WHAT YOU WEAR

We never settle for the status quo. We push the boundaries to create thoughtful products that inspire.

That’s why we want to improve our products, from the materials we make them with, right down to how we protect them and how they’re looked after by our customers. And it’s the reason we’re committed to making our products live on, through repair, re-use or recycling programmes. Why our materials will be traceable and our packaging will be better.

And we’re just getting started. Today, we’re constantly looking for new and exciting ways to create innovative products. Products that reflect our belief that there’s always a new frontier and there’s always a way to improve.

OUR ACTIONS

WHAT'S NOW

  • Identifying our share of sustainably-sourced materials and developing a measurable roadmap on how to increase it every year
  • Reviewing and regularly updating our Restricted Substance List and our products’ chemical requirements to make sure they’re always safe
  • Planning our yearly launch for a capsule collection with sustainability at the heart for each of our brands
  • Providing clear and easy care instructions for all of our products so people can enjoy them for longer
  • Offering simple repair services to our customers in Singapore so our products can live on
  • Piloting a shoe recycling or take-back programme for customers and employees so that none of our creations end up in landfill
  • All our plastic packaging will come from re-usable, recyclable or more sustainable sources

​To make sure we’re always pushing ourselves and fashion forward, we are members of groups that are working together to improve the entire industry. As we continue on our sustainability journey, we aim to partner with more organisations to make the change we are creating even bigger.
