I love striped shirts. My husband can sing a song of it, because his shirts always moves into my closet. But good news, darling, you can wear your masculine models again. Because I am now on feminine cuts from waisted to oversized with cute details like scarf collar, trumpet sleeves & Co. These are not only perfect for the business, but also – the French style icons from Emmanuelle Alt to Inès de la Fressange make it a skilful style break to Darling denim, rocking leather jackets, rough Parkas & Co.
my-GREENstyle look: Office outfit with blouse
Blouse ||| It is clear that I have fallen in love with the elegant scarf collar by ETERNA. Because, thanks to the smart cut, it is not only the perfect styling partner for my beloved A-line skirt – as a stylish and uncomplicated variant of the classic rolli, my striped favorite also suits all jeans (a corresponding post follows asap!). The men’s collection I have known since my youth, because my father already at that time put on the perfectly cut shirts of the German traditional company.
XL trumpet sleeves, sweet Volants & Co. make each part a statementpiece
My blouse is from the “1863 by ETERNA” collection – a reminiscence of the founding year of the company. In this collection tradition meets trend: over 150 years of cultivated tailoring art of the traditional company is skillfully combined with trendy elements and cuts. Noble materials, new silhouettes and refined details such as trumpet sleeves, contrast piping and flounces make every piece a statementpiece. Good to know: The entire premium-collection is produced by CO2-neutral compensation. Sustainable environmental and climate protection projects are supported by the Swiss climate protection foundation myclimate in Madagascar and Kenya. More about sustainability at ETERNA – see below. Blouse from ETERNA, about 99,95 Euro. At eterna.de
Skirt ||| Feminine Pencilskirts, well-presented A-line skirts & Co. come with me whenever I wear no jeans. When is that? When I leave my home office to work at a publishing house, on meetings of all kinds, and – quite simply – when I feel like it. I took over the blue Midi-Skirt some time ago from my mother. I love the classic cut, the wool fabric, the color. In short: the hit! And the perfect partner for my office outfit with blouse.
Shoes ||| A bit sad, I am already, that the summer says goodbye. Why am I still looking forward to the fall? Now come finally my metallic shining Loafer, the employment, which had during the fantastic summer my Espandrilles & Co. preceded. Loafer #lapa silverstone from Nine to Five, about 239 euros. At ninetofive.biz
Clutch ||| I bought the hand-made cork darling from Eve & Adis as bargain at the Stijlmarkt on the Praterinsel in Munich. There is unfortunately no longer the same model, but the Cork Essentials Bag comes very close to it. From 59 euros, at eveandadis.com
Sustainability at ETERNA
Environmentally friendly, fair, socially – Sustainability is not a casual phrase in the traditional house, but a self-evident fact, firmly anchored in company philosophy. Delivery cartons, fabric rolls, etc. are used until they are really useless. Only then will they be recycled. Plastic bags have not been around for a long time. The company’s headquarters and all 50 German stores have been using green electricity for years.
A lot of the collection comes from the own factory in Slovakia
And already in 2000, the shirts expert got OEKO-TEX Standard 100plus, since 2015 Made in Green was certified. All products and their components are pollutant tested and all companies are involved in the process produce environmentally friendly and fair products. But ETERNA did not end up with this: as part of its own GOOD SHIRT seal, the Passau-based also committed itself to producing their shirts and blouses with respect for people and the environment in Europe – most of them in their own factory in Slovakia. And if you want to learn more about your favorite part, you can follow the production process of appropriately labeled collection parts using an EAN code under good-shirt.eu.
Upcycling as part of the sustainability strategy
A further building block of their comprehensive sustainability strategy was launched by the Passau-based in May 2017: discarded shirts and blouses can be returned to their German shops and were sent to a sensible second reprocessing or will be recycled.
