What if we made our summer looks rhyme with eco-responsibility? During the summer months, whether at work or on vacation, we can continue to dress sustainably, buy less and better! Bye Bye fast fashion, polluting materials and clothes that have traveled the world to come to us. Make way for clothes made in Europe, using recycled, organic or upcycled materials.
Clother has put together 6 looks to be stylish and eco-responsible for all occasions during the summer! Unsurprisingly, organic cotton and recycled cotton, linen, and lyocell are the materials we favor this season!
Eco-responsible for going to work this summer
Formal and responsible
It's not always easy to know how to dress for work when it's hot. Find an outfit that is both light and formal. In Clother's sustainable wardrobe, we found several little gems: a blouse from the Swiss brand Avani, a midi skirt made from upcycled material, or a short dress, always from Avani.
Elegant and perfect for summer: tencel is renowned for being a breathable and pleasant material to wear, to the point that it is nicknamed “vegetable silk”. Something tells us you won't just wear this blouse to work 😉
The Zinia Skirt is made of dark green cotton poplin with red geometric patterns. Refab made this elegant skirt with fabric scraps from furnishing houses!! And yes, this originality guarantees you to wear a limited series!
At Clother, we fall for the Saule model from Avani . Made in France from tencel (lyocell), it is therefore eco-responsible and comes from sustainably managed forests. The details of the dress make it simply chic: its V-neck, its buttons and bows on the sleeves. We validate! Also available in black .
For a more casual look at the end of the week, or if your company's dress code is cooler, we offer you a little combo of 7/8 pants and linen blouse. As a bonus, a little recycled cotton cardigan, if it’s still cool in the morning 🙂
The Umi blouse also exists in a bright blue!
Finish the outfit with your favorite jewelry and a pair of gold sandals!
RIFÒ makes these vests in Tuscany, from recycled denim cotton, for a truly reduced carbon footprint.
With its loose cut, it will provide just the right amount of warmth.
Eco-responsible and comfortable holiday outfits
At the pool or at the beach
Holidays rhyme with swimming (yes, yes, that rhymes). Whether lounging by the pool, or spending a day at the beach, we offer you here THE eco-responsible “far niente” combo: a swimsuit made from recycled material, short overalls in comfortable and practical organic cotton . And to complete it all, beach clothes that make you want to take a nap :)
The bikinis and one-pieces from Julienne , a Swiss brand, are made from Econyl, recycled nylon from fishing nets and plastic waste. Mixed with Lycra, this material offers you optimal support! Made in a family workshop in the north of Portugal, far from Fast Fashion factories. At Clother, you will find 4 patterns and 3 models, to combine as you wish.
We love its sage green color (also available in terracotta) and its large pockets! Wear it directly over your swimsuit (it goes wonderfully with the Goji-colored swimsuits from Julienne) or with a basic white t-shirt. For example, the Made in France linen one from the Tranquille Emile brand.
They maintain the softness of cotton and absorb moisture, while having a much lower carbon footprint than conventional cotton. These linens are made in a small family workshop in Tuscany. To keep in your beach bag for the summer!!
For days that are a little more active, such as a bike ride or a simple walk, Clother offers you a comfortable look, for easy movement: denim shorts in recycled cotton and organic cotton, t-shirt in upcycled cotton, accompanied by light and stylish sneakers !
It is made from industrial scraps of fabric (from the Petit Bateau brand). We call it upcycling! What could be more eco-responsible?
Finally, opt for a pair of recycled and recyclable sneakers! The Ector brand manufactures these lightweight sneakers in France, ideal for summer. The shoes are made of recycled yarn from used plastic bottles.
Original, the shoe is knitted, and therefore has no seams, for unparalleled comfort! Several designs and many colors available
Comfy look for rainy days?
Summer vacation also sometimes means waiting for the bad weather to pass. For cooler, rainy days, we want a comfortable and cozy outfit. Clother offers you cropped jeans, with a flashy and very soft sweatshirt, and a leather-free belt!!
This Cropped Mimi Sun stone model is very comfortable however with its high waist and regular cut. A must have that you won't get tired of!
In 100% organic cotton and recycled cotton it is made in France. It also exists in navy and green, but we love this coral, which is so summery!
This belt is upcycled: it is made in the North of France from fire hoses. Result ? They are very solid and help to give a second life to waste. Also available in red. If you were looking for a vegan belt, here it is!
Are we going out tonight !
Summer also means taking advantage of the long evenings to go out and have fun! For a classy and responsible look for a summer evening, Clother recommends the following look: very elegant organic cotton shorts, a light Tencel camisole, and a teddy jacket so you don't catch a cold!!
It was made in a small workshop in France, with 100% GOTS certified cotton!
With its high waist, slightly flared, and its box pleats at the front, it offers a definitely innovative style!
Super light, a little loose, but not too much, it will leave you free to move, to dance or simply have fun! Also available in powder pink , black And navy blue !
Made by seamstresses in the North of France, the Lagon jacket only exists in a few copies!
This teddy with a punchy tone is perfect for ending the evening outside, but warm!
