Having worked for a sustainable fashion brand about 5 years ago, I have certainly had my nose to the ground when it comes to finding other brands doing beautiful things in the space of sustainability and fashion.
Today, long gone are the old stereotypes of bland “Eco” fashion. That mentality is slowly melting away as people become better educated and interested in sustainable design, thanks to companies like Rêve en Vert.
Founded in 2013, Rêve En Vert (French for "Dream in Green"), has established itself as the premier online retailer of sustainable luxury. Sustainable luxury being quality style made from a place of consciousness, to which they hold their selected designers. They focus on four tenants: organic, re-made, local and fair. Style is never sacrificed for ethics. The collection is highly curated by their team who exclusively features designers who operate their businesses with respect for people and the planet. Love.
I had a chance to try on some of my new faves, thanks to the team there - and we collaborated on an interview over on their site (check it out here).
Some of my faves on their site included the below.
My first love was these limited edition Melissa Joy Manning Earrings, which are citrine and imperial topaz mismatched earrings. The stones are ethically sourced and reused materials are used when possible. They have an environmentally green factory and methods are green certified. With each product you can read about their specific sustainable fashion efforts.
They are wonderful on too ;)
I paired them with this super simple and flowing summer mini tunic from Mara Hoffman. A perfect beach piece, or just cruising for these last days of summer. Mara Hoffman is committed to transparent supply chain, a diligence to reduce fabric waste, ethical employment standards, focus on employing women, partnerships with artisans and sustainable and innovative materials.
And to add on the perfect addition to any summer wardrobe, I picked out these super sleek Carla Colour Barton glasses in Midnight and Hunter. Carla Colour Barton only works and partners with suppliers who share their ethos and can verify their factories adhere to the highest socially responsible standards. All of the frames of their glasses are made from renewable sources.
Happy Monday, Beauties!
