rêve en vert & Cyrus Mahboubian – la vue privée

The Fine Art of Sustainable Fashion & Analogue Photography

Launch party 6-9pm on the 19th November at 81 Leonard Street, London EC2A 4QS.

Exhibition runs from 19th – 26th November 2013.

rêve en vert is hosting it’s first exhibition! An installation encapsulating the unique aesthetic and edgy, ethical ethos of the UK’s first platform for high end, hand-crafted and sustainable prêt-à-porter style. The show frames eight diverse visions from eight independent labels with a shared passion for sustainability in high fashion, together with Cyrus Mahboubian’s timelessly romantic analogue photographic works.  RSVP to Imogen Shephard, i@lambtoslaughter.co.uk.

Yarnlight Collective Knitwear

rêve en vert is feeling a bit chilly in London today, and we think there is no better way to warm up than with Yarnlight Collective sweaters, the beautiful knitwear coming out of Paris from the former head of Christian Dior knitwear, Adam Jones.  Jones has created a line of “magic sweaters” that are a combination of cashmere, spun 24-carat gold and 4 per cent carbon to act as a protective shield from the negative electromagnetic waves we are all exposed to on the daily.

Yarnlight Collective Sweaters also have a healing property that is slightly hard to believe.  Jones has been able to incorporate positive energy levels into his fabric, resulting in wearer’s energy fields greatly improving, energy levels increased and stress levels decreased.  We are totally on board with this.  And as if it all weren’t good enough, the sweaters (and soon, scarves) are all produced from the finest factories in Milan, look and feel amazing.  A percentage of profits from the Yarnlight sales is donated to charities promoting meditation and wellness so bravo!  Shop them now at revenvert.com.

rêve en vert goes to New York

And there we find new labels Edith A. Miller and Hare + Hart, both of whom are coming to revenvert.com for SS14.  Miller was formed by two girls who met at a party on Fire Island (we like them already) and now produce cotton basics in a family-run factory in Philadelphia that otherwise would be out of business.

We also spent some time at the Steven Alan showroom in Tribeca, who stocks all up and coming independent designers.  Whilst there, we found supermodel Liya Kebede’s line Lemlem, all hand-knit in Ethiopia with fair-trade practices.  We’re thinking new resortwear at rêve…

We also stopped by to see Jennie at Hare + Hart, and see the new bags in from Buenos Ares.  All of their bags are used from the byproduct of beautiful Argentinian nappa leather, and naturally tanned so no bad chemicals.  Plus they are gorgeous and also incorporate some virgin cow hide for a fur accent.  We can’t wait to get them to London.

We also somehow managed to have a little fun and make our way out to Brooklyn to explore vintage and discover some fabulous street food with our favorite Ellie Blue.

Alix of Bohemia for rêve en vert

We have always loved our favorite Bohemian, but she has outdone herself with her latest capsule collection for us.  Hand-sewn by Alix, we have waistcoats, toile jackets and harem pants amongst others!  All one-of-a-kind, all lovely, can be made to order.  To order, get in touch at info@revenvert.com or have a little fashion show at our Dalston studio.
