H&M’s New Upcycled, Green Line

So, I’ve written about H&M several times on this blog. The Swedish clothing retailer is pretty much the IKEA of fashion- they produce high-style clothing at ultra-low prices.

My beef with them has to do with the time they threw out unsold clothing instead of donating it, and their ultra-low prices on disposable clothing. Today, though, I’m really happy to report some good news about H&M, who appear to be turning over a new leaf in response to the bad PR they got last year.

Let me introduce you to the Waste Collection, H&M’s new line made using upcycled fabrics.

For this collection, H&M took scrap materials from their sought-after Lanvin line and used them to create a limited run of hip, colorful clothing that will hit New York stores the first .  The images are below are part of the Waste Collection:

What do you think?

I can’t say I’m digging those last two jackets, but I really do like the dress and the bag.

What about you? Would you wear H&M’s new Waste Collection, or do you think the fashion is sorely lacking from these green pieces?
