Every year, H&M creates a limited edition collection—the Conscious Exclusive collection—that isn’t just all about looking pretty, but incorporates a message about sustainability and is the testing ground for many new, groundbreaking fabrications and materials that have the potential to change the way we look at the world. The 2016 edition of the Swedish fashion brand’s Conscious Exclusive label is no different: First, there’s Denimite, a new material made from recycled denim fibres and turned into accessories for the collection; jacquards spun from recycled fibres; the company’s own signature tencel material is whipped into pants and shoes with a satin-finish (adore!); and, as always,organic cotton is a mainstay of the collection that gives both fashionable weight and function to the clothes. From versatile shift dresses embellished with recycled glass beads to Denimite earrings and slip-on flats (huge for Spring 2016) made of the aforementioned tencel material, here’s our pick of the 10 pieces in the collection that will definitely be on everyone’s shopping list come April.
The 2016 H&M Conscious Exclusive collection will be available at H&M Orchard Building from 7 April 2016.
