In my last blog post, I showed you the three ways I style my Lacausa jumpsuit. Today I review the Santi jumpsuit.
Before I do that, let’s talk about the #FashionRevolution. This week (23 – 29 April) is Fashion Revolution week. It is dedicated to promoting the ethical treatment of workers in the fashion industry. It marks the five year anniversary of the Rana Plaza complex collapse, which killed more than 1100 people. The deceased were employed by a factory producing clothing for a number of fast fashion brands. The Fashion Revolution movement asks that we, consumers, demand transparency and ask #whomademyclothes, in an effort to prevent the continued exploitation of workers for profits.
On my Facebook page I recently posted a link to an article about the improved ethical performance of some well known Australian brands. Remember though, while some of these brands are making an effort to improve the transparency of their supply chains, fast fashion giants continue to mass produce poor quality items made of synthetic fibres, which are essentially adding to the destruction of our planet. Fellow blogger Valerie Gross recently published an excellent rant about synthetic fibres that I recommend you read.
Thank golly gosh that it is getting easier and easier to dress well, on a budget, without supporting fast fashion brands. There are a growing number of brands dedicated to the fair treatment of their workers and sustainable practices. There is also second hand shopping, which is also an excellent guilt free way to quench the thirst for the hunt. Insert promo of the Small Wardrobe shop, which is all about preserving and upcycling high quality recycled clothing made of natural fibres. 😉
Back to the topic of this blog post. Below is the Lacausa Santi jumpsuit.
While I am reviewing specifically the Lacausa Santi jumpsuit, there are a number of different jumpsuit styles available at Lacausa.
I am small. I purchased the Lacausa Santi jumpsuit in XS. In the website images, the length is cropped on the models. As you can see, on me the jumpsuit is maxi length. In addition, I needed to get the straps altered, because the item in its original form was cut too low on me.
The cost of this item is relatively high compared to my other pieces. I feel it is worth the expense though. The quality of the item is excellent. The fabric is a viscose and rayon blend. It is thick, and I have had no issues with pulls or tears. I have laundered it many times and it has maintained its original condition.
Below is an in depth review of the Santi Jumpsuit.
Below is my video about the three ways I wear my black jumpsuit.
As I mentioned in my last post, I am taking part in the Common Threads – Woven through Community event in Western Australia over May and June. If you’ve ever wanted to meet me in person, you can! The event is about ‘Integrating sustainability, creativity, and traditional hand-crafted wisdom of the ages’. I will be doing some presentations on my take on sustainability, from a minimalist point of view. Check out the event website for more details!
