Larkspur is the result of a collaboration between Amanda Bear and Felicia Gaxiola, who discovered they shared the love for vintage eco-friendly lingerie after their paths crossed in a Fashion History class. After shopping for environmentally responsible and fashion forward under garments repeatedly left them empty handed, the collaboration was born and they decided to design a 15-style collection of charming lingerie.
The first collection was designed for contemporary women, with chic and flattering cozy intimates inspired by their shared love of vintage clothing, bohemian neighbourhoods and the occasional rock show. To help bring across the brand’s romantic yet eclectic style, excess fabrics leftover from the fashion industry are being incorporated into the designs, making use of what would become waste and adding an unique quality to each piece.
Having both worked with companies that manufacture exclusively in Los Angeles, the pair was able to gather contacts for sourcing both materials and labour locally, from dyeing and cutting to sewing and packaging. Larkspur is also committed to working only with manufacturers who treat their employees respectfully and value transparency in their business practices.
A Kickstarter campaign is currently running to raise funds to produce the first products, which will be exclusively available through the Kickstarter reward option for the duration the campaign.
