Nicole Bridger, Canadian Sustainable Designer

nicole_bridger-000863Getting her “street cred” for her signature loose and casual cuts from her beginnings at Oquoquo; Bridger goes back to her design roots.

From oversized layering pieces to fitted cardigans and billowy dresses; the collection was stripped down much like its 80s grunge inspiration to bare modern and simplistic sustainable styles.

This season the statement is in her easy going casual cool dresses but with an updated darker edge for fall.  The Today Tunic; a day dress with slouchy pockets and a menswear inspired tailored sleeve, is the perfect take on luxe athletic for fall. The silhouette is cinched by a drawstring waistline and comes in navy, sage, and black and it’s also produced in organic supima cotton woven in Portugal.

Simple pieces make layering easy for the fall season, from warm wool modern cardigans and vests to casual organic tees and smart button down blouses, the fall wardrobe is paired down to cool modern classics.

If you invest in one oversized piece, make it the Protection Cardigan; a slouchy style in supremely soft Peruvian alpaca wool dusted in black, cream, or charcoal colors. Another must have: The Courage Cardigan in organic wool with a billowed sleeve. The designer takes sustainable fashion to the next level by promoting the humane treatment of sheep in the production of the line’s organic wool.

Bridger continues to elevate the fashion world by finding beauty all around us and by using pure elements found in nature. The beautiful, soft to the touch fabrics and extensive focus on fluidity and draping make this season’s styles catch our collective attention. Designer Nicole Bridger says, “Every season I get my inspiration from life lessons that I am learning at the time. When I started designing this season my husband and I were newly pregnant and looking at how to restructure our lives in order to prepare for the new addition to our family. Becoming pregnant I was able to quickly and easily decide what was positive in my life and what I could let go of. I was able to focus myself, my business, my relationships, and my home all in preparation for our baby. It was all about putting things into perspective.”
