PARIS — One day, organic cotton might seem like an ecological idea from the horse-and-buggy days. Instead, experimental technologies like “bio couture,” in which bacterial cellulose is grown in a green tea solution and dried down to form seamless garments, may come to the fore.

Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
