Eco clothing brand Nau, which ceased operations in May, will have a second chance at sustainable fashion. With the financial backing of Horny Toad, a California brand of outdoor lifestyle clothing, Nau's "Patagonia-meets-Prada" style might just regain enough momentum to resume plans for a New York store. After all, they closed up shop only two weeks after opening their Beverly Hills address. Their last collection can still be had online until July 30, at greatly slashed prices but diminished selection. [Treehugger; photo credit]
