The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide for Him
The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide for Her
Flirty, light eco-fashion
When self-taught designer Jada-lee Watson started hawking her handmade wares at Saltspring Island’s weekly market, she used the experience as a litmus test for figuring out what fellow fashionistas were looking for when it came to fit and fabrics.
“I definitely design with the body in mind,” says Watson, who later launched Nixxi, a line of clothing made from natural and renewable fibres. “I try to design clothing that works for many different women and different lifestyles.”
The curve-flattering clothes (knee-grazing knickers, sexy ruched tops and loose linen pants) are fashioned from bamboo, soy and linen – each blended with organic cotton.
Watson describes her summer line as “flirty and light, great for day and great for night,” and each mix-and-match piece has been designed to transcend the seasons, too. On beach-bound days the fringe wrap dress is a must-match with bikini and flip-flops.
For cocktail-sipping nights, it’s easily glammed up with an armful of bangles and a pair of wedges. Come fall, don some tights and tall boots, and top it off with Nixxi’s newest offerings: organic wool shawl cardigans and coats, which will be in store next season.
