Wearing Gudrun Sjoden’s Eco Fashion: Comfy and Ethical


I have been loving the fun and fanciful (and eco-conscious) clothes from Swedish import Gudrun Sjoden since attending her NYC store opening a few months back. And now that I’ve had a chance to wear some of these great pieces, I’m an even bigger fan. High-quality materials meet generous (but smart and flatteringly cut) patterns and prints that are fun and totally unique (as they are coming from the creative mind of Gudrun herself.


Above and below are shots of me wearing the Cirkular Wool Cape with the Striped Cotton Tunic and Eco Cotton Windproof Pants at my new temporary home in the foothills of the Oregon Coast Range on a snowy day. Having enjoyed all three pieces for several months now, I can vouch for their comfort and well-madeness.


A generous hood on the Cirkular Wool Cape means I fold it back to show off the contrasting print, which the entire inside is printed with.

GSTightsI’m a huge fan of Gudrun Sjoden’s various tights and leggings. Above are Patterned Iris Tights are worn here with a Feral Childe Dalloway dress from last season.
