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 brand’s mantra is “conscious design for thoughtful living.” Designers Genevieve Saylak and Corissa Santos partner with artisans in India, Guatemala and Bolivia to create handmade fabrics, knitwear and trims for their boho-feminine pieces with an artful twist.
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.
Sofia Shannon is only two seasons into designing for her label, AMUR (which stands for A Mindful Use of Resources), but she has already found fans among the model set—Adriana Lima and Shanina Shaik have worn the line—thanks to her sophisticated yet unabashedly girlie aesthetic.

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.
