Currently Cheap Monday‘s use of eco-friendly materials have been increasing every year since SS17. As it stands now, 100% of their denim offering is sustainable, as well as 88% for menswear and 59% for womenswear. By the time AW18 comes along, the entire menswear and womenswear collections will be labelled sustainable. This is sure to grow even more over the coming years as their ambition to “be the most relevant and sustainable jeanswear brand on the street” is right within sight.
I think it’s great that Cheap Monday are fighting against the norm to make their brand more sustainable and its a plus that its affordable to everyone. Now for me, I feel you don’t have to have extremely expensive clothes on to look good. It’s all in the details and the styling! So I thought the best backdrop to showcase their current SS17 collection would be on the gritty and monochromatic streets of London. So here’s three simple looks that I think would be perfect for the summer ahead.
Shooting on cleaner backgrounds really help to highlight the details and contrasting dark pieces in this collection. My favourite look will have to be the oversized white shirt that goes great with washed black wide-legged jeans. It gives off a more interesting silhouette and not to mention – super comfortable. Pair that with a printed tee and some sandals and you’re virtually ready for a summer festival! If all else fails… do it the John Jarrett way… double denim all the way!
