Topshop to launch eco lineMonday, 28 May 2012
High street fashion chain Topshop will launch a line of clothing made from
surplus stock and production off-cuts through a collaboration with Reclaim To Wear.
The capsule collection, which will launch next month, includes a blouse, stripe and colour block panel maxi dress, and grey marl sweater.
Orsola de Castro, Reclaim to Wear creative director, said: "This is the first step towards the creation of zero waste design collections. I trust that the Topshop team's commitment to new sustainable solutions will lead to the reconsidering of consumption versus disposal throughout the whole fashion industry supply chain."
The collection will be available from 15 June in Topshop's Oxford Circus store in London and online.
Reclaim To Wear was launched in 1997 by From Somewhere, the eco fashion label founded by de Castro and managing director Filippo Ricci, to offer a design solution to waste within the textile industry.
