Then and Now With Tonne Goodman: A Modern Update on Shalom Harlow’s Iconic Solar-Panel Picture in Honor of Earth Day

 — BY TONNE GOODMAN AND WILLOW LINDLEY 4.22.2020


"NOW: This week, we are here to not only collaborate with you on some stylish, sustainable fashion pieces, but also show off some solar-powered items that can help you make small steps to a greatly improved future. As Tonne says, “You can’t be too dramatic about the state of things—we must be better.” So, we are here to help with both inspirational and practical applications. This image starts with a great, capital G, pair of pants, like the “everyday pant” from Époque Évolution. Made from a blend of recycled polyester and certified non-mulesed wool, these trousers are machine washable, so they stay as sustainable as they start, wear after wear without the need for dry cleaning."

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.”

Best For Fashion and Function: Époque Évolution: 


"This stylish, minimalist design duo makes merino wool dresses and other items that will take you from sightseeing straight through a night out. "

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." 

— Amy Hou, Glamour

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.

"Époque Évolution focuses on reducing its carbon footprint by choosing organic, sustainable, upcycled fibres, as well as dead-stock and post-consumer waste. It then follows the best milling practices. The fabrics chosen in the Époque Évolution collections don’t require dry cleaning, so you can continue to practice sustainability while caring for your wardrobe."

FATHOM

"Founded by two women wanting to pack efficiently and stylishly after doing the opposite, the capsule wardrobe doubles as a uniform for both streamlined travel and everyday wear. The perfect black pant is both comfortable enough for a long-haul flight and stylish enough to wear upon landing. I repeat, you can sleep in these pants and wear them upon arrival all day. A dash of first class with an elastic waistband, the hem comes with bar-tack for homemade length adjustments (i.e. you can cut the hem at home and call it done), and, best of all, the trouser is machine washable"

BUZZFEED

A pair of stretchy trousers that feel like leggings but look like fancy work slacks so you can go from the plane to the board meeting without sacrificing comfort. "I have these and they are out-of-this-world comfortable! I love a pant that's cozy but doesn't look like a pair of sweatpants."

"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
