MINT: EGBERT-JAN WEEBER EN NIEUWE FORWARD FASHION
Having recently announced Dutch actor Egbert-Jan Weeber as ambassador for MINT (he will be DJ-ing at MINT on Sunday at 1 PM!), now a new line-up of forward fashion brands is ready to present style and conscience at the AW13/14 edition of MINT! MINT will showcase 25 brands that combine fashion, great style and respect for people and environment. From clothing brands such as armedangels, L’Herbe Rouge, Komodo, Päälä and Barbara Munsel to accessories from Dutch Basics, O My Bag and Jannissima – style is guaranteed.
NEW(S) at MINT
Newcomer to MINT, CHRISTINA KRÄMER collections, shows pure designs made from natural and organic materials. The label offers exclusive high fashion for both men and women. New friend to MINT, Granny’s Finest will surely leave an impression on MINT visitors as they bring their very own granny’s (Monday at 2 PM) who will be knitting the Granny’s Finest scarves, hats, gloves and other accessories! For perfect basics, turn to Qolors. The Dutch brand offers tops and shirts made from organic stretch-cotton in all colours imaginable. The bracelets of WFTH are made of waste leather, and lasered with beautiful messages. The organic wool felt bags of Manon Garritsen are stylish and practical (and made in Rotterdam). And, this edition a new bag label will be launched at MINT: PUC. The Personalized Unique Collection will be made right here in the Netherlands from re-used leather only and every item will have a traceable unique code.
TRUE to MINT
Established MINT brand People Tree will be displaying their AW13/14 collection. People Tree creates working opportunities in developing countries and has been a pioneering brand in forward fashion since 2001. Back at MINT this year and known for their knitwear, label MLY from Eindhoven will have inspiring prints and even jeans on display. Graphic design shirts, sweaters and hoodies for men will be showcased by Dutch brand Okimono. For minimalistic and eco friendly designs with a twist, stop by Studio Jux. The Studio Jux AW collection 12/13 won the Green Fashion Competition. We wonder what they have in store for us at the MINT 13/14 edition!
