Now available for pre-order on Stella McCartney’s website, the new Spring 2020 collection maintains the designer’s intent to make every new collection the most sustainable ever. From this resort collection, 75% of the materials used derive from sustainable resources, such as organic cotton, hemp, recycled polyester, Econyl. .
.In Stella’s interview with Vogue, she says that, for Resort, her approach has become more overt: “Normally you don’t see what we do in terms of manufacturing conscientiousness,” she explained. “All the efforts we make in doing what we do are in the product, not on the product. This season I wanted to make it more visible.”.

From the brands born with sustainability at the core of what they do to new must-try material innovations, the 2010s have been the decade that led to 2019, the year of awakening. What has defined this decade?
Find out how every year has brought your favorite sustainable fashion items here.
2010: the year of birth
Reformation, Everlane are some of the brands we have learned to appreciate for their sustainable efforts. The beginning of 2010s set the start of brand new names that care.
2011: desire without destroying the environment
More brands join in the quest for turning sustainable fashion from eco-boring into the must-have of the future. Other brands, continue on the long-ago-started quest to make sustainable fashion the norm (Osken, Patagonia – launching the “Don’t buy this jacket campaign” on the New York Times).
2012: digital starts changing fashion
May it be online shopping or the “See now, Buy now” desire, fashion brands get caught up in the necessity of speed and digitization.
2013: what we never wanted to see happen
A year of great tragedy that moved the many in the fashion industry. We never want to remember the bad, but the shock of the episode of the Rana Plaza was the signal that change was needed.
After Rana Plaza’s disaster, 2014 was the year when millions of pages were written, movies, campaigns were made and movements were born. Everybody started to pay attention and introduce new ideas, innovations on how to make up for the bad.
2015: the ocean cleaning begins
ECONYL® Partners With World Champion Surfer Kelly Slater on OUTERKNOWN for a sustainable collection made from 100 percent regenerated nylon waste materials.
2016: from global sustainable fashion week to dedicated runways
As things get more serious, independent fashion weeks or special runways are dedicated to sustainable fashion.
2017: goodbye to fur
This was the year big fashion names like Gucci went fur free. Some brands had already said goodbye to fur in the previous decade, but 2017 set a reaction chain for many more to liberate themselves from fur.
2018: things get heated
Vivienne Westwood launches the “Buy Less, Dress Up” campaign, bringing a DIY-aesthetic to the unisex fashion line.
For early 2019 Marine Serre prepares a jaw dropping campaign that let’s it burn.
2019: what is it made of?
Material innovation and recycled capsule collections were 2019’s trend. Who could have thought we would end up with a bag made out of discarded pineapple leafs or a bikini from recycled fishing nets?
Big fashion brands, such as Prada and Burberry, launched their collections of recycled nylon and started joining efforts in alternative material adoption.The adidas by Stella McCartney Infinite Hoodie is the first experiment of a highly advanced process by NuCycl that liquifies fibers to create new ones.
A new brand to inspire creativity and customization. How good to know about this winter’s innovation first? From this A/W 19-20 and onwards: versatile pieces that can be extended, re-arranged and made one’s own.
A capsule of individual additional accessories may be collected and used individually or connected to the other modules in different ways over time. This is Avoria’s main concept.
Made of ECONYL®, AVORIA’s fabrics, with their innovative and restorative combination of Palo Santo and Frankincense, provide the body with natural protection thanks to the beneficial effect of the sacred wood essence and essential oil compounds.

As the last boxes and bags gather underneath our Christmas trees and lights shine bright leading us to a New Year, words are being spilled all over the web: cheers to the big How-To titles for sustainable choices from different magazines. In the climate-crisis era we live in, every little step matters.Photo: Sheep Inc. and I-D.What are conscious people doing this winter 19-20?.

8 Ways Fashion Started Taking The Climate Crisis Seriously In 2019
2019 will go down as the year that fashion finally started taking the climate crisis seriously. Whether it was thanks to Greta Thunberg and millions around the world protesting on the streets, the stark warnings from scientists that we’re running out of time to tackle emissions, or consumers becoming increasingly aware of the impact their clothes are having on the environment…
This December 2019 Moncler unveiled its commitment to sustainability, working with innovative materials and more eco-friendly alternatives through the launch of a new puffer jacket: TREPORT. Selling online for 1,300 euros, the jacket is the second initiative taken on by the brand, after the recycled line Grenoble Recycled for mountain-goers.
Partnered with REDD+, Moncler also offsets the carbon used to create the jacket..The initiatives sounds (and looks) really good: let’s analyze it further..
What are the materials composing the jacket?
The outer shell, lining, buttons, and zippers are all derived from castor beans: a sustainable bio-plastic as an alternative. Castor beans are a raw material that further allow for a 30% reduction of CO2 emissions compared to a fossil origin source.
Does it mean the jacket is vegan?
No.Moncler clearly writes that the jacket is internally composed by down and 10% of feathers. They are certified ( https://dist.moncler.com/) for those who are not vegan, but still checking on the quality, origin and animal welfare of down.
Is Moncler’s jacket a sustainable alternative?
The brands states that “Moncler is aware that sustainability is not a final destination, but an ongoing improvement process driven by the constant search for new solutions to shape the future”. For those of you who are fan of the brand, it is great to support steps forward preferring this instead of other collections.
TREPORT Jacket promotes material innovation and further improvements from the brand. However, for those looking for vegan options, there are many other innovations to look into, such as PANGAIA’s FLWRDWN.
Moncler’s new sustainable trials with this TREPORT Jacket and theGrenoble Recycled do not currently meet the transparency requirements (the brand, for example, does not clearly state the percentage of recycled materials used in the collection) and material innovation taken into consideration from Renoon.
We postpone our evaluation on Moncler’s new collections until further information is available.

Ralph Lauren introduces The Earth Polo, a collection of the iconic Polo made with plastic bottles: 100% recycled, 100% recyclable and colored with waterless technology. Each shirt is made with approximately 12 plastic bottles and even the labels and hashtags are made from recycled material. The greatest accomplishment, according to the brand, was making a product good enough to surpass Polo’s standards of quality (some members of the Polo team were not able to determine which fabric was which in a side-by-side comparison).”This is not a new hippie sustainable product: it’s an iconic one”.
