The Best Sustainable Luxury Fashion Stores

Want to be a more conscious consumer, but not sure where to shop? Check out the best sustainable luxury fashion stores online that will allow you to make more ethical purchases, no matter where you live

By Diane Small

Sustainable luxury fashion is now firmly established in the industry. We know this because mainstream online stores are starting to pick up the brands we here at Eluxe have been writing about for almost a decade.

There’s only one problem, though: when ethical luxury is mixed in with normal brands, how is the consumer to know what’s what?

What makes a fashion brand sustainable?

Sustainable luxury fashion brands may do any of the following:

  1. Use less water or hazardous chemicals that can affect your health
  2. Generate less waste by using deadstock fabric or zero waste cutting techniques
  3. Be cruelty-free/vegan
  4. Use biodegradable textiles that don’t contribute microfibers of plastic to the oceans.
  5. Be circular by either upcycling items into clothing, and/or by allowing you to return a used garment for upcycling.

And of course, the garments produced by a sustainable luxury brand will be a cut above your run-of-the-mill labels.

  • Their fabrics will be more opulent
  • Their cutting techniques will allow the garment to fit your body better
  • And of course, each item will be made to last.

Sounds good, right? But the question is: where can you find such clothing?

Why we chose these sustainable luxury fashion stores

Here’s our pick of some of the best sustainable luxury fashion stores online from around the globe. We chose these stores for several reasons:

  1. They carry brands we know we can trust
  2. They provide detailed information on why a garment is sustainable
  3. Their clothing is beautiful, luxe and exclusive
  4. The labels they carry are all pretty much the opposite of ‘fast fashion’

“Though some people use these words interchangeably with terms like eco fashion, vintage fashion, sustainable fashion and slow fashion, we think ethical fashion encompasses a broader and more rigorous set of criteria. No matter how eco-friendly a product is, or how much a company gives to charity, we believe a brand cannot be considered ethical if it has not made a demonstrable commitment to protecting human rights.”
