Marking John Lewis’s most sustainable collection to date, the high street retailer has teamed up with industry insider favourite Mother of Pearl for an exclusive 33-piece collection.
Who doesn’t love a high street collaboration? The heady mix of designer aesthetic at affordable prices is enough to send even the most grounded of fashion fans into a spin. The latest team project comes from high street titan John Lewis and cult British designer Mother of Pearl, who have created a capsule collection of smart and elegant pieces ready to uplift and elevate every wardrobe.
At the core of this collection is purposeful fashion: pieces designed to stand the test of time in your wardrobe, while also bringing something refreshingly new for your sartorial satisfaction.
Mother of Pearl, a highlight on the London Fashion Week schedule, has been pioneering the way for sustainability without losing its trademark aesthetic of strong feminine silhouettes, bold prints and delicate details.
Enacting yet more positive change, this collection maintains all of those brand values but at high street prices. A classic taupe-coloured trouser suit with pearl buttons, seasonless shirting with gold-detailed cuffs and a polka-dot printed dress contribute to the collection’s longevity.
“Making beautiful pieces for the high street with the most sustainable fabrics and production is not an easy task,” says Amy Powney, creative director of Mother of Pearl. “But working with the John Lewis & Partners team has made this a reality.”
Whether you are banking pieces to wear when you head back to the office or simply dressing up for your weekend in the sunshine here’s our edit of the must-have pieces.
