To look both sophisticated and sustainable this spring, discover Eco-conscious apparel from designers like Loyale, EDUN, and Stewart + Brown. The eco-friendly fashionistas behind these brands scour the globe for organic cotton, hemp, linen, and bamboo jersey as well as surplus and vintage fabrics. Some brands do even more for the planet, like EDUN, started by Ali Hewson and Bono, which donates clothing profits toward socially conscious development projects in Africa. In addition, many green clothing companies that use renewable energy in production insist on high labor standards and serve their latest styles in recyclable or reusable packaging.
For modern looks, try Stewart + Brown, a company that specializes in up-to-date basics that can be worn through the seasons. For instance, try pairing one of Stewart + Brown’s ultra-soft organic cotton knits with one of their delicate cardigans made of Mongolian cashmere for a luxurious and trendy look. For more casual style, check out Loomstate’s washed organic denim and trendy organic cotton tops. Coveted by Natalie Portman and other celebs and sold at Barneys, Fred Segal, and other boutiques, Loomstate is decidedly upscale, but their attention to green details and precise fit makes their jeans worth every penny. Spring styles for women also abound at Sustainable Collective. Visit Sustainable Collective’s online store to view their flirty spring dresses and sleeveless tops for those who want to be green without comprising on style.
