Browns has long been a go-to destination for customers and competition alike to see what the latest in fashion retail looks like; something like a blueprint. Whether the London-based retailer is platforming upcoming designers or experimenting with sales tactics, Browns has been at the cutting edge of its world since it opened in 1970. In 2022, a central part of continuing this legacy is being up-to-date on sustainability and the Browns Conscious Edit does just that.
Since January 2019, Browns has been working with Good On You, the world’s leader when it comes to sustainability ratings of fashion labels. To reach its final rating, Good On You assesses a brand’s policies and practices in three main areas: people, planet, and animals. All of the ratings are based on industry standards, certifications, and a label’s in-house reporting.
So, any item that you find in the Browns Conscious Edit meets one of the following criteria: it may be made with more than 50 percent conscious or certified materials; the finished product holds an independent certification relating to good environmental, social, or animal welfare practice like Fairtrade; the product could be vintage or pre-owned; or the product comes from a brand that has earned a positive Good On You rating.
Although the rating criteria are deliberately high, the Browns Conscious Edit is an ever-growing source of eco-friendly style inspiration. That means that there’s a lot to choose from and keep up with. To streamline the process, we’ve rounded up 10 items that have caught our eye.
