The fashion industry is known for being responsible for how you’d like to dress, whether you’re aware of it or not. Cue Miranda Priestly for those who need a concise explanation as to how. But unlike some fashion movements many would deem too adventurous or worse, the biggest and most important trend of late — sustainability, is something most if not all of us can definitely get behind.
In these coming weeks, look out for these launches from some of your favourite apparel retailers to participate in making mindful purchases that contribute to environmental conservation in different ways, while making you look and feel greater.
Wardrobe staples are something we simply can’t live without because we’d be walking around like nudists otherwise. Amongst the most quintessential pieces that we wear again and again, or are able to dress up or down easily is the white t-shirt, so it’s important that we buy something quality-assured that we can revisit over the test of time — and of course, to stop contributing to the environmentally-damaging practice of fast fashion waste.
Minimal and unassumingly luxe fashion label COS is offering the White T-Shirt Project this season with a series of white-shirts for men and women made entirely from organic cotton. Synonymous with effortless style and immaculate craftsmanship, each of the designs in this collection plays on stylish silhouettes that promise comfort and fit as an easy go-to for any occasion you find yourself in. Available in a total of 7 styles, make a considered purchase of one of these to incorporate as part of your wardrobe favourites that you’re bound to love more and more over time.
The COS White T-Shirt Project collection for Men’s and Women’s will be available from 17 April in-stores islandwide and ONLINE.
