Who knew waste could look this cool? Friday night the designer duo behind Trinhbecx presented their brand new collection made from waste materials. And boy did they exceed our expectations with their line up of original, young and vibrant looks.

The show, which is part of the Dutch Sustainable Fashion Week was scheduled as a “Talking Trash” show. And they couldn’t have picked a better designer duo for this event. Trinhbecx spoke of how they’d been looking for sustainable alternatives to existing materials such as leather and cotton. On their mission to deal with waste more consciously they came up with materials like viscose made from coffee grounds, leather made out of plant cells, and fruit waste turned into (XL) buttons.

You couldn’t tell all of this by watching the show. Cool kids were rocking colourful, sporty looks with a twist. Like the green look worn with purple sneakers that opened the show, made out of three different materials (both sheer and heavy leather like). Patchwork formed a big theme for Trinhbecx as the third look made of pastel shaded parts, sheer logo printed shorts and an animal inspired graphic print showed very clearly. An oversized white colored trenchcoat worn with a head wrap was followed by a pinstripe suits cinched at the waist by a big white belt. The graphic print returned on two fully printed coats with big pockets and buttons (utility mode on!). Sporty trainers, statement jewelry (piercings and colourful necklaces) and cool but practical bags (fanny packs and shoulder bags) brought everything together. An all black leather-ish, Matrix inspired outfit (long heavy coat and again a head wrap) concluded the show.

How amazing waste can look. We’d like a piece, or two.
