Ipseity is a London-based concept brand: a multichannel platform for fashion’s best and most unique upcoming designers. A go-to place for ethical and sustainable fashion pieces. Their mission is to give you a story to tell; that is longer than one word when you’re asked where you got your unique pieces from.
They believe sustainability is a way of life and fashion can be a part of it too. This is why they curate unique ethical and sustainable collections of one-off pieces from an array of innovative and international designers who can give you genuine reasons to buy fashion. You have the right to know how a garment was made, using which materials and where in the world. This is the transparency that everyone now needs to make the right choices towards a better future. By wearing small and independent brands, you can have the privilege to benefit from total transparency as the designers source, design and manufacture locally.
Since sustainability can be difficult to decipher, they tried to make it as sexy and meaningful as possible for you; their pieces are now categorised under four ethical categories that they value:
All their capsule collections are hand-made by their designers or by the experienced artisans in their respective countries, thereby creating jobs for local artisans and contributing to the strength and sustainability of their families.
ONE OFF PIECES
They pride themselves on their specially curated meaningful fashion pieces, which you wouldn’t find anywhere else in the world as there is and will ever be just one. So, love it and keep it forever.
They believe that style and sustainability can coexist. Expressing our individuality through fashion must not come at the cost of our planet. With Ipseity, you can be confident that what you wear is good for humans and good for the environment – and they’re always working towards a better future.
Giving purpose to the item that is no longer in use is how we can change our consumerist way of living for the better. As a society, they feel it’s time we start looking at our old clothes as a starting point for the creation of beautiful new pieces.
Finally, Ipseity cares deeply about the planet and creating a business that gives back to nature. That’s why they are thrilled to share that they are partnering with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every product sold.
Designers and brands featured in the last project are Trashion Factory, Daixa Somed, Dowa Bag, Shakila Thebe, Simonetta Sabo, Stewart Scott, Tina Lilienthal, Jen MM DSGN.
