{ 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 }

Amour Vert translates to Green Love. Appropriately named, considering that this eco-fashion brand has captured my heart with their lofty mission to unite glamour + green design via their selection of beautiful, eco-friendly clothing and accessories.  

AV really has an impressive selection of versatile pieces for work + play, {including some sexy little numbers for day-to-night + a slew of multi-taskers that transition easily from one season to the next + are great for layering}. All apparel is made in the usa of planet-friendly textiles including bamboo, peace silk, organic cotton, recycled polyester, tencel + modal and linen.  
"We put fashion first, but always employ a zero-waste design philosophy and use only organic and sustainable fabrics along with low impact dyes."
Amour Vert also collaborates with emerging + established eco-friendly brands to introduce customers to a whole world of green fashion options, including designers of sustainable denim line, Nudie; upcycled wallets from Beth Springer; fair trade messenger bags + totes from Good for All; toxin-free WeWOOD watches; + handmade accessories by independent artists {like the must-have Seaworthy Cascading Triangle necklace above, handcrafted by Marisa Howard in her Portland, Oregon studio}.

The Amour Vert team set out to design a line of Paris-chic meets Cali-cool ready to wear clothes that prove it is possible to be both fashionable and environmentally responsible. Mission accomplished, I'd say.
