Top and Trousers, H&M Conscious Exclusive. Faux Fur, Hope.
Blouse, Max Mara/Second Hand. Sunglasses, Ace & Tate.
H&M Conscious Exclusive FW18 launches at H&M.se on September 27. The velvet in the collection is made with polyester recycled from a combination of old or used uniforms and textile waste from garment factories.
