The collection is enriched by a new range of pastel colours, which joins the timeless black and burgundy.

In Lin and Xuan’s own words: “Nil Naux is a bag brand without an exciting story. The brand was born with the aim to make down-to-earth bags”. We talked about their collection with the two Chinese designers based in Milano. While working as a project manager for a Chinese company, Xuan took a group of technicians to ARSUTORIA school for the training course. There, she fell in love with the charm of leather, so, later on, she quit her job and took the bag making course at the Milanese school.
