The collection is four times as sustainable as last year’s

Hearst’s Chloé debut was always going to be a statement of intent from the socially responsible, environmentally conscious designer, but she kicked off her tenure with a real bang. By accelerating a sustainability plan initially proposed for 2025 to 2022, she inadvertently posed the question of why other brands are not doing more to pave the way for a greener future. The autumn/winter 2021 collection, for which Hearst eliminated polyester and viscose in favour of recycled, reused and organic materials, is four times more sustainable than last winter’s line and encompasses two social partnerships with Manos del Uruguay and Sheltersuit. “This is part of the Chloé mission: weaving purpose into business endeavours in a post-pandemic world to help acknowledge and alleviate the hardship of others,” asserted Hearst. “A luxury brand has the duty to do so.”
