— Stephanie Osmanski, October 6 2020

Effortlessly Chic Travel Pants to Pack for Your Next Trip

— October 1 2020

"If you need to head to a business meeting straight from a long plane, train, or car ride, the Jet Set Trouser from women-owned clothing brand Epoque Evolution will do the trick. Made with a machine washable material that won’t wrinkle and is quick to dry, these pants will leave you looking polished no matter how long you’ve been sitting in the same position (or biking around the city).


If front pockets tend to bulge around your hips, these pants are pocketless in the front and feature pull-on styling making them feel like a fitted pair of high-waisted leggings (there are two pockets in the back that are large enough to hold an iPhone Plus or your passport). Designed for travelers of all heights, you’ll find a bartack at the hem so you can customize the fit. (They’re also available in petite sizing.)"

— Janet Eastman, September 25 2020

"Epoque Evolution’s Orion Legging II ($118) is another good example of upscale athleisure wear: It’s sharp looking with front ankle slits. It’s designed to shape and lift. It’s made of soft, sustainable, durable fabrics that dry quickly and wick away sweat."

A Sustainable Fashion Brand That Innovates With Fabrics and Resale Program

 — Katherine Martinko, August 5, 2020


"époque évolution never fails to impress me with its versatile, minimalist designs that push the envelope when it comes to sustainability. It doesn't sell a broad range of products, but the ones it does sell have been carefully and thoroughly designed, many using deadstock and surplus fabrics. 

Its latest One Collection features four basic items – a loose V-neck pocket dress, a pencil skirt, a crop top, and a fold-over bathing suit bottom – that are all made with Econyl, a 100 percent regenerated nylon fabric that comes from abandoned fishing nets and synthetic carpets. The items are blended with 35 percent Lycra for stretch. The result is a super soft, wrinkle-free, double-layered material that's even machine-washable.

époque évolution's clothes are certainly built to last – and to impress, year after year. You won't be disappointed."

Once a WFH Staple, Athleisure Gets Down to Business

 — Flora Tsapovsky June 22, 2020


"The fabric’s robust-yet-fine texture made a star out of Epoque’s Jet Set Trouser. The utterly stretchy pants are so comfortable you’ll never want to take them off, yet they’re just structured enough to inject some motivation into a WFH morning. Machine washable, because yogurt and baby drool."

“The lines between leisure and professional are blurred. People are often sitting at their desks for hours on Zoom calls or trading off work and parenting duties. Your workwear now needs to be kid- and workout-friendly.”

"A new wave of brands such as Paskho, Époque Évolution and Anatomie are creating clothes for travel that combine the benefits of sportswear—elastic waists, wrinkle-resistant/sweat-wicking/odor-eating fabrics—with neat, stylish cuts."

GLAMOUR

"When I wore the Orion leggings to the office—because yes, I wear these to work—someone stopped to ask me if they were indeed Céline. (Is there a greater compliment you could give a fashion editor?) They’ve come with me to yoga and Pilates, on dog walks and road trips, and to professional functions. I’ve worn them with Birkenstocks, sneakers, kitten heels…any shoe, really, because the slit is great for showing off your footwear. 

For me, these leggings aren’t an afterthought, or a lazy-day outfit solution—they’re my new go-to bottoms, for any and every scenario. I’ve turned two other editors onto them: Both are new moms who were looking for pants that looked chic but would also allow them to keep up with their kids. Between the three of us, we’ve really put them to the test. Our conclusion? These are truly the ultimate black leggings."

WELL AND GOOD

Yes, this shirt helps me avoid looking like a sweaty mess, but it also just helps me look generally chic. It’s slightly boxy with slits on the side, and literally goes with everything. In the two months I’ve owned it, I’ve worn it with a denim skirt and sandals, a pair of bike shorts and heels (and a cool knotted headband, of course), and tied in the front over a bathing suit. It’s made its appearance everywhere from my office to dates to the beach, and has somehow looked appropriate in all three locales.

"During November, I challenged myself to only wear eleven items (including shoes) as a way to foster simplicity and contentment in a month that can be prone to becoming a bit chaotic.To be honest, the whole challenge felt rather anticlimactic once it was done. I didn’t feel deprived or bored in the slightest."

ERIN FRED BLOG

"Since then, I had done my fair share of research into the eco-friendly segment of the fashion industry, but what made me do a double-take with époque évolution was their vision for creating their new line: experiences first. “Living your life, not shopping or packing for it” means that “style doesn’t need to be precious, or dry-clean only, or exclusive, or uncomfortable, or destructive. ”Their translation of that vision manifested into a line of workout/ work/ nightlife/ travel/ swim-ready apparel for every career woman on-the-go. Okay, I get the first four options, but swim-ready?! I hadn’t heard of that before. Not to mention their method of only using sustainable, organic, up-cycled, deadstock and post-consumer waste recycled fibers when available, and working solely with mills that are committed to best practices and reducing the collective carbon footprint. *snap snap snap*" — ERIN FRED

"This past Saturday, I had the privilege of attending a small influencer gathering to celebrate mindfulness in the fashion, beauty and health industry. The event took place at Summerland Salon and Spa, where a group of powerful women came together to explore the new collection by époque évolution, a clothing company that is setting a new standard for change in the fashion industry. While traveling on a trip to Morocco, the designers, Hannah Franco and Nancy Taylor put their heads together and came up with a brilliant clothing company that is now Epoque Evolution. They specialize in sustainable wardrobe pieces that make dressing simple for any girl on the go. This brand has a "corporate meets yoga" aesthetic with their attire. Their versatile outfits are acceptable for the office and everyday dwellings like working out, running errands, nights out on the town...any occasion, you name it! These clothes will take you there." — KARA

POP SUGAR

"I knew this splurge would be worth it, since it's really a three-in-one deal, and the Flux Top ($148) hasn't disappointed. It's an elegant crop top that pair flawlessly with high-waisted pants, but for me it's mostly a ridiculously comfy sports bra that doubles as a bikini top. Yep. It's wicking fabric makes for one fast-drying swimsuit top that provides ample coverage and support for workouts, too. It's performed beautifully in yoga flow (think lots of jumping back into Chaturanga), mega Reformer sessions, and vigorous studio cycling classes. And the open back and straps look so cool when worn under a flowy tank top with cutouts. Since it's so multifunctioning, I have found it's perfect for travel." — Susi May, senior content director

"What started as a discussion about their ambitions — namely their combined passion for better, more responsible women’s garments that could stand up to the trials of the modern woman, became the brand known as époque évolution. We sat down with these founders to discuss what it was like starting over from scratch, what influences them, and how they are building their brand into a household name." — BACKBONE PLM
