The terms “fast” and “sustainable” are rarely synonymous in the fashion industry. Until H&M’s sustainable collections, that is. The affordable mega-retailer is committed to making their retail operations more eco-chic, and with their latest Close the Loop denim collection, their sustainability efforts are have reached the jeanius threshold.

The six-piece denim collection, which is out on October 5th, features must-have pieces that come both at a sustainable environmental cost and IRL price tag. With three pairs of drool-worthy jeans, overalls, a pencil skirt, and a covetable denim jacket, the collection proves a worthy contender to the many, many ahhh-mazing fall collections to hit the market as of late.

Classic silhouettes are offset by modern details like raw-edge hems and funky zippers that give these threads an even more amplified kick. What’s more, each item is crafted from 20 percent post-consumer recycled textiles, gathered directly from H&M’s “take-back” in-store garment collecting initiatives. So you can breathe an environmentally conscious sigh of relief every time you slip one of these well-crafted gems on.

“For the latest Close the Loop Denim collection, we’re trying to evoke the feeling of ‘Modern Vintage,'” Ann-Sofie Johansson, Creative Advisor at H&M, said via statement.

H&M has added stunning installments to the sustainable line, including wedding dresses and red carpet gowns. As Refinery 29 points out, they’ve also set a company goal that by the year 2030, more of their clothing will be made from recycled goods and sustainable fabrics than new materials.

Let’s take a look at the pieces in the collection, shall we?

These light-wash, high-waisted jeans with a frayed knee and cuffed ankles are the ideal addition to your everyday jeans rotation.

But if cuffed jeans aren’t your thing, then perhaps these longer straight-leg jeans are more your speed.
