What happens to all the extra fabrics when designers are done making collections? In the case of the Lanvin for H&M collection, the fabric remnants are being recycled—into a whole new collection! Nitrolicious reports that the Swedish retailer has created a collection called "Waste" which is available in select stores and is made entirely of Lanvin for H&M remnants. "Several different fabrics have been used in the same garment to create new graphic and harlequin patterns," writes Nitrolicious. Check out the rest of the collection here. [Nitrolicious]
