The best of spring fash­ion

We can’t go past the bold prints and tai­lored take on pa­jama suit­ing from Kate Sylvester’s “All my Heart” range. A mem­ber of the Sus­tain­able Busi­ness Net­work, the com­pany has im­ple­mented sus­tain­abil­ity mea­sures to re­duce waste. From low emis­sion ve­hi­cles to a worm farm, at Kate Sylvester they be­lieve it’s the lit­tle things that make a big dif­fer­ence. From the doyenne of eco-fash­ion, Lau­rie Foon’s Com­mon Thread col­lec­tion for Starfish of­fers asym­met­ric pe­plums, leg length­en­ing trousers and kooky prints in sug­ar­spun sor­bet shades. Starfish is known for its ded­i­ca­tion to cre­at­ing clothes that will last a life­time and stocks la­bels that align with their sus­tain­abil­ity philoso­phies. The boys at Gus don cham­bray shirts, bowties and smart neu­trals for their SINK SWIM col­lec­tion. This range is made in New Zealand and comes all wrapped up in earth friendly pa­per; af­ter work­ing with Sus­tain­able Coast­lines and see­ing the ef­fects of plas­tic on the en­vi­ron­ment the crew has adopted a no plas­tics pol­icy.
