Le Colonel – Welcome to the world of “Quick Slow Fashion”
Le Colonel create chic accessories for men, women and children from their workshop in Lille, France. The brand gained mega recognition in 2020 for making protective Covid-19 masks for the French health services, and can count everyone from Joel Dommett, Vick Hope and Stephen Fry as fans. Most recently they’ve created these wonderful lounge shorts for women, perfect for relaxing over the festive period and available in a range of check, stripe and Liberty prints.
Conscious sustainability is at the core of everything they do, and they have launched a service perfect to gift yourself this Christmas. This Is How We Do invites consumers to send their pre-loved garments to be given a new lease of life in the form of accessories. Once transformed in Lille, the re-purposed pieces can be returned to the original owner in a new guise, so that the owner can keep their favourite motif or print. OR the item can be sold on to a new home to almost anywhere in the world. A % of the profits is also donated to The Good Planet Foundation – a charity close to the brand’s heart. Most of us have that one lovely item we no longer wear, and the service allows you to gift yourself and / or others.
