Fashion is hardly about compromise. Why trade style for sustainability, comfort for luxury (or vice versa) when it’s possible to have all at once? These are the halcyon days of eco-couture, when designers like ecoSkin’s Sandy Skinner demand responsible production methods, require the use of ethically-sourced materials, and deliver beauty—pure, simple, and tastefully sexy.
Skinner’s Spring 2009 collection of 100% bamboo and tencel-crafted garments was inspired by the planet she’s committed to protecting. Natural landscapes are channeled through subtle floral prints, while the locally-dyed pieces come in hues reminiscent of a desert sunset.
This season, we are partial to the Chestnut shirt dress for a contemporary safari look, the tiered Sassafras dress for salsa dancing under the stars, the slimming, button-accented Sandstone leggings for a sassy, updated basic, and the Cedar Jumpsuit for a comfy and quick one-piece. Your apparel epidermis never looked so good.
