Maison Nathalie Blanc // 2022 Collection

Designer Nathalie Blanc unveils the first lines of her collection and invites us to delve into her childhood memories. 2022 will be marked by two new collections inspired on the 1960s.

In 2022, Nathalie Blanc highlights the modernity of the 60s by imagining a collection in two chapters. After this long period of uncertainty, those new arrivals resonate as a calling to boldness and excitement and bring back the energy from the 1960s.

This spring, the designer unveils the first chapter, an autobiographical journey around designs with #AGELESS shapes, associating Vintage with Trendy, breaking the standards, and working the material and #SPACE as a designer of the time. The designer has fun breaking codes and offers mixed models like the switchable cloakrooms of that time.

The acetate frames take up the controlled and vertiginous curves of the glasses of their first icons, our mothers, with such natural elegance.
Finally, discover CLARA, the flagship frame of the collection from the beginning of this new year at Nathalie Blanc Paris.

CLARA 655 SOL - TIGRE BEIGE _ BEIGE OPALESCENT FACE
CLARA 655 SOL - TIGRE BEIGE _ BEIGE OPALESCENT
CLARA 196 SOL - NOIR FACE

CLARA 656 SOL - TIGRE ROSE _ BORDEAUX FACE
CLARA 656 SOL - TIGRE ROSE _ BORDEAUX

This frame worked in a 10mm plate is a real challenge of sculpture combining thickness and deforcing technique. Clara uses a motto from the 1960s and states that “anything is possible” both in terms of colours and materials.

In a nutshell, we can say that this new collection is an ode to optimism and freedom.
