Nau Takes NYC By Bike

Photo: Lavish Livez Instagram

To commemorate bike month, we took a small group of friends on a curated bike tour from Manhattan to Brooklyn. Each stop along the way brought to life our unique perspective on sustainability, craftsmanship and the modern, mobile lifestyle. Here’s a quick glimpse into our pedal-perfect day.

Getting Oufitted
We started at HUB in the West Village where we were each fit with our custom Dutch-inspired Brooklyn Cruisers. While the week’s sunny weather had taken a turn, it only added to the spirit of the tour. Most of us simply put on an extra layer with a Dose Jacket or Motil Trench, and we were on our way.

Winter, Instagrammed

Posted by leighann | February 22nd, 2012 | Filed under Nau Events


This morning’s meeting consisted of a cup of stumptown, a voting ballot and a wall plastered with instagrams (thanks @connecsean for the captured moment). Our task? To pick the winners of our first #nauwinter instagram contest. (We say first, because there’s a good chance we could do this again.) First of all, thanks to all who entered. It was a tough decision, but we ultimately chose three of our favorites. Check out the winners below as well as all of the entries at #nauwinter. And for future instagram contests as well as a behind-the-scenes look at who we are, what we do and what inspires us, follow us @nauclothing.

And now for the winners…

Under Perfect Conditions: The New Spring Line

Posted by Peter | February 7th, 2012 | Filed under Design, Nau Events, Who We Are


We spent a lot of yesterdays in the studio and in the natural world creating images with our friends to unveil the SPRING 2012 season. It all started at the Oregon Coast—rugged, dynamic, textural. The conditions were perfect: sunny, foggy, and magical with great surf, perfect light, friends, and, of course, the lens.

Mornings started early (at the crack of first light). Six a.m. on day one followed by 7:30 a.m. on day two and three (once we got a hold of what the light would bring). The days were packed with back-to-back locations from beachside to coast range and staged to set the perfect backdrop for our new styles. The evenings were spent reviewing the day’s shots and sharing great homemade food, conversation, local wine and local whiskey (for those who chose to indulge).

In the studio shoot we wanted to bring to life the simple, dynamic presence of each style.

We used part of the same crew from the beach shoot plus Nathan and Mackenzie, our other Nau extended family members. A beautiful contrast to the beach shoot, we captured the simple forms of each style and their graceful presence.

Hope you enjoy the fruits of our efforts.

You can see the behind-the-scenes takes from these shoots here.
