Lina Rennell's Spring/Summer 2009 collection, "Big Sur Meets Helsinki," explores the relationship between Mother Nature and her daughter—we humans, presumably, though in our case it would probably be estranged daughter.

For her seaside excursion of hand-silk-screened organic cotton and hemp-linen textiles, which contrast turquoise, gray, and gold hues, the designer drew inspiration from washed-up ocean detritus, driftwood, and barnacles. The result is a Scandinavian-beach-house aesthetic that is at once rustic and modern.Point of interest: All of Rennell's clothing are ethically made in Northern California.
