Australian brand Outland Denim has collaborated with Aussie label Spell, and launched Retro Denim Collection for women. Outland provided the production services at its Cambodian facilities for the five-piece bohemian capsule collection chock-full of ’70s influences and sustainable qualities.
This five-piece capsule includes a 100 percent organic cotton chambray shirt with a Western-style seamed yoke and a high-rise wide-leg flare jean featuring center front and back seams, as well as a playsuit, shorts, and maxi skirt, all outfitted in denim. The brands said each piece is made with organic cotton, zero harmful chemicals, 100 percent vegan materials, and innovative water and energy-saving technologies.
James Bartle, the founder of Outland Denim, told WWD, “We can provide the opportunity, the business model, and a great pair of jeans, but without our customers, there is no change; nothing happens. They are the key to true impact. The opportunity through this collaboration to join forces with the global, like-minded, and huge Spell community is significant. The positive impact on our team and their families won’t just be a flash in the pan but will continue for years and generations to come.”
Bartle said, “We have a lot of respect for what Spell has created in a brand and, as an extension of that, a community where women can connect. Spell has a strong aesthetic and iconic sense of personality, so to see our production house working with the Spell design lens has been a joy to watch. We need to collaborate on solutions if we are going to revolutionize the fashion industry and if we are going to use it to enrich the lives of people and protect the planet.”
Its collaboration with Spell is designed to spread a message of positive change across the fashion industry, as it is made with revolutionizing social standards practiced throughout Outland Denim’s supply chain and only incorporates clean raw materials and methods into its collection.
