Six months ago it was deemed a sin to have been spotted in a matching sweat suit, unless you are Zoë Kravitz. Now, almost everybody on the world is on this trend. Like sweatpants with heels, non-stretched denim and jersey, anything which doesn't fit into Hill House Home's Nap category of dress is simply no longer suitable for my dressing needs. This is when the pandemic has been hitting most of the indoor population for half a year: we bunker and get comfortable.
But comfort level is not the only variable that we are looking at these days when we shop for loungewear. Rather, more distant we get into this pandemic and more we see the environmental degree to which pollution in New York alone fell 50% year-over-year due to a reduction in the number of cars on the road — the more ethically and ethically we focus on shopping and suspense — from air, train or car travel to our fashion consumption habits, and the more we see Gen Z wants a future on this planet in particular, and many are readily ready to give up quickly. Enter: ethical and sustainable loungewear, which is growing.
"Gen Z is most interested and driven by socio-environmental questions for a generation," says Dr. Amanda Parkes, Chief Innovation Officer at PANGAIA, a sustainable mode collective that offers saisonless lounge wear made from bio-engineered materials. "They 're a generation who's deeply concerned. "They are concerned, they believe in the collective 's power and are prepared to adapt their lifestyle to assist both people and the planet."
