The Nomad Collection
Naomi Watts steps into her first designer role with NOMAD; the capsule collection embodying the adventure of summer, bringing a sense of freedom and exploration inspired by her global travels.

 

SC: What did you enjoy most about the designing process for Nomad?

NW: I was excited to be asked to be creatively involved in this collection after working with Sportscraft as a Brand Ambassador for the last couple of years. I love fashion, so working with Sportscraft at this level was a new adventure for me and I loved the creative process. I enjoyed thinking about different fabrics, shapes and the details for this collection, like the embroidery.

SC: What is your favourite piece in the collection?

NW: I love the white linen dress, so comfortable and effortless and a must-have for any summer wardrobe. The fabric is perfect for an Australian summer and it was designed with this in mind.

          SC: Tell us about your inspiration behind the collection?

 

NW: It’s really inspired by summer. I love white as it’s usually a sign that summer is here. It works well on beach days and is just as stylish at night for parties. I chose fabrics like silk and linen because they keep you cool on long summer days. I have also focused on easy pieces that travel well and don't need much accessorising or styling as summer is often the perfect time to travel.

SC: What does the festive season mean to you and your family?

NW: It's one of those times that everyone in our family moves mountains to try and be together in the one place. Which means lots of cousin time for the kids! Its lots of fun.

SC What tips do you have for the ultimate travel wardrobe?

NW: Pack pieces that can be mixed and matched so you can change looks from day to night with minimal pieces. The cross body bag works extremely well for long flights and long walks, and keeps your hands free for everything else you have to tackle! The slides are an easy sandal to put back with dresses or shorts so they are interchangeable for day and night. You never want to pack too many shoes – more room in the bag for shopping!

SC: What is your favourite summer outfit?

NW: For me, it’s a white bohemian dress with flat sandals, something with ease, a bit romantic.
