Fashion brand Dsquared2 has announced details of its new environmentally conscious capsule collection, ONE LIFE ONE PLANET.
As designers committed to making a more responsible contribution to the fashion industry, Dsquared2 Creative Directors Dean and Dan Caten pull from years of extensive research into reducing environmental impact and maximising social impact with a new collection of men’s and women’s sweatshirts, T-shirts, joggers and shorts made of recycled and ethically sourced cotton.
Commenting on the collection, the Dsquared2 team says: “We started with the creative process, looking at fabrics which reduce, for certain aspects, their environmental impact and at innovative ways to process and finish products.”
To ensure all materials in the capsule are organic and responsibly sourced, the ONE LIFE ONE PLANET collection uses GOTS-certified organic cotton for the graphic printed T-shirts and sweatshirts, each of which is available to purchase in a selection of spring-inspired colours. Bomber jackets and jerseys are made from a mix of recycled cotton and recycled nylon.
In a move that’s intended to elevate the brand’s denim line, the label is also using a new organic cotton-drill that promises extra comfort for customers, with all jeans made from an innovative stretch yarn spun with more than 50% recycled content.
Overall, the fabrics and dyes used are all certified by international voluntary standards.
Launched simultaneously alongside the new collection comes a special capsule for Spring Summer 2022, featuring a smiley face graphic with a green maple leaf.
Transcending both gender and season, the ONE LIFE ONE PLANET ‘Smiley collection’ includes sweatshirts, T-shirts, joggers and shorts for men and women made of recycled and organic cotton, respectively GRS, GOTS or OCS certified. Accessories featured include espadrilles, sneakers, bucket bags and totes, belts, baseball caps and a bandana.
The ONE LIFE ONE PLANET capsule launches this April in all Dsquared2 stores, online and in selected retailers worldwide.
