Desire Lines Clothing is the brainchild of two creative minds – designer Romy Persaud and multimedia artist Harry Crampton. Having previously worked together on a vintage clothing business, the Brighton based duo decided to open a second hand boutique, selling hand picked preloved treasures that you wont find at major retail stores.
“The main aim is to make wearable clothing that is simple and comfortable and to provide an ethical alternative to the high street.”
Desire lines offers a personal curated experience, and you can even order made to measure designs, letting you pick and choose the fabric and style to complement your individual taste. No sweatshops involved – no fast fashion – while each item has an interesting story to tell. Currently, the boutique is taking part in a community recycling project, upcycling a patchwork quilt using fabrics donated by the community. Follow their journey on the blog.
Offering a relaxed casual style, the current collection features interchangeable, utility pieces, inspired by 1940s workwear, such as plain denim blue jumpsuits and matching loose fit cropped trousers. As an ethical company, organic cottons, denims and bamboo silk are sourced from a fair trade company in Kerala, using low impact dyes, to minimise environmental damage. See the full lookbook here.
