Paris based footwear label ROMBAUT is all about being eco-friendly. I was introduced to the brand and its designer Mats Rombaut earlier this year and instantly fell in love with the concept of utilizing biodegradable and all-natural materials for their shoes.
A “crossover between high fashion and ecological awareness”, ROMBAUT takes part in the movement of environmental conscience in fashion. “All materials and fabrics are sustainably engineered, with no toxic or animal-derived substances involved. Instead ROMBAUT develops plant-based materials and is determined to protect bio-diversity in our environment.”
The SS15 collection of ROMBAUT is all about youth - the curiosity to explore, the flexibility to change, and the athleticism of youthful bodies full of energy. The vision is “hopeful, celebratory and radiant”, tying together a sense of optimism.
“Nature and technology are tamed in the materials” for the spring. “The lustrous surfaces tell a child’s story of the future. Through commitment and hard work, ecology and modernity become one.” Sound mind, sound body, sound environment.
