Celine Aagaard: “Who says you need this season’s trench coat?”
Every week, Filippa K Circle invites inspiring people to share their current mindsets. This week fashion journalist Celine Aagaard shares her thoughts.
My state of mind: In between. I’ve just put my son to bed, and tomorrow I’m off to Paris to cover fashion week for Envelope.no. I love the contrasts in life, but after I became a mother I do have a love-hate relationship to all my traveling.
In relation to fashion, I have learned not to: Go with the flow, say yes to everything or buy stuff just because they’re on trend. Who says you need this season’s trench coat if you can just as easily find a vintage one that’s twice as nice—with shoulder pads and the best silhouette—and at the same time support a good cause?
My best DIY tip for making every day more sustainable: Don’t talk about it, do it! Take your bike instead of the car, don’t eat meat, shop vintage and recycle. Bring your tote bags to the grocery store instead of getting yet another plastic bag, support the local industries and cook your food from scratch.
My eco-fashion prediction: We’ll buy more vintage and go for the sustainable choices. Recycle, and reuse!
