The three up-and-coming eco-responsible brands

New season, new designers... Among the latest finds of Monaco Marine - merci la mer, three fashion brands are among committed and eco-responsible labels. Good news, they will all be available this season at 14, quai Antoine Ier.

 

 

Araks

After studying at the Parsons School of Design in New York and stopping by the J. Crew design offices, designer Araks Yeramyan decided to launch her lingerie line in 2000. Thirteen years later, she made a foray into swimwear while sticking to her memo, that is creating pieces of clothing to "help women feel beautiful". Passionate about colors since a very young age (with a preference for red, yellow and blue), Araks has made bright hues and daring prints her trademark. The designer is also committed to the sustainability of her brand and her designs, and ensures that the manufacturing process is respectful of the environment. Thus, 100% of Araks' collection is manufactured in New York, to help reducing the environmental impact and supporting local companies and suppliers.

 

At Monaco Marine: Seaside essentials, such as colorful swimwear and maxi dresses, which will be available in the coming weeks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Antonello Tedde

For Antonello Tedde, fashion should always be envisioned under the prism of eco-responsibility. Based in London, the designer creates collections that showcase renewable materials, such as naturally tinted wool or recycled cotton. But that's not all: he is committed to preserve the best of traditional Italian artisanal methods, where his ateliers are located. His bags are hand-woven in ethical workshops, all run by women. His latest project? It involves a newly launched ready-to-wear line, under the name Antote.

 

At Monaco Marine: The brand's famous woven bags, but also wrap dresses and light tops will be available in the coming months, just in time for the summer season.

 

 

 

 

 

Escvdo

When two sisters join forces, they create an ethical brand inspired by Peru, their home country. The designers of Escvdo have chosen to call on local craftsmen specialized in ancestral weaving techniques to help them craft their collections. The result? Cheerful and colorful pieces that echo the vibrant colors dear to the Peruvian artist Valentina Maggiolo (the duo's main inspiration), and cut in pima cotton and ecologically-grown alpaca wool.

 

At Monaco Marine: Printed dresses with handwoven details, straw hats or extra-large brick pants, that will ideally be worn over a swimsuit.
