In the overly crowded world of fast fashion, it takes a lot for a brand to break through and grab our attention — and even more for us to recommend it to readers. So, consider the latest collection from Project Unfollow one of those select sleeper hits.
This innovative new luxury-meets-leisure line hails from Melbourne, Australia, an epicenter of beachy cool girl vibes. With sales exploding around the world, they recently moved operations to Manhattan, and now the Insta-worthy items are easier to snag than ever before.
Why are we so obsessed? First, the feel. Although these outfits look ready for date night or the office, they are as buttery soft as your favorite yoga pants.
Second, Project Unfollow is perfect for building the kind of capsule wardrobe you're seeing all over your FYP. The debut collection is made to be interchangeable, ensuring that each piece becomes a core part of your wardrobe that can take you from the bar to a long-haul flight.
“It is not something that you hang up and forget about, or just wear once,” designer Dijana Kocevic told OK!. “We are making a commitment to sustainability by disrupting the fast fashion model, and making our pieces collectibles rather than fast fashion throwaways."
Indeed, the label is committed to sustainability with an overarching mission to end the wasteful fast fashion culture through its offering of desirable yet affordable, investment-worthy pieces. But don’t just take our word for it. Take a look:
Made from a thick, silky-soft cotton, this dress is luxe enough for a special dinner out, but comfortable enough for cuddling on the couch. The high neck and statement loop buttons add extra drama but also make it easier to pull the dress on and off without messing up your hair or makeup.
Fabric was the top priority when dreaming up the perfect sweatshirt, according to the fashion house. The Lo does not lose its shape or sag over time. Made from the softest, heaviest cotton and finished off with a drawstring waist, it allows you to choose how cropped or covered you want to be depending on your mood, the occasion, or the pieces you layer with it.
Pair the Lo sweater with the Lo Leggings for the ultimate elevated loungewear look. Designer Kocevic says she searched high and low for the most comfortable, flattering and softest cotton imaginable, and these leggings are it. Bonus: They pass the squat test.
