Start with the jeans?

Lisa Corneliusson reveals her top three sustainable denim.

For someone wanting to approach sustainable style options one clothing category at the time; a good option for anyone who tends to feel overwhelmed when trying to make sense of it all at once; it might be a good idea to start with the denim. This is because there are really good options to conventional water-, chemical- and energy-wasting jeans right now, beyond classics such as Nudie and Neuw. Here are three of my favorites.

Re/Done

Re/Done does this silly brilliant thing of taking apart old, perfectly faded Levi’s and putting them together in styles that seem to attract more than just myself; the brand’s only a year or two old but it’s already doing great. Nowadays, it’s legit, meaning they’re officially collaborating with Levi’s, there’s a new white co-tag. More fun when it was indie, but oh well. Re/Dones are a good option because they make use of what’s already here. The prices are of course as silly and you can absolutely do these changes yourself, but if you’re not up for it, browse here. Remember though, there’s duty to be paid if ordering to Sweden, which makes the deal completely senseless.

Denim-Weekday

Weekday

Since last spring, all Weekday’s five-pocket jeans are made from more sustainable materials. This spring’s collection includes a lot of new colours; Weekday says no to compromising on creativity; and a new unisex fit called Sex. It looks nice, especially when shot by Johan Sandberg, a genius photographer that I had the opportunity of working a lot with when I worked with Rodeo Magazine. Have a look here.

Denim-Filippa-K

Filippa K

Filippa K’s spring collection is hitting stores and it has so many great sustainable options. These jeans have the perfect width and cropped legs, and the genius dirty white colour is that shade of white that you can use in the winter. And, they’re made of organic cotton denim. Shop here.
