Sustainable Fashion | Air & Grace (includes gifted items)

I have made no secret of being a huge fan of Air & Grace over the years. I first met the Founder, Claire when she was at a Spirit of Christmas Fair and fell for a pair of her leopard Chelsea boots. They came home with me and are still a favourite. Since then, no shoe has equalled the comfort of any of the Air & Grace designs I have in my wardrobe (I have more than is probably healthy!).

Air & Grace not only produce shoes, boots and sandals which make you feel like you are walking on a little cloud but they are design led, without being a one season hit along with having a focus on sustainability.

With COVID-19 being ever present in our lives over the past year, it has made me realise how fabulous smaller brands have been at maintaining a strong ethos in aspects such as an amazing customer experience, sustainable manufacturing in a tough market and a general ability to make a purchase feel like a real treat.

With initiatives such as their Repurpose Collection which was aimed at using material which would otherwise have possibly ended up in landfill to the recent Vegan range, Air & Grace continually looks for ways to expand the idea of what it is to be a responsible producer of fashion. All the designs are made in family-run factories in Portugal and Spain with (when travelling was allowed!) Claire visiting the factories regularly to make sure all Air & Grace’s standards were met. It has also meant the air miles are less than those of fashion labels shipping their goods over from a faceless factory in China.

The Roxy Platform Trainer has a subtle lifted sole which makes it great with tracksuit trousers and wide leg jeans whilst also being slim enough to look fab paired with cropped trousers or a dress.
The Moli sandal was a permanent fixture on my feet last Summer. It is so comfortable it’s like wearing slippers out and about. I have the black (pictured) and the tan which work well with just about any Summer outfit. For SS21 Air & Grace have added white and stone suede options for even more versatility.
The Starlight boots are just the most fabulous design. I have them in a Dorothy of Oz Ruby Slipper colour which really perks up any outfit and brightens my day but there are also black and tan options which will both go with literally everything.

Air & Grace can help you build a core shoe wardrobe. They have designs which will help add style to an outfit whilst keeping your feet comfortable as we all start to head out again as more freedom is allowed. Here are the designs I would consider essential!

Oh and there are some rather fabulous new designs due out soo. The clogs will the perfect shoe to go with denim shorts or a floaty dress whist the loafers have been given an update on a classic design with some stunning finishes in leopard and metallic.
