Here's what's got us talking this week...
PANGAIA DEBUTS ACTIVEWEAR
Pangaia unveils its first activewear line, offering a plant-based sustainable alternative to synthetic performance fabrications. The 80’s-inspired products in the collection are 90% bio-based using a blend of eucalyptus and seaweed; bio-based nylon made from castor oil. The sports bras, leggings, cycling shorts, and unitards are complete with a bio-based odour-fighting finish and antimicrobial wicking treatment.
Womenswear brand Nobody’s Child enters the childrenswear market with their new line, Somebody’s Child. The nine-piece summer collection replicates the brand’s womenswear looks in mini-me styles, including summer dresses and jumpsuits in voluminous shapes and nostalgic floral prints made from responsible fabrics. Nobody’s Child hopes that the kidswear launch will add an extra dimension to their womenswear ranges.
VEJA'S NEW RUNNING CLUB
Veja launches a new bio-based running sneaker named The Marlin, and a New York City running club when you sign up through Veja. The club begins at the Veja store in SoHo, where a trainer will accompany the attendees on a 5k run, finishing back at the store. The club has partnered with A Second U Foundation, a non-profit organization that trains formerly incarcerated people for jobs in the fitness industry.
British fashion designer Giles Deacon and working space operator IWG have partnered on a fashion capsule that re-imagines the future of workwear after the pandemic. The range blends comfort with smart silhouettes creating softly tailored pieces that ensure the wearer is comfortable. This collection is rooted in research, with the brand’s finding that 39% of workers are anticipating less formal clothing in the office due to hybrid working.
ALLYSON FELIX UNVEILS SHOE BRAND
American Olympic Athlete Allyson Felix has created an athleisure sneaker under the new shoe brand Saysh. The first sneaker launched under the brand ‘Saysh One’ has a comfort focus in a performance style with an elegant feel. The design of the debut shoe takes inspiration from feminine shapes and curved lines relating to a running track, bridging professional and casualwear. The campaign supporting the launch marries strength and femininity with the power to create change.
