PICK OF THE DAY: ReLUXE Upcycled Cherie Choker
1st February, 2011
Totally on-trend and made from upcycled plastic bags, ReLUXE’s Cherie choker is top of our wishlist
New from one of the Big Apple’s hippest creators of eco-chic, the Cherie choker by ReLUXE, £45, is perfect for giving your wardrobe a new season update. Combining two of spring’s hottest trends – neon and seventies – the choker is made from recycled high-street plastic bags, finished with brass and gold bindings. Gorgeous with a crisp white shirt, it works equally well with summer's bold fruit prints or an LBD.
Using a mixture of upcycled knits, lace, cottons, velvet leather and sheepskin, ReLUXE is one of the coolest new eco-labels on the block and has impeccable green credentials. While the creative team does react to trends, pieces depend on the materials to hand, so nearly every item is a one-off. The range is heavy on accessories, plenty of socks, scarves and jewellery, but there are also cute floral dresses and Aztec print skirts to be had. Highlights include the Lula Recycled Jersey necklace, £25, and the adorable spriggy floral print Cup dress, £90.
ReLUXE is available online at www.fashion-conscience.com
