H&M has given a sneak peek of its forthcoming Conscious Exclusive collection – the seventh sustainably produced range from the high street brand.
Available from April 19th, the latest line is inspired by the Swedish Arts and Crafts movement and is swathed in lace, embroidery and romantic sheer fabrics.
Each elegant piece contains sustainable materials such as recycled silver, organic silk and cotton, and ECONYL, a fabric made from recycled nylon waste like discarded fishing nets.
There's a stunning wedding dress (€299, around £266) made from ECONYL and organic cotton, a floaty button-through maxi-dress (€149, £132-ish) in Lyocell – a kind of rayon fabric made from wood – and shoes in recycled polyester (€79.99, £71). Green is the key colour among a monochrome base.
"The innovation behind sustainable materials never ceases to amaze. Recycled silver is made from scrap metal with minimal environmental impact and ECONYL is a 100 per cent regenerated nylon fibre from nylon waste that support clean oceans," says Ann-Sofie Johansson, Creative Advisor at H&M.
"The way the materials feature in our Conscious Exclusive collection shows how the latest technology can be incorporated with time-honoured techniques for spectacular results."
