Last month, we were sad to learn that stylish, sustainable outdoorsy-fashion darling Nau was biting the dust. Turns out that goodbye for Nau was a good buy for Horny Toad Activewear, a Santa Barbara-based maker of “lifestyle apparel” that recently acquired the company. (Hee hee, they said horny!)

Mark Galbraith, head of product design for the new Nau, said in a June 24 press release, “We plan to re-open with a new Fall/Holiday 2008 collection that continues to reflect the design philosophy Nau’s customers have come to know and love — a balance of Beauty, Performance and Sustainability.”

The new line will launch August 1, but remaining items from Nau’s spring/summer line will continue to be on sale at reduced prices through July.
