Reformation Cozies Up to La Ligne with 100 Percent Recycled Sweaters

Reformation is on a collaboration spree.

Mere weeks after feting partnerships with Bulgarian footwear company By Far and secondhand e-tailer ThredUp, the eco-friendly It Girl fave is trumpeting yet another tandem effort. This time? A range of sweaters it’s producing with La Ligne, the stripe-loving, New York City-based brand founded by two former Vogue editors.

The six-piece capsule—which favors a relaxed, slightly cropped silhouette—includes a mock-neck with twisted ribbing, an Aran cable crewneck with balloon sleeves and a turtleneck with color-blocked stripes and ribbed cuffs.

True to Reformation’s planet-pandering ethos, each $228 sweater comprises a 100 percent recycled blend of cotton and polyester. The yarn hails from Prato in Italy and is derived from “things like discarded plastic bottles, industrial waste and used denim cuts,” the company wrote in a Facebook post.

“It looks (and feels) way better than it sounds,” Reformation added.

According to the company’s RefScale, which tracks each product’s environmental footprint, a single pullover saves up to 20 pounds of carbon dioxide and 2,179 gallons of water compared with a similar garment made using virgin materials. There are no contentious materials such as wool or the increasingly shunned mohair, which should please the animal-rights lobby. 

“It’s getting cold-ish,” Reformation said. “Hope you’re ready to get cozy.”
