Ivy Oak – Fashion for ever: Interview with Caroline Gentz
by Kristin Walzel
Ivy Oak was founded in 2016 in Berlin with the intention of consciously producing fashion more sustainably – and encouraging its consumption in a similar vein. Founder and designer Caroline Gentz seeks to create clothing that adapts to everyday life – and its special moments. Clothing that wears well in both senses – possibly lasting your entire life. In the process, she prioritizes transparency, with around 80 percent of her collections made in Europe. Ivy Oak offsets all its carbon emissions, and the brand even invests in climate protection. In conversation with us, Caroline describes her vision of what a contemporary fashion market should look like and why you actually already own the most sustainable of products.
