Nothing compares to the touch of silk on the skin...
Our silk and styling is a reflection of Palm Beach itself, rooted in casual sophistication. Notably elegant, yet timeless, our silhouettes embody the luxury resort lifestyle that is so quintessentially Palm Beach. What began as a love for design and style has now made Nouvelle the authority in silk fabrication and fashion.
Our stretch Silk95Five fabric was developed exclusively for the brand. It blends just a touch of elastin with pure silk for the ultimate in wear-ability and wash-ability. The fabric was specifically developed to combat the problems associated with 100% silk: to reduce wrinkling while being easy to wear, wash and care for.
Our silk fabric delivers just the right amount of warmth during cool nights, while keeping the skin cool in warmer, daytime temperatures. The breathability of our fabric is another especially notable feature, helping our silk styles stand out from other, more prohibitive silk manufacturers.
Sensual and feather-light to the touch, our Silk95Five fabric simply radiates in an assortment of natural and vibrant colours, custom dyed for each season.
