Fashion Excess

When it comes to fairly traded organic summer wear, you can never have too much of a good thing. Superfluous Culture is a Canadian fast-fashion countermovement and just like the name suggests, this label has an all-encompassing philosophy about pairing life back to its basics. Superfluous founder Adam Taubert designs unisex garments and home accessories tailor-made for the simple life. Loose-fitting tops, bottoms and outerwear are constructed from organic cotton, bamboo, denim and twill and sweet flower pot covers are crafted from fabric leftovers. Eighty percent of the range is manufactured less than 10 kilometres from the Superfluous Atelier in Montreal, with a handful of products assembled a stone’s throw away in a village outside Quebec City. If you can see easy cuts and a mellow palette on your summer horizon, look no further for a breezy breath of fresh air.
