The fashion industry has long been scrutinised for its sustainability actions. And with an increase in demand for sustainable fashion by millennials and Gen Z, it’s become almost mandatory for luxury powerhouses to implement practices and produce clothes that are eco-friendly.
One label that’s doing this is Longchamp, which will be releasing its eco-conscious Green District collection in August. The collection comprises 10 bags made with Econyl, a trademarked regenerated nylon yarn made from ocean waste. The French maison uses Econyl produced by engineering company Aquafil.
“Our current innovation efforts are aimed at improving our processes and materials to reduce our environmental footprint,” says Jean Cassegrain, CEO of Longchamp. “Through the use of recycled fabrics, we are able to achieve the same level of quality as traditional fabrics.”
Here, the five bags to get to showcase your stylish and sustainable side, for both work and play.
