Fair fashion’s – not to be mistaken for fast fashion – latest export, the Lone Design Club set up shop at 55 Baker Street in the Marylebone area of London. Taking place across Fashion Revolution Week and Earth Day, LDC’s pop-up concept store entitled ‘The Antidote to fast-Fashion’ showcased exciting products from more than 20 sustainable and ethical fashion and accessories brands. That’s not all, alongside the shop, LDC hosted an immersive series of in-store events and experiences where you could meet the designer behind the brand, attend insightful workshops and take part in sustainable styling sessions.
But who exactly are the Lone Design Club? Well, at just one year old, LDC describe themselves as a community that brings together conscious consumers with independent designers by way of experiential retail and online spaces. In short, the Lone Design Club is all about nurturing close relationships between brands and consumers and empowering conscious shoppers with the stories behind each and every purchase.
Our picks from the pop-up? The checked gingham trousers and cream Madelyn shirt which we’ve loving coined the disco bow blouse from the London based sustainable brand Sabinna. The founder Sabinna Rachimova is a Central Saint Martins graduate and has previously worked for Dior and Mary Katrantzou. The namesake label’s fabrics are sourced in Europe while its clothing is ethically made in the UK and Austria. Sabinna won the Fashion Futures award presented by Decoded Fashion in partnership with the British Fashion Council in 2017.
The satin wonders from affordable British luxury brand, Covo Veve are perfectly poised for your summer occasion-wear needs. Take your pick from either the green Isla silky maxi dress or the pink, finished with an adjustable neck tie so one size fits all. Coco Veve’s silky slip is timeless and should serve you well.
Tie-dye perfection was served in the form of ethical brand Edward Mongzar’s marbled pieces, while the timeless pink knits from Les 100 Ciels are especially suitable. If you’re in the market for some new beachwear essentials, load up on the stylish sustainable swimwear from Maari and shield your eyes with shades from the premium sunglasses label Pala Eyewear, who are on a mission to protect the environment.
