John Bartlett’s vegan menswear is so hot right now »
BlackBook’s Nell Alk has a feature on John Bartlett’s spring 2013 line, which he showed at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, you guys are you in love yet? OK, how about this: The clothes are all linen, vegan, sustainable, and totally gorgeous. Love!
We’ve talked about him before, but man, you should read this article, Bartlett is a good dude. Joshua Katcher loves him, Jeff Nesmith loves him, Vaute Couture collectively loves him, and (most importantly), Megan Rascal loves him. Why?
As he told BlackBook, “Everything I’ve learned—about how we use animals for clothing, entertainment, food—I would like not to do.” And what about the rest of his animal-product-using industry? “Being in the fashion industry, [avoiding animal-derived materials is] never a big consideration. I think it’s going to change. It’s changing.”
Here’s hoping. Get over to BlackBook to read the article and see photos of Bartlett’s entire SS13 line, which is pretty delightful. That pink suit! The shorts! The ties! Men’s vegan clothing is catching up to women’s and I couldn’t be happier. You guys in like five years we are all going to look so good.
