Discover the key sustainability trends showcased in the S/S 24 collections from Coach, Stella McCartney and Eckhaus Latta at the international fashion weeks. Learn about the innovative practices and materials shaping the future of sustainable fashion.


Brands demonstrated a remarkable commitment to sustainability and reducing environmental impact in their creations for S/S 24. We highlight three brands that stood out for their sustainable practices and materials presented at the global fashion weeks in New York, London, Milan and Paris.


1. Coach

Coach embraced upcycling as part of its sustainable approach. Its collection featured a variety of pieces, including dresses, jackets and sets, all made from reclaimed leather. The brand also used excess inventories and factory waste. Furthermore, a reverse logistics program allowed for the reuse of materials returned by customers, contributing to a more circular system.

The catwalk show took place outdoors in Paris and featured an open-air market, where the brand’s partners showcased their products. Collaborators include secondhand fabric platform Nona Source, synthetic leather alternatives supplier Mabel Industries, leather alternative materials manufacturer Natural Fiber Welding and traceable wool supplier Nativa.


The brand presented 95% ecological or responsible materials, such as organic cotton, linen, recycled cashmere, recycled nylon and polyester, and innovative materials including Mirum, Vegea, Uppeal, Bananatex and Kelsun fiber made from seaweed, used in crochet and macramé.

3. Eckhaus Latta

This brand utilized Unspun’s Vega, a 3D knitting technology that reduces waste and enables precise garment production, avoiding mistakes. The collection featured pants woven in 3D from yarns. The technology is a circular loom that weaves yarns into tubes instead of flat sheets, thus eliminating waste in the cutting process. It also employs an advanced algorithm for quick size customization as each tube is created.
