FALL 2014 BEST ETHICAL + SUSTAINABLE COLLECTIONS

MIA, not the band… Me! And with good reason! I have a number of exciting projects underway. Never the less it’s left little time to post here and in my absence there has been so much I’ve wanted to share. My blog-to-do list is lonnnng…!!!

Fashion month may be over, however I think it’s the perfect time to reflect back at the month that was and review next seasons traceable trends…

Let’s start with the most luxurious ethical, sustainable conscientious designer collections this season on the runway.

This is quite easily my favourite collection by Maiyet to date. It was confident, rich, edgy, and innovative. I loved the bold punch of colour and graphic sensibility.

Edun produced what might just be the most comfy, lux, plush, soft & fuzzy collection of the season and there was many of them to be seen on the runway. It was Danielle Sherman’s second collection for the ethical luxury brand, created in 2005 by Bono and his wife Ali Hewson, that has since been backed by LVMH in 2009. Danielle has quickly made the design house relevant, contemporary and incredibly luxurious with the use of strong geometrics in pattern, colour blocking and silhouette. It was a sporty collection focused on chunky over-sized knits and fuzzy plush wools with a heart of the 1972. A time period known for its seemingly effortless look, over sized sweaters, neutral earthy colour palette, softened textures. After the bitterly cold winter here in New York, this collection removes my fear of the cold for next winter!SUNOf14

A collection of transformation from the rags to riches of the roma gypsies of the 90′s. Suno produced a very sophisticated, sleek collection focused on deeper, rich colours, strong stripe patterns and ethereal metallics. Known for pattern and print blocking in previous seasons, this season was beautifully edited and paired down to refined details. Silhouettes were looser and longer from the body, which seems to be pleasantly common this season on the runway. stellaf14

A continuation of tassel adornment from pre-fall 2014, Stella McCartney’s collection carried on the notion of over-sized lux knits and squiggly embellishment in the form of zippers and rope.

Known for his earth hugging routes in ethical and sustainable design, Organic by John Patrick continues to prove that being a conscientious designer can create relevant, beautiful and inspiring designs. This collection was ever so light, refreshing and clean! It was both warm and cool at the same time.
