If you have always thought that organic and sustainable clothing is not fashionable, too expensive or plain unnecessary, Lake Peace is a fashion label that aims to change that perception. What you choose to put on your body does not just represent your sense of aesthetics but your ethics too - towards yourself, the community and the environment. Now, before you dismiss me for sounding like an arm-chair activist, let me expand on this awesome brand.
Lake Peace makes clothes only out of organic cotton, which, like most natural fabrics, is breathable, soft, highly absorbent and 100% biodegradable. The label’s fashion is vegan, which means no innocent beings are harmed in the making of their clothes. What’s ironically striking about their collection is it’s simplicity. I loved how classic, easy-to-wear and versatile each garment they make really is. For instance, a girlish skater dress in mellow yellow with short butterfly sleeves and a boat neckline. Exudes a beautiful understated elegance that’s hard to come by in mass-produced clothing. Pair it with sneakers and gold hoops for a fun day out with the squad. Add the orange navy stripe long tank dress to your wardrobe and thank me later. It’s basic, sassy and fun. Accessorize it with a long chain and a pair of quirky summery flats and you are ready for brunch or beach or both! Ace the effortless chic look in their round neck white tee with a twisted knot at the hem. Or look fashionably fab in a grey floral cowl neck top.
How affordable is all this, you wonder? One look at the prices and all your fears about ‘ethical fashion being expensive’ can be put to rest. Finally a brand that offers affordable alternatives for anyone who wishes to make the switch.
