Looking for classic silhouettes with a refined twist that also happen to be sustainable, from an independent brand? We’ve got you…
Whether it’s deciding to spend a bit more on pieces we know will last years and years (both style-wise and quality) or buying based on the ethics of brands, we’re all considering our fashion choices a lot more these days, and that’s no bad thing.
One of the most important things we’re after is clothes that are responsibly sourced and sustainably created - without sacrificing style credentials. And independent London-based brand Saint and Sofia do just that.
Not only do they use organic and recycled fabrics for all their clothes (and wrap them in biodegradable and recycled, plastic-free packaging), the team behind the brand have designed for the likes of Matches Fashion, Louis Vuitton, Reiss and Ted Baker - meaning there are classic silhouettes a-plenty, but with a refined grungy twist.
What’s more, they donate all proceeds from the sale of certain products to tree planting charities with the goal of planting 10 million trees in the next 10 years.
Can we just shop the collection already, you ask? Yes, here are six pieces that will give your wardrobe a slick but sustainable makeover.
Saint and Sofia / £130
Regent shirt dress
A flared shirt dress with a feminine shape, made with a super silky Tencel fabric from eucalyptus trees. We love this black signature version, but it comes in poppy mandarin stripes and navy too.
Saint and Sofia / £70
You can’t go wrong with a pair of loose but tailored pants. These have flattering front pleats and a tied belt at the waist, and the teal colour makes them the perfect hue to work with light and dark colours.
Saint and Sofia / £80
This is the perfect throw-on for those cooler summer evenings in this season’s must-have colour. Designed with the softest Italian yarns for a comfortable feel and hand-finished for a relaxed but luxe look.
Saint and Sofia / £45
The tailoring and flattering fit on these will have you feeling dressed to impress when you don’t really want to be and they’re made with a luxurious Italian fabric called Ponte Di Roma that feels silky smooth.
Saint and Sofia / £25
Sometimes it’s the simplest things that make us feel the best. That’s definitely the case with this organic cotton tee that comes in numerous neutrals, and a loose fit that means it goes with literally everything.
Saint and Sofia / £350
A classic with a twist you’ll love forever - Saint and Sofia only make a few of these at a time, using the finest cotton gabardine for a smooth feel and tailoring every detail by hand in dedicated studios in Europe.
Saint and Sofia believe in challenging the status quo, thinking differently and fusing art and science. They design all of their collections in their studios on the Southbank in London, inspired by modern culture, art and music (the art) and created sustainably.
