Stripes reigned supreme in the spring / summer fashion shows of 2016. Before, the side-stripe pants had already conquered fans, but the refined air that some designers gave to it, with the choice of sophisticated materials, left the trousers irresistible to many. Designer Toni Sean, of the studio From 6 to 7, bet on the mustard tone and a strip made with the same fabric (pure silk!) to sew this sporty chic piece. Sean is one of many designers in New York who are betting on the slow fashion movement as an awareness tool in the industry. The name of his studio is slow itself: From 6 to 7. An interesting name that can be read as a dream for those who want to work only a few hours – or just an hour – a day, From 6 to 7.
Dreaming (or joking) aside, the conversation is serious. Designers such as Toni Sean, Susana Vial and Tangee Jones advocate for ethical fashion, without the exploitation of labor and cruelty-free to animals (I’m wearing a faux-fur, guys!). The designer Susana Vial, for example, visits each country where she buys her pieces and observes the situation of women’s work, and last month you also read about the slow philosophy of Tangee Jones (click HERE to review it). Toni Sean from his New York studio believes tailor-made pieces will return to fashionable elegance and glamor the industry had at the moment the piece is produced.
