Sun Protection by Canopy New York

With Summer right around the corner, I have been in search of stylish sun protective clothing but haven't had much success (it would be much easier then reapplying sunblock every half hour!). Luckily, a friend and former colleague of mine, Erica Birmingham and her business parter Lewis Remele, are in the process of developing a new fashion company, Canopy New York, and have sun protection in mind. The company is starting out with a contemporary apparel line that features sun protective fabrics. Canopy New York's garments block 98% of UV rays, protecting skin from sun damage. The brand is made in the USA, with fabrics made in California from American-grown cotton and clothes produced in the Garment District in New York City.

A few items from the initial line can be seen in the images below. For more information visit the company's Kickstarter campaign here. All of these items will be available for pre-sale through June 2nd.
