PARIS — A crop of emerging brands are paving the way for innerwear's green future. Here are a few of the movement's pioneers who will be showing in the Salon International de la Lingerie's "Spicy Garden."
Eco-Boudoir Founder: Jenny White Age: 31 Based: London Founded: 2007 Sold at: 14 sales points, including Harrods in London and Catriona MacKechnie in New York. Retail prices: From $70 for an eye mask to $600 for an organic silk dressing gown. Background: Eco-Boudoir flowered from a sustainable fashion project White developed as part of her master's of arts degree at Central Saint Martins. Philosophy: "People think eco-friendly lingerie is all about bamboo bras, but it's much more than that. It's about researching the production process; using recycled packaging; avoiding harmful dyes; opting for digital printing, which is the greenest way of printing, and using sustainable fabrics. It's also important to check out the working conditions of the production facilities."
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
