During my last trip to Japan, I stumbled across a fashion brand called People Tree. At the first sight, I must say it's not something screaming for your attention. However, the style is so comfortable to see and comfortable to wear.
What really touched my heart though, is the philosophy behind this brand. In short, People Tree creates Fair Trade and organic clothing and accessories by forming lasting partnerships with Fair Trade, organic producers in developing countries.
In order to produce sustainable clothing, People Tree promotes natural and organic farming, avoids polluting substances, protects water supplies, uses biodegradable substances where possible, and recycles materials where possible.
And by following WFTO standards, People Tree also aims to help people in the world's most marginalised communities escape poverty and promote sustainability.
Currently, it seems that People Tree can only be found in Japan and UK. However, I believe that our fellow Malaysian would want be part of such a meaningful brand and products. Therefore, a small collection of People Tree is now available at a LOFT of things!
For more information about this conscientious fashion brand, feel free to explore their website: http://www.peopletree.co.uk/

Every wonder why some women look so fashionable and chic? It's because they know how to utilize a vest or a jacket. Simply by adding one more layer, be it a jacket or a vest, you will look more sophisticated. What's more, by mix and match a jacket or vest, you can instantly get a new look from the old clothes.

My friends all know I am crazy about creative fashion design, especially when the designers experiment and play with structure. Clothing with a touch of sartorial humor also easily win my heart. Hence, it is not hard to imagine my excitement when I found these incredible pieces.
Above is a piece of garment stitched together by 3 singlets. And hence I give it a name, TRIPLETS. It might look weird. However, it is NOT a dramatic or avant garde dress that's only meant for fashion show. When you put this dress on someone, as shown by my beautiful friend Christina, it is actually quite wearable.
What's more, you can TRANSFORM TRIPLETS from a DRESS to a TOP!
Below is also a weird looking T shirt.
It seems that the T shirt is meant for conjoined twins (hence the name, "Conjoined Twins"). Indeed, the body of the T Shirt is joined together and each has only one sleeve. However, you can easily transform this T Shirt into a more "normal" looking T shirt, as shown below.
Ok, now, let's see how it actually looks like when it is worn by real people.
When I was a kid, I so wanted to have a twin brother. Now, when I wear this t shirt, I feel like "oh no, where's my missing half? where is my twin brother? I'm sure you are somewhere, we are just separated by accidents. I'll find you eventually!"
