On my search for innovative and stylish sustainable fashion collections, I stumbled upon Dutch brand OAT shoes. As you can see in the picture above, these are not just your regular shoes. As discussed in the article regarding the definition of sustainable fashion, the fashion lifecycle goes beyond the production process. That is a concept that these people have understood to the core. You buy sustainably produced shoes, and after wearing them out, you can plant them in your backyard, the shoes degrade on their own without leaving behind any toxic waste, and your garden will have an extra touch of green! Amazing, right?
In order to fully discover the world of sustainable fashion, we will also start to cover highly sustainable collections that are currently on the market. Even though the definition of ‘sustainable fashion’ proved to be difficult, more and more fashion labels are trying to produce ‘slower’ fashion under fair and humane conditions. That is why we will also highlight the style-aspect of sustainable fashion in this series. Above, the first collage to this attempt.
