Sweater enthusiasts for climate action, unite! Wah-Wah designer Kaylene Milner has collaborated with artist and musician Reg Mombassa, who as been depicting the effects of climate change on the Australian landscapes for years on a vividly great, sustainable sweater. Climate change merch, if you will. Milner is continuing her mission to advocate for ethical and sustainable design through this collab: “To be honest, as a fashion designer, the best thing I could do for the environment is not produce clothing. But while us humans are going to cover our bodies in fabric, I’m going to take the Vivienne Westwood approach of, “Buy less. Choose well. Make it last. Quality not quantity”.’ Amen. And so, the Wah-Wah x Reg Mombassa sweater is fully biodegradable, made from 100% superfine merino wool and will ship in an environmentally friendly, biodegradable mailer, with the Milner only producing as many units as what is sold. One hundred percent of profits from each sale will go to Firesticks Alliance Indigenous Corporation and the Climate Council. As the saying goes here at Ten: do good, look good.
