Seen on the arms of celebrities around the world, LA-based brand JW Pei has reimagined some of its collections for Earth Day. The Shea Checkerboard Knitted Tote Bag has been created in 100% recycled materials (each constructed using 10 post-consumer recycled plastic bottles) and comes available in four different colourways: Brown, Ice & Yellow, Dark Green & Ice and Dark Green & Green & Ice. The pieces are produced in one entire piece three-dimensionally directly on the knitting machine, preventing waste material such as cut loss and seam allowance to promote waste-free production.

Karl Lagerfeld and Amber Valletta have teamed up once again for a sustainable capsule collection just in time for Earth Day. Valletta, who has been known as a long-time muse to the late designer, is a sustainability ambassador so the collection showcases elevated, ready-to-wear investment pieces and accessories that are crafted from organic and recycled materials – think organic cotton produced without the use of harmful chemicals, recycled fibres that promote circularity, and a cactus-derived alternative to leather expertly engineered by Desserto. The collection features tailored suits, jumpsuits, shirts and separates, alongside handbags that will compliment any sartorial look of your choice.

"I think ultimately we all want to feel good about what we buy and do in life. And offering consumers an opportunity to buy something that is well-made, timeless, but also sustainable, is the benchmark for everything," says the model.
