Sustainability in Luxury Fashion

We can safely say that the past year has been one of reflection. Quarantine caused everyone to take a second look at their values and distinguish what is important. This time of self-reflection caused a huge boom of sustainability within the fashion industry. In other words, we had the ability to analyze the consequences of fast-fashion and how to move forward to a sustainable future. At Gwynn’s, we want to be a part of the positive change and sustainability movement that so many brands have taken part in. Here are some of our favorite sustainable brands that we represent.

Sustainability in Luxury Fashion: Eileen Fisher

Eileen Fisher strives to combine simplicity with sustainable luxury and ease. Our collection of Eileen Fisher at Gwynn’s features fashionable comfort. Each piece is crafted of organic and recycled fibers that support clean air and water, local farmers, and human rights.

This brand highlights functional pieces that are easily interchangeable. The Crew Neck Shell pairs well with a blazer and the Boyfriend Jean in Sky Blue, can be worn with the High-Collar Cardigan, or with the Boyfriend Style Cardigan. The Crew Neck Tank Dress can be worn for brunch or as a travel outfit on the flight to your next vacation. These pieces allow for versatility so you can reduce your impulse to buy fast-fashion basics.

Sustainability in Luxury Fashion: What Goes Around Comes Around

What Goes Around Comes Around is a company that purchases authentic, vintage designer goods that include accessories like leather goods and jewelry. Their mission encompasses a sustainable model through their promise to provide gently used, second hand pieces. Gwynn’s offers a curated selection of luxury pieces that help the environment, while upholding the values of these luxury brands.

Get The Look

We love the vintage Hermès scarves because they can be worn around your neck, as a top, around your bag, and so many more ways. Gwynn’s receives inventory daily, so there are always new (to us) leather goods. From wallets to shoulder bags and totes, WGACA offers so many pieces that you can’t find anywhere else.

Sustainability in Luxury Fashion: Lafayette 148 New York

Lafayette 148 New York aims to reduce their impact on the Earth through using fine, Italian fibers in production facilities where chemical and water usage is limited and solar power is ample. Lafayette 148 designers are continually creating ways to use excess material and ensure ethical employee processes and practices.

Get The Look

From basics to statement pieces, Lafayette 148 has so many sustainable options. We’ve been loving the brilliant Harper Dress and Aiden Dress to dress up or down with sneakers or heels. The Maeve Kaftan is versatile, for instance, it can be worn as a cover-up or can spice up a plain, black outfit. The Parker Blouse pairs beautifully with the vibrant Degraw Short and is a vacay-approved look. For never ending outfit possibilities, try the Wyckoff Jean and Siona Shirt (that is available in two colors) to create an infinity of combinations. Don’t forget to accessorize with the Blooming Eden Scarf that comes in two color combos.
