Its hard for words to describe how in awe I am of Nathalie Trad clutches. I think her designs are some of the most unique on the planet with such an intense mix of textures, patterns, structures and general amazingness. Trad was born in Lebanon, raised in Dubai and has lived in Paris and New York, studied at Esmod and Parson’s, and I can imagine that such a rich and diverse cultural background has without doubt fostered her extreme talent. Fans include Olivia Palermo, Whitney Port and Amber Le Bon. She takes inspiration from nature and art history which explains the versatility of her creations. Her philosophy is to ‘smell with your eyes, hear with your nose, see with your ears and taste with your hands’. Her bags can definitely excite the imagination and take you to a dream world where you engage all the senses. They are full of surprise and mystery in addition to being simply stunning.
