Back To School: Your Positive Workwear Edit
With the end of summer comes the feeling of something new about to start; whether it’s a new school for children or the return to work for you. Here are the earth-friendly brands to refresh your work wear for the new season.
Joanna Dai has created performance wear for the working woman. With a background in finance working in New York, she knew the importance of a polished wardrobe – Dai was born out of a love for style and a need for function, a call for quality and an understanding of value. From raw materials to final products, they strive to make smart and purposeful decisions every step of the way. DAI is passionate about who makes their clothes from start to finish and believe in delivering premium quality and craftsmanship, at fair prices. DAI is a community that empowers women beyond just performance workwear, and through social impact. DAI is committed to donating a portion of net proceeds to organisations and initiatives that empower women.
Gabriela wanted to create a brand that reflects a slower pace and process: where things are made with care and detail, where tradition is more important than trend, where there is a purpose to every piece. Her two-piece suits have been coveted by celebrities and Editors alike, for an all-in-one look that is ethically-sourced too.
These pieces are perfect for those who are constantly on the go. SDress began with the idea of satisfying the desires and needs of the women they design for by creating their pieces in a respectful way to both the planet and to future generations. SDress draws inspiration from women who want to look chic, feminine and desirable but who also want to be free to travel, spend time with their families, be confident at work, dance and be creative, while looking impeccable along the way. Virtually maintenance free, the fabric is machine washable with no need to iron and no zips or buttons – so you can concentrate on the job in hand.
IN THE BAG
No work wear is complete without the finishing touch – a carry-all for important documents and your everyday belongings. Farah Al Asmar has created a line of handbags inspired by art, culture, architecture and technology, using mindfully-sourced leather certified by the Leather Working Group.
