The AW19 Climatic collection is inspired by MIAMI: a city on the front lines of climate crisis.
See the inspiration and behind the scenes of the AW19 collection in our zine.
This past November, Chromat launched a second design studio in Miami, FL. The new collection was built in this tropical paradise and is designed to be worn from your South Beach workout to your sunset swim.
Simultaneously a paradise and a natural disaster, Miami is on the front lines of climate change with rising water, increased flooding and toxic red tides. Witnessing this has instigated a new consciousness focused on mitigating environmental destruction through sustainable fabrics and more. We recognize that the fashion industry contributes to poisoning waterways through use of toxic chemical dyes, mountains of fast fashion garment trash, inhumane labor practices and growing fibers with pesticides, formaldehydes and more.
We are committed to designing innovative swim and bodywear while ensuring a healthier planet. Chromat swim is made with sustainable fabric that uses regenerated nylon spun from fishing nets recovered from the world’s oceans. We also use up-cycled fabrics and work with safe, ethical, fair-wage factories.
Our goal is to design empowering garments for all bodies. This runway show celebrates the inspiring women, femmes and non-binary #ChromatBABES who inspire us to be bold and unapologetic every day.
THE FUTURE IS EMPOWERING, INCLUSIVE AND SUSTAINABLE.
