Introducing our AW17 Collections... Cumulus and Provocateur April 05 2017, 0 Comments
Today we're excited to launch two brand new AW17 Collections, Cumulus and Provocateur. Shot by Eve Wilson and styled in collaboration with Beck Simon, we couldn’t be more thrilled with these collections, particularly on the eve of our 2nd birthday!
“Not all those who wander are lost.” – J.R.R. Tolkien
The inspiration behind Cumulus is a personal one that comes from our adventures to New Zealand, the land of the Long White Cloud and reconnecting with our families over there. Kiwi blood runs through all three of us so we all feel a personal connection to the land, the people and the traditions.

Our Cumulus Collection draws inspiration from the lush green pastures and rolling hills, untamed and wild in their beauty, towering sand dunes and rugged coastlines for as far as the eye can see. Equally tranquil and serene and broody and masculine, our carefully curated Cumulus Collection of Full Room Packs, Accessory Packs, artwork, rugs, lighting, accessories and of course layers upon layers of skins, throws and cushions make this the perfect reason to stay indoors this winter.
Our paint partner Haymes Paints, again provided us the perfect backdrop to layer our landscape inspired palette of green grass, muted blues and greys, charcoals and sandy beige leathers. On our walls we used 'Chimney Ash' and 'Charcoal Grey' by Haymes.

As always, we start a new collection with artwork and for Cumulus we couldn’t go past the ethereal and captivating landscape photography of NJ favourite Georgina Skinner. For the British native now based on a New Zealand dairy farm, Georgina has the ability to transport a viewer from the daily grind to the many far flung places she snaps.
This collection is also all about luscious greenery! Create a green wall at home with our new range of pot planters and baskets.
“Who said nights were for sleep?” – Marilyn Monroe
Provocateur is for the master of her (or his) own domain. Provocative and sultry, underpinned by bold, luscious lips, red wine tones, a hint of rouge and sleek, sophisticated lines. The allure of Provocateur will have the wallflowers running for cover.

This one is all about them lips! We discovered the talented 19 year old photographer, Nastia on Instagram and as soon as we did we knew we had to curate a collection around those lips!
Nastia Cloutier-Ignatiev, based in Montreal, Quebec, knows how to capture a provocative tone with her instantly iconic Lips series, exclusive in Australia to Nathan + Jac. It's hard to believe the Canadian-based photographer is still only in her teens, with an already impressive list of collaborations and credentials to her name.

Nastia's work primarily concentrates on close up portraiture. From her Instagram bio "Lips and eyes dictate the way I capture the instant", her painted red pouts, open mouths and tongues create a feature in any interior and were without a doubt the focal point of our sultry AW17 collection, Provocateur. We have four striking Lip Prints available, 'Glossy', 'Bite', 'Lollipop' and 'Grills'.
The palette of Provocateur is as bold and unapologetic as the babe who lives here. ‘Burnt Siena’ by Haymes Paint on our bedroom walls create a moody marsala base, while accents of peach, dusty blush, sleek black leather and chic cool grey add polish and sophistication. On our living room walls we used 'Charcoal Grey' by Haymes.
NEW BY NATHAN + JAC

Of course, complimentary to artwork as the foundation of each collection is our range of NJ Cushions! The palette and textures we use in each new range set the tone for the whole collection.
