    Proving that green fashion doesn't have to be gag-worthy, new S.F.-based label Amour Vert, which means "green love," en francais, is all about wares that are as stylish as they are sustainable. The eco and affordable line — the brainchild of Parisian native and S.F. import Linda Balti and her Stanford MBA partner Christoph Frehsee — is rolling out its first real statement-making collection for this holiday and the spring 2012 seasons.

And, if you like what you see, head over to amourvert.com, which is already hawking select pieces.
