Adorable little Nora Caliguri from Season One has her new eco-friendly Larsen Gray collection available for sale. We contacted her to tell us a little bit about the line. She responded in her usual effervescent manner.
"How are you?!?
I am so excited to finally connect you to where my clothes are (here and here).
The collection is called Larsen Gray. I am currently in Henri Bendels, Montmarte, and Canteloupe, Jessie James, Blush for New York, Lisa Klein in LA, and about 100 more stores across the country.
LARSEN GRAY--The company that owns Larsen Gray, Authentic Lifestyle Products, has been one of the largest providers of organic and sustainable materials to the fashion industry for three years. Along with being mindful of the environment, the company helps hundreds of families in Lesotho Africa, with health programs and support through its manufacturing. Larsen Gray, a project that we started for a younger more fashionable girl strives to do its best for the environment, labor, and the consumer as well.
While it is not completely feasible yet to have the type of styles and trims we have 100 percent sustainable, we do our best to have our garments mostly if not 100 percent made with these materials. Finding new and interesting ways to be eco is another thing love to do. The fabrics we use include organic cotton, soybean fiber, bamboo fiber, eco-wool, recycled wool, recycled polyester, silk(which is already a natural fiber) and our new cool find for fall, nature vinyl. (fabric made in a low emissions factory.)
Our designer profile is also on shopbop (you may have seen it already), the line is designed by myself and my friend from Pratt Institute Rachelyn Porter. EXTRA!! on NBC is coming in tomorrow to film a segment on our company, and I will email you guys when that airs! we are soooooo excited!"
So are we! We love it when any of the PR alums are out there making it work and Nora is just the sweetest little thing ever.
As for the collection, it's simple and feminine and chic. We especially like the ruffled tank and cropped jacket. We usually think braiding comes off a little too heavy-looking but we actually like the way it looks here.
PLUS! Eco-friendly! Just in time for Earth Day. Let's hear it for anyone who can make eco-friendly clothes that don't look like something you'd buy at a Phish concert.
