As a longtime champion of environmental causes and eco-friendly clothing brands, Tonne Goodman—legendary stylist, former Vogue fashion director, current Vogue sustainability editor—has always been my North Star on what to buy, where to buy it, when to buy it, and how to wear it. It doesn’t hurt that she is one of the chicest women I’ve ever met and I idolize her personal style as much as I do her work for both Vogue and our planet. With Tonne’s book, Point of View, coming out last year, we thought a joyful way to talk about the future of fashion would be to look back at some of Tonne’s greatest shoots for Vogue and breathe new life into the looks by shopping them out from sustainable brands. This is a celebration of timelessness—good style is forever as are great wardrobe basics—and we already know Tonne’s edit will stand the test of time.

Then: 

Tonne and I are looking through Vogue’s April 2016 issue when we pause on a page featuring Joan Smalls in a Smart Home tricked out with all the latest gadgets. “There was a great deal of fun conjuring up what the Smart House would include—the new refrigerator that tells you when you are out of milk, the robot that plays with the kids. We actually had a drone car at one point,” Tonne says. I tell her I’m not really sure what a drone car is. As we flip through this shoot titled “Tomorrowland,” which also features two adorable children and actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, we are drawn to the image of Joan in the kitchen with the aforementioned fridge. The caption for the photograph reads: “Loungewear or postmodern formalwear?” I tell Tonne that she didn’t only find a robot for all of our at-home needs for the foreseeable future, but that, through her styling, she also managed to predict our current world and the way we’re dressing in it.

Now: 

Refocusing our forward-looking fashion lens for 2021, we’ve reoutfitted this glam-meets-cozy look with the best sustainable choices, from the perfect loungewear pieces to upgraded kitchen systems.
