I've been craving a moto jacket, but most leather jackets are just too stiff for what I desire. Stella Carakasi reached out and asked if I'd like to try a piece from their collection and I was immediately drawn to the Discover Jacket. Made of a water resistant blend of cotton and metal, this fabric is soft enough to flatter my curves yet structured enough to be a proper jacket. With a cool metallic finish and black metal accents, this is a jacket that can work for the office or be a relaxed topper for the weekend.
Stella Carakasi is a California-based designer who creates affordable luxury fashion while making a positive impact on local and global communities through her design, commerce, and sponsorship. Focusing on eco-friendly materials and sustainable manufacturing methods, the brand comes in sizes XS (2-4) through XL (16) and from what I have tried, I find the sizing to be generous. I know many of you have been looking for sustainable fashion brands that go past a size 10; so far I am impressed by Stella Carakasi and look forward to trying more of the collection and sharing it with you!
