Haven’t you heard? White is the new black. To help you embrace the new neutral—and show you that it’s anything but vanilla—we’ve conspired with Nixxi to give away a bleach-white Cropped Moto jacket from the Canadian label’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection. Bolstered by crisp linen, an oversize collar, and an asymmetric zip-front, the lightweight topper is primed for brisk summer nights (and chilly morning afters). And if perchance you’re not ready to leave the dark side just yet, this offer is good for a version in black, as well. Enter now to win!


1. SIGN UP FOR THE ECOUTERRE NEWSLETTER. (This is important because we’ll be announcing our winner there.)

2. LEAVE A COMMENT. Although it doesn’t hurt to get fancy, we’ll be picking a winner at random.

We’ll announce the winner in our newsletter on Wednesday, May 25. The deadline to enter is 12 midnight ET on Tuesday, May 24, so ENTER NOW for a chance to win!


Nixxi’s aesthetic is fusing contrasts: structural lines with casually draped silhouettes, soft knits with textured wovens, simple refined classics with edgy contemporary cuts. Designs that are versatile and can be easily individualized by the wearer’s own personal style. With an emphasis on great fit and high quality sustainable fabrics and production methods, the line is made in Vancouver, BC.

Fabric textures play a major role in the inspiration for each season. Knits and wovens made from organic cotton, hemp, bamboo, soy, lyocell, organic wool, silk, and linen are featured throughout line. It also works with a local production house that employs fair wages and a comfortable working environment for their employees, thus sustaining a positive working relationship which also results in a higher-quality, longer-lasting garment.

+ Nixxi

    Thanks a million to Ecouterre and Nixxi for organizing this giveaway!

    Spring is here and in Chicago you never know when you will need a jacket. It’s my kind of town!

    Wow! What a super cool jacket. Looks awesome! Thanks!

  21. DLori27 says:

    I have always loved the crisp clean look of a pure white jacket. But what makes this jacket so unique is the length and style. It can be worn all year round in warmer climates because it could almost pass for a winter white look. It is classy enough to wear with a long skirt for work, is casual enough to be worn to the beach on a chilly summer night with either shorts or jeans and FANTABULOUS enough to be worn for a night on the town. A gorgeous white jacket like this will definitely draw a lot of positive attention, that is of course unless you drooled a little spaghetti sauce on the front of it while eating dinner in a restaurant. This really is a beautiful jacket and I think it would look lovely with just about anything you chose to wear it with. It’s versatility is also what makes it a true hit. I love it’s texture and it appears to be incredibly soft and comfortable. If I was lucky enough to win this gem, I don’t know if I would ever take it off.

  25. thevicagirl says:

    My color is typically black with a few stand out white pieces, this would be the center of my wardrobe collection. Love it, the asymmetry is something I have admired for awhile now.

  26. ashleygv says:

    It’s still cold where I am, so I could still use a nice jacket to keep warm in while looking hot! :D

  27. kmom says:

    It is such a relief and an excitement to see beautifully crafted, modern, and sleek fashions that are ethically conscience. I want this jacket! San Francisco, CA is ready for Nixxi and so am I! Mark Twain said the coldest winter is a summer in SF. This rockin’ jacket would be perfect to layer with for the upcoming season while staying on point with the rest of this hemisphere’s summer trend.

  58. chichijunk (@@chichijunk) says:

    White IS the new black!! What a cute jacket and a nice change from the black that has been dominating the scene! It takes a strong person to wear white and that jacket really makes a statement! Thanks for the chance to change my look!

  59. homeagain (@homeagainblog) says:

    This chic little coat is the perfect summer substitute for the usual black leather motorcycle jacket. Crisp white linen with a touch of edge should be an essential for every cute summer outfit.

  60. Jamie says:

    That jacket looks perfect in so many ways – Who’d a thought linen could be so chic? But…I dunno about wearing those shorts on ANY kind of bike, unless you wanna get an earful of cat-calls!

  61. laura0413 (@lj0413) says:

    I love this! I’d probably even wear it to bed- it looks that comfortable!

  62. a22 says:

    cant wait to try this out! the jacket looks great.

  63. janice says:

    Eco-friendly, chic, and perfect for the brisk spring weather.
    <3 it!

  64. alexrg says:

    I love Nixxi’s sustainable style – makes me proud to be Canadian! I’ve been craving the black version of this jacket for a while now, but the white version is beautiful!

  65. twinturbo says:

    I’m a subscriber already!

    That is an absolutely gorgeous jacket. I only own one leather jacket and that is a black one, so it would brighten up my life – and outfits – if I had a light colored as well :)

  66. dumbo30 says:

    Ou, I hope I get picked. Been looking for a jacket like this. $144 is a little pricey though for a jacket made of linen.
