With every seasonal wardrobe refresh, we’d always be on the lookout for new, exciting pieces that will complement our go-to essentials while keeping us ahead of the style curve. Apart from swiftly swapping out our ruffled midi-dresses for heat-friendly floral mini dresses, we’ve also embraced pastel athleisure outfits for at-home workouts and weekly grocery runs too.
As for taking our summer accessory game to the next level, we’ve got our eyes on PEDRO’s rePEDRO Earth Day 2021 collection, which not only serves up serious sartorial points but also signifies the brand’s continued commitment to becoming more environmentally responsible.
Made with care towards the environment while empowering wearers with stylish yet functional footwear and accessories that will effortlessly fit into any look, the rePEDRO collection follows a “Refined Nautical” theme, which pays homage to the sea and ocean voyagers.
The collection features details that hint at nature sensibilities, such as the use of earthy tones such as blue and beige, along with timeless hues including white and black across its range of sneakers, sandals and shoulder bags that are made for him and her.
Another noteworthy aspect about this special range is how the pieces are primarily made from Organic Cotton that’s been certified by Organic Content Standard — meaning that they are made with less environmental impact and are also helping to sustain the health of soils, ecosystems and people.
Beyond its eco-conscious collection, PEDRO has also re-introduced its Take-Back Programme for the third time. Available till 4 May, the shoes and bags collection initiative encourages customers to discard unwanted shoes and bags responsibly at selected PEDRO stores in Singapore (ION Orchard and NEX). Ahead, we round up our top picks from the collection.
Made from certified canvas material, the rePEDRO Beat Sneakers are a kinder-to-earth alternative to the brand’s classic Beat sneakers and they’re suited for casual occasions, such as trips to the beach or park. Meanwhile, the angular cross-strap detail and structured footbed of the rePEDRO sandals add a touch of sophistication to your ensembles. Style these with a relaxed linen blouse and a pair of high-waisted shorts and you’re ready for your next brunch date.
Love a little hardware action? Check out the rePEDRO Duo-Toned Shoulder Bag, which is equipped with a detachable shoulder strap for versatility and an on-trend check design. Go hands-free when you’re running errands by wearing this purse as a crossbody, or slide the chain strap over your shoulder for dressier daytime looks. This design is primarily made from certified canvas material as well.
For the aspiring minimalists who appreciate a little structure and texture in their accessories, the rePEDRO Mini Boxy Shoulder Bag is the perfect everyday bag for them with its simple yet sleek design and contemporary boxy silhouette. The chalk colourway is primarily made from microfiber, while its lining is made from Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certified faux suede.
