The Most Luxurious Eco-Clothing You've Ever Met: Mina & Olya

Even though the sustainable everything movement has been around for decades, it's still hard to find clothing in that category that's super high-end and chic. You'll find an organic cotton t-shirt here and a hemp bag there, but we often covet them for their novelty and wanting to feel good about ourselves than because they are really good looking pieces.

Mina & Olya changes all that with its garments made from majorly high-quality hemp, silk, wool, denim and cotton. Mina Yazdi and Olya Dzilikhova, a pair of San Franciscans who became fast friends when they met in 2008 at their financial and communications corporate jobs. Each piece is hand finished, and you can pretty much see the quality oozing out of everything in their Spring/Summer 2013 collection. They say this latest collection incorporates "the easy separates of the 70's and the edginess and sharp lines of the 80's." In surprising colors for spring (plum, rust) and cuts (lots of asymmetry and some tea lengths) this lookbook is making pine for spring something fierce.
