Streetwear has been on the rise season after season and is now a whole category in its own right. Referencing and encompassing hip-hop, Californian skatewear and Japanese street style streetwear is an urban giant.
When we think of streetwear, we don’t think vegan. Well, we are being proved wrong, and we love it. Keep reading to see 9 Vegan streetwear brands you need to know about.
Miakoda is an eco-friendly, sustainable, and ethically made ‘comfy clothing company’. Using exclusively plant-based materials, with the addition of small percentages of spandex for comfort and movement. You’ll never find animal fibres or synthetic materials in a Miakoda garment. We love the seriously comfy and covetable separates that would work so well layered under other pieces.
Save the Duck is an ethical and smart company, aiming to live in a completely animal cruelty-free world. All their garments are 100% animal free and do not allow the use of feathers, leather, leather or fur. We love their bright coloured puffer jackets that are super warm, tapping right into the oversized outerwear trends we have seen this season.
Like all other vegan brands, HoodLamb is completely animal product free. However, it is innovation where it succeeds. We love the Nordic Parka, it features a natural hemp and organic cotton in the outer shell. The inner shell is insulated with Thermore® EcoDown®, a duck-less down that resists extreme cold and is lined natural hemp and recycled PET faux-fur. All these materials are good for the planet, good for us and help to create a better world.
Heartcure put compassion at the forefront of all their designs. Creating garments to promote a world where we all live as equals. Their fun garments have a stylish street vibe, all emblazoned with a positive message.
Rombaut is a French streetwear label, that gives us serious Balenciaga vibes. This avant-guard label create fashion-forward footwear that would not look out of place on the runways of any major city. They are also extra covetable as they are completely vegan, using animal-free materials at every step.
Wawwa is a unique cruelty-free company that also gives more back to the world. We love this football-inspired scarf, which gets serious style points from us. With every Scarf Ordered, Wawwa will donate another to someone less fortunate as part of their 1+1 Collection. So not only does this take nothing from the animal kingdom, but it aims to improve the lives of other humans too.
7. Plant Faced
We have talked before about Plant Faced, but no Vegan streetwear roundup would be complete without the game changers that are Plant faced.
Stella McCartney is a huge luxury designer. The label is also 100% vegan and sustainable, which means all her collaborations with Adidas are too. We love this take on the athletic sweatshirt, which is super chic.
9. Basti Basti
German-based streetwear brand Basti Basti is a darker creature altogether. Giving us music merchandise vibes, we love their designs. The site may all be in German, but we understand everything that this brand is doing when it comes to vegan approaches to fashion. Fusing style with sustainable sensibilities and consideration for animals.
