Say “sustainable fashion” and most people think it’s an oxymoron. It’s either a shapeless sack sewn together by some hippies who live on the outskirts of Portland or something in a bright tribal print made by village women in some village on another continent (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Enter REFORMATION, an L.A. based line chic and fashion forward, and with clean, sexy lines.
The site explains:
We make all of our pieces from super sustainable materials like Tencel, rescued deadstock fabrics, and repurposed vintage clothing. We partner with fabric mills to develop fabrics made from fibers that have a much lighter environmental footprint compared with conventional cotton or polyester. About a third of our fabrics are vintage or deadstock, which means we give fabric that may be destined for the landfill a second life.
OK, so now that your conscience is calmed, knowing you’re not wearing clothes made by a Burmese nine-year-old, but your lust for fashion forward, contemporary style is sated as well. Just check out some of my favorite pieces currently available on the REFORMATION site.
AND, (as if the sustainable aspect and fashion heart attack wasn’t enough) the prices are reasonable for this level of design. Most dresses are under $200, tops under $100. You’re so very welcome. xx
