We have been talking a lot about sustainability recently at Harper & Tucker (you can read all about our sustainability mission here). Last week, Natalie and I focused our conversation inward, completing the Conscious Closet Clean-Out and chatting about insights into our own wardrobes during our first H&T Happy Hour. Mindfully cleaning out and informing yourself about your closet is just step 1 in building an ethical wardrobe, so we are now excited to look ahead and show you some of the brands that made us fall in love with the community of sustainable fashion, and introduce you to these new designers that will soon be in our shop!
The whole world has slowed down due to COVID-19, and we have been so lucky that the brands we partner with have worked with us to handle unprecedented challenges. One effect is that our shipments are delayed, so we are expecting to get new collections later than originally planned. We didn't want that to delay your fun though, so we have put together a Pre-Order Collection so that you can have first access to our new arrivals! If you find something you love, pre-order now and know that you will be the first to receive that piece - we will ship it to you as soon as it arrives at our store. We do not yet have exact dates that pre-order items will ship, but we are hoping and anticipating that it should be within the month!
The first of our new sustainable collections are MONTE and Whimsy + Row.
Whimsy + Row is handmade in LA under ethical conditions using only eco-friendly natural fabric and locally sourced deadstock textiles and materials. We love the idea that pieces are made of fabrics leftover by other brands that would otherwise end up in landfills - plus, each piece is like a vintage gem because each collection is made in tiny batches. We encourage you to read about their process - we are truly inspired by the purpose and care in each detail. We are obsessed with the easy, elegant style of Whimsy + Row, and the fits and fabrics that feel better every time you wear them.
If we had known how chic sustainability is, we would have committed to it from the beginning. Here are some of the reasons we love our new sustainable collections:
We have never been more excited about new arrivals than we are right now - and these are just two new collections of many more to come soon! Take a peek at our Pre-Order Collection - each piece is few-of-a-kind, so we encourage you to snatch up anything you can't live without. Plus, we are keeping the party going this week with another H&T Happy Hour this Friday, April 17 at 5:30 EST at @harperantucker Instagram Live! Bring a cocktail and any questions you have - this week we are chatting about our new collections and why sustainable is so chic.
