Chunky Shoes For The Summer

The 90s are making a comeback in the form of thick-soled shoes and it seems that everyone has embraced it. It all started back in 2015 when sleek sneakers dominated the market. The Adidas Stan Smith was seen during fashion weeks, in the red carpet and of course, everywhere on the streets. Consumers could not seem to get enough of the minimalist sneaker trend. Inspired by Scandinavian style, they were mass adopted as the new fashion shoe of choice.

The chunky shoe or more known in the fashion world as “dad shoe” was first debuted in the Balenciaga FW17 show during the Men’s Paris fashion week. Since then, it was the luxury range who have been wearing this trend. But since this year it has become the shoe of choice for high fashion, athletic brands, and fast-fashion lovers.

The dad sneaker proves to be another example of a trend that blurs traditional gender lines. While it may look like you have bricks strapped to your feet, these thick-soled sneakers are surprisingly lightweight and comfortable.

I have gathered my favorite styles for you to check. Let me know which one is your favorite.

Sustainable Brand: ARMEDANGELS

The German brand ARMEDANGELS makes stylish, trendy and ethical clothes for women and for men. Sustainability, fair trade, ethical practices, and social work are at the core of the brand. For their pieces, they use organic natural fabrics such as cotton, wool, and linen. And they also use semi-synthetics fabrics such as Lenzing, Tencel, Lyocell and recycled plastic. All clothing is made in fair trade factories where people work under fair conditions. The brand works together with three organizations: Ratham, Trinkwasserwald, and Viva con Agua. ARMEDANGELS donate from their profits from every article of clothing sold.

The brand is doing well in terms of changing the perception of eco-friendly clothing being “hippy-like” and not fashionable to it being perceived as cool and stylish.

From the ARMEDANGELS collection of www.watmooi.nl, I got the denim skirt. Here are some pictures:

Pink Skirt Outfit

Sustainable Outfit Of The Week

Strolling down the second-hand market of the city I live in, I stepped upon a shiny pink skirt. At first, I was hesitant to buy it. I was afraid that the color wouldn’t look good on me. But after I saw the opening on the sides and realized that the skirt was as good as new I decided to give it a try. After I washed it I tried it on and started making outfits. I discovered that this skirt is very versatile. It fits with a lot of items from my closet.

On these series of pictures, I show you how I style the skirt in two different outfits. The pictures were made by the photographer Celia Alma from @thelightboxtales

Sustainable Brand: Thinking Mu

Last summer during my stay in Mallorca I discovered the sustainable Spanish brand Thinking Mu. They sell clothes and accessories for man and woman. For their pieces, they use natural organic fabrics like hemp, cotton, merino wool, cashmere, banana fibers (made from banana leaves) and chrome-free leather. They also use recycled polyester from plastic bottles. By this, the brand helps to keep the oceans clean and the marine life to thrive.

Most of Thinking Mu pieces are ethically made in India. They have a long-term relationship with the same garment workers, ensure fair labor practices and offer safe working conditions. The knit collection is produced by a team in Barcelona at a factory that is specialized in knit and it is one of the leaders in the Spanish business.

Not only Thinking Mu make their products in an ethical way with sustainable materials, but they also make them look fun with unique prints and embroidery.

On these series of pictures, I am wearing the ‘Jersey Las Vegans Flock’. The pictures were made by Marisa Elisa Photography.

Sustainable Brand: Alchemist

Scrolling down the sustainable webshop http://www.watmooi.nl I found the Dutch brand: Alchemist. Alchemist is a high-end fashion brand that makes clothing from sustainable fabrics. The brand was founded by the Dutch designer Caroline Mewe. She is based on Amsterdam. For her collections, she combines influences from her childhood in nature with the inspiration she draws from the city.

Fair and sustainable fashion is at the core of the brand. For the brand, is important to know in which countries, by which people and under what conditions the clothes of Alchemist are been made. The team visits their producers at least once a year, to monitor the conditions on site. The producers have a certificate for social-ethical business practices. Alchemist has signed the International Sustainable Clothing and Textile Covenant and is a member of the Fair Wear Foundation. As a result, they are certain that the factories with which they work are controlled and that the workers work under good conditions.

Alchemist produces two collections per year, always paying close attention to the fact that the designs can easily be combined with earlier collections. Their quality requirements are high because what is well made will last a long time.

On these series of pictures, I am wearing the pink voile ruffle blouse. The pictures were made in The Netherlands by Marisa Elisa Photography.
