3 Must Have​ Buys That Are Perfect For The Fashion Tech Shy Shopper

Here's what I'm drooling over this week...

I want to start the week off by sharing with you three great finds that had me at hello. Innovative, intelligent and with just enough tech to win you over, I would like you to get better acquainted with 3D recovery smart socks, sustainable trainers made with eco suede and a bra that promotes improved musculoskeletal alignment.

Parásole 3D recovery socks by Fly Kytin

Recently, we were introduced to 3D recovery socks. Designed and engineered by a small team of entrepreneurs, the socks offer arch support and micro cushioning in the comfort and freedom of your favourite socks.

Launched last summer (2018), Parásole by Fly Kytin finished in the top 1% of Kickstarter campaigns and generated 200K in revenue before selling out on Indiegogo.

Comfortable and 100% recyclable, Parásole adapts to the natural curves of your feet while relieving Foot Fatigue and Tissue Stress. The 3D recovery socks also offer arch support by combining the comfort of compression socks with the benefits of a supportive insole.

Designed with 360º degrees of breathability means that the sustainably designed socks that are entirely recyclable will allow your feet to both breath and stay cool.

Kinflyte Three-piece Freedom Essentials Capsule Collection

With, 80 per cent of U.S. women wearing ill-fitting bras, Kinflyte, a new apparel brand, has decided to reinvent the kind of underwear designed to help lower this startling statistic. The San Francisco Bay startup’s solution was to come up with a three-piece Freedom Essentials Capsule which features a bra, built-in bra top, and high rise underwear.

Made from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles (rPET), the collection, which has been designed to fit the contours of the body like a second skin, brags high-performance properties like moisture-wicking, anti-microbial, anti-odour and UPF50 UV protection. Promoting improved musculoskeletal alignment with support for the back, shoulders, and front, the three-piece capsule, made with breathable, soft fabrics, pays homage to the art deco period.

Available for pre-order on Indiegogo you can try to grab one of the limited early bird packages that are available for $169.00 for the three-piece set, which is 45% off MSRP.

Sustainable Tretorn Sneakers

We wrote about Tretorn’s sustainable initiatives before. This time around, the classic brand has reinvented its famous trainers for 2019. Using recyclable and recycled materials including recycled rubber and eco suede, they have come up a shoe that will appeal to the conscious shopper.
