Finally! There are loads of new vegan fashions at Net Sustain! See our picks here
Sustainable fashion is often cited as one of the biggest trends that will hit up the new ’20’s, and no wonder: consumers of all ages, races and genders are demanding that fashion brands become more ethical, cutting fur from their collections and ensuring that workers are paid fairly throughout the production process.
Even retailers are in on the trend, and shops like Matches and Net A Porter are now curating conscious collections from brands that are striving to make a difference. In fact, the latter retailer has added 45 fashion and 30 beauty brands to its arsenal of sustainable luxury labels, totalling 100 brands that now comprise Net Sustain.
In case you’re not familiar with this collection, Net Sustain requires the brands it chooses for this part of their shop to offer at least one of the following:
- Considered Materials & Ingredients
- Considered Processes
- Reducing Waste
- Locally Made
- Boosting Craft & Community
- Focus on animal welfare
But most recently, they’ve added another criteria, which is my personal favourite: Veganism! Yay!
Of course, each brand they choose must fit in with the Net A Porter aesthetic, and that’s why the likes of Gabriela Hearst, Theory, Bite Studios, and Envelope 1976 have all been included. We’re really excited about these vegan fashions at Net Sustain, but guess what? They’ve also got a vegan beauty collection that’s just in! Curious to learn more about that? Watch this space!
We Love These Vegan Fashions At Net Sustain
Macrame is having a moment right now, and we couldn’t be more thrilled! What’s not to love about this fringy, swishy bag, with it’s 70’s vibe? This tote is spacious enough to hold all of your summer essentials, like sunscreen, shades and maybe a copy of Eluxe Magazine in print!
The best part is that all of Nannacay’s bags are vegan friendly, and the label is working with female artisans in Brazil to revive their macrame-making traditions. “We are developing a new group of artisans in Northeast of Brazil with women that had their macramé culture and heritage abandoned and now they are working with us,” explains the brand.
Prices: From around $225
How comfy does this organic cotton outfit look? We’re loving the roomy pockets, slim fit, and ultra-lightness of New York-based label Skin’s casual wear. The brand creates perfectly cut tanks, track bottoms, pajamas and lingerie from mainly organic Pima cotton. What we love the most is the total lack of silk in all their lingerie collections!
Prices: From around $55 for a bra to $95 for these pants
Although this label isn’t usually vegan, By Malene Birger has created a 9 piece capsule collection exclusively for Net A Sustain that’s made from 100% organic cotton. While they may not be fully vegan, sustainability is still a key mission for this popular designer brand, and they aim to use the most eco-friendly materials possible to produce all their looks. This wonderfully stylish capsule was designed By Malene’s creative director, Mathilde Torp Mader, and is made up of timeless closet essentials staying true to their Scandinavian aesthetic.
Prices: From around $95 for an organic cotton tee
If you’re a fan of comfy undies with no underwiring, lace or literal or metaphorical frills, you’ll love Baserange! This is an ethical underwear brand believes that “a commitment to clean production will minimize environmental impact,” which is their ribbed ‘Pam’ briefs and bras are made from stretch-organic cotton and come with an OEKO-TEX® certification. We love the delicate orange piping along this cheerful yellow hue.
Prices: From $40
The one thing most of us cannot live without in our closet is denim – but the problem is, it’s often so bad for the environment, as its product takes up loads of water, and the dyes used for jeans is normally toxic. Not Citizens of Humanity’s jeans, though! The use organic cotton that’s naturally dyed. We love their ‘Emily’ jeans, which were cut in a flattering culotte design with wide, cropped legs. Wear yours with knee boots and a tucked-in blouse.
Prices: From around $200
“The #DressBetter mantra is at the heart of our business,” says the founders of Ninety Percent. Organic cotton forms the basis for most of its planet-friendly designs, but recycled polyester, Tencel and EcoVera are also used. This is a brand that gives back, big time: they distribute 90% of their profits between those who make each collection happen and four charities – you even get a chance to decide which causes the funds are donated to when you make a purchase! We love their slouchy track suits, but also: don’t miss the organic cotton roll necks this brand has created exclusively for Net A Sustain.
Prices: From $35
8. E.L.V. Denim
E.L.V. is short for ‘East London Vintage,’ and that gives you a pretty good idea of what this brand is all about: the brand buys up stocks of old discarded denim and transforms them into modern, sophisticated jeans.
E.L.V Denim design and manufacture their entire collection in East London, minimising waste, water and energy footprints. They operate from an ideal of ‘zero waste’ and create their jeans with barely any environmental impact, giving a second life to fabric which otherwise could be destined for landfill.
For example? This high-rise ‘The Twin’ jeans below were expertly crafted from contrasting panels of repurposed denim, making each style completely unique. They’re cut for a straight-leg fit and finished with wispy raw hems.
Prices: From around $200
9. Mara Hoffman
It’s hard to believe this designer was once a famous – but conventional – creator of swimsuits and beachwear. After awakening to the damage fashion does for the planet, Mara Hoffman is now the proud maker of beautiful fashion collections that are fabricated in socially responsible conditions using ethically sourced and recycled fabrics. Expect printed beachwear and feminine silhouettes that are guaranteed to stand out on vacation.
Prices: From around $145
Long a favourite vegan brand at Net A Porter Sustain, Nanushka knows that one of this seasons’ hottest trends is for leather looks – but they want to do theirs without the cruelty! Their ‘Freya’ jumpsuit is one example of how vegans can be bang on trend this season. Cut from a beautifully soft cruelty-free vegan leather fabric, we love how its V-neckline and flared leg gives a big nod to vintage styles of the 70’s.
Prices: From around $400
