New Brand Spotlight: Fig Clothing

FIG® Clothing is a Canadian sportswear brand for active, urban, and elegant women who love to travel. The collection is inspired by adventure and practicality. It is designed for those in need of versatility. FIG's mission is to offer a sophisticated alternative to traditional travel wear, an alternative that showcases the womanly body and makes it possible to feel at ease in all sorts of situations: in an urban setting like Manhattan or in a Tanzanian safari.

With FIG, it is fast and easy to switch your style by simply changing from a sandal to a high heel shoe! FIG's COMMITMENT FIG clothes are developed and manufactured entirely in Canada. This business model allows the company to encourage the local workforce and limit travel related to the production and distribution of its clothes. It is not only a part of the DNA of the brand. It allows FIG to have better quality control and respond quickly to its clientele's needs. This commitment also encourages FIG to choose Canadian fabrics as well as organic fabrics whenever interesting options exist.

The SAFARI and CHALET collections are in fact great alternatives for eco-responsible clients! Why FIG? The FIG leaf symbolizes the invention of clothing, with Adam and Eve as original models. Since the company's mission is to keep things simple and down to the essentials, what better way is there to illustrate it than with a fig? In the language of choreography, fig. is short for figure (as in dancing figure, acrobatic figure). In other words, movement and action . . . things for which FIG is designed. Figure also evokes the silhouette, the shape of a woman. In this regard, FIG collections are designed to flatter and celebrate the female body.

Today, we’re highlighting four of our denim superstars that we think you (and your wardrobe) should get acquainted with this year:
