Hometown Hero

Your efforts to join the locavore movement were curbed by the winter deluge, not to mention that glistening row of Moroccan clementines winking at you from the produce aisle.

Tide yourself over with locally raised clothing by J’aime Colette. The homegrown line just released its first collection for spring.

Started by Sidonie Pierce and Ciel Wendel, who met in a Cambridge kindergarten, the tiny, five-piece collection was conceptualized here in Boston and, with help from a local pattern maker and factory, created here, too.

Made with brightly colored silks and cottons, the pieces are pleated and feminine enough for a night out but sturdy enough to wear over jeans.

And that’s a movement you can get behind.


J’aime Colette trunk show, Sunday, 1-4 p.m., at History, 1693 Massachusetts Avenue, between Harvard and Porter Squares, Cambridge (617-868-5400). To see styles, go to jaimecolette.com.
