There’s just a few days left until the much anticipated Wimbledon final and we’re serving up some winning looks from our summer sale! These outfits will not only ensure you look absolutely smashing on centre court, but also leave you with something to spend on some strawberries and cream to celebrate. Don’t wait around though, these looks are winners for a reason and they’re going fast!First up is the stunning Caroline Dress. This V-neck dress is crafted from double rib jersey, made from 3% elastane and 97% Fairtrade certified organic cotton. Wearing all white may only be a dress code that applies to the players, but there’s no reason you can’t join in with tradition! But if white isn’t right, it comes in navy too.
If a colourful outfit is more up your street, then pairing the Katy Crochet Jumper with the Wallflower Trousers could be your perfect match. These trousers are from the SS15 People Tree x Orla Kiely collabortation collection and are produced by workers from ‘Creative Art of Souls‘, an ethical enterprise based in Pondicherry, South India.The beautiful Diana Dress features cut out detailing at the neckline, and is skilfully hand woven by artisans who are part of to the producer group named Artisan Hut, which is based in Bangladesh. These highly skilled, traditional hand weavers are being put out of work by the demand for cheap, fast fashion. When the only priority is to get the garment from the design board to the shop floor in 6 weeks, hand weavers cannot compete with the machine-powered looms.
Put the soft, sheer Polly Shirt together with the sophisticated, coral pink Gloria Shorts to ensure you survive the soaring summer temperatures whilst watching the game. Both of these fabulous pieces are 100% fair trade, certified by the World Fair Trade Organisation. The Cassidy Tunic, also available in red, is great for keeping you comfy and cool on a long, hot day. The patterns on this piece were lovingly hand block-printed by the producers from Kumudini, a technique rooted in the ancient textile heritage of Bangladesh. The dyes used in the process are all eco-friendly azo-free dyes made from natural products such as flowers, leaves, barks, and roots of plants and trees.Bringing our look book to a close are the Daphne Jacket and Maryann Skirt – these were made to go together and are the definition of Wimbledon chic! Hand-woven by artisans from Dev Tech, a Fair Trade social business based in Bangladesh, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Kim Sears wearing this golden set.
There are even more fabulous choices in our summer sale, and when you wear People Tree, you look good and feel good knowing your unique garment was made with respect for people and the planet. So why not treat yourself to something new?
