The world’s growing interest in sustainability is encouraging brands to re-evaluate their consumption habits and redirect their efforts towards becoming more ‘positively conscious.’ Luxury fashion heavyweights, including Gucci and Stella McCartney, as well as on-the-rise labels and regional brands, are spotlighting sustainability in order to motivate consumers and the fashion industry to follow suit. As consumers in 2022, it is our duty to create a positive social impact through our choices, and thankfully we have the ability to do so too. Living sustainably has become a covetable lifestyle choice—and what better way to start practicing good habits than by investing in brands that echo a more mindful approach?
Not sure where to start? How about with a longtime favorite courtesy of Gucci? Treat yourself to a GG petite textured leather and print coated canvas wallet this season – an everyday classic. Well known for her ethical approach, Stella McCartney has also made green production her brand ethos: ‘responsible, honest, and modern’ – and that’s exactly what we get from her products, especially her Falabella medium vegetarian leather tote.
If a new bag tops your 2022 wishlist, consider Chloé’s woody recycled felt tote bag, or a new mushroom leather ‘Victoria’ travel bag by Hermès. Extend the ‘go green’ mentality to accessories too with Loren Stewart’s gold vermeil necklace or Laura Lombardi’s Elena bracelet. And what about footwear? Loefler Randall’s gold sienna tall boots are just what you need to beat those January blues. Feeling shady? Consider the DMY By DMY Valentina transparent brown sunglasses.
As you continue to update your wardrobe with eco-friendly finds, fill your closet with the best of the best. Think printed silk twill kaftans from Emilio Pucci, a JW Anderson multi-panel dress, a Rag & Bone zip sweater, or Marques Almeida’s asymmetric tie-dye T-shirt. There’s no going wrong with Marine Serre’s printed denim miniskirt or some E.L.V jeans. Finally, if want to sleep sustainably, Skin is the brand for you – consider the Christina PJ set for something simple, or if you want to spice things up with prints, look to Desmond and Dempsey. Above, Vogue Arabia has devised a list of the best conscious buys to jump start your year the right way…
