Summer is in full swing now we've entered July, and with the new season comes fresh fashion and beauty buys to help make this month your most stylish yet. I'm excited for creative concepts from MAC, Chanel and Benefit in the beauty arena, which will see my cosmetics bag take a trip around the world and beyond! My wardrobe will be getting an update with party-ready dresses, clothes with a conscience and bold new accessories from the likes of Stella McCartney, Mulberry, Marks and Spencer and Topshop. Take a look at what I'm lusting over this July, and tell me what's on your must have list!
Topshop's collaborations are coming thick and fast, with its collection with Reclaim To Wear launching today. Orsola de Castro and Filippo Ricci's eco fashion label has teamed up with the high street brand to create a debut upcycled capsule range made from discarded materials, like production off-cuts and surplus stock. The eight pieces are made from Topshop's staple materials of jersey, cotton and denim, and feature a tiered blouse in mixed fabrics, a colour block panel maxi dress, grey marl sweater with mismatching sleeves and a trio of ombre denim pieces including boy shorts, faded jeans and a slouchy rucksack. Orsola said:
"This is the first step towards the creation of zero waste design collections. I trust that the Topshop team’s commitment to new sustainable solutions will lead to the reconsidering of consumption versus disposal throughout the whole fashion industry supply chain."
Topshop hopes to scale the project and apply what it's learnt across a broader section of the supply chain next time. Take a look here, and tell me which is your favourite piece!
