Why to buy it: Years ago, Perpetummobile discovered a closed warehouse in the centre of Barcelona with damask, floral and striped fabrics that had once been used to cover mattresses and upholster furniture.
The social company used them to make household items and accessories. Now Perpetummobile presents two collections of clothing, using not the original fabrics but printing those that had proved to be best sellers. Their aesthetics, print and colors compose Perpetummobile's universe.
What we love: Perpetummobile is a social company with a business model that seeks an economic benefit to promote the training of people who need a second chance.
This loose-fitting, straight-cut Perpetummobile dress with Japanese motifs can be cinched at the waist with a large bow made of the same fabric. The yoke at the shoulders is ruched to give the dress its drape. It is made with 100% European cotton, woven and printed in Spain. Created in Perpetummobile's social workshop in Bilbao.
Why to Buy: Malo, the historic Florentine Maison specializing in cashmere knitwear, has long been recognized for its unwavering commitment to sustainability. With its latest collection, "The Art of Earth", Malo continues to champion sustainable practices, materials, and projects.
Malo's SS23 collection, "The Art of Earth," is inspired by the transformation and modeling of elements and the patient work of stylistic research on African origins. The collection is a tribute to the creativity, transformation, and life itself that springs from substance.
What we love: "The Art of Earth" features unisex sweaters with grainy knit stitches inspired by the weaves of Masai mats, mirrored motifs such as tribal embroideries, stitches inspired by Congo fishermen's nets, and soft and full cashmere tapes with details of great value. Malo’s new collection also features sustainable choices in materials, methods, and projects, such as the malfilé cotton, made from 24% pre-consumer recycled fibers and is GRS (Global Recycle Standard) certified, and hemp, a natural fiber with extraordinary thermal insulating, transpiring, and antibacterial properties.
