The inaugural collection from Two of Hearts is a sign of the sustainable times, giving ’70s-era styles a chic update with modern fabrics. Called the Catalogue Collection, the eco-friendly line is the first-ever collaboration from fashion designers Jenny Yen and Tabitha Savoie.
Though the designer duo emulated the Sears catalogue’s stilted poses to showcase its retro-styled work, the wearable collection is flattering, fashionable and comfortable. Itchy, scratchy polyester fabrics from yesteryear have been updated with baby-soft soy, bamboo, organic cotton and a bit of Lycra for stretch, so you can kick some butt à la Charlie’s Angels, while wearing the flared Farrah pants, or channel your inner Rhoda Morgenstern while lounging about in the Valerie V-neck vest.
The diverse collection features fun finds, like the cheeky Billie jean-styled tights with faux stitched-heart pockets screened on the rear. Versatile A-line and tank dresses are fashioned from a blend of organic cotton and soy or bamboo. And those who don’t want to grow up can choose The Peter Pan-styled Leila dress screened with autumn leaves.
The company name, says Yen, also reflects the dual purpose of the collection: “to create clothes that we love while still caring for the planet and the future of the environment.”
