Sustainability and fashion are two ways for a denim designer to stand out in a sea of blue.
Earth Fit fabrics are made with organic cotton, pre- and post-consumer recycled cotton and recycled polyester from plastic bottles. Several fabrics in the range have been awarded the Nordic Swan EU Ecolabel, which evaluates a product’s total lifecycle from raw material to recycling, taking into account environmental problems in each part of the supply chain.
The Ksenia Schnaider x Isko collection is based on “eco-interpretations” of the brand’s best-selling jeans over the past three years and styles that have become favorites of fashion week goers and fashion media.
The line includes frayed jean shorts, cropped jean jackets, slim jeans or “demi-denims” with exaggerated slit knees and wide jeans with a slight high-low hem and fringe. The line also introduces new color options. Garments retail for $320-$450.
Ksenia Schnaider, designed by husband and wife team Ksenia and Anton Schnaider, landed on the radar of U.S. media outlets this winter for $375 asymmetrical jeans—a made-to-order silhouette that features one slim leg and one wide leg. The label is also responsible for raising the profile of shredded denim, or “denim fur.”
Isko’s Earth Fit fabric collection includes 49 sustainable versions of fabrics from the mill’s popular product lines, including its body-shaping Blueskin, comfort stretch Reform, Arquas activewear and Jeggings categories.
