#AmaraLoves: Nathalie Trad

July 29, 2015

The fashion scene in the GCC is inspiring, there are many talented young men and women with ambitious visions that they bring to life in gorgeous ways. Nathalie Trad is one of those young visionaries. After attending prestigious institutions like ESMOD in Paris and Parsons in NYC, and working with Saint Laurent and Proenza Schoulier, Nathalie decided to launch her own accessories line. I have noticed her clutches on GCC socialites for years, and then international fashion stars like Olivia Palermo and Leandra Medine became fans and the rest is history.

I am a huge fan of statement clutches and interesting details, so Nathalie’s creations are like candy for me. The geometric designs, luxurious minerals and metallic finishes make for a winning combination.

#AmaraLoves: Balenciaga Papier Tote

July 1, 2015

The Balenciaga City bag (see here) has been a staple on the street style scene for what seems like decade. The City bag is iconic in its own right, with bold details and a instantly identifiable shape. The Papier tote is a sleek, more professional take on the City bag and I am in love with it.rosie-huntington-whitely balenciaga papier bag
I came across this bag a few months ago at my job and instantly fell in love with the buttery leather and simple details. Rosie Huntington Whiteley was spotted with the pale blue version of the Papier Tote earlier this week and that just piqued my interest in the bag further – especially the gorgeous array of pastel shades and exotic skins available. The mini version of the Papier is just TO DIE for but might not be as practical as the tote. I am all about the totes since I love to throw everything I own inside and just get going.
