Nathalie Trad, the designer behind her eponymous line of clutches, is something of a wanderlust. Each year, she travels to explore new lands and seas in search of escape and inspiration for her coming collections. This summer, she traveled to Spain. She soaked in the sun on the Balearic Islands of Ibiza and Formentera, explored Gaudí’s organic, mosaic architecture at the Park Güell in Barcelona, and hiked through the mountains of Asturias.

The first stop is Madrid and the Museo Del Prado.
Art nouveau at its finest. Absolutely love coming across these gems while walking around Madrid.
"Love what you do," on the streets of Madrid. I make clutches, Madrid, I truly do love what I do.
Onwards to the island of Formentera. This truly is the best feeling.

"The wind awakens, living is a must." Wisdom brought to you by the streets of Ibiza.
Discovering little alleyways through secret doors.
Look up. Always look up.
Farm to table at La Granja, Ibiza, a peaceful gem on the island.
Our daily Spanish meal, every single day.
Hello, Barcelona. Gaudí, you are pure genius!
Next stop, San Sebastian, La Concha Bay.
Driving from San Sebastian to Asturias via Bilbao and I could never ask for a better road-trip buddy.
The plan is to spend the entire day walking through nature, hiking around the Picos de Europa in Asturias. Notice, I am never not clutched!
Asturias, I am in awe of you and your breathtaking views.
Time to go, but one last stop at the Asturias beaches before heading back to Dubai’s summer.
