I dig it when sustainable fashion comes up with goods to not only compete with but put non-sustainable brands to the design test.
Nixxi's' Spring/Summer 2011 collection is everything it should be; sustainable, classic, sexy, modern and fun.
Nixxi has described their aesthetic as, "fusing contrasts: structural lines with casually draped silhouettes; soft knits with textured wovens; simple refined classics with edgy contemporary cuts. Designs that are versatile and can be easily individualized by the wearer's own personal style. With an emphasis on great fit and high quality sustainable fabrics and production methods, the line is made in Vancouver, BC."
Each season fabric textures play a major role in their inspiration. Throughout the line woven and knits are made from organic cotton, hemp, bamboo, soy, lyocell, organic wool, silk, and linen.
Nixxi tries to make the best choices that create for the least amount of impact on our planet. Nixxi's fabrics come from fibers grown without the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, or from fast-growing renewable crops. Nixxi also chooses to work with a local production house that employs fair wages and a comfortable working environment for their employees, thus sustaining a positive working relationship which also results in a more quality finished, longer-lasting garment.
