5 Favourite Styles From Our Preloved Fashion Line
by Sarah Jane
Not gonna lie, we’re pretty hyped about our new fashion line, Preloved. Don’t let the name fool you—these aren’t your basic thrift store finds. The truth is, they’re so much better, yet they still embrace an eco-friendly, sustainable approach to fashion design. The beauty of Preloved is that they create gorgeous, one-of-a-kind pieces out of recycled textiles to help counter the wastefulness of fast-fashion. The modern designs and creative combinations of fabrics are all so well constructed and on-trend, they’ve earned some pretty noteworthy fans! Julia Roberts, Kate Hudson, and Anne Hathaway have all sported the cutting-edge designs from the line. Oh, and did we mention they’re Canadian? All the more reason to love this spectacular new line available here in Edmonton!
Fall fashion already has us swooning, but we can’t help but double-take every time we catch a glimpse of these perfectly preloved fabrics in our new line. Check out this oversized plaid top, with three different fabulous flannels, plus black accent sleeves and a contrasting collar. You’d think mixing three different plaids would seem too busy, but their expert designers pull it off by using muted, subtle shades like grey, dusty lavender, and forest green. Button it up and do a French tuck into some jeans, or wear it open as a coverup with a tank top. All about that versatility!
Contrasting patchwork is one of our favourite fall trends this year. This heart sweater looks like it could have been a collaboration between Victoria Beckham and the Scarecrow from Wizard of Oz! What can we say, sometimes unexpected combinations produce the most incredible results! This cozy pullover comes in several different colours (though we are pretty obsessed with this subtle grey and taupe combo that looks gorgeous on every skin tone).
That ultra-chic patchwork look also gives a fresh new feel to their henley sweater. The solid coloured bodice is accented with fair isle sleeves and a cute back detail, for a fun, updated approach to a classic wardrobe staple. It’s a simple, comfy piece that’s so easy to toss on over some jeans, but the extra details give it that extra something-something, so it never looks overly casual. Gotta love fuss-free fashion!
Now, one of our least favourite parts about fall in Edmonton is having to admit defeat against the cold weather and cover up our rad new outfits with bulky, boring coats. But we’ve got good news! Preloved’s coat game is SO strong. Can we talk about how stunning this panelled coat is?! It comes in tons of other colours, so we promise we won’t judge you if you help yourself to more than one. For a little added warmth, they’ve also released a collection of printed scarves. They make great gifts, but consider yourself warned: they are pretty hard to part with, and you’ll likely be tempted to keep them for yourself. Again, we won’t judge!
Now, it’s hard to pick a favourite from this collection since, let’s face it, they’re all phenomenal. But this patchwork coat is pretty dang amazing. The burgundy collar? Yes, please. The printed vintage sweater detailing? Double yes. The cable knit back panel? Pinch me, this must be a dream. It comes in a bunch of other colour palettes that are so perfect for the chillier months, so you can still turn heads even when you’re all bundled up.
Our Preloved shop section is full of so many distinctly beautiful new arrivals that you’ll absolutely love wearing. They’re ultra-cool, comfortable, Canadian, and you can feel good about wearing them since they’re an environmentally-conscious brand. It’s not every day that you encounter a fashion line produced with such integrity, but hey, only the best for you fine folks here in Edmonton!
