Topshop x Reclaim To Wear
British retail giant Topshop is to launch an upcycled capsule collection in collaboration with sustainable fashion company Reclaim To Wear on June 15.
The Topshop Reclaim To Wear collection transforms Topshop’s surplus stock of jersey, denim and cotton into new designs. The collection of eight pieces will launch exclusively on Topshop.com with prices starting at £32 ($49).
Reclaim To Wear was launched in 1997 by Orsola de Castro and Filippo Ricci, who founded eco label From Somewhere. The company aims to reduce unnecessary fabric production by repurposing what has already been made. It offers clothes made from discarded fabrics and materials that might otherwise be thrown away.
Emma Wisden, buying director at Topshop, said: “The blueprint that Orsola and Filippo have developed with us will hopefully allow Topshop to scale the project and apply the learning across a broader section of the supply chain, for the next collection.”
