It is not atypical to see brands dedicating collections to certain kinds of sustainability like global warming awareness or animal rights, advocating for green or no-fur policies while completely omitting other prevalent factors such as factory working conditions and problematic or exploitative distribution systems. Not the most sexy topics perhaps, which is why we are seeing a sort of pseudo-engagement with sustainable practice across the continents - in spite of the fact that it has never been more urgent to consider sustainability than now.
