Paola's favorite quote to describe the NAMU Lux Collections is: "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” by Leonardo da Vinci.
NAMU is a Korean word that means Tree - nature is a constant inspiration for our Collections, together with the streets of Bombay, London and Bali's lush nature. Asian inspirations are viewed through Paola’s Italian eyes to create a mix of both worlds.
The Collections are designed for the woman, who appreciates lasting, unique and effortlessly elegant pieces that will be worn by generation to come. The NAMU Lux woman loves the luxe of feel-good fabrics and statement prints. She is about understated pieces that can be worn barefoot at the beach and at a dinner party with friends.
Our Collections are made in Bali, the Island of the Gods and in holy and colorful towns in India…wear a NAMU Lux piece and feel transported to the warmth of these countries.
