my spring outfit today is all about the motto of sustainability. Sustainable jeans meet fairly produced sneakers, the trench coat was bought second-hand and the shirt also comes from a fair fashion brand. It’s now really easy to combine a sustainable outfit without having to compromise. You don’t have to dig too deep into your wallet, nor do you have to wear items that aren’t modern enough.
I became aware of ARMEDANGELS many years ago and followed the development of this sustainable fashion brand with excitement. But not only that, I am also increasingly concerned with the topic of sustainability, questioning the way products are manufactured and what effects this can and will have on our environment. This post here on my fashion blog was created in cooperation with ARMEDANGELS and I am happy to present my basic-casual spring look to you.

DetoxDenim: sustainable jeans by ARMEDANGELS
A few months ago I wrote a detailed blog post about why I like to wear, buy and recommend ARMEDANGELS clothes. If you don’t know the fair fashion brand yet, please read this article in advance. I write about what ARMEDANGELS produces, why organic is a must, what ARMEDANGELS stands for and how fair and sustainable the fashion brand really is. Also the detox denim collection I address, which I would like to devote a separate blog post to today.
DetoxDenim: Jeans without exploitation and poison
The conventional Manufacture of jeans Considered one of the dirtiest practices in the fashion industry. It consumes an enormous amount of water, poisons soils, pollutes rivers, pumps huge amounts of CO₂ into our atmosphere – and at the expense of the world’s poorest people. With detox denim ARMEDANGELS relies on innovation and gentle techniques – they avoid toxins and unnecessary chemicals. In plain language this means: no toxic fertilizers, no synthetic pesticides and no toxic chlorine.
If you just think about it for a moment: You do without everything that you really don’t want to wear on your skin! Then Harmful substances in jeans endanger not only the health of the people who make them, but also that of us, the buyers. And ARMEDANGELS shows us: renunciation is not the same as renunciation. Because even jeans made under great conditions can look really good.
We can see at first glance whether a pair of jeans looks good. But we rarely find out whether it is particularly harmful to the environment or under what conditions it was produced. But it’s worth taking a closer look – I’ve got a lot for you below nice, well-fitting organic jeans linked that consistent and transparently produced became. Easy look good without compromise and feel good! The Mairaa or Lejaa models prove it to us.
3 reasons why sustainable jeans are better
- 100% certified organic cotton from certified cotton suppliers means 0% dangerous fertilizers and 0% synthetic pesticides. That leads to less toxic chemicals in the fields, reduces the amount of genetically modified seeds and reduces the enormous water consumption.
- GOTS-certified partnerswho use little water and only work with harmless chemicals, do without toxic heavy metals, which pollute the groundwater through the dyeing and washing process.
- With modern techniques like Laser or ozone treatment avoid chlorides. That means no pungent odors that can potentially trigger allergic skin reactions due to residual chlorine in fabrics after bleaching treatments.
Raw Jeans: DetoxDenim RÅ
At the current DetoxDenim RÅ campaign is about innovation. That means back to the original denim look by doing without extensive washing processes. Because originally they were all denims raw. Complex, resource-intensive washing and finishing steps were only gradually introduced and, as we now know, a particularly large number of chemicals are used in conventional denim production. In addition, large amounts of water are consumed and polluted.
At ARMEDANGELS, attention is generally paid to a gentle process for all jeans, for example bleaching without chlorine. With DetoxDenim RÅ, they are now bringing back the authentic denim look that has perhaps been forgotten a bit. In this way we continue to reduce our CO2 footprint and can create our own individual jeans. How it works? We should wear jeans wear in as long as possible before the first wash – We recommend around 6 months to leave as many creases and signs of wear as possible.
By the way: jeans should be washed as little as possible or not at all! Because both the color and the material suffer with every wash. Most jeans, whether conventional or sustainably sourced, have already been processed to look like they were broken in by us.
If you decide, for example, for these mom jeans from the Detox denim RÅ collectionyou will make it over time your personal favorite denim. if you one Jeans made from raw denim wear, the color fades in a completely natural way, individual color gradients, creases, kinks and imprints appear.
Do you already have sustainable jeans in your closet or are you still looking for the perfect model?
