Mango launches their first sustainable collection
In our attempt to make sustainability more mainstream, we’d say it’s a happy day when brands the scale of Mango launches a “committed” collection.
The Mango Committed collection consists of 25 women’s pieces and 20 men’s, and is made sustainable partly by the use of materials like organic and recycled cotton, recycled polyester and tencel in combination with lower impact dyes. All garments have international certificates guaranteeing their sustainable origin and are manufactured in factories in Portugal, Turkey and Morocco. The result: minimal shapes in neutral, earthy tones made desirable by a modern sensibility.
The capsule collection was captured in a dreamy campaign shot by Josh Olins on real-life model couple Raquel Zimmermann and Mathias Lauridsen. The location, Maison Gaudet, is the iconic home of organic designer Antti Lovag built in Tourrettes-sur-Loup, France. The villa is facing the Mediterranean Sea and was designed to take optimal advantage of the volcanic Côte d’Azur landscape. And speaking of optimal, there’s no doubt this is a fashion-interior match made in heaven. We’d love to see more sustainable initiatives looking this good.
