A chance meeting. An elusive muse for a very important story. Whist waiting at JFK for a delayed flight back to London Elliot and James made light conversation with fellow passenger Cristina Azario who just happened to be a very eminent designer and who’s parents had founded the luxury heritage brand Nattier in the 1960’s. By the end of the trip Elliot & James were in possession of an archival book on Nattier. Very quickly they were both deeply in thrall to this delightful creative textile house.
They had also found the missing element of inspiration for the Devonshire Club and struck up a creative collaboration with Cristina.
A section of exquisite designs were then dramatically interpreted into a very twenty-first century statement of contemporary couture. Their impulsive, joyous use of colour became even more seductive when aligned to the precise judgement of March & White.
