THE PURPLE SUIT
ASOS DESIGN CIRCULAR unisex suit trousers in lilac, £35
This is our MOST SUSTAINABLE SUIT EVER. For real, though: every little bit of it is made from recycled materials – even the shoulder pads! The story doesn’t end there though; each part of the suit is made from one-fibre materials (ICYDK, it’s still quite tricky to recycle fabrics made of two or more fibres), and to make this process even easier, you can even separate out the lining, pockets and shoulder pads to ensure TOTAL recyclability. No waste here, people – just slick suiting that’s big on responsible vibes 🕺
THE ZERO-WASTE SHIRT
THE UPCYCLED SHIRT
Stripes are so cool, so wearable, that we thought, hey – why not splice three different styles together and create an ultra-stripey mega-shirt? We also thought: hey, you know that fabric waste that’s not doing anything? Why don’t we use that to make this shirt, all in the name of upcycling? So, there you have it: the most stripey shirt in the world (probably), created using upcycled materials that you can recycle again when you’re done with it. Nice.
THE RECYCLABLE DENIM JACKET
This isn’t just your new favourite trophy jacket. It’s another one-fibre winner, made of both BCI AND recycled cotton! Plus, you can easily remove any metal details (like buttons) so it can be recycled responsibly. It’s also designed so it can be worn, shared and re-styled, over and over. And lastly, we’ve used lasers on it – very 3020👽 – to get the vintage, washed effect in an environmentally responsible way. Oh, and it also comes with a handy denim-care guide, so you can get maximum looks out of it for the longest possible time. Basically, it’s a lifer.
