Today H&M started a global initiative for collecting clothes! Anyone can drop of old clothes, H&M clothes or other, at chosen stores and thus contribute to saving natural resources and decrease environmental waste. This fantastic idea is carried out in cooperation with Beckmans School of Design att you can read more about it here. We truly need more companies in the fashion industry to work towards a sustainable future. So think about tomorrow today and buy ethical jewellery and clothing.
Idag påbörjade H&M ett globalt initiativ för klädinsamling! Vemsomhelst kan lämna kläder, både från H&M och andra, på utvalda butiker och därmed bidra till besparing av naturresurser och minska miljömässigt slöseri. Den här fantastiska idéen driver de tillsammans med Beckmans Designskola och du kan läsa mer om den här. Vi behöver verkligen fler företag inom modeindustrin som kämpar för en mer hållbar framtid. Så tänk på morgondagen redan idag och handla etiska smycken och kläder.
A continuation of a post I made a couple of weeks ago: You can find new ways to use the clothes and accessories you already own and in that way make your wardrobe a lot more fun! This is my dose of creativity; I transformed my lovely pearl necklace and turned it into a belt. The creative mode also made me draw a bit on my wrist, I guess one idea triggers another…
There is a special feeling to wearing vintage clothing. Not necessarily just because the word “vintage” is trendy or the fact that buying used clothes is a great action against the wear and tear era. But it’s rather the affectional value that the garment carries when your buy it, which for new clothes takes quite a while to build up. Nevertheless I still belong to the wide crowd of people that absolutely roll in feelings of happiness and (temporary) satisfaction whenever buying a new piece of clothing but that is usually with the somewhat bitter notion that someone else might just buy it the second after I do. Bitterly not unique. Buying a rare vintage jacket on the other hand strongly decreases the risk of seeing someone else wearing it (and god forbid looking even better in it than I) in the next supermarket.
Yesterday I bought a second hand jacket from the 60’s on SociaTea. Wonder where my new old jacket has been and what stories it has heard?
