Driving Shoes

What does driving and walking have in common?  Obviously they both help you get around.  Take that a "step" further and they also have footwear in common.  Introducing the Car Shoe.  No, it is not new, but maybe it is new to you.

Car Shoe was founded in 1963 by Gianni Mostile, whose passion for racing cars led him to design handmade moccasins made from very soft leather and soles set on tiny rubber studs to enhance adherence to car pedals and were particularly suitable for driving sports cars. The Car Shoe driving shoe design was awarded a registered patent from the Italian Ministry of Trade and Industry in 1964 which has since expired. The brand has since become an Italian classic for driving shoes, known for its technical-design originality with high-quality leather and handmade craftsmanship.
The Original Car Shoe
Car Shoe is a division of Prada Group.

If this show was new in 2017, we would have considered it as one of the best shoes of 2017.  It wasn't designed this year, but the good news is you can still buy them this year.

Think Goldie When Hitting The Road

Are you hitting the road and heading off to the next music festival?  Some people call them music festivals, but we prefer to call them the "fashion festivals".  Although music is a huge part, the way people dress really kicks off the vibe.  Coachella and other events are a trendy display for sure.
Goldie Fashion for Festivals
Clothing for festivals is a category of interest this summer.  Where do you shop for your trendy and comfortable clothing?  If you haven't already done so, we suggest you visit the Goldie site to browse for festival fashion.

Goldie embodies true London style.  A combination of flirty vintage inspired dresses, sheer tops, and chunky knitwear are teamed effortlessly with timeless silhouettes, which keeps each collection fresh, unique and super-wearable.  That makes it perfect for the various international festivals taking place this summer.

Plug and Play, Fashion for Good, and Kering Part 2

This is a continuation of our article Plug and Play, Fashion for Good, and Kering Sustainable Textile Start-ups.

MycoTex
MycoTex
A mushroom-based textile shaped on custom-fitted moulds, MycoTex is a new one-step way of producing clothing that eliminates the need for spinning yarns, weaving and other processes. In addition to being chemical-free and requiring little water to develop, MycoTex is 100% biodegradable meaning clothing can be composted after use.

Pili-bio
Via the use of microorganisms, Pili could enable the textile sector to phase-out petrochemical, non-renewable dyes and replace them with natural organic ones, notably reducing the level of toxic chemicals used in textile production.

RePack
Both a new type of packaging and a new business model, RePack has the potential to reduce the carbon footprint of e-commerce packaging by 80%. Once a product is received, the client sends the packaging back to the store for re-utilisation and thus closes the loop.

Sundar
Sundar is building the digital supply chain for the modern, faster, sustainable fashion industry. The platform connects manufactures and suppliers of textiles, trims, accessories and garments with brands and retailers, and enables in minutes what used to take weeks and months to accomplish.

Plug and Play, Fashion for Good, and Kering Sustainable Textile Start-ups

From the over 250 applicants and a shortlist of twenty, a final selection of twelve start-ups have been awarded a place in the ‘Plug and Play - Fashion for Good’ accelerator, a collaboration between Plug and Play, Fashion for Good and Kering which aims to fast-track sustainable innovation within the luxury and apparel industries.

The twelve start-ups selected, who come from varied fields and academic backgrounds around the world, are Agraloop, Amadou, Dragon, Dropel, ICA Bremen, MySource, MycoTex, Pili-bio, RePack, Sundar, Tersus and Tipa. Selected for their comprehensive approaches to the textile supply-chain, the start-ups’ innovations range from developing new raw materials which will reduce fashion’s environmental impacts, to alternative production methods which will increase clothes’ longevity, and the development of new processes which enable closed-loop product lifecycles.

Under the accelerator, the start-ups will follow a unique 3-month programme during which Plug and Play, Fashion for Good and Kering will support them in scaling-up their innovations by providing mentoring, training, networking opportunities, and other valuable resources.

The accelerator’s second edition will take place later in 2017, with applications already open to start-ups.

Start-ups

Agraloop
Collecting waste from fibrous food-crop production including hemp, flax, banana and pineapple, Agraloop transforms these into fibers for use in textiles. Processed using conventional cotton machinery, this new material offers a biodegradable and more environmentally-friendly alternative to conventional fibres.

Amadou
Made from the skin of amadou mushrooms, Amadou is a renewable, biodegradable, vegetarian and lower-environmental-impact alternative to leather. A pilot collection of footwear and accessories have already successfully undergone viability, aesthetic and durability tests to ensure Amadou is suitable for use within the textile sector.

Dragon

Founded by a team of electric and mechanical engineers, Dragon is a novel water purification technology which operates off light energy. The technology includes a high-efficiency water filtration system, which when applied to textile production processes could increase water quality whilst reducing the level of chemicals and energy required.
