The fashion industry is known as one of the most competitive industries – fast fashion brands are launching one collection after the other to be the first in setting a trend, manufacturers are pressured, prices are radically cut down and quality becomes of second importance. It is no news that we want to revolutionise this and celebrate slow fashion, fair trade, ethical practices and happy people in the value chain!
In fact, we believe that the whole is more than the sum of its parts. And this does not only mean us working together with you – our readers and customers – but also standing together as as sustainable fashion brands. With a greater vision of treating the people behind our products with respect and eventually changing the fashion world to the better, there is no room for competition. After all, our goal is to make it fashionable to care… together!
Long story short – we teamed up with a bunch of lovely sustainable fashion labels from Berlin to create two sustainably chic summer looks that we don’t want to keep from you:
Sustainably Chic Summer Look #1
Sustainably Chic Summer Look #2
Both looks combine accessories and clothing from five different sustainable fashion brands. You might have spotted our beige raffia slippers in the first look and our turquoise leather babouches – both handmade in Morocco – in the second. They are brought together with accessories from:
