CHRISTOPHER OWENS: A NEW TESTAMENT

Saint Laurent campaign boy and former Girls frontman Christopher Owens is rocking his very own brand of folk rock. The golden haired singer-songwriter gives it his all in a beautifully love stricken and honest new album, ‘A New Testament’, dropping on Sept. 30. Owens just started a tour of this new album and we got a chance to see him rock out live at his first date right here in LA. His soulful tracks embody Gospel, Country and R&B and his album is about perseverance through tough times. Christopher is also a carries a lot of style and besides scoring Saint Laurent, he also stars in the latest H&M campaign.

Take a look at his single “Nothing More Than Everything To Me” and experience the glory for yourself. Photo by the one and only, Hedi Slimane.

THUMBS UP: H&M CONTINUES SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVE

H&M gets a tip of our hat this week for furthering their sustainability campaign by launching the brand’s first line made from recycled textile fiber as part of their Garment Collecting Initiative, launched in Feb. ‘13. Set to be released by the end of February ’14 (thank goodness because we sure do hate waiting) the capsule collection will consist of five classic denim pieces made from 20% recycled cotton. The aptly named Conscious Collection will continue H&M’s trajectory toward sustainable, and, yes, still affordable clothes.

Oh, BTW, H&M has been on that eco-friendly tip. Already halting production of angora products and no longer use of PFC, a chemical commonly used for water repellency — PFCs are harmful to the environment and aquatic life, and, let’s face it, we can’t really F with that anymore. Their goal is to make sustainable fashion affordable and available to as many people as possible. Good fa’ you H&M, good fa’ you.
