* Besides producing super-adorable products, peSeta (Madrid) setup a Foundation to collect unwanted clothing and fabrics to be recycled.
* Urban Outfitters setup a contest for 20 artists and designers to take part in their Urban Renewal line (submissions deadline was June 15). These exclusive limited editions are handcrafted from vintage, deadstock and surplus materials — all sourced from rag mills around the world. The results are completely unique: Kennedy-era bed sheets are redesigned into one-of-a-kind dresses while early-80s menswear shirts start over as skirts. Pieces are created one at a time entirely by hand in Philadelphia. Reconstructed with care, no two of these one-off re-designs will ever be exactly alike.
* I love their use of illustration alongside store products.
