Spanish shoe label Maison Mangostan base their SS20 collection on one message: ‘the urgent need to be more and more conscious about the environment’.
With this message in mind they have paired up with Spanish organisation Ambiente Europe to create GREEN MANGOSTAN, a collection focused on the use of recycled materials. This collection keeps the colourful soul of the brand whilst introducing new materials such as fabrics containing a mix of recycled cotton fibres made from PET bottles retrieved from the ocean, or shoe soles made from recycled TPU mixed with cork.
The collection’s style references derive from reggae music and the coastal areas of Jamaica. Think Bob Marley’s sports outfits when kicking a ball about – cool Jamaican style with a touch of fluro.
This collection has an aim to increase environmental awareness in order to create a more sustainable world – or to quote Bob: “It takes a revolution to make a solution”.
