Fair Trade Fashion from People Tree for 2014
I caught a sneak peak of ethical clothing company People Tree's Spring Summer 2014 collection
People Tree's ethical clothes always tend to have clean lines and a slightly vintage feel. This has been carried on in the Atelier collection, the garments are designed to be modern classics.
The collection manages to be modern, almost minimalistic, but still carries an air of timeless style. The colour palette is a simple monochrome, freshened up with additions of light pink.
I can imagine a silver screen film icon, like Grace Kelly, wearing this pink belted dress, but can also picture a contemporary style icon like Marion Cotillard looking fabulous in it.
I particularly like this black evening dress.
It's got a 1930s silhouette but the black colour and simple cut brings it up to date.
People Tree is well known for its ethical stance on Fair Trade fashion. The Atelier collection continues the green clothing brief; the garments are made from 100% Fair Trade fabric, including hand-woven silks and cotton. The embellishments are also all hand-stitched.
The range won't be available for a while yet, but it's nice to plan ahead!
