If you're a fan of Reformation's refined retro-boho vibe and earth-conscious message, get familiar with these up-and-coming brands.
Rafa’s shoes are made sustainably from vegan materials in Los Angeles. It just so happens that the clomp-y ’70s platforms, lace-up boots and simple block heel sandals would pair nicely with Reformation's cropped flare bottoms or floral-print sundresses.
This French brand’s name roughly translates to “styled by” and features a tight edit of wrap dresses and ruffle-y blouses in fun custom prints designed by the brand’s art director in Los Angeles. Basically, this label has coolness for days.
This five-year-old brand creates stripped-back, sleek pieces with subtle feminine details. The label uses materials like Tencel, which is made from eucalyptus and processed with less water than cotton and MicroModal, which is sustainably harvested from beechwood trees and woven in LA.
This new line is helmed by former Reformation designer Lara Pia Arrobi (go figure) and boasts plenty of easy yet edgy pieces. The spring 2017 collection features a welcome dose of streetwise styling, but keeps the vintage-inspired details like wallpwaper florals and lace-up waistbands.
Vetta is on a mission to help you build a more thoughtful wardrobe. The brand creates mini-capsule collections consisting of a handful of pieces that can be mixed and matched to create a month’s worth of outfits. The clothing is manufactured in a family-run factory in New York from biodegradable, plant-based materials or leftover fabrics diverted from landfills. Even the packaging is 100% recycled.
’60s-era French cool girls are the inspiration behind this t-shirt brand, which knits its minimal roster of wares in the USA from Italian silk yarn. The farthest thing from a fast-fashion brand, Une Heures is all about the timeless, versatile and long-lasting basics with a nostalgic twist.
