Liz Nehdi designs offer a spectacular expression of bold, invigorating colours, hypnotic patterns and gestural, painterly prints that are layered with meaning. These are complemented by the finest craftsmanship and luxurious textiles to create playful, distinctive and soulful accessories with an artistic heritage. Our brand aims to introduce a way of life that celebrates fun, creative expression, optimism, and the beautiful complexities of the global village in which we all live. Liz Nehdi Studio was founded in 2014 by Liz & Karim Morgan Nehdi.

The inaugural Spring/Summer 2015 collection of scarves and pocket squares draws from Liz’s inspirations as a painter, interpreting and distilling creative traditions from around the globe – from abstract expressionism, art naïf and aboriginal dot paintings to graffiti, Berber patterns, and psychedelia.

We are accepting wholesale orders for Spring/Summer 2015 through 14 November 2014. Please email liz@liznehdi.com for more information.

In praise of the style mavericks

Liz Nehdi

Iris Apfel

Iris Apfel

Heaps of glowing reviews are being doled out for "Iris", the late Albert Maysles' last film. The documentary follows 93 year-old Iris Apfel, an interior designer and fashion influencer whose age has not diminished her productivity, having most recently appeared in ad campaigns for Kate Spade and Alexis Bittar.  Apfel's wit, joie de vivre, and style chutzpah make this a can't-miss film for the LNS team. 

Iris exemplifies so much of what we admire about individuals who embrace his or her own unique personality through fashion and design.  Below are just a few of our favorite fashion mavericks, who perhaps will encourage you to be yourself, whoever that may be. (Because biographies are written about trailblazers—never those who follow the heavily trafficked path.)
