Look at Nathalie Lété’s artwork long enough, and you’ll feel transported to a fantasyland with doll-like heroines, larger-than-life blooms, and lots of parlor cats. If her work looks familiar, it’s because her unique aesthetic has garnered her a cult following and attention from brands around the world. From the Gucci runway to home and decor collaborations with Anthropologie to a line of children’s clothing with H&M, the world can’t seem to get enough of Nathalie Lété and her colorful, signature style.
Though the Paris-based artist works across multiple mediums (ceramics, textiles, jewelry, toys, and books), her thematic, surreal paintings are what initially drew us to her. Whether she’s illustrating an enchanted forest filled with woodland creatures or a rose garden under the moonlight, Nathalie’s work has the perfect balance of charm and eccentricity. And that’s precisely why we’ve teamed up with her on our latest collaboration of invitations and cards.
Inspired by her childhood growing up in Paris with a Chinese father and German mother, Nathalie’s body of work draws connections to both Eastern and Western folk art. And her collection for Paperless Post is no exception. Her designs, centered around nostalgia and make-believe, bring pure yet sophisticated elements of her paintings to life. Appealing to kids and parents alike, the entire collection is perfect for any festive occasion from kids’ birthday parties to casual get-togethers.
Want to inject even more of Nathalie’s je ne sais quoi into your party? Pair her invitations with decorations and favors from her latest book, “Craft the Seasons: 100 Creations by Nathalie Lété.” Filled with 200 pages of her drawings, the book is packed with instructions for easy-to-make crafts you can use throughout the year.
