The eco-shop celebrates Seattle (okay, Vashon Island) designer Adrienne Antonson and a new in-house line on March 9.
Where: NuBe Green on Capitol Hill
What: The All-American lifestyle store in the Oddfellows Building celebrates the new spring collection from the in-house all-Seattle line, NuBe Seattle. Artist Adrienne Antonson designs on Vashon Island with fabrics made from locally grown fibers as well as vintage or otherwise repurposed materials. The pieces are hand-sewn in the area — hence (let’s just get this out of the way), the price tags.
And while the ikat poncho and felted wool vest shown here, from the collection that’s available online and in person at the trunk show and launch party next week, do convey a very Seattle (circa 1972, circa 1986, circa now) artful islander vibe, they’d also fit beautifully into a closet filled with Dries Van Noten, Maria Cornejo, and similar lines. Which, now that I think about it, is another way of saying I’d like them in mine.
When: Wednesday, March 9 from 6 to 8. Local wines and cheeses will be served.
