Burberry has launched a new sustainable clothing range as the demand for eco-friendly retail grows.

The capsule collection is made from recycled waste, and includes a reinvention of the British luxury brand’s lightweight classic car coat.

Burberry has used econyl regenerated nylon – made from fishing nets, fabric scraps and industrial nylon waste – to create the collection.

“Exploring and using innovative materials that foster circularity is central to creating a more sustainable fashion industry,” Burberry vice president of corporate responsibility Pam Batty said.

“This collection is just one of the ways Burberry is actively disrupting and improving every stage of how we create our products because we know our industry can play a key role in building a more sustainable future through science and innovation.”

As part of its goal towards sustainability, Burberry has said it aims to become carbon neutral by 2022.
