Sustainability can be too often used as a fashion industry buzzword, but at Black we love to showcase designers truly leading by example, from making locally with transparent supply chains to working with certified organic fabrics and trims to paying workers a fair wage, the brands in this editorial practice what they preach, there’s no green-washing here.
Top to toe, fashion editor Chris Lorimer styles seasonless looks, featuring consciously made jewellery by Holly Ryan and Momoko Hatano alongside the restrained silhouettes meets bold textile combinations of Collective Closets, the stylish workwear of Melbourne’s Denimsmith and Chief Studio’s romantic nostalgia completed internationally renowned trainers brand Veja and heels by Rafa. Select thifted pieces also play their part in affirming our love for the circular economy, giving a garment it’s second (or third) life.
