A Collection that takes inspiration from Mother Nature…
Jenine Cotrice Addison knows that nature’s not just pretty; it can be pretty intriguing, too. Founded in 2000, the Atlanta-based studio, THE COTRICE COLLECTION, takes inspiration from Mother Nature, from paper or plastic to shells and other bizarre materials.
What interests her is what interests most with vision: odd, even playful prints and bold colors hidden in nature. The line is inspired by all things earthly, with a logo patterned of intertwining leaves, enveloped within a globe that protects its contents. With a full spectrum of men, women, and accessories, we can easily please. The silhouettes are flattering, never contrived. Already a favorite for the subtle construction and impeccable drape, the label is positioned to shine.
THE COTRICE COLLECTION made its first appearance with UPSCALE magazine and Bright House Advertising Agency in 2004 and was later discovered by Brooklyn Fashion Weekend in 2006. This fresh company birthed their accessories line when an Urban Outfitters buyer spotted COTRICE in New York’s Accessories the Show, ordering 50 pieces for the FREE PEOPLE catalog.
Actress/star Regina King has been sited wearing the wooden adornments.
Soon, cited by celebrity makeup artist, Vanessa Evelyn, the collection was featured back to back in SHE Caribbean Magazine and other publications soon followed. This savvy designer will surely continue to turn heads whether wardrobe building or styling your next video, Cotrice is guaranteed to win.
Cotrice has created Paper Couture, crafty one-of-a-kind dresses donated for charity events and viewed in gallery showcases. The paper crazed-artist-meets-award-show-chic designs are not for the timid—only the adventurous need apply. For those who dare to wear, we advise that one keep an umbrella handy, getting caught in the rain could be risky. For those who are less daring, rest assured, the ready-to-wear collection meets you at the gate.
