Starseeds – Ristretto Bra Top and Macchiato Leggings
The elegantly designed Ristretto bra top is ideal for day wear or evening wear as well as a gym workout, it features a cross back with style lines to celebrate the female curve and flattering low cut cleavage. For fans of two tone coffee the Macchiato leggings will be perfect, modern style lines give an athletic look whilst celebrating the female curve through clever positioning. The leg’s hemline is slanted to create a flattering fit around calves with the dark panels on each side having a magical effect on your look from different angles and pairs perfectly with the Ristretto bra top.
Both the bra top and leggings are made ethically in Europe with materials including spandex and recycled coffee waste mesh fabric, with the coffee fibres consistently retaining their odor control qualities.
Natalia Zawada is the forward thinking creative with a passion for yoga who founded Starseeds, a yogawear and loungewear brand created to fill a gap in the market for workout and leisure wear she wished existed but could never find. As well as studying fashion, pattern cutting and graduating from London College of Fashion in Tailoring, Natalia has also worked as a stylist for fashion magazines and musicians. It was while studying at LCF and working on sustainable fashion projects that Natalia became inspired to create Starseeds which combines her love for yoga with sustainable clothing for yoga practice and more.
As part of the Starseeds mission, their belief is that every conscious choice matters and that going organic does not have to stop at what we put in our bodies. With this in mind the company felt compelled to create the ultimate in feel good fashion, crafted from the most beautiful fabrics available whilst wasting less, recycling more and becoming ethically aware, showing they care. All designs are comfortable and environmentally friendly, made using organic, natural fabrics and produced fairly in Europe. Each piece created starts out as a sketch in their studios ahead of being made up and then tested by yoga practitioners (generally in every pose you can think of) who are pretty skilled at what they do. With Starseeds designs you can be reassured that each piece will be durable, great for working up a sweat in the studio, lounging around the home and mixing with various items from your wardrobe.
Starseeds, who have become known as the frontrunner of the sustainable yoga and athleisure movement have developed a truly innovative and unique way of incorporating coffee waste into their fabrics. Founder Natalia Zawada has commented “Having worked with some of the top fashion houses and brands in the industry, I’ve always wanted to create a sustainable, organic yet fashionable and flattering alternative to what is currently available on the market. Using coffee waste to utilise its varying benefits such as odour – and temperature – neutralising characteristics so useful to yogis and fitness enthusiasts is the epitome of fashion evolution. Brew it. Drink it. Wear it. Make a difference.
