New Label Love: Amour Vert Crafts Sustainable Elevated Basics

Amour Vert - Linda Balti

San Francisco has been experiencing a bit of a fashion renaissance lately, and, really, it’s about time. The city that once birthed the iconic brands Levi’s, Esprit, and Gap has spent most of the last twenty years being known the most unfashionable major city in North America. But, over the past few years, the San Francisco fashion scene has come back to life as the pulsing center of the slow fashion movement. Now I can easily rattle off nearly a dozen sustainable, ethical fashion labels that call San Francisco home.

One of my favorite San Francisco fashion labels is Amour Vert. This socially responsible brand combines a gift for beautifully elevated basics with ethical practices like predominately American manufacturing, non-toxic dyes, sustainable fabrics, and a zero-waste philosophy. Need another reason to love Amour Vert? All domestic online orders ship free from San Francisco, and returns are free too!

Check out some of my favorites from Amour Vert’s fall collection…

This 100% merino wool sweater is about as cozy as it gets for fall.

A black ponte knit dress makes for a perfect work-to-cocktails option, especially when travelling. The keyhole back detail adds a little extra oomph.

It doesn’t get much more flattering than a wrap front draped tee. This Modal/ Spandex blend is available in four solid colors and a chic striped option. I’m partial to the black version, of course.

What’s winter without a fantastic chunky knit to curl up in every weekend? This navy merino wool cardigan fills that cold weather wardrobe hole just right.

One more cardigan… I can’t help myself. They have so many great options in the cardi department. The kimono sleeves on this camel-colored beauty add a lot of visual interest.
