In the spirit of sustainability and low waste, Yabette wanted to find ways to use the off-cut scraps of hemp that were left from her currents rolls. We love the way they came together as capelets. Some of them have added liners in luxuriously warm and strong hemp fleece making them deliciously cozy around the neck and shoulders. Perfect for a layer-happy city like San Francisco. We love the silhouette a capelet gives- emphasizing the shoulders in proportion to the waist. The use of the off-cuts makes each one of these capelets unique. Continue reading →
After a few hours of shooting some new pieces from the Hemp Collection, we moved outside to get our last couple shots. The light was absolutely perfect while Yabette was styling our model and muse, Bianca.
Yabette and Bianca met on an art project Yabette was working on. I remember her telling me about this super cool young woman she met…Yabette immediately thought she would make an awesome Swankety Swank model because she’s not only cool and gorgeous, she’s also a socially conscious creator who does work in the theater world as a performer and playwright among her other many abilities. (You should hear her sing!!) You can read more about Bianca here. Continue reading →
From the moment Bianca slipped into this gorgeous black dress, it was pure magic.
The hemp/organic cotton ribbed jersey stretch is super soft and the black bamboo/organic cotton is slightly see thru. It was obvious that our model and muse felt amazing in this dress. It has a light, airy quality that feels like a whisper on the skin.
But it still looks amazing and sexy all on its own.
If you are looking for a versatile piece that make you look and feel super hot at holiday get-togethers and super cool every other day of the year, this is the piece for you. The Eco Chic Peek Skirt Dress can also be worn as either a dress or a skirt, and features a sexy hi/low hem.
Bringing hemp into the modern age with style happens easily with this Millennial Dress.
This is THE dress of the fall season! The versatile design and medium density weight jersey works in many climates, seasons, and occasions from sophisticated black dress affair to sporty casual. This hemp and organic cotton jersey blend is cozy, yet allows the skin to breathe with its natural fibers. It is a smooth small ribbed knit that also has an easy stretch.
Our first Millenial Dress buyer gave this feedback after taking it on vacation to Amsterdam: “Got a lot of compliments in Amsterdam- wore it a lot, on a bike, in restaurants, all the time.”
We are pleased to unveil more creations in the happy, soul-satisfying realm of ethical fashion. These are all hemp blended fabrics made in the USA and designed by Yabette Swank. Get these pieces in the shop and see the editorial photos by Zia Khan below. Continue reading →
