Check out who’s raising the bar on eco- and ethical awareness – some of the names just might surprise you.
Like most people, once I find a certain brand of jeans that works for my body type, there’s no looking back. Upon first try-on of a pair of AG Adriano Goldschmied’s skinnies, I knew it was going to be a long-lasting relationship. What I didn’t know (but was happy to find out) was that AG makes each piece in its collections using Ozone Technology, a manufacturing system that reduces the average chemical and water usage in denim production by more than 50 percent. What’s more, everything from first sketch to final grommet is completed at the brand’s L.A. headquarters, making it a genuinely ‘Made in the USA’ label. For spring, AG enlisted stylist Cher Coulter (whose clients include Kate Bosworth and Elizabeth Olsen) and Liberty London (of floral-print fame) for two separate and seriously chic collaborations. Denim’s so hot right now – time to get some that does a body, and the world, good.
