During last week’s New York fashion week, avant-garde label SANS combined references as obscure as German comedy with eco-friendly fabrics, pushing the boundaries of sustainable style. As older eco brands such as ThreeAsFour start to become more refined and commercial, it is comforting to have a groundbreaking label such as SANS to fearlessly pick up the torch and continue pushing fashion forward. This year’s collection proved that SANS is still the go-to label for the intellectual fashionista that requires a no-frills, modern look to accompany her downtown eco-lifestyle.

This season SANS show was hosted at Bumble & Bumble, which provided hair that was as imaginative as the clothing. SANS may be far from accessible to the average consumer, but something tells us that suits the design duo just fine.
