Anna Sutton and Alicia Waite’s ethical online shop will give you a fashion influencer’s wardrobe, at a fraction of the price.
Wardrobe woes: we all have them, whether it’s feeling like we don’t have anything we want to wear, forgetting about pieces that we own or just a general fed-upness with our clothes. But how do we conquer these woes without a) breaking the bank and b) shattering our social conscious?
Enter, The Resolution Store, a new online retailer from fashion industry insiders Alicia Waite and Anna Sutton. The site was born through a desire to do something about the shocking statistics surrounding waste, in particular created by the clothing industry. As they note on their site, a fashion garment in the UK lasts an average of 3.3 years before the garment is discarded. Extending the life of a garment from as little as nine months can decrease it’s environmental impact by 20-30%.
So how does The Resolution Store help?
Well, Waite and Sutton – who, between them, have over 20 years insider knowledge – birthed The Resolution Store in a bid to give shoppers the unique opportunity to buy into influencer style directly, extending the life cycle of little worn and un-used clothes.
However, unlike many other resale sites, the space is tightly curated to offer the shoppers the very best edit of pieces. For their first sale, The Resolution Store, is offering up pieces at a brilliantly discounted price from style icons: Pandora Sykes, Lucy Williams, Laura Jackson and Camille Charrière. Visitors on the pop-up site will also be able to shop from brands like Ganni and Reàlisation Par, as well as luxury brands such as Gucci and Erdem.
To celebrate their launch, we give you the five best pieces to shop now.
