The Acey has been dedicated to offer “innovative brands with integrity” since 2014, and last year, they took a step further, launching their namesake brand. With the in-house collection, founder Holly Allenby combines aesthetics with ethics–she wants to provide a bench mark for sustainable luxury products. Each piece is designed and produced locally, in East London, using 100 % natural and biodegradable end of roll fabric, either end of roll linen from Italy or Tencel from Germany. What this means is less wasteful processes and making use of surplus fabrics which would otherwise be left unused.
At the Make it last office, we enjoy seeing The Acey develop for every season. This spring, we especially crave the Linen Day Dress, perfect for dressing down with a pair of sneakers. Come on summer, we’re ready for you!
Brand to Watch is our regular dispatch of standout labels merging ethics with aesthetics.
