As if blessed by the wand of a green fairy godmother, Nau manages to take urban and outdoor apparel and make it as soft and sexy as it is practical. Based in Portland, Oregon, the sustainable clothier focuses on the “modern mobile life” with a season-round palette, fabulous performance features, and smart, really cute design. Oh, and non-fussy, eco-friendly, materials, to boot. These looks presented for spring/summer 2012 say it all.
Sustainability is the keystone to all Nau’s collections -- organic cottons, traceable wools, and recycled polyester are the basics from which they knit and weave the structure of the line.
With the spring/summer collection the company continues to pioneer new fabrics that reflect a commitment to sustainability and performance while maintaining a luxe aesthetic.
