PEOPLE TREE X VICTORIA & ALBERT MUSEUM COLLABORATION

For Autumn Winter 2017, People Tree has designed a unique and feminine eight piece capsule collection in conjunction with the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Inspired by the 1930’s, this limited edition collection is based on fashionable patterns of the era, celebrating the heritage of the thirties with a contemporary twist. Key to the collection are romantic long and lean shapes with subtle ruffle details. The prints are based on dress fabrics from 1934, originally by the Calico Printer’s Association in Manchester, England and are now held in archive at the V&A Museum.

Seed print story features four designs in 100% organic certified cotton – a ruffle dress, ruffle back shirt, coat dress and wide leg trouser.

Tulip print story features four designs in 100% Tencel® – ruffle back jumpsuit, smock dress, peplum top and maxi skirt. Tencel® is a luxury cellulose fibre made from wood pulp. The fibre production is extremely eco-friendly due to the closed loop manufacturing system used.

All styles of the collaboration are made by Creative Handicrafts, based in India. Founded in 1984, this dynamic organisation helps low income women in the slums of Mumbai achieve economic independence by training and creating jobs.

Delivery in July 2017.

L’HERBE ROUGE FW16-17

The L’Herbe Rouge collection for Fall/Winter 2016-2017 ‘to the other shore’ was inspired by lakes, bays, natural streams and oceans. The effect on human wellbeing of these natural resources is enormous; travels, bathing, cures but also drinking water reservoirs. L’Herbe Rouge translated this inspiration in a collection with beautiful fabric structures (from smooth organic cotton to chunky knits made of recycled yarns) and a colour palette inspired by these water reservoirs and it’s shores.

Setting an example for the fashion industry in regards to fabrics choices and manufacturing processes L’Herbe Rouge helps to protect large amounts of fresh water.
