Autumn-Winter 23-24 : Sustainability

Upstream fashion is teeming with ingenuity and bouncing back in a context of disrupted supply chains to achieve results with lower impacts, both in terms of raw materials as well as the production cycle.
Traceability brings environmental, social and animal welfare data to the fore as the pillars of sustainable reconstruction.
Ancestral plant fibers such as hemp, nettles and abaca are being brought up to date, and the by-products of pineapple, grapes, sugar cane and olives are used to produce new fibers and materials or tanning agents.
Color is a central theme in a winter that focuses as much on the raw beauty of the original shades of resources as on richly colored new technologies. Plant or production residues are upcycled as dyeing ingredients, combining with more energy efficient procedures. Innovation tends towards micro-organisms to produce dazzling shades through fermentation.
Finishes tend towards mechanical processes, using calendaring, rubbing, polishing, boarding or sanding to underline the natural characteristics of the fabrics, leather or accessories components. Chemical processes are focused on tried and tested products to remove any risky items such as solvents, perfluorinated components or glutaraldehyde.
By progressively implementing environmental management and adopting promising innovations at every step, the sustainable vision of the sector is coming to life.
