Paris Fashion Week still has a long way to go before it’s as sustainable as say, Berlin or London’s fashion weeks, but there are still some brands with runway shows during this most looked-forward-to event on the fashion week schedule.
Here, we’ve found the three most eco-chic labels, which just also happen to be amongst the most gorgeous that showed at Paris Fashion Week SS15. Feast your eyes!
Stella McCartney: Weekend Chic
Stella McCartney sure knows what women want: namely blue jeans, roomy culottes and comfy smock shirts.
You needn’t be a size zero to love what Stella creates–relaxed chic is her speciality. There may not have been anything edgy or ‘cool’ in this collection, but that’s just what makes this vegan designer’s clothes so very wearable.
Maiyet: Portrait of a Lady
Have you ever seen anything so elegant from an ethical brand? Maiyet’s collection this season was perfect for the modern Hitchcock heroine: sleek and chic and anything but meek, the brand used a monochrome palette punctuated by that ‘new neutral’, phone box red.
What we’re seeing here today at Valentino is sure to be considered a classic collection piece tomorrow. So strong are the talents of Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, they are being compared to Coco Chanel and Yves St Laurent in their heyday, and with good reason: their highly skilled use of tissue-thin fabric, delicate embroideries and feminine silhouettes and innovative patterns are more like art than fashion.
The additional fact that Greenpeace gave them the green light for their sustainability and production line transparency means their are truly fashion deities in our eyes!
