Natalie is an Italian-Danish fashion and accessories designer, graduate of the Istituto Marangoni in Milan.

Her constant search for something new and different is a personal mark, highlighted by the creative experience in Istituto Marangoni.
The inspiration for the project originates from Tod's iconic Lion's logo. The figure of the lion is appreciated for its strength, elegance and iconic value.
The collection is composed by sustainable ready-to-wear pieces and accessories, inspired by “Out of Africa” movie scenes and color shades.
Every fabric and print is conceived to be 100% sustainable, with particular attention to packaging and shipping methods in order to reduce water consumption and Co2 emissions.
"I wanted to reinterpret the overcoat to develop and enhance its structure."
The style of the collection takes inspiration from safari clothing. The items follow the same lines in the choice of fabrics.
The project is composed by different coats, t-shirts and two pairs of shoes.
