Given the fact that, according to The World Economic Forum, ‘the fashion industry produces 10 per cent of all humanity’s carbon emissions and is the second-largest consumer of the world’s water supply’, there is much to be done when it comes to making fashion more eco-friendly. If you’re looking to switch up your shopping habits, these are the sustainable fashion collaborations and collections to get behind now.

British luxury fashion label Stella McCartney has just launched its summer 2022 campaign, headed by Japanese dancer Aoi Yamada. The campaign, which was created and directed by Yamada, is described as ‘a psychedelic trip into nature, grounded in the notion that mushrooms connect us all’. A highlight of the collection is the Frayme Mylo™️ handbag, crafted from vegan mycelium (the underground root system of fungi), made its debut at the brand’s SS22 runway show. The bag, a world-first, was created in partnership with Bolt Threads. A limited quantity will be available to purchase later this year.

BOTTLETOP’s  community environmental campaign, #TOGETHERBAND, is back again for Earth Day 2022 with a new jewellery collection. Created in partnership with the Yawanawá, an Indigenous Brazilian community living in the heart of the Amazon rainforest, the collection features a range of unisex, vegan and zero-waste jewellery, hand-crafted from açaí seeds. Hand-painted and woven together using fine Parley Ocean Plastic® thread, the seeds are used to make bracelets and necklaces. Each product also features a distinctive single seed cast from Humanium Metal, which is repurposed from decommissioned, illegal firearms, seized from the streets of Central America. Speaking on the collection, Tashka Yawanawá, Chief of the Yawanawá, said: ‘The açaí fruit is very special to our people. We are partnering with BOTTLETOP to create the Yawanawá collection as a symbol of hope for the future of the forest and our community. With this jewellery, we can preserve the cultural heritage and craft of our community. And provide a livelihood for our people. Help us protect mother nature. Help us protect our home.’ togetherband.org

The brand, which hopes to achieve B Corp status by the end of this year, recently launched a new collection made up of entirely biodegradable vests and knickers. Called the B Edit, the collection combines Lenzing TENCEL™, SeaCell™ and Roica V550 instead of traditional elastane.

Vivienne Westwood continues to advocate for manufacturing and production strategies that are kinder to our planet, especially within the fashion industry. With the brand’s recent Made-To-Order Bridal collection, the brand highlights environmentally conscious fabric options like recycled tulle and FSC-certified viscose (a vegan alternative to silk and satin) as a means of redirecting the future of bridalwear onto a more eco-conscious pathway. The collection has also been designed, sampled and hand-crafted locally in England, using a traditional, smaller scale means of garment manufacture to combat its environmental impact.
