Conscious style, and natural- and long lasting materials are the focus of this feature with Kim. Timeless and minimalistic garments are not only sustainable in their versatility, they are also the cornerstone of Scandinavian style.
The items worn by Kim are all from Filippa K, and present a wonderful palette of different shades of white. A stretchy pair of skinny high waisted jeans styled with a light pullover made from a cotton silk slub yarn. This knit exudes an effortless and luxurious vibe and is easily added to any styling and is, therefore, a perfect choice for the typical Scandinavian summer weather.
Filippa K is offering multiple ways for their customers to be conscious about what they consume, and at their website, you are now able to read about each supplier, factory and track the path of your garment. Information like this increases the value to an already sustainable piece of clothing, and the transparency makes it easier for consumers to make informed choices. Furthermore, Filippa K runs sustainable fashion campaigns such as “lease” which is offered in selected stores. Instead of a full purchase, simply lease anything you want for 4 days at 20% of the full price. This clever concept is perfect for when you are looking for a specific piece or style for a special event, but don’t feel the need for another addition to your wardrobe. Furthermore, Fillipa K works towards a goal of having their entire collection sustainable by 2030 - from materials to cutting and the traceability within every phase of the production.
Kim is also wearing sneakers from danish footwear brand Nature. They have a clean, minimalistic look, offer great comfort due to the foot formed shape, and are additionally made with a sustainable mindset - the outsoles are made of recycled materials and shoelaces are made of old plastic bottles. Putting the finishing touches on this outfit, and being an advocate for sharing garments with her other half, Kim is adding her oversized jeans jacket from Levi’s. Purchased in a second-hand store in Copenhagen, an item like this is a great investment! The jacket is worn just as frequently by herself as her boyfriend and offers a sustainable spin on everyday style.
