The Tortoise or The Hare?

Slow and Steady Wins the Race.  A clothing company that might just skate the line between fashion brilliance and political sanctity. Addressing two of the most important issues in fashion:

01) Why do “experimental ideas only exist in the high-priced.. realm?”

02) Why is it that massive chain stores provide only “trickle down basics?”

Slow and Steady “catalogue(s) ideas that are focused on a specific and fundamental characteristic of clothing design.” They use simple, basic fabrics to make their pieces affordable and a lot of times vegan.

Unfortunately, in order to achieve some of their goals of the art form of fashion they only make 100 of each design. All designs are made to stand the test of time (see Slow Fashion) and redirect the wasteful nature of trendiness.

I just want to quote their whole page I feel so passionate about it. It’s pretty much what I’ve been looking for in fashion: a politically conscious vision in fashion-forward design.

Also, I want these so much I might crap my pants...

Wedges "covered entirely of natural, unbleached canvas." You may also find them here.

Love you, mean it
