H&M to launch ‘Waste’ collection

Submitted by on Monday, 31 January 2011 | One Comment

If you weren’t lucky enough to get your hands on H&M’s gorgeous Lanvin collection that launched late last year, you might just still be in luck…

In keeping with eco friendly fashion, the high street retailer has taken left over fabrics from the Lanvin collection and turned them into a cute collection of accessories, sportswear, dresses, tunics, skirts and jackets that will be available in select stores. The collection, titled ‘Waste,’ uses several varieties of leftover fabric to create striped, graphic and harlequin patterns for the individual pieces.

“This mini collection from leftover fabrics looks absolutely wonderful,” Ann-Sofie Johansson, the head designer at H&M, said in a release. “My favorite piece is the bright, color-block tunic. It’s perfect for that first spring update.”

    Sweet! I think H&M is serious about eco fashion, and they took a lot out good things of the NICE conference in Copenhagen last year. Recycled material is a great eco-friendly material because it not only doesn’t hurt the environment, it helps by using something that would otherwise fill up a landill. I work at a recycled jeans company though so I’m sure I am biased :)
