Sustainable shopping has come a long way from the recycled hemp over-sized Ts of the ’90s.  Some of the most prominent luxury brands in the world are making the shift to sustainable practices these days, whether with responsibly made fabrics or more socially responsible production processes. For the rabid, fall-ready shopper, all this fashion-y greening-up means that dressing well and shopping green are no longer necessarily mutually exclusive.

Moving fashion forward in a major way, model-slash-goddess Amber Valletta recently joined forces with international shopping platform Yoox and changed the responsible shopper’s closet for life. Master & Muse gathers top designers together for conscious shopping collections like no other. Think Kenyan-made Vivienne Westwood bags (pictured above), cut-out LBDs from newcomers who only use recycled materials, and vegan peep-toe booties from Crie de Cour. We can’t get enough of another of Amber’s favorites, Joanna Cave, who’s jewelry collection for Master & Muse is absolutely divine.

We  recently spent the morning with Amber at her home here in the ultra-green (if not for the green juice consumption levels alone) city of L.A. Tucked in to her cozy and stylish abode with a couple of green juices, Amber shared a few of her fave pieces from the Master & Muse fall collection as we chatted about our shared values of sustainability, work-life balance and great design…
