Nathalie Valmary is the designer of the luxury leather goods brand Louise Carmen.
She likes travelling, inspirational encounters, and to push her limits by living unique experiences, like walking on a hot ember bed at more than 400°C or setting off on long-distance hiking paths and sleeping in a bivouac.
She fulfills her childhood dream by setting out to discover the world, through a one-year initiatory trip with her husband and their two daughters. It’s during this amazing adventure that she designs her ideal notebook.
Back to Paris, she collaborates with a prestigious Parisian workshop, to create her first collection. She chooses Louise Carmen as her brand name, the first name of the heroine of the novel she started writing during her trip.
concept stores, including Merci, then the luxurious department store Le Bon Marché, immediately notice her creations. Bloomingdale's gives her access to the American market, which projects the young made-in-France brand on the international stage. Globetrotters can find their Louise Carmen in Tokyo, New York, Dubai, and even Berlin.
