As you might have noticed already, I try to put a much bigger focus on sustainable and – above all – sweatshop-free clothes this year, so a visit to this season’s Lavera Showfloor obviously was a must during Berlin Fashion Week.
One of my favourite collections was definitely the ‘Spirit’ collection by YVY by Yvonne Reichmuth. In the designer’s own words, YVY consists of designs that are totally independent of trends and seasons and puts a focus on traditional leather craftsmanship meeting innovation. All of Reichmuth’s pieces are made of Italian vegetable tanned leather, handmade in Switzerland, her home country.
Yvonne Reichmuth‘s line of versatile, feminine and avant-garde leather pieces and accessories transform any outfit and any woman’s body, adding and accentuating all the right curves in all the right places. All of this while still putting a focus on fair working conditions, pleasant work places and well thought-through material sourcing. YVY really proves how seductive sustainability can be.
