Imagine a clothing collection created from recycled shoreline waste… well that’s exactly what H&M’s new Conscious 2017 Collection is all about. The entire collection is made from sustainable materials including BIONIC – a polyester made from recycled shoreline waste. The collection showcases how fashion can be mindful of the planet.
The collection embodies a sophistication that makes it easy to take the pieces from day to night – a light shimmer and a touch of sequins including an array of cocktail dresses to choose from.
Details such as fine embroidery and big cuff sleeves compliment the clothing. A favourite of mine is the tuxedo reimagined as lounge jacket made from an organic silk paired with a playful pair of trousers.
The collection launches worldwide on the 20th April and will be available in 160 stores and online. For my South African readers the collection will be available at the V&A Waterfront.
