From the dreamy fashion x beauty collaboration we’ve been waiting for to the new high street giant launching a revolutionary rental service, October’s Eco Edit rounds up all the brands doing their thing with a conscience this month.
REFORMATION X SAIE BEAUTY
In a collaboration of what fashion and beauty dreams are made of, say hello to Reformation X Saie Beauty, which launches today. The two sustainable brands have joined forces to create a limited edition new product just in time to give you a glow up for the impending party season.
‘Ref Rose Gold’ is a brand new, limited-edition highlighter that’s a riff on the beauty brand’s signature SaieGlow™ and inspired by Reformation’s stunning holiday collection.
The lightweight, dewy gel-cream comes in a shimmering tone of dusty rose and will add flush to cheeks, eyelids and lips to pair perfectly with Reformation’s collection of silky dresses, pretty tops and vintage styles.
Saie is a brand with global conscience at its heart, aiming to reduce packaging and bioplastics from their products and reduce the carbon footprint of their customers. Shop now for the perfect stocking filler for a beauty treat that’s kinder to the planet.
Ok, so Honna has been on our radar for some time already but we couldn’t let their new-season collection pass by this month’s Eco Edit. If you’re yet to be introduced to the Brit brand, it was founded in 2019 by former stylist Barbara McMillan, to bring ethically-made, seasonless and timeless shapes to sleepwear. In short, PJs you buy once and keep for years to come.
The brand has been picked up by the likes of NET-A-PORTER and Selfridge’s and the AW22 collection is full of traditional seersucker stripes, light airy fabrics like organic cotton, vintage-inspired colour palettes and cute sets destined for reading the Sunday papers in.

Honna makes charming sleepwear sets and one-pieces destined for reading the Sunday papers in.
If you’re in the market for some new high-performance activewear that will keep you warm and dry while treading the winter pavements, check out OTTI.
The brand creates style focussed garments made from recycled and dead-stock materials that doesn’t compromise on functionality. Think everything from swim to gym, outerwear to accessories in bold, motivation colourways and contemporary shapes.
We love the range of biodegradable activewear that includes seamless leggings that will upstand even the most challenging of yoga classes; the waist-cinching waterproof running jackets; and vest and cycling short co-ords that double up as seriously comfy WFH looks too.
JOHN LEWIS & PARTNERS LAUNCH RENTAL
High street hero John Lewis has just launched a fashion rental service for customers who A. don’t want to splash the cash on items they’ll only wear a handful of times, and B. help you reduce your shopping habits for a more conscious, sustainable approach to clothing.
The service is simple. You start by browsing the online collection which includes the likes of rainbow-hued loving Olivia Ruben, statement jewels from Soru and glam evening pieces from Olivia Rose The Label.
Select your favourites, rent and wear on repeat for 4, 8, 10, or 20 days. Delivery comes straight to your door and once you’re finished loving the pre-loved pieces simply send them back using the service’s pre-paid returns label.
Easy and a great option when it comes to finding your perfect looks for the festive party season.
