After several successful internationally made collections, Cuyana is coming home– in an unconventional way. Founders, Karla Gallardo and Shilpa Shah are challenging shoppers through the “Lean Closet” movement that encourages women to clean out their closets.
“Our goal is to help women cultivate their closets over time, with modern, classic and well-made pieces, instead of constantly consuming and continuing to face the age-old dilemma of, ‘Why do I have nothing to wear?’” said co-founder Shilpa Shah. “The ‘Lean Closet’ initiative is an idea that’s meant to revitalize retail. It’s our attempt to galvanize women to buy purposefully, buy well, and give back.”
Pieces donated by using the reusable bag provided by Cuyana will go to their non-profit partners and customers will get credit toward her next purchase. And their new spring/summer collection boasts pieces made in Mexico and Turkey that combine femininity and durability.
We love them so much, we have a few things in mind we’d trade some of our old garments for:
Boyfriend Shirt in Nectarine, $120
City Walk Panana Hat, $58
Beaded Wrap Bracelet in Gold, $115
Embroidered Clutch in Black, $160
