Jumping from yesterday’s all pink outfit to an all dark attire today! This lavender-striped tee (last seen here & here) and these aubergine corduroy trousers (last seen here) are my perfect match this season. But are they sustainably sourced?
Olive stripe jumper: 100% cotton, designed in Cheltenham, England but I have no clue about its actual production. Their “garments are manufactured within OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation & Development) advanced economies with suppliers who are [their] economic equals”. You can read more about Rohan Moore, Managing Director’s words on ethical responsibility here.
Tommy Hilfiger corduroy trousers: made in Vietnam… Like many other brands such as Inditex or H&M group, TH has built its success on fast-fashion consumption. They are now joining the route to sustainability following guidelines proposed by the United Nations that they should achieve by 2020. Read their 3 principles and 10 commitments here. Let see in 3 years!
Vintage Gucci pouch: last seen here where you can read what I have to say about vintage fashion!
COS coat: Last seen here with all the details!
& Other Stories boots: Genuine Leather, made in China! I was quite surprised when I discovered the country. I would have at least expected made in Portugal from this brand…
Zara scarf: made in China… I clearly have nothing to add… Just ashamed to say that I have them in 4 different colors (have it in gray, white and pink!). It was affordable, XXL and soft.
Alternative: buy better but fewer next time. ANIMANA produces beautiful, hand-made and natural shawls.
I hope this outfit inspires you to recreate your own look with similar garments you already have in your closet and also pay attention to where your clothes are coming from! Join the Slow Fashion Challenge and show me your outfits with the hashtag #SlowFashionChallenge on Instagram!
