With abstract cuts and modern uses of color, Salty Philip is a label on the cusp of exploding onto the eco-fashion scene. Designer Lynn MacPherson founded the Dublin-based brand just over a year ago as a response to the devastating impact the conventional fashion industry has on the environment. Made entirely of organic, sustainable, and recycled fabrics, Salty Philip pooh-poohs the idea the green is synonymous with boring, offering retina-searing colors, bold textures, and cutting-edge appeal.
The Autumn/Winter 2010 line packs plenty of charm. Each design is assured to be a wardrobe staple designed to keep you swaddled in warmth all season long. (We have our eye on the Chanel-esque houndstooth cardi.)

Although the small yet focused collection boasts unique materials like sustainable tweeds, recycled PET (from Coke bottles), and recycled chiffon, design remains paramount to the Salty Philip ethos. “I never want people to look at my collection and know straight off that it’s an ‘eco’ line,” MacPherson tells Ecouterre. “That’s just an added bonus when buying my clothes! It’s more about bringing sustainablitly to the masses and making the customer aware of the vast amount of eco-products available.”
