Ekyog: France's Eco Fashion Secret is Out!

The Louane dress is made from 100% organic cotton and is dyed (it comes in red too), with low-impact dyes.

When I was in Paris last year meeting up with my dad and stepmom, we all stayed in the Marais district. And for four days I pretty much didn’t leave – the sweet shop-lined, cobblestone streets, the size petite cafes and laid-back vibe (and the cheese shops!) were just….perfect.

So I thought I had wandered into heaven when on top of all the lovely food and picturesque walks, I found an Ekyog boutique (it’s one of many in France), which sold beautifully made, perfectly French, gloriously green clothing.

And yes, they are available online; check out some of my picks from their current lineup – perfect for putting a little Parisian style into your summer. (And right now, it’s all on sale!)

J’adore the pieces in the “Metamorphose” line; they can all be worn multiple ways, like this organic cotton Cocoon striped fabulousness.

The Louna skirt is 100% silk and adheres to Oeko-Tex and GOTS standards.

The Reiko blouse has a cool, summer-sexy back and a flattering cut.
