"London-based designer Elliss Solomon has joined forces with SARDIN to create an exclusive capsule collection, celebrating feminist heroes of the past."

 

Founded in 2016, Elliss Solomon established her brand out of a desire to create clothing using environmentally conscious design methods and minimal waste. Solomon maintains that it is vital for her brand to have a low impact on the earth; her designs use natural fabrics, from organic cotton, to hemp and bamboo. With creativity and production processes sharing the same East London space, the Hackney-based designer believes upholding a low carbon footprint is central to her brand’s values. From her print references and tongue-in-cheek placements, to her use of recycled jersey, her namesake brand is underwear and layerwear for today’s smart girl. 

In collaboration with SARDIN, ELLISS has created a range of layerwear paying tribute to activists from the past: Emmeline Lawrence and Millicent Fawcett. The campaigns of the 19th Century, by both Lawrence and Fawcett, for women’s rights are still recognised as significant to this day. Bold black and white screen print of both iconic women feature prominently in this capsule collection for SARDIN.
