Here is Brittany’s guide to the Evia shopping experience
Of course, when shopping, most of us go directly to fashion stores. Today, it is impossible that you do not have a Uniqlo piece in your wardrobe. Established in 2012 in the country, Uniqlo has been continuously bringing stylish clothing to Filipinos. Their newest LifeWear Fall/Winter Collection 2021 highlighted simple and practical clothes with versatile styles. For Uniqlo, clothing reflects the ideas and values of times- and the people who wear it. The collection includes clothing that will keep you warm, such as the Merino Blend Long Cardigan, Lambswool Long Sleeves Sweater, and Light Souffle Yarn High Neck Sweater. Uniqlo is an established brand known around the globe. The clothing apparel company has locations in 19 countries, including the USA, United Kingdom, France, Italy, China, Germany, Korea, and Russia. Some ambassadors of the brand include world-class pro-golfer Adam Scott, youngest national wheelchair tennis champion Gordon Reid, and professional tennis player Roger Federer.
Another clothing apparel company dominating the Philippines is H&M. The famous brand traces back to its humble beginnings in Sweden, where it was called Hennes, which solely sells women’s clothing. In 1968, when Erling Persson bought the hunting and fishing store Mauritz Widforss, it became H&M-Hennes & Mauritz. Today, it is the second-largest retailer in the clothing business in the world. The multinational retail-clothing company can be found in 74 countries across six continents. H&M has branches in Denmark, Tunisia, Malaysia, Ireland, and Mexico. H&M is a family of brands that makes our lives easier by offering fashion, design, and services that entitle people to be inspired and express their style. As one of the leading fashion brands, it is significant for H&M to take part in the green movement. Last March 2021, the fast-fashion retailer took a massive step towards the green path by scaling innovative materials in their Conscious collection. With agraloop and bio fiber, not less than 50% of each piece is manufactured from sustainable materials, such as organic cotton or recycled polyester. Gracing from the Conscious collections are the Lyocell-blend flounced dress and Pleated maxi dress. Swimwear, like the Tie-tanga bikini bottoms and High leg Swimsuit, is included as well.
One more brand walking towards sustainability is shoe manufacturing company Vans. In June 2021, the company launched its first-ever vegan and sustainable collection. The Eco Theory accents sustainable versions of four classic Vans designs — the Authentic, Slip-Ons, SK8-Hi 38 high tops, and Style 36 Decon. Sourcing materials from suppliers that follow ethical and sustainable practices, each shoe is manufactured responsibly. The shoes featured in Eco Theory use environmentally sensitive materials such as organic cotton, jute, natural rubber, and corks. Dane Gudauskas, the face of the collection and professional surfer, said that “Sustainability has to be at the forefront of Vans for the future.” Originally called The Van Doren Rubber Company, the shoe manufacturing company started way back in 1966. In the 1970s, Vans took Southern California by storm; wherein almost all the skateboarders were seen rocking the brand. Today, the American manufacturer of skateboarding shoes and related apparel has distributors in approximately 70 countries around the world.
