vans wildfox custom culture

Vans partnered with Wildfox couture designers Kimberly Gordon and Emily Faulstich to highlight their Custom culture program with these super cool Vans Slip-Ons:

Starting February 1st, art teachers can register their school for participation in  Vans Custom Culture. The first 1,000  schools to sign up successfully, will be sent four pairs of Vans shoes to customize. Design submissions will be accepted in March. Vans staff will narrow the national field of entries to 50 (selecting 10 schools from each of the five regions), after which the public will vote online to find the top five finalists. Those five finalists will be brought to Los Angeles for an exclusive event in May where a panel of judges will choose a winner. The winning school will be awarded a $50k prize for their art program.

Pool LV: Slowcolor Scarves

Project 2012 033

Fairtrade clothing made by traditional weaving techniques dyed using natural dyes:

In the same way, Slowcolor values the way clothing has been made for thousands of years. Indigo, pomegranates, and madder root are just a few of our “gourmet color” ingredients. After the linen is woven on the handlooms, it may take days or even weeks to dye a garment with natural dye, as opposed to a quick chemical bath. The final result is a beautiful, non-toxic garment produced with respect for the Earth, those who produced it and those who wear it.

H&M ‘Conscious Collection’ Hits Retail

10 October 2011, 17.05 | Posted in FASHION WITH A CONSCIENCE, Retail | 3 comments »

H&MConsciousCollection

As part of its ongoing commitment to sustainability, H&M launches another “Conscious Collection,” parts of which hit retail this past week and is also available on line. Mother Earth-oriented or otherwise we tend to have an attitude toward H&M though we must admit this collection looks undeniably good. The dress here is made from woven, organic hemp and silk fabric and is priced at $79.99. See a lace dress and a very covetable frame bag on the next page.

UPDATE: As we all know, H&M stands for “Hit & Miss” as it applies to how the clothes look in real life as opposed to high-priced photo shoots. That being said I visited an H&M on Broadway in SoHo, last night, saw the collection and was even taken enough to try on a couple of pieces. And after waiting in line for 15 minutes for the dressing room and being subjected to a mirror whose lighting would make even Lara Stone cry, I still ended up liking the clothes I tried on. In other words, quality-wise the Conscious Collection is a “hit.” Not every garment but a lot combine decent quality and fit.
