H&M Finds Inspiration At The Louvre For Sustainable Fashion Collection

November 26, 2015

hm-louvre-musee-sustainable-860H&M is partnering with the Louvre on its next Conscious collection of sustainable fashion, collaborating with the prestigious museum’s curators at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs on a new line that will be revealed in April to coincide with the opening of the “Fashion Forward” exhibition.

H&M is proud to announce a collaboration with the Musee des Arts Decoratifs, located in the Palais du Louvre in Paris to celebrate the new H&M Conscious Exclusive collection. This beautiful new range has been inspired by the archives of the museum, and will be launched on Thursday April 7th to coincide with the opening of the highly anticipated exhibition, Fashion Forward – Three Centuries of Fashion.

H&M is delighted to reveal Parisian Art Director, style maven and sustainability champion, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, will be the face of the campaign. “I am honored to be the ambassador of such a unique project. I think that the idea of creating a collection inspired by the history of art and fashion is fantastic, especially since it is made with innovative and sustainable materials which are the future of fashion,” says Julia. Known for her distinctively personal sense of style, Julia is the embodiment of effortless, conscious, modern cool.

For this Conscious Exclusive collection the H&M design team has worked closely with the museum, delving into their collections of archival fashions as well as the work of artists such as Gustave Moreau to find inspiration. The outcome is a glamorous line of modern red carpet pieces infused with tactile charm, a nostalgic aesthetic and a historical legacy.

“With this collection we brought the idea of sustainability to new levels. Working with new innovative materials such as beads and rhinestones made from recycled glass and Denimite, a material made from recycled worn-out denim, we have created contemporary styles imbued with a sophisticated charm,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, Creative Advisor at H&M.
