Time for our weekly spin around the ecosphere, bringing you our small, edited collection of eco fashion highlights…
It’s more than just eye candy. Sustainable fashion designers Nixxi and Nicole Bridger caught our eye with their separate and distinct debut collections a little while back and we’re happy to see both fashion houses nominated for a Fashion Takes Action Sustainable Fashion Award. (Want to take part? Cast your vote.)
(above – Nixxi) Exuding alluring sexiness and enduring uber eco style, Nixxi is playful, fun and built to last. Create a quiet splash this season.
(above – L to R) Born and raised in Vancouver, BC, Nicole Bridger’s spring/summer 2010 line looks eco chic and totally comfy – some styles even works as maternity wear. A couple of personal faves – Today Tunic in a cool shade of Lake, with button and pocket accents ($241) and Comfort Dress made from bamboo, organic cotton and a touch of Spandex ($223) – available in black, fog or blue.
(above) Looking for a tasty handbag or bracelet? Hot off the press, Ecoist teamed with Frito-Lay to create a line made from obsolete or unusable snack packaging. Grab your new Cheetos, Sunflower, Tostitos, Scribbles or Lays’ Greenleaf bag…now if we could just avoid eating the junk that’s in those bags. Ranging from $22 – $138, depending on style; funky bracelets $12. – more @ ecoist.com.
