Vintage Blue is a new eco-friendly, vintage-inspired women’s sportswear line that holds the exclusive license to The All American Girls Professional Baseball League featured in the movie A League of Their Own starring Madonna and Tom Hanks. The line consists of organic tees and totes printed with graphics inspired from the 40’s and 50’s. Vintage Blue not only uses eco-friendly products but uses only chemical free printing methods, and uses sustainable methods in all business practices including print material (when necessary) and hang tags and promotional products. Not only are these ladies reducing their carbon footprint (and yours!) they also donate 5% of each online sale to kiva.org, an organization that supports entrepreneurs in developing countries.
I just found out about Vintage Blue and I’m totally impressed. The styling is adorable and the hair and makeup is a great interpretation of how it was done back in the 1940s. Everything they do is thought out and planned – nothing is left to chance. They’ve considered every detail and I love that they do their research. Their website gives you a great glimpse into their design process and you can see mood boards, sketches and inspiration. On top of all that they have a conscience and are all about female empowerment, and present it all in a positive way. If you look through their “magazine” you’ll see some sneak peaks of the cut & sew collection coming this Spring. I can’t wait! The pieces are so cute and in the video below there’s even talk of “wide-leg trouser sweatpants”! I can already see the new “sweatpant diaries” post.
