Be still, my monochrome loving heart! The quest for the holy grail, aka the coolest additions possible to my mini me’s wardrobes, is everlasting, but sometimes you jut hit the jackpot by accident. Surfing and procrastinating a lunch break away, I came across a few amazing pieces. Playful with the right amount of cool and not a hint of colour in sight, it was love at first sight. Imagine my surprise when they all seemed to belong to the same brand, aptly named ‘No Colours‘. Check the Emoticons Collection!
This Dutch brand is the brainchild of Laura Van Bakel, a fashion student, who at the tender age of 20 was inspired by the playfulness and love of kids. Items are hand screen-printed and produced in small batches, to make the customer become aware of tthe issues in the modern-day fashion industry: child labour, environmental pollution by the cotton production and the poor working conditions in the clothing factories. Soft cotton, sourced responsably and treated with love, high quality finishing touches, amazing prints, gorgeous tailoring and reasonably priced, what’s not to love about this brand?
