After experiencing great success with their first product drop, sustainable design studio Neutrale. are back for some more, lucky you.
Neutrale.’s DROP_01 included two t-shirts, a green tea candle and a sliver bracelet, all fabricated responsibly and sustainably in Portugal. This first collection aimed to exhibit a little bit of what we can expect from the company in the future. They are following this forward-thinking drop by delving deeper into one of their main categories for the future: apparel.
In this article we’ll give you a closer look at the new Neutrale. offerings. DROP_02 consists of two colour variations of two essential sweats: one hoodie and one crewneck jumper, while DROP_03 consists of two new winter-ready fleece hoodies. All inspired by the booming ‘90s of NYC, the sustainable and versatile drops are about as essential as it gets. Looks pretty good, too.
Quarter zips have taken over a fair bit over the last few years - quarter zip turtle necks, quarter zip track tops, you've probably got a few in your wardrobe. So, this new Neutrale. release can be seen as a natural next step for the brand, even though you don't often see hoodies quite like this anywhere else. The brand have switched up the hoodie with the introduction of the Polar fleece construction. Completely unique in regards to its fleece-textured look and feel, the hoodie is elevated through the two relaxed colour hues - Forest Green and Dark Grey - alongside the slightly oversized fit that is offset by the kangaroo pocket and the rib cuff and hem that anchors the silhouette.
The crewneck jumper from Neutrale. is made of organic cotton. This means that the cotton used to make it uses 91% less water than regular cotton and also sees no chemicals during the production process. Like all of Neutrale.’s products, this crewneck is made ethically in Portugal, in a factory that ensures that both material and employee is treated fairly, sustainably and aligns with ethical standards. While the shape of this jumper is fairly classic, the rose quartz colour allows it to stand out. That’s not to mention the quality of this piece, with heavy duty ribbing on the cuffs, waist and raised neck, this one is a veritable winter essential. It comes in a washed Pastel Blue, too.
Carrying all of Neutrale.’s now familiar hallmarks in the way of sustainability and ethics, the washed hoodie takes one more step than the crewneck when it comes to wearability. The washed hoodie is made of mid-weight French Terry cotton that is backed with fleece for that soft comfort we all search for in winter. This sweat also maintains the heavy ribbing on the cuffs and waist with an added kangaroo pocket. As with the crewneck, you can find this hoodie in a Washed Rose colour hue.
With DROP_03 already on the horizon, also taking inspiration from NYC’s ‘90s, now is the time to get familiar with Neutrale. as your new go-to wardrobe filler.
