linen are transformed into their signature “Good Fabrics” by mills that are focused on reducing the environmental impact during manufacturing.
Embrace the spring weather with the Etiennette Blazer in fuchsia. The pop of color juxtaposes the structured silhouette. Made with fully traceable merino wool sourced from the Beaufront farm in Tasmania and woven by an eco-conscious mill in Italy, this power jacket is consciously manufactured from start to finish.
Eco-friendly transitional pieces
The change in season means it’s time to swap your thick jackets with comfy sweatshirts that keep you cozy at night, but easy to take off when it gets a bit too warm during the day. Giorgio Armani’s cotton-blend rollneck sweatshirt is made from a GOTS certified cotton blend. The knitted mock neck makes it such a sophisticated piece to wear on a workday, while the oversized GA logo embroidered on the chest makes it effortless to dress down for a weekend urban excursion.
For the ladies, a classy single-breasted, stretch viscose-cady jacket is a versatile one to own, thanks to its distinctive lines and elegant design that stands the test of time.
While big and small fashion labels are doing their parts from revisiting the source of fabrics to reducing their supply chain’s carbon emissions, let’s make a difference together, through making greener choices with a clear conscience.
