Only some years ago it was pretty much impossible to get nice sustainable high fashion – especially for men. Slowly but steadily some high fashion gems arise. In this post I show you some of my sustainable favourites.

Phipps:

Spencer Phipps grew up (much like me) in a hippie-esque eco-friendly environment. Amongst other brands he also designed for Dries van Noten – a master of timeless design. In 2017 he started his namesake brand with a strong focus on sustainability. Phipps’ high-end work and sportswear staples are here to complete your dad & uncle core style.

Gmbh:

One of my fave brands since their launch in 2016. The cozy Berlin club-wear designs are mostly made of organic, up-cycled or recycled fabrics.  I also had the chance to visit one of there shows in Paris.

Dick Moby:

During a surfing trip in 2012 Tim & Robbert learned about ocean pollution. This was the start of their eyewear brand using only eco-friendly bio-based or recycled acetate and high quality Zeiss lenses.

vonmorgen:

These made-to-order leather shoes were handmade in Vienna for me a couple of years ago. Since then they became my favourite everyday shoes – with every wear they become more sustainable. I also made a short video for “vonmorgen” back then.

I bought this piece with the money I received from my grandparents to make my driving license. I definitely had other priorities back then :) (Luckily some years later I earned enough myself to still complete my driver’s license) ;-)
