Nathalie Trad hosts an intimate dinner to launch her Autumn/Winter 15 collection in Dubai
An evening of geometry and gastronomy
Nathalie Trad hosted an intimate dinner in Dubai on Sunday to celebrate her Autumn/Winter 15 collection. Guests included fashionable friends and family of the award winning designer and the acclaimed stylist, photographer and blogger, Hanneli Mustaparta, was named guest of honour at the private soirée.
Hamdan Al Abri provided the soundtrack to the evening with a live performance that brought the JAMM Gallery venue to life. The Al Quoz art hub formed the appropriately artistic venue for the elegant dinner, which saw the geometric Cipher 1.61 collection of shell clutches spark lively conversation. Exhibited on differently sized plinths and stands, the clutch collection warranted its gallery backdrop. Taking its cues from designs as vast as the galaxy to nature's details as small as a natillus shell, geometric codes are central to the modern hand-crafted collection, which explores the properties and proportions of shapes both in the construction of the bag's forms and the pearlescent designs that have been applied to them.
Trad boasts a covetable list of celebrity admirers including; Sienna Miller, Olivia Palermo, Karolina Kurkova and Leandra Medine, and we predict that list will add some new names with the latest Cipher 1.61 collection. We'll be keeping our eye on red carpets from London to New York.
