Gulf Weekly Clothing with a conscience

Stay bundled up and cosy as the weather starts to dip and go green at the same time with Mango’s Committed Capsule Collection boasting recycled wools and natural materials.

The special line features garments designed with reprocessed fabrics that use sustainable fibres.

Artist and model Saskia De Brauw was captured wearing the chic and comfortable designs as part of a campaign shoot staged at the Spanish Aiguas Tortas nature park by the Barcelona-based brand last year.

The collection was especially befitting of the artist as she tends to focus on space and the passing of time or cities in her projects. Her concepts produce a vision of clarity and simplicity and the same can be said about the garments in the collection.

Natural materials such as wool, biodegradable fibres such as Tencel, or recycled fibres such as viscose, are used in shades of white, brown and aubergine within the new line.

This is an important achievement for the brand as it champions sustainable style and has a desire to create fashion with a conscience. In fact, the fashion house has established a goal for itself to increase the proportion of sustainable fibres and to commit to supporting the use of 50 per cent sustainable cotton by 2022.

In addition, Mango is continuing with its SECOND CHANCES project to recycle clothing and footwear, allocating the collected clothing to local recycling and international reuse.
