H&M Fall 2019 Conscious Collection extends sustainability credentials
H&M’s Fall 2019 Conscious Collection has exemplified the firm’s commitment to only use sustainably sourced materials by 2030 with pieces made from recycled materials or materials that have less impact on the environment.
From the softly tailored check separates to the animal print dresses and oversized hoodies, all in a colour palette of light neutrals, black and pops of orange-red, H&M’s new vibe is laid back yet sophisticated.
The H&M Fall 2019 Conscious Collection launches in September and will be available worldwide, in store and online. Recycled polyester, most often made from used PET bottles, is the key material for the collection, found in the dresses, shirts, knitwear, outerwear and tailored pieces.
“The H&M Fall 2019 Conscious Collection is all about the timeless classics and wardrobe staples you never get tired of,” said H&M’s head of design womenswear Maria Östblom. “Long-lasting design in more sustainable materials and the autumn must-haves you need to update your wardrobe.”
“We want to use our size to lead the change towards circular and renewable fashion,” said the firm’s global sustainability manager Pascal Brun. “The H&M Fall 2019 Conscious Collection is an amazing example of how far we have come with technology and innovations replacing conventional materials with recycled alternatives.”
