Industry Press Release



Boulder, CO (September 10, 2008) — Building on the success of its Fall/Winter fashion and sportswear sweaters and accessories, N_ve Designs is please to announce the introduction of its first-ever collection for Spring. N_ve has created a vibrant line of 100% Pima cotton, fine-gauge art knit sweaters, tops and skirts for women living the active lifestyle.

These comfortable lightweight knits are based on many of N_ve’s traditional designs, but with a fresh mix of color style. “There is nothing else out there that uses color, pattern and design the way N_ve does,” said Daphne Herrick, apparel buyer for Weekends in Boulder, CO, “That’s what makes them so unique and our customers recognize that in the brand.” Details like two-way zippers and contrasting overlock stitching provide the quality, function and style N_ve has become known for.

N_ve’s Spring Collection will be available February 1, 2009.
