Pantone’s fall 2018 colour trend report features bold and vibrant colours for the season. It is no surprise to see the return of jewel tones like shades of burgundy, teal, olive and purple. A few surprises include the continued trend of a lilac floral colour that was everywhere in Spring 2018. The lilac along with shades of yellow make it that much easier to transition pieces from your spring wardrobe into the autumn season. Consider pairing (and layering) yellow with burgundy or lilac with darker shades of purple.

At Bay & Harbour, you will find many pieces that are on trend in many ways, including the colours of the season. Have a look at some of our favourite picks!

London’s V&A Museum to curate an exhibit on fashion and nature #Fashion #Nature #V&AMuseum #ethicalfashion #environment #sustainable #eco

The Victoria & Albert Museum, one of London’s most prestigious museums, is getting set to host an exhibition titled Fashioned from Nature, which will “trace the complex relationship between fashion and the natural world” from the 1600s to present day.

Running from April 21, 2018 to January 27, 2019, the exhibition will explore how designers draw inspiration from nature and highlight those that have championed ethically conscious fashion. The exhibition is supposed to examine the fashion industry’s impact on the environment and the influence of changing attitudes on the production process. The exhibit will also educate patrons on natural fibers and their uses over the years, offering solutions not just highlighting problems.

Having had success with fashion-themed exhibitions in the past (Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion; Undressed: A Brief History of UnderwearClub to Catwalk: London Fashion in the 1980s), we are excited to see what the museum is able to offer this time. We believe this is an exceptional platform to raise awareness and educate people on the power of sustainable fashion.

Can high fashion ever be ethical? #Ethicalfashion #highstreetfashion #fashion #Sustainablity #Environment

In recent news, high fashion retailer Gucci announced they have plans to discontinue the use of real fur. This grand gesture is not unique, as countless other high fashion labels have already gone ‘vegan’ but it does show a willingness to evolve with consumer preference.

As each brand makes such commitments to change the way they produce and what they sell, the industry will finally follow the direction it needs to. However, is this change happening fast enough?

An author for the Independent has recently argued that in actuality, the whole purpose of high fashion contradicts the ethical fashion movement (see here – http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/gucci-fur-ban-sustainable-ethical-high-fashion-designers-brands-no-point-a7998856.html):

“A ban by Gucci will make no difference whatsoever to the number of animals farmed for their coats. As for “saving the environment”, the airmiles and travelling involved in photographing ad campaigns for luxury brands, the copious packaging which cocoons their products, the glass and steel and non-environmentally friendly materials used to construct their retail outlets… well I could go on and on, but you get the point…

…When they stop selling over-packaged cosmetics in thick cardboard boxes and paying women in the developing world to produce their diffusion ranges for a pittance – then they can talk about ethics and the environment. High fashion is about producing and selling stuff we don’t really need – so the ideal of less consumption (and less waste) is not going to be a winning philosophy, is it?”

And so, we grapple with a few questions: Is the pace of change enough? What more should retailers and labels be doing? Is it even a realistic goal for such brands to embrace ethical as a way of doing business?

Let us know your thoughts.

HomeGiftbox-2017

With Halloween just around the corner, retail stores are already filling up with gifting ideas for your loved ones for the holiday season. This is a great time to remind the special people in your lives what they mean to you – whether that be through goods, gestures or words. This is also a good time to think sustainable.

As you pick out the perfect gifts – consider where and how the product has been produced, what materials it is made up of and the impact its disposal will have on the environment. Consider fair trade and sustainable brands to replace fast fashion products. Share the stories behind the brands and products you support.

Think about how you can use your dollar to not only improve the lives of others, but make a sustainable, long-lasting difference. This holiday season we encourage you to shop ethical, shop wisely and enable change everywhere.

How to make ethical and eco-friendly clothing choices

“In recent decades, the fashion sector has managed to become one of the most damaging industries in the world on both a social and environmental level. Clothing companies turn over stock at rapid speeds and low prices in what is known as ‘fast fashion’ in order to attract large volumes of business and make the high profits they desire. This tactic results in vast quantities of clothing ending up in landfills.

In order for companies to maintain the low prices that western consumers demand, they outsource manufacturing to the global south to employ workers who earn meager wages and work in dangerous conditions. While many are aware of these injustices, it often feels overwhelming for those of us embedded in fast fashion and consumer culture to address this issue.

Here is a compilation of tips to help you promote a more ethical and sustainable clothing industry through your daily habits, thereby making the process of instigating change a less daunting task.”
