Fashion Indies :: Reformation Dress & Rocker Accessories

Happy Friday, my friends! Have you heard of the brand “Reformation”? I didn’t, until a few weeks ago, got a shout-out from WhoWhatWear, I was intrigued. To be very honest, had there not been pictures of celebrities (models included) wearing their dresses, I wouldn’t have bothered. When I went on its website, I had these initial impressions: simple but very wearable styles, good price points, modern vibe. I ordered a dress (worn in this post), a skirt and a couple of basic knit tops. When I received the order, I was very pleased with the tailoring, the quality of the fabrics and the craftsmanship. None of the pieces went back, which is rare for my online ordering experiences with unfamiliar brands.5S6A98325S6A9874 5S6A9857

The concept of Reformation is feel-good-while-look-good, imagine Whole Food for fashion. It might not be the best analogy, the philosophy and essence is the same. On its website, Reformation says it uses eco-friendly, recycled or leftover fabric, their pieces are designed and manufactured locally in California, and they recycle as much as they can in their facility. Does that sound familiar?5S6A0036

In the world of fashion, there are many small-production labels like Reformation. Often they are only available online and/or have very limited store-presence, often not in major retail stores. I want to call them Fashion Indies, like that of independent films. Their popularity is limited due to small collection of designs and still-more-expensive-than-Zara price points. I am wondering if the demand grows high enough that Reformation becomes the next Vince, will it still be able to maintain its integrity as a feel-good fashion label?

For the mean time, I’d say check them out, the dresses are cute and quality is better than you-know-what brands.

Thank you so much for reading! See you in my next post!

      Thank you, dear! I really like their basics such as long sleeve knitted top. It held up during the wash, which I love!

      Thanks for stopping by, Nadia! What won me over about Reformation was their fabric and cut, of course, now knowing their story, I am even more hooked! 🙂

      A fedora always spice things up for (almost) any outfit, my must-have for all seasons. 🙂

    Speechless! You look amazing in this maxi, so tall and elegant. It just led me to an imaginary film scene in which you are the actress with a nostalgic story behind. I love the third picture most, perfect pose and perfect composition, and story-telling.

      Thank you so much, 揽香! A maxi will always elongate a body, and add that romantic flare to things. 🙂

    you look soooo tall in this dress. Good to know the company.

    1. petiteflower

      I know, sometime it freaks me out how tall I appeared to be in some photos but I am actually borderline petite! Go figure! 😀
