Ode dress by Loeonie Vlaar Slow Fashion
ODE is a small capsule wardrobe by Leonie Vlaar Slow Fashion, re-designed of vintage items exclusively for Dressr. The inspiration for this collection comes from seeing the massive pile of textile waste, collected by textile sorter Sympany in the Netherlands. There has already been so much time, energy, and knowledge into creating an item. Let this be a tribute to almost new items not going to waste but being revalued. To Leonie, it almost feels like an honor to redesign the item to extend its life and make it accessible to a larger audience. So here is ODE; to the maker, the planet, the materials, and the wearer. “I hold stories from where I’ve been to what I’ve seen and I continue to pursue that dream. Together we can pass on the spirit of the age so let us write stories that pass on knowledge, cause out of that passion I was made. I’ll caress your body and respect its truth. Let this be an ode to both me and you.” – WHILLA WHISPERMade in the Netherlands
Care instructions: Go for a 30° wash on a delicates program, ideally in a washing net without an added softener on a spin cycle of no more than 600 rpm. It’s best to leave it to air dry because high temperatures can cause the garment to shrink.
