Velvet is making a major comeback this season. Spotted in almost every runway show – think Dries van Noten, Balmain or Valentino – the soft touch textile is a key-trend for fall. From slip dresses reminiscing the 90’s to tailored pantsuits or the perfect pair of ankle boots, we can’t get enough of velvet.

Stella McCartney has a word or two to say about sustainability and the british designer is proud to run a cruelty-free business. We love the idea of pairing these velvet ankle boots with some denim to achieve that laid-back look. (€645, STELLA MCCARTNEY)

The return of a 90’s favorite. Jan N’ Jun’s slip dress is made of 100% GOTS certified organic cotton grown in India and Turkey and sween in Poland. It may not be velvet, but it looks just as good and it’s sustainable. (€75 JAN N’ JUN)
