Former Highsnobiety Style Editor and founder of Instagram account @future__dust, Alec Leach examines why we continue to buy so many clothes, despite all we know about fashion and its impact on the planet. With behind-the-scenes insights and philosophical musings supported by infographics and magazine-style pull quotes, Leach takes readers on a journey through the inner workings of consumerism and online culture, touching on sneaker hype, greenwashing and mindfulness along the way. The result is a manifesto for a slower, more intentional relationship with fashion, one that's better for us and better for the planet, too.


Alec Leach writes about fashion, sustainability, greenwashing and consumerism. He has been featured in the New York Times, GQ, Harper's Bazaar and Dazed, and published opinion pieces in Business of Fashion, i-D and The Guardian. Previously, he was Digital Fashion Editor at Highsnobiety.
