Weeks of creation, call times to chase the right moment, and coordinating for just the best day to come in the UK and to show you our new designs! Want to know what went on at the BARE Fashion in London? Here's a mini reportage behind the scenes of our 1st visit in the Square Mile. The BLANLAC team shares with you its favorites of the rest of summer: little pleasures, books, exhibition, music ... Do you wish to have a break with us?
So inspiring! This is BARE : « Because Alternatives Really Exist »…and this was where it was all. Held at the Truman Brewery in London, this event is the UK's only 100% vegan fashion show where you can shop and discover lots of new vegan brands for clothes, shoes, bags, skin care, makeup and more.
We are so pleased the fashion world is catching up !
A real catwalk
The phenomenal fashion stylist Rebekah Roy and her team curated all of the outfits on the wonderful catwalk show. We thank her for including our wonderful pair of Gloriosa in the catwalk, and worn by the amazing model Angelique Leah.

We heard a really interesting vegan fashion panel talk from our lovely friend Marta Canga, Sascha Camilli, Kay Lovell, Chloé Tesla and Nicole (Vegan Beauty Girl) discussing all things cruelty-free, sustainable fashion and beauty. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experiences with us!
Unexpected and wonderful encounters
It was so great to connect and to discover so many incredible vegan brands. We were in good company with other great brands such as STORY81, Jakelle studios, Artisara, Fabrikk, Culthread, Washala, Mahla clothing, Honest department and Votch.
We also make more vegan friends and met so many lovely people! We had chats, exchanged stories, met the lovely Osier team, and talked about vegan fashion of course. It was the opportunity for us to show a part of the new collection...including some designs from the men collection!!!
Loved hearing all your feedback and excitement for our next collection !
This was last Saturday and we were so honoured to be part of it !

C’era una volta…flowers !
Belladone, Galatella, Gloriosa, Dahlia all these pretty names we gave to our shoes are known as being flowers.
Why did we make this choice?
It is a dive into vibrant colors, to lights, to natural areas. We are paying tribute to large flowered spaces in which Nature is the only Queen. Unfortunately, today more than ever they are becoming more than degraded and rare.
BLANLAC reveals a pictorial universe and its fashion visions in a poetic way…it is our way to giving back to the Nature.
Concretely, our Botanica sandals are made from 100% organic cotton, which is less polluting to the environment because it requires little water and uses no GMO seeds or chemicals. Soils are preserved and ecosystems are respected.
