Aussie intimates label Nico is releasing its first leisurewear collection

WORDS BY ROSANNA WATTS

Organic, body-hugging goodness.

Aussie intimates label Nico has just released its debut leisurewear collection, featuring soft sustainable fabrics and comfort-focused designs. 

Nico launched in 2012 with its signature organic intimates range, so, according to founder Lisa Harvey, this new capsule collection, “Is a bit of a natural progression, given that we know what we’re doing when it comes to comfy things.” 

Sporting an array of both natural and bright colours, the range includes high-waisted midi skirts, slip dresses, crew tees and flare pants. For the cooler days ahead, Nico has designed a high-neck zipper jumper, complete with chunky zips and drop shoulders, as well as recycled cotton socks and skivvies. 

All the garments are made with soft-organic cotton that’s certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard and the dyeing process is 100 per cent chemical-free and plant-based. 

Wedelia, a plant from the sunflower family, is used for the cactus green colourway, while the peach is a careful mix of turmeric and seashell lime. “It’s quite a technical feat, actually. A lot of brands do use natural dyes, but still have to use chemicals at some stage for fixing the colours and that kind of thing,” says Lucy.

The use of organic and natural materials not only means each garment clings beautifully to the body, but is also beneficial to those making the clothes, as the chemical or synthetic counterparts can be detrimental to workers’ health.
