Esprit expects the pieces to become wardrobe mainstays. Denim items, which include a jumpsuit, a dress, a jacket and coat, a fitted shirt, skinny pants, and chino trousers are derived from 43 percent recycled cotton.

A selection of jersey tops, which feature details like boatnecks and kimono sleeves, offer a blend of recycled cotton from Esprit’s T-shirt production line and recycled polyester. In another low-impact move, Esprit chose not to re-dye the T-shirt fabrics, creating a heathered look instead of solid colors.

In another partnership with Redress, all garment hangtags will include a Quick Response code that links to the organization’s R Certificate website, where customers can view details about Esprit’s supply chain.

“The ‘Recycled Collection by Esprit 2014’ combines great looking fashion for every day, important sustainability practices, and a story that inspires on multiple levels,” Esprit adds.

Prices start at €59.99 ($76) for denim and €29.99 ($38) for jersey styles.
