Rossi & Rei
For Rossi & Rei, luxury is a right that every person should have, whether it’s through one’s clothing, food, or overall lifestyle. They have made it their mission to be able to bring this sense of luxury to everyone, through their artisanal products, handmade in Italy by some of the best local crafters. One of these is Veronica Marucci, an Italian artisan in Paris, who creates summer hats by hand. An entire day’s work goes into each summer hat, making each inch of it truly special.
If the artsy and luxurious lifestyle is something you’d fancy, check out Rossi & Rei’s Kickstarter here.
Evelyn & Bobbie
This startup is offering a solution to one of womankind’s oldest problems – the bra. Every woman wants a bra that fits perfectly. Bonus points if it’s a strapless one, with no need to hide straps or awkward bumps and folds caused by the bra. Evelyn & Bobbie promise to revolutionize the bra, giving women all this, and even getting rid of the underwire. Their very own Everyday Bustier (EB) is a wireless and strapless bra that doesn’t fall down, thanks to well-researched and data-driven design. The bras even come in different skin tones, as well as black and navy blue. Evelyn & Bobbie are so confident with their product that they even offer full refunds to those who are unsatisfied with their bras.
If you can’t wait for this different kind of bra, you can check their Kickstarter here.

The RompHim comes in a handful designs and fabrics, such as red and blue chambray, and a splatter print cotton romper.

A sustainable fashion brand that creates unique and chic clothing, SixChel is a brand for the modern day woman. Founder Dina Chavez decided to go the ethical fashion route after experiencing the negative effects of the world’s environmental situation, when she lost her sister to cancer. She decided she didn’t want to contribute to the pollution the fast fashion industry has already created, and instead became a staunch supporter of the ethical fashion space. A brand with a heart, SixChel is set to empower women through a positive and acceptable environment.
