      ACCESS + STYLE + COMMUNITY
      • With a growing number of independent brands on our website, there are loads of unique products to choose from. We've done a lot of hard work  finding the brands you'll love (and who love you back) and hand-picked their best pieces for you #yplifestyle.
      ETHICAL + SUSTAINABLE
      • We always encourage a transparent supply chain, fair trade, and eco-friendly packaging. We are also on #teamnatural. -- This means all our beauty products are free from chemicals and are made with natural or organic ingredients.
      SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESS
      • We support small, independent brands by ensuring the majority of sales go directly back to the designers themselves so that they can focus on creating amazing things!
      LIMITED EDITIONS
      • Some of our independent brands only create small quantities of their products, and create exclusive collections just for us meaning you'll have chances to be one of just a handful of people in the world owning certain  pieces you buy from us.
      QUALITY FIRST
      • With a focus on quality rather than trends, we only sell products that  will stand the test of time so they can be worn or used season after season.
