Scandinavian brands have always been known and beloved for their sustainable ethos. This season, minimalist Danish label Birgitte Herskind taps influencer Vanessa Hong, who is also a passionate advocate of eco-conscious fashion, to create a chic capsule collection focused on hacking the highly polluting dyeing process in fashion.
Exclusive: Vanessa Hong Launches Sustainable Capsule With Danish Label Birgitte Herskind
“I’ve been working with manufacturers in Portugal for my own line for years, but the dyeing process has always been problematic. So for this collection with Vanessa, we either used coffee grains or eucalyptus plants for colour, or nothing at all. The wool fabrics are really hard to dye so we just used its natural colour, which gives it this soothing palette,” says Herskind.
The designer also shares that that everything in the collection, down to its paper tags, is made sustainably. The labels are made by only using wind-powered energy.
Hong and Herskind both share a love of yoga as well, which is why the capsule includes chic, taupe yoga separates as well as jumpsuits with Herskind's signature criss-cross back detail. From bralets to slinky knits to boxy corduroy suits, the collection is meant to work together to create the perfect gym-to-office uniform.
