For this collection, BruceGlen brings their fresh take on what the future holds to this year’s LAFW. With a turbulent past, a dreamy, romantic future is imminent, all about exploration, wonderment and discovery. This season feels hopeful and full of expectation.
Per the designer brothers, visual representation also comes hope being represented through the image of the rainbow, as rainbows appear in the clouds. When the brightness of the sun is covered, beauty can still appear in the midst, stirring anticipation for brighter days.
All fabrics used are organic and include an airy silk charmeuse, bamboo cotton, biodegradable Cupro twill, and stretch denim. 70% of the collection is sustainably produced in the Dominican Republic. Their printing process has no water wastage as it is always the same recycled water uses.
They use 90% less ink than normal printing practices and 50% less electricity. Production sewers are paid a fair wage and the carbon footprint is extremely low as everything is done under one roof. Pieces are also only produced on a made-to-order basis unless there is a wholesale order request.
“Spring ‘24, we have become aware of the unique beauty in everything, everyone, every moment, every up and every down. No longer bogged down by the weight of the past or anxious about what the future does or does not hold, we are fully embracing the here and now…taking care to smile as we wait for dreams to blossom in the garden of life.”
