Today’s consumers are more educated and conscientious than ever and many shoppers are voting for change with their wallets. Increasingly, shoppers are choosing slow, sustainable fashion over fast fashion. They are looking for brands that stand for durability, eco-friendly manufacturing, and the ethical treatment of labourers.
Much thought and care go into choosing the brands we carry. We select our suppliers not only because they offer the gorgeous, high-quality styles you’ve come to love, we also choose them because their company values are in alignment with our own. Over the coming months, we’d like you to get to know all our favourite brands better, so we’ll be featuring our lingerie and loungewear suppliers regularly and explaining what makes them so special to us.
MEY – Beautiful and Sustainable Fashion
In honour of Earth Day, let us introduce you to Mey Bodywear! Founded in 1928, Mey is a family-owned German company that creates long-lasting, high-quality sustainable fashions, including some of the most loved bras and loungewear we carry at Diane’s.
Earth Day is every day at Mey because they see sustainability as a pillar to their business success. This company continuously improves its standards and manufacturing processes to use less power and resources, be kinder to the earth, reduce human rights risk, and eliminate cruelty to animals. Each aspect of their production and distribution process is environmentally and socially conscious.
Everything from the garment design to the chemical-free hand-picked premium Peruvian Pima cotton they use for their fabrics, to the cutting and finishing of each piece, to the minimal and recycled packing materials, to their hanger recycling program, which creates jobs for people with disabilities.
Mey manufactures the majority of its products in their own factories in Germany, Portugal and Hungary. They are known not only for their progressive business practices but their modern colour palettes, playful patterns, luxe fabrics and of course, sustainable fashion. For more details, you can check out the Mey website.
Stay at Home Chic – so many possible combinations!
The newest Mey collection has arrived at Diane’s Lingerie. Whether you prefer a two-piece set or you’re more of the tunic type, we’ve got you covered. The easy, breezy relaxed fit of these 96% modal pj’s will have you lounging in comfort and style.
Pair a gorgeous lace-trim Colette camisole in Aronia or Pearl with the summer-weight Emila pants for a feminine and contemporary look. Throw a blazer over the same camisole and “BOOM!” you are ready to Zoom. This lovely ensemble also happens to go beautifully with the Joan full cup bra in Aronia or Pale Blush.
Pants over dresses are all the rage. Although the Emila tunic is fantastic on its own, try throwing it over the Emila pant for a modern lockdown look. The print is large but the colours are soft which makes it less of a risk for people just dipping their toes into this trend.
Not into matchy-matchy? The Alena short sleeve top is made to be worn with the Emila pant but is so versatile and comfortable you’ll want to pair it with jeans or shorts to maximize the wear.
