I am in love with some of Bibico’s simple, classic dresses, trousers and knitwear! I want to buy it all! As I have mentioned in my other posts I try to wear cotton loose clothing, Bibico gives the benefit of being fashionable and ethical. “A company with a slower “back to basics” approach to fashion focused on creating clothes that were timeless and well made and rejecting the idea of fast fashion.”

This New Zealand brand has really caught my eye with simple but bold looks.
“The limitations of our ethos keeps us innovative. We don’t compromise on design, and embrace restrictions. This gives our garments a strong minimal identity, and we believe the simplicity of our clothing is the first step toward circularity.”
