Topshop introduces upcycled collection with Reclaim to Wear

A new (extremely tempting) capsule collection from Reclaim to Wear and Topshop launches on Friday, 15th June. The upcycled line is made entirely from off-cuts, discarded materials and surplus stock and is available at topshop.com.

The collection includes a tiered blouse in mixed fabrics, a colour-block panel maxi dress and a range of denim pieces including ombre-bleached boy-shorts and a slouchy denim rucksack - all crying out for a stomp around a festival.  
The brains behind Reclaim to Wear are Orsola de Castro and Filippo Ricci, who since 2011 have helped retailers to understand the impact of the waste they generate. By developing upcycled concept lines, Reclaim to Wear has ensured that large amounts of fabric, which would have been thrown away, is no longer landfill. 

The textiles and fashion industry is one of the world's biggest polluters so Reclaim to Wear is making a positive impact by slowing down unnecessary textile production.

Creative Director Orsola de Castro, and Managing Director Filippo Ricci are also the founders and curators of Estethica, The British Fashion Council eco-sustainable initiative at the heart of London Fashion Week.
