The Greenhouse Effect

 

VFILES X FILA

VFILES and FILA have teamed up on a tennis-inspired collection for men and women – fusing the distinctive sport and fashion elements of both brands. The collaboration is the latest from Greenhouse, a new incubator from Foot Locker, with a consumer focus is on cool — not mass sales. Through the Greenhouse app, consumers get exclusive access to limited edition sneakers and apparel created by artists and designers such as Dao Yi Chow of Public School, vintage recycler Nicole Mclaughlin, Parisian-based brand Paperboy, and the latest — VFILES.

VFILES is an experience-based social networking platform that connects and empowers the creative global youth community. Asked how VFILES stays on the leading edge of this capricious culture, Julie Ann Quay, Founder & CEO, replies, “Be welcoming and kind, with your eyes open, and ears ready to listen. At VFILES we believe in three global languages: Fashion, Music and Sport. All three worlds connect in our collaboration with the FILA team, our two brands coming together to push creative boundaries, on and off the court.”

Second Time Around

Globally about 450 million metric tons of plastic are produced every year — most of it single-use — of which 9.5 million tons are thrown into the ocean annually. Both these numbers are on the rise. It has been reported that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the oceans by weight than fish. With sustainability and eco-consciousness a prevalent factor in consumer purchases, many popular sport brands are taking the initiative to reverse those numbers by recycling that plastic waste into new eco-innovative materials and products. A collection of few our favorites are below…

CLOCKWISE TOP LEFT: CONVERSE RENEW CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STARS $85. From the new Converse Renew collection, these classic Chuck Taylor All Stars are made of 100% recycled polyester from used plastic bottles – and customizable too! Touch em’, wear ’em – Converse swears you’ll never know the difference.

MARINE LAYER RE-SPUN TEE $65. Absurdly soft, all the new tees in the Marine Layer Re-Spun collection are made from donated old tees — reborn by reweaving the fibers with recycled plastic bottles into their own recycled yarn. This retro-inspired ringer boasts the message in flocked collegiate-style lettering. Read More
