This is a whittled down selection of several 'tree hugger' fashion items that were featured on Elle.com on April 28. Gorgeous and luxe, though not necessarily sustainable in terms of materials, if at all. It seems to me that *treehugging* to the core entails a conscious and informed use of environmentally and socially beneficial materials. I so want to see these Alexander McQueen designs crafted out of bamboo, Ingeo, or Tencel.
Marshall McLuhan was no fool, and our global village should be populated by informed consumers who know the difference between tree hugging and season-to-season designer hugging.
