Nouvelle’s fabric and styling is a reflection of Palm Beach itself, rooted in casual sophistication. Notably elegant yet timeless, Nouvelle’s silhouettes embody the luxury resort lifestyle that is so quintessentially Palm Beach. What began as a love for resort design and style has now made Nouvelle the authority in silk fabrication and fashion.
Our styles are renowned for their perfect fit – equally suited for an elegant day or evening occasion. Whether dressing for a sophisticated event, business casual meeting or evening affair, our styles complement a graceful yet understated lifestyle.
Nouvelle’s 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. Sensual and feather-light to the touch, our Silk95Five fabric simply radiates in an assortment of natural and vibrant colors, custom dyed for each season.
Founder and designer Joanne Snodgrass exclaims, “We’re all about color!” Nouvelle Palm Beach is known for creating timeless styles in an assortment of neutral and gem-toned hues, which simply radiate in our stretch-silk fabric. Every collection features a new introduction of vibrant color ways, complementing the season. Our classic colors: Nouvelle White, Nude, Noir, Midnight Blue, Silver Lining, Fonce and Faded Denim ground every collection.
Inspired by her sense of adventure, reflected in her world travels and entrepreneurial spirit, Joanne Snodgrass founded her first company in South Africa, shortly after graduating from University. Her innovative product development and colorful designs, still selling today, sparked her career in luxury design.
Joanne decided to make the US her home 16 years ago. Her sense of style and creativity was exemplified in her successful boutique, Via Pelle, in Dallas. She was honored by Fashion Group International (FGI) with the Rising Star Award, for retail in 2008. It was during this time that she started designing her own collections that developed into her line, Nouvelle Palm Beach, launched in 2013 after moving to Florida.
Nouvelle has evolved from a resort print collection in 100% silk (notably the black dahlia ponchos, drawstring pants and Portofino slip dresses) to a contemporary collection created in her trademarked washable stretch "Silk95Five" fabric. The focus is on shirts, tops, and pants in a myriad of colors, carefully curated to encapsulate the casual sophistication of a luxury lifestyle. Seasonal favorites are added, usually inspired by Joanne’s travels to Africa, Europe and beyond.
Nouvelle won the coveted 2018 Contemporary Designer of the Year at Phoenix Fashion Week which culminated in the line being featured in many TV shows.
Since the launch of Silk95Five, Nouvelle has expanded to over 300 of the finest boutiques stateside. With growing export opportunities Nouvelle is going to market in Canada, South Africa and France. “Creating Nouvelle melds my passion for fine silk, color and a casual sophisticated aesthetic. I am delighted how the brand is loved by so many great retailers”.
