PDX x SEOUL

This season we are proud to feature a collaborative capsule for spring/summer ’19 that features the first cooperative work between Nau’s design teams in Portland, Oregon, and Seoul, Korea. The Capsule Collection tastefully fuses the expressive and artistic Seoul street fashion genre with Nau’s versatile, urban performance styling. It features a variety of linen styles that suit Korea’s hot, humid summers while retaining anywhere—urban appeal, and outerwear that pays homage to Seoul’s use of experimental fabrics with a new coated linen. The result is East meets West collaboration that is a nod to the future of international, sustainable fashion.
