the lab collection
spring / summer 21
Brighter, warmer days are here, and we’re ready to enjoy as the new season makes its entrance. We’re also happy to present our latest Lab Collection, SS21, which focuses on innovative technologies and more sustainable key pieces – GOTS-certified and naturally mineral-dyed T-shirts, singlets, sweatshirts, and shorts. We’ve also added cool denim styles, made partially from hemp. Timeless gender-neutral looks that are easy to style your own way, just as you like for spring and summer.
For many of the items in the collection, which ranges in colour from lush berry shades to forest-green hues, we’ve used a new and exciting colouration method. The dyes used for these garments are actually sourced from natural minerals originating in Europe. The mineral materials have been finely milled into pigment particles that are used to create this fantastic colour palette. The result? Fashion in natural colours that you’ll love, and that’s also more sustainably produced. How amazing is that?!

We continue to challenge ourselves to find additional, more sustainable fibre alternatives to traditional cotton. For this release, we’ve produced jeans and denim shorts in which we’ve combined hemp fibre with more sustainable cotton. Hemp, which grows in cold, rainy climates, has less environmental impact because no pesticides are used in its cultivation. In other words, a genuinely fantastic alternative!

Many items in the collection are made from GOTS-certified organic cotton. This means that the cotton production has fulfilled the stringent GOTS requirements for environmentally and socially responsible production, and that the cotton has been grown with less environmental impact, without the use of pesticides or fertilisers.
