Founded in 2005, Dutch fashion brand Circle of Trust focuses on producing high-quality but affordable clothing, with a modus operandi rooted in sustainability and ethical responsibility. Despite being eager to help the environment, the brand doesn’t take itself too seriously, so expect to find chic but relaxed pieces suitable for everyday living.
The name Circle of Trust was inspired by the label's round knotted logo, which represents its core values in four areas. The first knot signifies the company’s responsibility to make informed choices based on experience and trust. The second and third knots reflect the brand’s consciousness and transparent design process, and the final knot ties everything together. The overall vision of Circle of Trust involves a focus on sustainability and trust, resulting in pieces produced with love. Denim is one of its areas of expertise, with its carefully crafted jeans designed for a frame-flattering fit. Try wearing some with a lace top and ballet flats for a casual weekend look. Dress up with statement jewellery or tone it down with your favourite chunky cardigan.
As well as its more polished pieces (see its boxy coats that would be perfect for work, and its elegant blazer jackets or sleek shirts that would be a dream match for a pair of leather leggings), Circle of Trust crafts the sort of clothes you’ll want to spend all of your days off in. Try teaming some of its casual skirts or slimline trousers with a slogan T-shirt and a pair of lace-up flats for an off-duty-model feel, or opt for one of its day dresses, worn with an oversized sweater, tights and some ankle boots for an alternative take on downtime outfits.
