Nau offers up recycled weather-protection in some great cuts. Created from post-consumer and post-industrial polyester waste, these jackets employ cradle-to-cradle ECOCIRCLE® technology, so that at the end of a long life it can be sent back to Nau and recycled once again into polyester fibers for reuse. Unfortunately, some Nau products contain cruel and exploitative down and merino wool, so stick to these cruelty-free choices:

This incredible, new “Leo” boot from Novacas is a landmark in mens’ vegan shoes. This is what we’ve been waiting for! A simple, classic lace up boot that looks great casually half-laced with a pair of fitted jeans, or laced up completely under slacks. Thanks for setting a new standard, Novacas! Thanks to reader, Adnan for the tip!

G-STAR, Mjolk, B.Son, RCVA

September 25, 2009

G-STAR is known for its urban, experimental approach to denim and it’s technical, decorative stitching and embellishments. The men’s collection features organic denim jackets, shirts and jeans. This organic vintage shirt does not disappoint, and would look fantastic on your walk for animals.

RVCA created a vegan studded pleather duffle bag that can carry all the anti-fur pamphlets you’ll hand out this autumn and winter, in style.

Sometimes Autumn weather can throw you for a loop. A short sleeve hoodie is a good compromise. These organic cotton hoodies from San Francisco’s B.Son can do the trick while apple-picking or partying with the turkeys at Thanksliving.

If you’ve gotta just roll up your sleeves and fight the good fight for wild horses, I love the wooden toggle-sleeve on this organic cotton shirt from the Australian line, Mjolk.

Drop-crotch seems to be coming up all over the place. People either love it or hate it, and it’s a pretty loud trend in Europe and Australia. Mjolk offers up these organic cotton jersey trousers. If slouch is not your thing, don’t worry. If you’re a risk-taker, dive in do some dancing in celebration of the 4.5 million animals recently saved from cruel experiments.

April77 DIY Denim Party at OAK NYC

September 15, 2009

FNO_OAK The April77 party at Oak was on the top-10 parties list (Refinery29)  for Fashion’s Night Out, kicking off fashion week. I met up with Tommy Über of April77 at OAK to chat and check out some denim customizing!

Concerning April77’s creator and designer, Brice Partouche being a long-time vegetarian and recent convert to vegan, and making a cruelty-free shoe line, Tommy Über had this to say:

We don’t make any leather... It’s important to see the vision of someone that really carries his personal causes into a clothing line… And that’s why people love April77 – because it’s engaged. – Tommy Über, APRIL77

The current April77 collection does have wool, but Brice personally ensured me that all future collections will be free from animal products.

Victoria Bartlett, VPL SS10

VPL01It’s Fashion week in NYC! Here is my interview with Victoria Bartlett about her show at the Chelsea Piers for Spring/Summer 2010.

In regard to her sponsorship by the Humane Society of the United States, she had this to say:

“I’ve always been anti-fur – I love my pets…and I could never see them being worn. It’s a very human time right now, and what’s the sense in more carnage? There are other things in life to celebrate and design doesn’t have to be draped with dead animals.” – Voctoria Bartlett
