ECO-FRIENDLY CAPSULE WARDROBES CURATED BY OUR BOUTIQUES

With the wisdom of our Boutique Buyers, creating your own sustainable wardrobe is an easy task.

The concept of slow fashion has officially entered our collective consciousness. With all the scary statistics out there, you may be feeling guilty about the questionable origins of your clothes. But there are easy ways to minimize the environmental impact of your closet. Look for pieces that will transcend seasons and defy trends; shop with quality in mind, not quantity. We picked the brains of our Boutique Buyers to find out why ethical fashion is important to them. With their help, we bring you must-have pieces that will ease you into a greener way of thinking – and shopping. Time to start putting together your sustainable wardrobe…

Albion Stores

Albion Stores

If you buy an item at Albion Stores, you know it's been thoughtfully selected by the boutique. With a diverse selection of contemporary womenswear on offer, the Margate-based store houses those special pieces that you’ll want to hold onto for years to come. The owner, Katie Barber, is committed to only stocking environmentally conscious brands that she truly loves. She shared with us her top tips for shopping sustainably.

“We focus on smaller brands with ethical sensibilities to ensure every product is traceable and made of the highest quality. We believe in buying less and buying well. Investing a little money and time into purchasing from a smaller and more responsible label can help you ensure you’re purchasing not only a better quality piece that stays beautiful longer and that hasn’t been mass produced, but also support an ecosystem of people, community and an economy passionate about making things properly.”

Marsha By The Sea

Marsha By The Sea

Positioned on the Sussex coast, Marsha By The Sea has mastered the seaside aesthetic. Fully embracing their enviable location, the buying team favour beachy French brands like Petit Bateau and Maison Labiche. But they also look for pieces which have been thoughtfully made, subscribing to the idea that you should only buy clothes you intend on wearing again and again. Fiona Harkin, who helms the sunny store, talked to us about the labels you should look out for.

“At Marsha By The Sea, we strive to be as ethical and sustainable as we can. We’re supporting larger brands like Petit Bateau in their switch to organic cotton and Econyl for swimwear (a material made from recycled plastic). Sideline, designed in Brighton, prides itself on ethical and sustainable practices and has removed single-use plastic from their processes completely. These main ethos behind these brands? The more you wear it, the better it gets.”

Lowie

Lowie

If you appreciate clothing that is comfortable, stylish and responsibly-made all at once, Atterley Boutique Lowie should be on your radar. Not only does the London location stock ethical labels like LF Markey and Kings of Indigo – they also carry their own fashion line. Lowie the brand uses organic materials and low-impact handicrafts to produce unique, high-quality pieces. We heard from the founder, Bronwyn Lowenthal, about the incentive behind the label’s admirable ethos.

"I grew up on the wilderness island of Tasmania in Australia so the environment and nature has always been close to my heart. I started Lowie in 2002 with a real focus and interest in handmade items from artisans and crafts people from across the globe. As Lowie has grown our ethical responsibility has also, and we are committed to designing beautiful product in sustainable fabrics and small quantities for conscious women.
