Just as we thought we were ready for the onset of fall, Auralis quickly had us wishing for those sweltering summer days once again with its Spring/Summer 2011 Collection. With bursts of color as brilliant as a bowl of fresh summer fruit, Auralis’ line drew upon the spicy-yet-sweet charm of 1970s Puerto Rico and fused it with a modern spirit, made to wear. One of our favorite collections to debut during The GreenShows at New York Fashion Week, it was Auralis’ use of recycled hemp, organic cotton, soy jersey, and peace silk that really had us swooning. And for those who think that hemp and soy are the signals for something more sartorially unsavory, think again — this stunning line of cool, everyday pieces and elegant, cocktail-ready creations proves that the use of eco-friendly materials never comes at the cost of style.
