‘Designs with a Purpose’ Launched by Gwen Stefani
Aptly labeled ‘Designs With a Purpose’ or DWP, the line of clothing brings together Gwen Stefani and denim designer Michael Glasser, who is also behind renowned labels like 7 for All Kind, Rich and Skinny and Citizens of Humanity.
The singer and designer have collaborated and worked on a line of stretchy pants. It is an 18-piece collection and consists of pants made of Tencel, which is a material used to treat premium denims. The pants are styled as cropped at the bottom so that you can flaunt your footwear easily. You also have a collection of crop tops, vests and blouses to team up with these pants.
This unique brand boasts of Tencel, which is obtained from dissolved tree pulp and is treated to look like denim or brushed silk. The tops are also made of Tencel. Other items in the collection are a dress and a jumpsuit. The collection will be available in stores this spring onwards.
Tencel is an eco-friendly alternative to conventional denim as it uses much less water for its production. Plus, the production process results in much lower carbon emission than for conventional denim. This denim made from eucalyptus tree wood pulp can help reduce the jeans industry’s carbon footprint.
The price ranges from $80 to $130. The designs are quite simple and meant to be worn as daily wear. Along with that, the pricing has been kept reasonable to promote eco-friendly clothing by making it affordable for the masses.
