Sustainably Chic

Contemporary, Natural & Organic | A Conscious Womenswear Line

Fashion, Fashion Pt. 3Natalie Kay


In a small studio in Berlin, KEMP GADEGÅRD is combining nordic style and natural textiles to create a timeless, ethical womenswear label. All pieces are made to last and responsibly produced in Spain. The forefront of their philosophy consists of three things: (1) Aesthetics, (2) Comfort & (3) Attention to detail - and I can attest to each one of these! Their fabrics are incredibly well chosen, and the quality is impeccable. I'm comfortable, and I feel great knowing their clothing has so much thought behind its creation. Being a European brand,  KEMP GADEGÅRD wanted to have manufacturing close to home so they chose a small city on the coast of the mediterranean, Granada - and by they, I mean the two wonderful ladies behind the label, Eilis Kemp Arizmendi and Maya Byskov Gadegaard - women who are speaking up about this disposable society! They want their brand to bring awareness to how we consume, how we produce and how we take care of this planet. 

When it comes to keeping the environment in mind, KEMP GADEGÅRD knew their choice in fabrics would matter. For the Spring Summer 17 collection, they decided to stick with three fabrics: silk, bamboo & cotton. Naturally the favorite, silk is one of the most luxurious fabrics ever - it has the best feel, drape and weight. It is strong, biodegradable and lasting. You really can't beat its beautiful sheen. Another soft fabric - bamboo is fast growing, requires less water than cotton and has no natural pests. Plus, it's extremely comfortable, breathable and hypoallergenic. The perfect summer fabric is cotton, and KEMP GADEGÅRD uses only the organic kind. Unlike the conventional cottons, organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic pesticides or fertilizers, reducing its impact on the earth greatly. The Rodez Trousers and Pierre Bodycon are both made from this fabric {with a mix of bamboo in the bodycon!}. 

I have to admit, I'm not a 'pants person'. However, the Rodez Trousers are making me change my tune. I LOVE THEM! The color, the fit, the style - everything about these pants has me excited. The way they just sit on my hips is so flattering and comfortable. I highly recommend getting a pair for yourself!! I have a feeling you are going to be just as happy as I am with them :D They pair great with the Pierre Bodycon, a top I have been wearing a ton over the last few weeks. It is practical, soft and a great basic. I'm a sucker for a low back and ballerina fit - one of my favorite ways to wear a basic tee!
