Last spring saw the opening of 18 shop-in-shops at Danish Les Deux’s key retailers — to be followed by even more — and earlier this fall, they opened their first flagship in the heart of Copenhagen.

Their next step is sustainable, where they’ve investigated the many possibilities of buying leftover fabrics from their suppliers and using this as foundation for the collections. The capsule includes two oxford shirts, two overshirts in respectively wool and cotton, a flannel suit pant and lastly, a wider herringbone suitpant.

The brand tells how they will increase the goals of sustainable styles in their range plan, using upcycled, recycled, organic cotton or Tencel. From the Spring 20 collection to Autumn 20 collection they’ve increased the number of sustainable styles with an ambition of making it take up even more space of the collection. Special ”green labeled” hangtags will, from now on, indicate that the item is crafted from sustainable fabrics.
