 Mother Denim has done it again, joining forces with a social cause with a special capsule collection. This season’s collection aims to raise awareness and funds through gender neutral denim and separates. Here at ECCO, we are proud to carry a label that has so much going for it, besides being a great fit, super flattering and insanely comfortable, Mother has taken up numerous social causes, like their anti-bullying campaign from last year, Play Nice, in order to put their money where their mouth is.

Like your mother always said, you’ve got to stand up for what you believe in!


Mother Says:


“At MOTHER we believe in being a part of something greater than ourselves. In an effort to practice what we preach, we’ve teamed up with Self Evident Truths to raise funds for an issue close to us. #LoveYourOther is our gender-neutral capsule collection dedicated to the freedom of being who you are and the spirit of celebrating differences without judgement or labels. A portion of the proceeds from the collection will benefit Self Evident Truths and its work for LGBTQ+ visibility.”


“Self Evident Truths is an art project that strives to humanize a vast community through the simplicity of portraits, showing that we come in all shapes, sizes, races, and social strata.  Together we aim to have self truth and equal rights for all. You, me, and our others too.”



Summer Denim Trends

At ECCO in downtown Burlington, we believe that great style comes from being comfortable in your skin, and that starts with finding looks that work for your body and your lifestyle, that are easy to wear and make you feel fabulous. That being said, fashion trends are a fun way to breathe new life into a wardrobe, as long as you stick with styles that are wearable and flattering. Great denim is a cornerstone to any casual wardrobe.

Here are a few of our favorite denim trends for summer 2016:

Cropped, flared denim: a great alternative to a boyfriend jean for those who don’t want a super tight leg style. Equally cute with flip-flops or sneaker s and a tee, as it is dressed up with wedges and pretty top.



The Denim Mini Skirt:  either a pencil skirt or a-line, depending on your body, is great paired with a blouse and heels. It’s also a fun way to play with a denim-on-denim look!





Skinny Ankle Fray: a fun twist on a style basic, this ankle length jean can literally be cut to fit! Just snip off the bottom and let them fray naturally. They look cute with flats and sandals now, and with ankle boots in the fall!





Other trends we are loving this season are slouchy boyfriend fit shorts, light wash flares and distressed cropped skinnies. Visit the denim experts at ECCO for your new favorite pair of jeans. 81 Church Street, Burlington, VT 05401 802-860-2220. Follow us on facebook and Instagram @eccoclothes

Mother Denim at Ecco!

“Mother, a word as loaded with innuendo as it is unconditional love, goes against the grain; the brand pushes technological boudnaries when it come to that signature soft denim, and pushes boundaries when it comes to , for insance, naming silhouettes”

Unconditional love, as the customers and the owners of the company like to say. Tim Kaeding and Lela Becker found mother denim in 2010, their denim is known for their soft fabrics and ability to fit a various types of bodies. The company owners say they like to have fun with their brand, but take their company more seriously when it comes to staying modern and relevant in the fashion world.

In addition to its popular denim, Mother takes its company to the next level by involving themselves in a number of different campaigns. For example, their “Play Nice” campaign which helped raise awareness for anti bullying. They share anti bullying messages through social media outlets and offer a “Play Nice” t-shirt that donates twenty percent of its proceeds to anti-bullying.

Ecco is excited to have such a new wonderful brand in the store. Below are a couple of the companies styles.
