Fashion that survives more than one season
Fashionoffice has collected some pieces that are following the sustainable design concept of staying in fashion longer than one season - until the clothing falls from the body like a second skin.
Tank-top-dress made of organic cotton in the powdry color sand, cork-wedges with naturally tanned black leather, and shopper in sheepskin from the 'Organic Fashion'-collection by Grüne Erde, SS2011.
The first 'Organic Fashion'-collection by the Austrian home interior label Grüne Erde was launched last year. For SS2011, Grüne Erde (means 'Green Earth', founded 28 years ago) provides pieces made of sustainable materials like organic cotton or linen from European environmental-friendly agricultures, and produced by manufacturers that are following the idea of 'fair-production'. Even the design concept bases on the sustainable idea; the items can be used for different situations such as sportive activities, for a relaxed city style or as part of business outfits - the outfit gets its look through the combination of the single pieces. Additionally, the designers of Grüne Erde have focused on basics which stay in fashion for more than one season.
