This is a part of my ongoing collaboration with Esprit. We did our first project together this fall and have since met both in Stockholm and Berlin to create content focusing on their sustainability efforts. Earlier this spring myself and my Make it last co-founder Lisa participated in a panel debate on the future of fashion in general and the sustainable ambitions of Esprit in particular, it was a great talk. I tend to think longer, more integrated collaborations are more fruitful than one-offs. You get to know the brand, you get some insight into what the motivations and main challenges are.
Anyway, Esprit is on a journey towards a more sustainable business model and they are working a lot with better materials as a part of this process. Nearly 70 percent of Esprit’s denim is made of organic cotton and recycled materials, to mention one. They also work a lot with for example Tencel and a material I’m increasingly interested in, Ecovero (it’s derived from certified renewable wood sources using an eco-responsible production process which meets high environmental standards).
Here are my favorite sustainable Esprit garments for this coming summer. I’m so excited to bring them to Portugal in a month or so. I love the shirt’s detailing and the bag is perfection! Which are your favorites?
