Toronto-based Nlaka’pamux designer Warren Steven Scott has created a name for himself creating acrylic earrings and jewellery pieces — but on September 20, the creative will introduce womenswear clothing and fine artwork to the lineup of his namesake label. The new vibrantly-coloured capsule is titled Cedar in Sec-he Sky and is inspired by traditional cedar weaving techniques and woven clothing of the Pacific Northwest. Traditional processes are reimagined into textured focal points, which give dimension and shape to full, roomy silhouettes.
“Wear it for yourself, a dinner party, or your grocery shopping, or just to feel good,” Scott says in a press release. With longevity and versatility at the heart of his design process, you can re-style these pieces over and over again. Along with this launch, Scott will release nine new styles of earrings.
