Just like you, we want our clothes to make us feel as good as how we look. This is why we’re all about shining the light on the sustainable fashion brands that are changing the fashion scene, one consciously-made garment at a time.
Our Fashion Editor Hannah Tan-Gillies has rounded a few of our top eco-friendly shopping picks so you can maximise your trans-seasonal style and minimise your carbon footprint too.
British knitwear brand Lyle & Scott, who hold a Royal Warrant for knitwear, has done an incredible job of modernising its range for the new age. Founded in Hawick Scotland 150 years ago, this heritage brand has a pretty cool womenswear line, made up of easy-to-wear, casual and contemporary leisurewear is made with 100% organic cotton.
Not only has Lyle & Scott made its way to our sustainable fashion radar, but it has also surely carved out a permanent spot in our pre-fall wardrobes too. Oh — and did we mention that Lyle & Scott has several cool collabs to watch out for too?
Sustainable luxury footwear brand INUIKKI offers a range of contemporary footwear that was designed in Switzerland and made in Europe. All of INUIKKI’s products are made with organic materials and balance form and function with timeless style. Whether you are comfy in a pair of classic sneakers or well-protected in a pair of all-terrain boots – you know that your Inuikki footwear is made to last.
Sustainable French brand Gaâla is a favourite of our Fashion Editor Hannah Tan-Gillies. This brand has just released a vintage-inspired capsule collection with model/photographer/artist Shirinita Altsohn which exudes that effortless French girl style and takes inspiration from some of the screen sirens of the Golden Age of Cinema. We like the Corinne Dress (inspired by Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Doris Day), the Lauren Skirt, (inspired by Lauren Bacall) and the Shirin dress, inspired by the glamorous gowns of the 1930s and 1940s.
Isabel Manns is all about bright, colourful and sustainable seasonless clothing. This contemporary womenswear brand has its home in Marylebone and is underpinned by designer Isabel’s own personal commitment to building a 100% circular fashion label. Most of the prints in Isabel Mann’s beautiful silk creations were painted by Isabel herself, taking inspiration from her parent’s garden and the natural world. We love the beautiful silk dresses, tops, and skirts – made in plenty of different fabrics that can be customised to suit your personal tastes too.

Circular, sustainable and with a wonderfully raw aesthetic, no two bags are alike at Emotional World, ensuring a luxury purchase that even the world’s most prestigious fashion houses can’t provide
