i am head over heels (literally!!!) in love with beyond skin. this amazing vegan and vegetarian shoe brand out of the UK, is serving up fashionable footwear without hurting our furry friends. I love the style combo they included ZWD in! we are the urban punks. get your zwd, beyond skin and more cruelty-free fashion on www.beyondskin.co.uk
- Long Sleeve Raglan Print, Daniel Silverstein, $88. This jumper has the saturation levels turned up on full, injecting instant colour and energy into this look. This designer’s latest collection is called ZWD, standing for Zero Waste Daniel. No prizes for guessing that it’s comprised of 100% pre-consumer cutting room waste (it does what it says on the tin). What you might not have guessed is how each of these fragmented collages of textile waste could become such slick, razor-sharp pieces, ideal for turning heads and standing out from the crowd.
- Lila Jeansrock, ArmedAngels, £58.47. This clean and simple denim skirt is made using 94.4% GOTS certified organic cotton and 5.6% spandex. Throughout their designs, they use modal and tencel, that we’ve mentioned before on our blog for having sterling sustainable credentials. They’re currently working with the Fair Wear Foundation and Fairtrade to implement their high standards throughout their supply chain at every level. This denim skirt is a classic piece, and would benefit your summer wardrobe and the people who made it.
- Stud Earrings Geometric Triangle in ZigZag, Lucie Ellen. We spotted Lucie Ellen’s sweet little jewellery designs in the tail end of last year when the Observer Ethical Awards 2015 were announced, and Here Today Here Tomorrow was a runner up, and they stocked Lucie Ellen. They’re made using just wood, varnish, glue, paper, and silver-plated steel, and they come in an entire rainbow of colours, and then some. She’s currently on her holidays so isn’t taking orders, but do add her page to your bookmarks all the same.
- Maggie Rose Gold Flatform, Beyond Skin, £120. Following on from the urban vibe of the jumper, it felt only right to choose flatforms to go with it. And our Maggie sandals are the (rose) gold standard in sustainable shoes. They’re fitted with padded insoles and flexi soles and are super comfy, fit for wearing for weeks at a time (excluding sleeping and showering, of course). Don’t forget, you can get £10 off these sandals at the moment with code kittens10, so snap up your pair post haste!
