It's that time of the month again when I get to highlight some of the awesome brands Chlotique proudly carries. This month I chose four brands that produce staple pieces for any wardrobe that are high quality, simple and comfortable. Warning: after you read about each of these brands, you may not be able to control the urge to buy, buy, buy!
Wooden Ships is a new knitwear line Chlotique carries that I instantly fell in love with (who doesn’t love cuddley sweaters??), but researching more about the brand made me realize this line is more amazing than I thought. Paola Buendia founded Wooden Ships with her husband after a trip to Indonesia motivated her creatively and in a business sense. The knits, produced out of Bali, are inspired by the idea of old trading ships—authentic and raw. Not only is the story behind this line unique, the company’s goal is to have virtually no carbon footprint. Wooden ships uses a no-waste approach, meaning all pieces are made-to-order so no raw materials are wasted, and they ship products by sea, reducing the amount of CO2 the company contributes to the planet. Wooden Ships also uses oxo-degradable plastic bags, eco-friendly dyes, bulk packaging and vacuum packing to minimize the number of boxes used, they recycle all excess materials and use solar panels in their factories (hoping to be 100% powered by renewable sources soon). This company has amazing values and knows the key to looking good is feeling comfortable. These slouchy and casual knits are the perfect go-to piece for any wardrobe—and from an economical, sustainable company!
bobi is one of the most popular brands Chlotique carries. The high-quality, comfy fits and sensual nature make the products unbeatable. bobi began as a small, family operated company that set out to create unique, luxury sportswear. This evolved into a world-renowned collection of sophisticated t-shirts with flawless fits and soft fabrics. Today, bobi continues to reflect the beauty of women through novel designs and unique colors in fashion forward tees, tanks, tunics, dress, cardigans and more. I’m warning you, once you buy one, you won’t stop until you have every color in every design!
Parker Smith is a contemporary premium denim line Chlotique loves. A new company, founded in 2014, Parker Smith produces its jeans in LA and is committed to providing a perfectly fitted jean in the latest styles. Using the finest imported European fabrics, eco-friendly fibers, rich washes and hand-sanded finishes, Parker Smith provides hand crafted denim with great detail and great quality. The brand has engineered the perfectly fitting and slimming mid and high rise jean. A good fit and slimming? I need a pair in every wash! Bonus: the denim contains a unique fiber that is not only comfortable and soft to the touch, but is absorbent and naturally resistant to wrinkles.
Z Supply is a brand that carries the essentials for every wardrobe. The brand exudes simplicity, comport and style and the easygoing pieces intermix with any wardrobe, transitioning easily from day to night. Z Supply produces laid-back, relaxed pieces from the finest blend of soft and subtle threads. The company operates its own dye houses so that each piece is customized with exclusive washes. With superior quality and light and breathable fabrics, these staples can make any person look effortlessly chic. This brand gives that cool girl vibe without having to do more than throw on a t-shirt—totally my style!
