10 Sustainable Brands To Love Now And Forever

Just in time for summer.

POSTEDBYELLI CARTER

Now that spring is officially here, we're on the constant lookout for sustainable brands to champion throughout the summer months. With a quest to change our shopping habits for good, we are happy to see that the conversation has turned to brands addressing ethics and responsibility within their business models. With many of our favourite retailers introducing ethical collections, the introduction of fashion rental services and a rise in vintage shopping and independent start-ups, we have put together some of our favourite labels and ways to shop more responsibly this summer.

 

@maisoncleo

Handmade-to-order by daughter-mother duo, Maison Cléo designs the most beautiful, one-off pieces from the heart of their home in France. Using nothing but recycled fabrics, every customer receives a tailor-made service with their exact measurements taken into mind.

 

@houseofsunny

The ultimate cool-girl brand. House of Sunny's unique designs have flooded our Instagram feeds over the last couple of years. Bursting with the most playful patterns, colours and materials, you have to be quick to snap up your favourite pieces, as collections are limited and tend to sell out quick time.

Flattering AND ethical activewear? Its a win-win situation.

Anne-Laure Mais, founder of Musier Paris, has managed to not only make Parisian style look easy, but at an affordable price point, with a 100% sustainable approach. The French fashion label offers timeless pieces, through smaller collections and a focus on quality, to give you a wardrobe that will follow you over the years.

 

@byrotation

Not a fashion label in itself, but a great platform to start shopping more consciously. By Rotation is a peer-to-peer fashion rental app, where you can hire designer clothes and accessories in London and the UK.

 

@vestiaireco

One of the best places to find pre-loved and vintage finds.

 

@faithfullthebrand

Summer dress shop = sorted. Inspired by findings in vintage markets and travel across the world, Faithfull The Brand proudly produces all of their garments in Bali. Investing into local resources, talent and communities, each item is hand-made by local artisans using techniques such as hand-dying and hand-printing.

 

@hurr

Another rental platform to shop your favourite designer brands.

A post shared by GANNI (@ganni)

Although Ganni do not identify as a 'sustainable' brand, the Copenhagen-based label is leading the way when it comes to social and environmental responsibility. With a mindset to become the best version of themselves and a plan to improve their efforts throughout the business - it is their honesty towards the matter that makes us love them as a brand so much more. Not to mention they have mastered the most fun, stylish and easy-going approach to fashion.
