H&M's Conscious maintains sustainability

Sustainability is a long term trend at H & M Hennes & Mauritz AB and this April as part of the focus on sustainability H&M will introduce the Conscious Collection - The collection which is for women, men and children is made from enviromentally - adapted and greener materials such as organic cotton, Tencel and recycled polyester.

H&M's designers have been inspired by different shades of white, one of the most important colours this Spring. A minimalist, tailored look is combined with romantic lace, Broderie Anglaise, frills and draping. The Conscious Collection will be on sale in all H&M stores from 14th April.

“It's not just about organic cotton any more, the possibilities for creating a complete fashion statement with eco smarter materials are huge now. By designing recurring Conscious Collections we have the opportunity to show in a variety of ways what's possible using more sustainable fabrics,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M Head of design.

“Shades of white are the season's biggest fashion trend and it feels right for this collection. White creates a romantic feeling with lace and Broderie Anglaise, but is also the basic colour in a sporty, relaxed style and in a preppy tailored look for men.”

Womenswear is inspired by an updated romantic style in which blouses, tunics and T-shirts with Broderie Anglaise are a key trend. Tiered dresses are perfect for day or more dramatic Grecian gowns for night. Long floaty skirts are key as are cut-off shorts. The collection also includes the perfect white blazer and pleated trousers for a more minimalist look as well as Broderie Anglaise and lace lingerie.

Menswear takes on a preppy mood with a white two-button blazer, collarless shirts and T-shirts with Henley detailing at the neck. There are printed and striped T-shirts, as well as a tank top for layering and trousers are either five-pocket jeans or tailored. Meanwhile the Children's collection is full of white pieces for both girls and boys.

It's all about tiered dresses, tops, skirts for girls, and for boys t-shirts and jeans.The Conscious Collection is a continous collection that will feature at different times and within different ranges. The Spring collection is a follow-up to last year's successful Garden Collection of sustainable style.
