SustainStyle: LA Fashion Week Recap, Sail Bags, Love Tunic + More

Welcome to SustainStyle, a weekly digest from the writers at 1plus1, a blog dedicated to eco-friendly fashion. SustainStyle runs every Wednesday.


Wowza! This week has been crazy! Los Angeles fashion week brought us a handful of inspiring eco-fashion shows that we are still trying to get a grasp on.

The Green Initiative by the Gallery LA showcased six talents on a bamboo-lined runway. Earth Pledge's Future Fashion show, held at Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's house, showed eco-fashions to the industry's most prominent leaders. And the Battalion, who gave us a preview of our fall 2008 wardrobe with ultra modern -- but wearable -- leggings with denim details, drapey dresses and blouses that shouted perfection.

Outside of the tents, we mentioned our love for Sail bags: They're made from recycled sails with rope as handles! Some serious cuteness for a spring/summer bag.

In addition to our preparation for the warmer weather, we fell in love with The Pursuit of Harmony’s organic "love" tunic: A printed organic cotton tunic with a print that we went wild for. And hot pink Terra Plana Sandals made us swoon with their recycled leather.

This week's "Dress Me" is dedicated to our boyfriends, to get them looking as good as we do. Clothing from Loomstate, Vans and Edun should do the job!
