G’day iolé Lingerie
By ALISON CONNOLLY
iolé is a new luxury lingerie label from Melbourne, Australia that specializes in creating pieces that are ethically-conscious and environmentally-friendly. It’s a brand that you might say specializes in “slow fashion”, which means its designs are not dictated by trends but rather by classic looks that will never go out of style. Every piece created by iolé is handmade on the day it’s ordered, which means there is as little waste as possible that goes into the manufacturing process. This also means there are limited quantities made for each collection, which adds an element of exclusivity to their designs. In fact, this lingerie brand often will use lace that is so exclusive, that only a small number of each garment can be created. What’s unique about iolé is that their team feels so confident about the craftsmanship and materials made to create their products that they offer a guarantee of lifetime sewing repairs on all pieces. Luckily all of this exclusivity and handmade ordering does not translate to a lengthy turnaround in receiving your order, in fact, the brand commits to shipping out most orders within just 3 days. At this time all orders go through the brand’s website, which offers free express worldwide shipping. iolé is definitely not only kind to the environment, but kind to its customers!
