Stripe & Stare x TENCEL™ Summer Party

Stripe & Stare x TENCEL™ Summer Party

This was such an honour! Last night I interviewed two sustainability leaders at the TENCEL™ x Stripe & Stare summer party. The event was held on the King's Road in London's Chelsea. All proceeds from ticket sales went to Smart Works, a charity that believes in the power of clothing and coaching to transform women's confidence - an ethos close to all of the hosts’ hearts.

Summer Party

Only 3% of underwear is sustainably sourced. This is a shocking statistic for something we wear every day and cannot buy second hand! Enter Stripe & Stare. Their underwear is made from TENCEL™ fibres produced in environmentally responsible production processes and using wood only from sustainably managed forests. I’ve loved their designs for years because they are comfortable, colourful and stay put (if you know, you know!)

After drinks, canapés and bra-shaped biscuits, I had the pleasure of interviewing Katie Lopes (co-founder of Stripe & Stare) and Merve Karakullukcu of TENCEL™. These are the top 3 facts they shared with me and our guests...

Replace your knickers every 6-12 months

Stripe and Stare's cycle of sustainability and biodegradability

I always love to re-wear my clothes. But Stripe & Stare’s co-founder Katie Lopes taught me we should be renewing our knicker drawer every 6-12 months. Unlike clothes, we can’t use circular solutions: there isn’t a rental or rewear market for underwear. The solution? Stripe & Stare’s B Edit can be chucked in your compost and their mainline is 95% biodegradable.

Did you know?

Most women only wear 20% of their wardrobes

Katie and I delved into how underwear can open up so much of your wardrobe: whether it's a pink body that renders classic trousers more fun or the right knicker that makes you feel confident enough to wear a tight skirt. After all, to quote the saying outside the pop-up, "Nothing great was ever achieved in uncomfortable knickers."

Let's try pivot to sustainably produced pairs. This is a revolution with our smalls that will make a big difference!

A huge thank you to TENCEL™ for involving me in this informative and inspiring evening. And to everyone who came and helped to raise money for Smart Works!

The pop-up is on the King's Road, Chelsea SW3 5XR and is open until September 3rd.
