New Stylish and Sustainable Parisian Label Les Sublimes

I always love discovering new ethical fashion brands, and so I was really excited to hear from sustainable Parisian brand Les Sublimes, who are launching their first collection today on crowdfunding site Indiegogo. Offering beautiful wardrobe essentials that are also affordable, luxurious and responsibly-made, the capsule collection is comprised of 6 styles each inspired by different cities, made from Lenzing Modal® and certified organic cotton in a small family-run atelier.

Frustrated with the lack of fashionable and sustainable brands to choose from, founder Alexis Assoignon decided to start her own label and rebrand ethical clothing with a stylish, modern aesthetic, while contradicting the widely held belief that organic and fair-trade must come at a hefty premium - tops from the collection begin at only €45 and dresses at €89. Choosing to shun the industry standard of ever-changing seasonal collections, the brand also offers a permanent assortment of favourite pieces that build on one another to create the perfect wardrobe, which are all made sustainably in France and additionally help fund educational projects for young girls.

"Our purpose at Les Sublimes is to make people happy while respecting Mother Nature, and to represent a hope for a better future. This is the soul of what we do."
Kachen + Alexis, Co-Founders 

The label is a great mix between the fresh, young styling of cult sustainable favourite Reformation and the clean-cut minimalism of Everlane, and I'm even happier that Les Sublimes is based in Europe, as shipping across continents doesn't help my carbon footprint! My favourite pieces from the collection are definitely the Buenos Aires dress and Stockholm tee (below), which could be worn separately or layered together, but there is something for everyone in the 6-piece collection.
