how cool? this sustainable fashion brand is from amsterdam!
Do you already know the sustainable fashion brand Aesthetic Stories? Until November 22 this new brand has a pop-up store at Lil’ Amsterdam! This fine clothing brand has been created by Marieke and Lonneke, who both have a great love for creativity and fashion, but also a strong drive to contribute to society and the world surrounding them. The result? Aesthetic Stories is more than just a clothing label.
The collection is timeless and minimalistic, but – as they call it themselves – with a bubblicious touch. The fashionable items are made of high quality that last long and because the clothes are almost always sold directly to consumers like you and me, prices can be kept low. In the pop-up store at Lil’ Amsterdam, which is open every day, you’ll find the new collection INTERCONNECTED, which is made of 100% extrafine merino wool and consists mainly of knitwear. This collection is made in the north of Portugal at two different family companies.
Sharing the story behind their collection and the fashion industry shows that this young clothing brand is more than a label alone! Aesthetic Stories believes in transparency, because it’s almost impossible to do everything allright as a clothing brand. The pursuit of a sustainable and fair trade business should be self-evident, without shouting it from the roofs. And I totally agree with that and should actually apply to every industry. In any case, I think it’s super cool that two young ladies with this belief created Aesthetic Stories and I’ll definitely have a look at this pop-up store!
