The eco fashion trend is catching on in a big way, as evidenced by the launch of the gorgeous Topshop Reclaim collection of designs made entirely from leftover material like jersey, denim, and cotton from the fashion giant’s existing stock of fabric remnants.
The UK based company partnered up with eco fashion pioneers Orsola de Castro and Filippo Ricci of From Somewhere for their venture into the world of eco chic via the process of upcycling. This is the process of utilizing leftover fabrics and materials to create unique, creative, eco friendly and, of course fashionable, garments.
The capsule collection includes ’90s inspired collarless jackets, lots of white denim, funnel neck tops, flowy and silky florals, and geometric cuts – and all at prices ranging from $22-85!
Taking cues from the Fall 2015 runways, the collection features monotones, high waist skirts and trousers, nude and sheer tops, turtlenecks and the much loved miniskirt. We especially love the Leopard Print Overlay shorts ($68), and the matching top ($52). Accessorize your fall look with chic black boots, some seductive long gloves, a skinny scarf and of course some of this season’s big and colorful bling.
We’re so glad that companies and labels with fast fashion notoriety have begun to recognize and embrace the importance of eco fashion and sustainable design and its eventual evolution into the mainstream. We hope that the Topshop Reclaim collection inspires many more of its kind!
As Trish Clarke, Head of Technical Services at Topshop stated, “We are inspired to challenge textile waste across our product areas, whilst still creating versatile designs that are wardrobe essentials for our customers. From 70’s button down dresses, to sheer panel print blouses – we want everyday fashion to be sustainable in TOPSHOP’s portfolio and blueprint.”
