It’s always thrilling when we discover a new designer with revolutionary vision and cutting edge style, and Chinti and Parker have both in spades. Since 2009, cousins Anna Singh and Rachael Wood have been creating clothing that reflects the pinnacle design; velvet-soft fabrics, unique colour combinations and distinctive prints. Every time they unveil a new style or print, they rock our wardrobe world!
But there’s so much more than meets the eye when it comes to Chinti and Parker designs – and it’s all good. Singh and Wood only use top quality natural materials that are garnered from sustainable sources, and produced by workers in safe environments that pay equitable wages. Each garment has a label outlining its ethical credentials including whether it’s organic, fair trade or made within the EU (or a combination of these), so you can strut your stuff knowing your passion for fashion has left a minimal mark on the world.
When you’re next shopping for a luxe addition to your wardrobe, make Chinti and Parker your first stop. After you check out their line of soft supple jersey designs made in Portugal and downy woven cotton selections from Portugal and India, and feel the luxury of cashmere and wool made from yarns produced at a small family-run factory in Italy against your skin, your search will end there. After all, once you’ve found nirvana, there’s no reason to carry on now, is there?
