Sustainable fashion has undergone a real image change in recent years: what was once considered unexciting is now worn on the catwalks in Milan, Paris, & Co. But sustainable clothing is not only better for our nature, it can also help you to find your own personal style. Because nothing is easier than creating cool looks from high-quality classics. Together with fashion blogger Matthias Limmer (@der.mathew), we have styled some of our bestsellers in a modern way to create inspiration for your wardrobe!
The Oxford shirt is one of the most important basic elements of a man's wardrobe today. It originated in Scotland but is now worn all over the world. Thanks to its special fabric, it is breathable, cooling, and versatile. In the spirit of sustainability, we have chosen a minimalist style for the design and cut of our version of the Oxford shirt. Its characteristic basket weave pattern gives it a super soft feel, while high-quality mother-of-pearl buttons add elegant details. Matthias combines it in a chic way in the office with simple chinos and white sneakers. For lunch meetings or short errands, he complements the simple look with a modern trench coat with dark buttons and shimmering gold sunglasses with dark lenses. Matthias says: "In general, fashion classics are particularly universal in styling. [...] SANVT's sustainable essentials are very easy to combine with other brands, as in my case for a look to run errands".
The Oxford Shirt by SANVT is perfectly made for office looks.
Another of Matthias's favorites is our Perfect Sweatshirt in washed black. The sweatshirt used to be preferred for sports activities but has now established itself as a real all-rounder. In your leisure time, it can be worn loosely over a high-quality shirt. Sporty shoes and cool jeans round off the look. Another insider tip from Matthias: with a high-quality sweatshirt, the Oxford shirt can also be combined in a more casual way. Make sure that the collar peeks out of the jumper and turn the classy essential into a leisurewear piece in no time at all.
Styling with a twist: Small details like a peek of the collar have a huge impact.
That's what sustainable fashion is all about! Thanks to a minimalist style, the use of high-quality materials, and a perfect fit, classic pieces like shirts and jumpers can be styled in many different ways. It is therefore worth investing in garments that will, thanks to their quality, last for several years. In contrast to trendy fashion, where clothes are already out of style after a few months and end up in the back corner of your wardrobe. Or have you ever heard someone say that a shirt is no longer en vogue? 😉 Matthias agrees with us: "Why not go for a high-quality version that you can enjoy for many years without putting too much strain on your wallet? Exactly!"
