Conscious Capsule: Summer 2019

- Brooks Dibble

 
 

THE OFFICIAL START…

…to summer is just around the corner (we see you June 21st!) and in the spirit of minimalism, we’ve rounded up a summer capsule wardrobe that will style you all season long. We’re proud supporters of these brands driving positive change in the world without sacrificing style or quality. 


 
Conscious Capsule: Summer 2019
 
 

DENIM…

…A staple every season really, but summer is the ideal time to invest in versatile pair of white denim and a flattering fitted denim jacket. ABLE is a brand focused on ending generational poverty through providing economic opportunity for women, they even publish their employees’ wages providing unparalleled transparency in an industry cluttered with injustices. You’ll look and feel great wearing the Blanca High Rise ($128) white denim, which can be paired with t-shirt and sneakers or dressed up for a night out. Grab the Merly Jacket ($148) to stay warm and layer it over summer dresses, tanks or tees -- the super flattering fit compliments every look from tomboy to girly-girl.

 
 
 

SNEAKS…

…Our feet are thankful that sneakers have made a style comeback! Pair the V-12 YUCCA ($150) from VEJA with shorts, a dress or denim for equal parts cool and comfort. VEJA is stylishly changing the sneaker game by using organic, agroecological and fair-trade cotton to make the sneaker’s canvas, wild rubber from the Amazonian Forest for the soles and recycled plastic bottles for the innovative mesh. Talk about innovation! PS: How amazing is this summery pattern?

 
 
 

THE LID…

…Skip the shampoo and throw on the iconic Panama Hat ($85) from Cuyana -- made with integrity by skilled craftsmen in Ecuador. The lightweight, breathable style is perfect for the beach and the street. We love this company’s free shipping (in the US) and easy returns, and that’s not all, these guys are committed to helping you create a capsule closet you can feel good about! Cuyana is partnering with thredUP to expand their Lean Closet program. Complimentary Cuyana x thredUP shipping labels are included with every domestic online order from cuyana.com, and available in stores. Use your label to pare down your closet to fewer, better pieces and help benefit women through H.E.A.R.T. (Helping Ease Abuse Related Trauma).

 
 
 

ARM CANDY…

…Add The Double Bar Cuff ($74) by SOKO to your summer stack. Handcrafted in recycled brass by artisans in Kenya using traditional techniques, your purchase promotes artisan innovation and entrepreneurship. The minimalist cuff can stand on its own or stand alongside any other bracelet from woven to puka shell.

 
 
 

IN THE BAG…

…We’re obsessed with the latest bag from Aitch Aitch – the Simone Bucket Bag ($765). This beauty is made with paneled salmon leather skin with an organic hemp-silk fabric interior handcrafted in London by master artisans. The hidden drawstring closure keeps valuables safely tucked away and the flat bottom is perfect for on-the-go lifestyle. Aitch Aitch is an early pioneer of utilizing salmon skin – a sustainable and exotic material that performs as well as it looks. The salmon skin is sourced from organic and sustainable fishing farms in Europe and dyed and tanned using non-toxic and non-chemical processes by a family-owned tannery in Europe.
