The highlight of New York Fashion Week for sustainable style aficionados had to be the SANS show, which took place this Saturday at the Daryl Roth theatre in Union Square. We loved SANS’ spring line so much, we couldn’t help but have the highest hopes for the Fall collection of eco-friendly fashion, which utilizes all organic and sustainable materials such as bamboo, tussah silk, and organic cotton and wool, in innovative, deconstructed shapes. As anticipated, the SANS show didn’t disappoint. Read on for highlights from the fall collection…
SANS Double Faced Wool Coat, paired with holey soy socks and United Nude shoes
In addition to the great socks, there were plenty of covetable overcoats and dresses on display here, such as the double-faced wool coat, the puffy white wool coat, and the beautiful silver silk dress paired with holey socks and charcoal alpaca gloves.
As expected, SANS had plenty of bold, architectural, deconstructed items that were gorgeous but hard to imagine wearing on the street. I loved this Princess Amidala-ish Lemon Yellow Silk dress, but imagine it would take a daring individual to pull it off.
More practical and wearable was this adorable wool pouch jacket with the perfect built in hand warmer that could do double duty as mini marsupial storage.
We also liked this baby blue alpaca sweater shown above.
This slouchy sillk blouse and pant combination was quite beautiful and would make a great alternative to a dress for more formal occasions.
SANS’ spring line will be available at a number of New York City retail stores starting in March, including Inhabitat’s neighborhood eco-retailer Kaight.
