Meadows embodies playful yet timeless elegance with their range of floral shirts and floor-length dresses that will ensure you make a statement this summer. Allow yourself to be transported back to the era of Jane Austen and the Regency period, with a hint of 70’s folk nostalgia. This brand re-invents summer romance, creating silhouettes that are universally flattering in quality materials; making a purchase of a Meadows garment a lifelong investment.
Quality and elegance does not come at an environmental cost, with the brand ensuring clothes are manufactured in an ethical working environment, where workers safety is paramount. The boutique-sized factories in China are meticulously and consistently monitored by supplier agents, with frequent audits carried out to ensure worker safety, payment of living wage and gender equality are upheld to a high standard. Use of sustainable fabrics central to the brand ethos of Meadows - only industry-standard textile dyes that undergo rigorous testing are used, not to forget that 90% of cotton used in the garments is organic, and all wool yarn used is sourced exclusively from suppliers that adhere to the Responsible Wool Standard. Meadows are continually striving to improve their eco-credentials, with the goal of guaranteeing their products are certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard by 2022.
Designed by Australian born, Central St Martins graduate Louise Markey in Hackney, East London, Meadows is the sister line of LF Markey which offers minimalist, clean-cut silhouettes in a range of bright hues. Despite the contrasting aesthetic of Meadows which channels romanticism and femininity, both brands hold ethical manufacture and the concept of slow fashion at their core. The Hawthorn and Francee dresses are perfect for a countryside picnic on a hot summers day, while the Hosta and Floral Foxglove shirts paired with a pair of jeans and Birkenstocks are the picture of modern-day elegance.
