It’s no secret that we have a pretty big style crush on Emma Watson, and in addition to fashion week fixture and Burberry model, the Harry Potter actress can add designer to her resume — and we can add another level of sartorial envy to our obsession.
Watson has teamed up with British fair-trade label People Tree for an eco-friendly men’s and women’s knitwear collection, which includes tees, dresses, skirts, and shorts. Coming from the new It-girl of edgy classics (see here and here), this collaboration seems like a more sensible design initiative than, say, an actress and a line of leggings. Just sayin’.
Eighty percent of the capsule collection uses 100 percent organic cotton, and to top it off, all proceeds go to the People Tree Foundation, which directly benefits fair-trade farmers and artisans in developing countries. The first pieces from Watson’s line are hot off the press today at People Tree’s site.
Scanning through the collection of simple pieces, I’m jonesing for the Oxford Cricket jumper (How much more British can you get than those three words?) and the Cambridge blazer. What do you guys thinks of the collection? Would you style yourself with Watson’s designs?
