Topshop goes green with Reclaim to Wear

by Jodi Lawler on

Following in the footsteps of H&M’s successful Conscious Collection, Topshop is the latest in a long line of high street stores creating an eco line of clothing with a conscience, teaming up with Reclaim to Wear on the collaboration. 

The collection, which will debut on June 15th, is a capsule collection of upcycled pieces created purely from discarded fabric, such as production cut-offs. It will use Topshop’s commitment stock of denim, cotton and jersey to create the range of s/s essentials and aims to highlight the issue of sustainability within the fashion industry.

The collection comprises eight pieces including a pair of ombre jeans, a tiered blouse and colour block maxi dress - perfect for festivals and jet-setting long weekends away. Inspirations for the range include a New York aesthetic, lace and mesh.

Buying director of Topshop, Emma Wisden, has said of the collab: "We are very excited about the launch of the first Topshop Reclaim To Wear range. The blueprint that Orsola and Filippo have developed with us will hopefully allow Topshop to scale this project and apply the learning across a broader section of the supply chain, for the next collection."

Reclaim to Wear was created in 1997 by From Somewhere as an eco solution to the problem of textile waste and to raise awareness of the environmental challenges we are facing.
