I love discovering new sustainable fashion labels with super stylish clothing and accessories. One that I recently discovered is Flynn Skye - a consciously chic brand based in Venice, CA. Today's brand spotlight post is all about this socially responsible fashion brand!
WHAT MAKES FLYNN SKYE SO SPECIAL?
Flynn Skye is made by women for women. The brand's clothing pieces are USA-made - designed at their HQ in Venice, CA and produced in downtown LA. Their mission is to leave a positive influence in the fashion community, and emphasizes both the people who buy their clothing as well as the people who make them. All pieces are made in small batches, and the brand values transparency and sustainability. Not only will you look good and Flynn Skye pieces - you'll feel good in them too! Read More
Today's edit revolves around this adorable ruffle overall from Albion Fit. Complete with removable ruffle suspenders and pockets, this overall has got to be the cutest one on the market!
I really love the look, fit, and practicality of Albion Fit's ruffle overall. First off, it is true to size and fit around my waist just right. The only minor complaint I have is that, since my torso is on the shorter side, these suspenders are a tad too long for my body. I've solved for this though by criss-crossing the suspenders in the back! Read More
Excited to share a summery and romantic conscious edit with you today!
This effortless look is so easy to put together and great for those warm summer days. It literally consists of just 3 pieces - my Reformation Harlen maxi slit dress (also available in navy), an Ellen & James bamboo ark clutch, and a pair of Dolce Vita sandal wedges! Read More
I've already mentioned how much I love DL1961, the premium denim brand, in my last lookbook edit here. But I still have so much more to say about them. So I'm dedicating this Brand Spotlight post to be all about DL1961 and their innovative production process :)
WHAT MAKES DL1961 SO SPECIAL?
DL1961 is a NYC-based premium denim brand founded by women. They call themselves the most sustainable denim brand on Earth, and they have good reason to make the claim while being as transparent as possible on their production process. You might be wondering, how are they able to make that claim?
First off, DL1961 has optimized their supply chain to lessen their environmental impact, by consuming less energy, dye materials, and water during the production process. They use US-grown cotton and Lycra materials as well as natural plant-derived indigo dyes. DL1961 has their own power generation plant as well as a facility that's partially solar powered. Using a monitoring software, DL1961 also tracks all of their water and dye consumption for all of the pieces they make, keeping the company super aware and accountable of their eco-impact.
If you're not already impressed by the above facts - get this. A traditional pair of jeans is made using about 1.5K gallons of water. DL1961 uses <10 and treat and recycle 98% of it! Let's get even more specific here. An average pair of DL1961's jeans takes about 8 gallons of water, <1 KWH of energy, and 3.5 hours to make. Using their on-site water recycling plant, they've saved 5.2 million gallons of water in 2017 alone!! Read More
