    The Earth seen from space meets modular design: with SEMINA we wear agricultural geometries and a more responsible fashion

    From the collaboration between two brands, Biclot and earthncycle, the unique SEMINA collection is born, combining modular garments with clean and elegant shapes to the vision of our Earth through the eyes of space satellites. SEMINA’s design and graphics tell of the natural-artificial interaction, between fashion and agriculture. Two worlds united in a special collection to convey awareness and responsibility in production and consumption choices. It is the result of the meeting between Chiara and Mariangela. Chiara defines herself as a chaotic and creative mind, passionate about design in all its forms: “I find it in architecture for work, in fashion for passion, in nature for its undeniable beauty”. Mariangela…

    Stile Biologico and Shari Fontani: in the beauty of a dress, slow fashion and cinema meet, launching a message

    A dress. It is not just cloth or fiber. A dress says something about the person wearing it. Not all. But much. A created dress reveals something about the person who made it. Not all. But much. A dress can communicate a message of a group of united people who in unison agree on values in which they believe. We join this chorus, sharing the photos and the story of a dress in this article, out of editorial programming. Because when the letter that I will shortly share with you arrived, I immediately wanted to add our voice to that of those who, creating, wearing, photographing, weaving and doing their…

    Peterson+Stoop’s sneakers: when repair becomes high fashion

    Meeting Peterson+Stoop allows us to reflect upon a very important aspect regarding waste in the fashion industry. In Italy the shoe business is predicted to grow over 3.4% between 2020 and 2025. According to a report of the Italian Institute of Research Eurispes, 37% of Italians purchases a new pair of shoes every 3 months, noteworthy numbers that make us understand how important is talking about the production and consumption of shoes in a more sustainable way. Besides the actual shoes ending up in landfills at the end of the life cycle, during the tanning process also the shoe factories produce significant waste: dust, scraps and leather clippings polymeric materials…

    Brands and artisans participate in the initiative to oppose Black Friday: together with them let’s transform it into Green!

    November, for some, is the month of Black Friday. The Friday of big discounts is an initiative born in the United States with which companies announce the beginning of Christmas shopping. This year will be Friday 27 dedicated to discounted shopping. On November 30th, it will be Cyber Monday, specific for consumer electronics purchases. What’s green about all of this? On Black Friday itself, not much. For some it is an opportunity not to miss opportunities: a mountain of offers that sellers on Amazon and companies will propose us. However, we have the possibility to choose a more positive environmental impact, adopting a conscious approach to our purchases: We can…

    A new sustainable leather from eggplant peel: chef Omar Sartawi’s face masks

    Italiano/English below  Puoi ascoltare qui l’articolo: Dalla buccia di melanzane Con l’inizio della pandemia causata dal virus Covid-19, un nuovo prodotto è sotto i riflettori per via dell’impatto ambientale e la creazione di rifiuti: la mascherina per il viso. Per combattere l’utilizzo monouso delle mascherine chirurgiche, difficili da riciclare e inquinanti per l’ambiente, e il conseguente aumento di rifiuti, sono spuntate nuove e diverse idee per creare mascherine riutilizzabili e più ecosostenibili. Mentre cotone biologico e canapa sono le alternative più utilizzate, non avremmo mai pensato che una soluzione potesse arrivare dagli avanzi delle nostre cucine! Infatti lo chef giordano Omar Sartawi ha aggiunto un nuovo materiale nel mix dei prodotti…
