Make a conscious choice to value the environment as well as your style, with purchases that last.
It’s an expression that you wouldn’t have heard much about ten years ago, but the term ‘Slow Fashion’ is a hot term taking over the fashion world. The thing is though, it is a philosophy that we at Lou Lou have always valued, even before it had a name.
Slow Fashion is all about the way in which we approach fashion, focusing on the sustainability of products and how they are made. Slow fashion means buying better-quality and classic pieces that will last for longer and stay in fashion for longer, rather than the ‘wear it once and throw it away' mentality.
Some ways to evaluate if your purchases were created with the Slow Fashion philosophy, is to look at whether they are made from high quality or sustainable materials, or if they are mostly sold in smaller boutique stores rather than big chains.
Here at Lou Lou we pride ourselves on achieving all of those qualities. We create luxury staples with our premium natural fabric made from sustainable and breathable Bamboo. Lou Lou Australia provides a collection of contemporary, luxuriously soft wardrobe classic essentials in classic cuts that will last for seasons to come.
To join the Slow Fashion movement with us, a good place to start is by investing in one of our staples. These items will make sure you have a good foundation for a compact wardrobe that will last for years to come. Here are our favourites to get your Lou Lou wardrobe started, with special consideration taken into the time we are going to be spending at home coming into the cooler months.
The Lana Pant is a staple that you will be reaching for over and over again. It has an elasticated waist that will have you in instant comfort, whilst also boasting a dropped crouch to ensure it is flattering, along with practical pockets. You can style them pinched up under the knee or down in winter, so it is the perfect all rounder pant. Paired with one of our flattering stretch tops, these two make for a perfect combo for a staple, Slow Fashion, compact wardrobe.
The Bamboo Pocket Cardi will have you feeling nice and snug. Made from our signature, luxuriously soft bamboo fabric which is thermo-regulating and crease resistant, making it the perfect piece for the ever changing Australian weather. It is maxi length, featuring full length sleeves, open neckline, pockets and side splits to be easily dressed up or down. Partner it with a top and and The Lana Pants or The Luxe Legging you’ll have all the basics for a perfect at home outfit.
Sustainability itself has become a style trend of its own, so there has never been a better time to honour the environment, and make sustainable purchases that last while not having to compromise on style.
Sending love and health,
The Lou Lou Team xx
