Sustainable Hero Pieces

Posted in Style

I’ve chosen some pieces from my favorite sustainable brands that might really be the perfect wardrobe heroes. When I say heroes, I mean garments that will “have your back” for many seasons and years to come.

To me, sustainable fashion is made up by different important factors. High quality garments is one; timeless design is another. And I always look for brands that maintain a sustainable line of production. I believe the brands below tick at least a couple of these boxes.


Emma Elwin: I think that this is a great point you are making! For some people this certainty, but not everybody are quite there yet and then sustainable materials like Lyocell for example is a great choice or buying things that are off high quality and timeless design. I am sure we will get to a point where we live off what we got.

r.: what about the fact that we already have A LOT of materia(l) in this world of ours, wouldn't it be time to stop producing altogether and start using what we already have?!
