Costume National, who recently relocated from the small 108 Wooster Street to a larger flagship, has found a tenant for their old spot quite quickly. Over Fashion Week, Adidas' new eco-venture Adidas SLVR opened in the space, throwing the requisite bash and showing off their green fashions.
How exactly have they gone green, you ask? According to Treehugger, the line is made of "eco-friendly materials, such as organic cotton, soybean fiber, and bamboo" and consists of "basic yet chic styles." our thoughts are that if Treehugger is positive about something, then it might just be worth checking out. Now to not get these looks confused with pieces from Adidas' other Y-3 and Stella McCartney lines; the "zero-waste tee" pictured above, however, is unmistakably SLVR.
