SUPERMARKET FANCY - SHOPPING LETTER #3


The Cosmospolite - a series of sustainable shopping letters packed with links to the latest, coolest and newest brands, collections and boutiques to help you kick off your sustainable shopping spree.



 

September 2020


Dear peoples, As soon as leaves start to fall my wardrobe turns all black. Black leather pants, black chunky boots, black vintage coats. Everything goes black. An old habit I decided to get rid of this season. My latest style edit covers my research for a more colourful autumn wardrobe. All ethically produced with care for the planet. Of course!


The Cosmospolite is off course more than a highly curated collection of the coolest sustainable clothes. On a deeper level - to me - it is also about fighting justice and equality. Something so profoundly out of balance within the fashion industry. Find two current initiatives fighting this actively - that made me happy

And Reading all the way to the end will be rewarded with a shoe shopping discount code!
