Spring – Summer ’23: sand between your toes, no sun in your eyes

Spring-Summer '23 campaign

Throughout her life and travels, Nathalie Vleeschouwer has always viewed the water and the coast as sources of relaxation and rejuvenation. Here, far from all obligations and crowds, away from the masses, in this friendly, local community setting where the clock just seems to tick that little bit slower, she is able to reconnect, both with nature and with herself. A place to savour, especially when accompanied by a suitcase brimming with beautiful garments to help you feel more comfortable in your own skin.

This escapist journey has been captured by photographer Tim Coppens, depicting this blend of casual and refined, tough and elegant, plain and exuberant, rugged and refined. With Nathalie Vleeschouwer, these extremes do not constitute contradictions, rather an honest reflection of Nathalie's persona, intertwined throughout the collection.

Feminine tailoring for dress-up parties

This season, Nathalie Vleeschouwer has gone all out, with rich fabrics that will give you that elegant, dressed-up look in no time. From long satin dresses and sumptuous blouses to two-piece suits, this collection is perfect for any party occasion. The shimmering jacquard fabrics are inspired by the botanical, from fine English floral motifs to exuberant wallpaper patterns.

What truly stands out is the collection's wide range of jackets. The well-known Wilfried blazer, with its classic oversized fit, is joined by short kimono-style jackets, long sleeveless vests and coats adorned with architectural detailing. Here, feminine tailoring takes pride of place, offering a wide choice for every figure and style.

HAND – The summer cotton capsule collection

Over past seasons, Nathalie Vleeschouwer has developed a tradition of offering a capsule collection alongside her main line. Each season, HAND releases a pure line that is distinctly casual, with a slightly bolder edge.

HAND SS23 is centred around a palette of four distinctive colours on a natural cotton-linen blend: flame, Bristol Blue, bottle green and dark henna. All the garments are piece-dyed, giving them a more natural, authentic look. This summer, simplicity is key: wear these garments tone-on-tone for that striking colour statement.

This capsule collection is more extensive than ever: cool kimonos, wind jackets, T-shirts, paper bag trousers, shorts, jumpsuits, Twiggy dresses, wide blouses, shirt dresses, and so much more.

Combinability with the main collection has also been well thought out, with the four colours also available within the knitwear range, while the self-designed prints are also a perfect match for the pieces in the HAND capsule collection.

Monogram prints & swimwear

The subtle monogram print introduced last season has been repeated, only in two new colours and used in a more versatile way. You will not only find these prints on the garments, but also on the bikinis and swimsuits, which are new to the collection as of this season. The bikini is a simple triangle model that is easy to adjust, while the swimsuit has a more pronounced character with its single, asymmetrical shoulder strap. Expected in stores by May '23.

Get the full look with sunglasses & sandals

The collection continues to expand, with this season also bringing with it two new lines to create that truly complete look.

In collaboration with Yuma Labs, Nathalie Vleeschouwer is launching her own range of sunglasses in three colours. These are real statement pieces, providing that perfect finishing touch to your outfit, ones that will also come in handy after that one Sbagliato cocktail too many. La vie en rose in lilac, striking in white, timeless in tortoise.  Yuma Labs stands for optics quality, becoming the partner of choice due to their 100% commitment to sustainability and working with recycled materials.

In addition to the sunglasses, the brand now boasts its own line of sandals. This season, Nathalie Vleeschouwer has developed her first range of footwear, incorporating the same DNA behind her garments: visible style, with a focus on comfort.

The colours are tailored to the clothing collection, saving you that long search for the right match. In terms of style, you will find both sturdier statement sandals with multi-coloured round straps, subtly knotted pieces and plain and simple passe-partout sandals that you can combine to your heart’s content.

Without exception, all the sandals have a comfortable, soft-cushioned innersole, meaning your feet will never get tired again as you make the most of those summer months.


Nathalie Vleeschouwer's SS23 collection will be available online, in the brand stores and from multi-brand retailers from 26 January.
