I hardly post about fashion here on my blog since this, as you very well know, is mainly a “travel and food” site. But, there are always a couple of exceptions especially when it touches topics close to my heart such as our efforts to care for our environment.
As an avid traveler and lover of nature, I found the recent launch of the H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection 2016 quite significant considering their efforts and reasons behind this line of clothing.
The H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection 2016
H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection 2016 was recently launched at Mega Fashion Hall.
The H&M design team has delved into the museum’s fashion archives to pick up key pieces from the past three centuries of haute couture. This collection effortlessly merges a sense of history with modernity.
Launched to coincide with the opening of the exhibition Fashion Forward – 300 years of Fashion at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, to which it pays homage, the collection conveys a sense of painterly and sophisticated elegance.
This collection is made of sustainable materials – rhinestones and beads that are made from recycled glass. They also use Denimite also – a fabric that’s made from worn-out denim and H&M is the first fashion brand to use this kind.
The collection is already available in approximately 180 stores worldwide and online.
Here is a preview of the beautiful collection.
Jacquard-weave Silk-blend coat (Php9,990.00)

Lyocell and Silk Dress (Php4,490.00)
Short dress in woven fabric made from Tencel® lyocell and mulberry silk and with glittery threads.
Beaded Satin Skirt (Php5,490.00)
Knee-length skirt in thick satin made partly from recycled polyester with partly recycled glass beads.
And this is my favorite! Embroidered Silk-Blend Dress (Php7,990.00)
Blend of Tencel® and organic silk with glass bead embroideries from recycled glass.
For the Denimite product, this clip earrings is made from metal and denimite.
So, what makes the H&M Conscious line special and worth considering? Because they produce products using sustainable and recyclable materials. H&M Conscious’ 7 conscious commitments are the following:
