WHY TO BUY: Cécile de Fleur designs convertible couture wedding after-party dresses that can transcend long after the big day is over. The timeless styles of the 1950s inspire their collection—opulent negligee dresses made with organic peace silk & intricate floral details with delicacy, almost divine French leavers lace.
The fashion world needs a rebirth, with goals to preserve our world's biodiversity. Therefore, 1 % of every purchase will be donated to the Tree Sisters Foundation, dedicated to empowering women and restoring our rainforests.
What we love: Cécile de Fleur reflects the founder's profound spiritual awakening and the wisdom she soaked in along the way. The butterfly metamorphosis process depicts what the brand represents; death and rebirth. It is fully expressed in the collection from the wildflower hangtags that can be planted + create new life to cruelty-free peace silk, where silkworms are allowed to complete their metamorphosis and transform into butterflies. It is a pleasant reminder to women going through challenges like a cocoon in growth. With patience, faith, and divine timing, you'll transform into a butterfly.

WHY TO BUY: UNEEK was born out of a desire to create a sandal that goes against the grain. Since its launch in 2004, UNEEK has attracted attention in street style circles around the globe and from trendsetters in Japan. The UNEEK is not just a crazy looking shoe - there is a true ethos behind it that aims to drastically change the way we look at the conventional and the old.
UNEEK's design was driven by function, above all comfort. The idea was to recreate the feeling of being barefoot while wearing a shoe. The iconic corded shoe made from recycled PET bottles not only impresses visually with its avant-garde design, but also in terms of sustainability. UNEEK is completely PFC-free and is equipped with a chemical-free, natural codour control.
WHAT WE LOVE: Fashion is not about conformity. UNEEK is a cool product because it defies conformity, because it's different and - most importantly - because it works. People who set trends appreciate UNEEK's commitment to challenging conformity, its relentless pursuit of self-expression and functionality. UNEEK is about taking risks and trying something new.
People don't wear UNEEK because someone else does. Instead, they wear UNEEK because they like what UNEEK symbolises. Don't care what other people think, be yourself!
