BLUE CANOE: S/S 2010 ECO WEAR-STYLISH SEPARATES FOR WORK/PLAY
OUTDOOR RETAILER MARKET –SLC, UTAH
Words, Images-Judith Ecochard
We discovered the terrific organic cotton based collection Blue Canoe- last January at OR… and really felt that this was a label we could live in 24/7.
There are separates for travel and work (the Studio Line) including our fav-the silky Bamboo wrap dress, underwear and loungewear (the Intimates) that’s supportive, modern, and comfy, and fashionable active wear (the Energy Line) that moveably functions.
Spring highlights that we caught a sneak of-- include separates made from a super soft, light-weight special blend of Bamboo Cotton Lycra…
There are also a group of fun tees made from the aforementioned fabrics (available May 2010). New screen prints for the BC tees were a work in progress at the show…but we saw fabric samples that were lovely.
The best sellers- including the sexy Twist and Sling Back tops- are joined by a Fan tank and new shades for the Energy Tank-with a full bra inside and straps that cross in back.
There’s an adorable double breast vest and new- easy to wear shorts that “hit below the bulge” too.
