Natalia Bauzà in WOMEN IG-1
Overwhelming, those are not my words, they are hers; Natalia Bauzà. With her 1.78 height, even more with heels, full of vitality, a strong, dynamic women, it is impossible to leave anyone indifferent; we could say that it is these types of women that leave their mark. "Overwhelm means to intensify, to energize, to use positive force to pull the people to you and motivate them, always looking forward . Throughout the years you learn, and know that is why it is very good to be honest with yourself" Natalia is the client and friend that with which Isabel Guarch has wanted to inaugurate this section of women IG, in which to be able to share the best kept secret of the company: Why all these strong women, attractive and with personality overflowing, rely on her to help them shine even further. We have an appointment in the Isabel Guarch boutique, Plaça Mercat number 16, taking advantage of the fact that Natalia is bringing some pieces that she wants to modify. They sit at the back of the shop in an intimate corner away from the glances, a place where Isabel is able to devote to each client the treatment and the time required.
Isabel and Natalia met eight years ago. By that time, Natalia was director of the Office of the Banca March in Plaza Madrid. N- I always wanted to make them a client but when I called I was told many thanks, but at that time were not interested. I knew the brand from el corte ingles and had already bought some things. We had to buy a gift for a friend, so I called and went up to the apartment, which at that time was where the boutique was. We returned later to change the gift. Isabel assisted us and already you can imagine what happened with 2 mad compulsive women who love jewellery, we bought half the store. In the end it became a relationship of friendship and trust, she adds. I - What is your favorite piece from all the collections that you have been buying throughout the years? N- Unfortunately I was robbed and they stole several pieces, including the two rubber bracelets with diamonds from the Colors collection, with which I feel very identified, so I returned to order them once again.
I- and if you had to summarize why you like my pieces, what would you say? This is something that always helps me to learn; the qualities that you hold high above all other things and that help me to raise the bar for future collections. N- The truth is that for me, everything you do I love. What I call "the sweet delights" are pieces that I can combine with everything. They always have a link and tell a story about Mallorca which makes them even more special. The rose window of the cathedral, the first coin minted in Mallorca…. Many of them I have had made in gold because I know that they are pieces that I will always want and have. Natalia is currently wearing the Formentor pendant and pieces from the Reial collection, a pendant in silver and rose gold and a bracelet with black diamonds. In addition, the pendant with diamonds is mounted in gold (a unique piece).
I- What piecess of your jewellery are special to you ? N- From Tous, you´ll see (she hides a smile),it is a gold bear with several stones and some rubies in the eyes. I always asked my mother when I was small if I could have it and it was clear that the piece would be for me as it will now be for my daughters. In general I am very sentimental and I am often with Isabel making changes and adaptations but keeping that special meaning; it is still my bear. Today I brought a necklace to lengthen, it is a piece of coral with a chain which is very special because it is linked to my father who died 6 months ago. When she speaks of Isabel, Natalia makes it clear that the basis of their relationship is not just a friendship but a confidence in everything that has to do with jewels. "The taste and sensitivity that Isabel has is very difficult to find" and she adds one of many examples that dot the conversation "she immediately can see if it will suit me or simply, if I will like it". The comparison with her profession cannot be more interesting: N- "in the bank I see it on a daily basis. To be able to work to suit peoples taste, there has to be that component of confidence" On one occasion, I brought Isabel a bracelet that was my mothers and what a surprise when we found out that it wasn´t gold; my mother couldn't believe it but of course we had hoped it would be. In the end, it turned out that the piece was plated with an alloy that was at that time masked as gold but in any case, we never stop believing in it" I-"I am confident and I like people who are confident too, at the same time I like to treat people how I would like and expect to be treated" I- If you had to qualify your style what would it be? N- I have so many styles that I have no specific style. In the bank people have asked if I have a tracksuit; note that they do not see me on the weekends in the fields or in the summer when I fish. I- But always with style
N - Always; I like to show off and I have no problem recognizing it. If you invest time in getting ready, you look good and like receiving compliments, with taste, of course. I- Can you define yourself with a word? N - it is curious because in a working meeting we were asked if we could describe ourselves with an adjective. Most opted for more neutral qualities but when my time came I did not hesitate: Overwhelming. It might sound a little strong or even with negative connotations but I believe in moving , pushing, pulling to you the things that you want and want to move forward with. Over the years you wil learn to know you and therefore it is very good to be honest with yourself. Is there a rule by which you live when choosing accessories? N - when I go out, I have to look good and add-in things that adapt, conform to me. That is enough. A reason to wear Isabel Guarch jewellery? N - because you can come from Zara but Isabel Guarch jewels manage to give you that touch that makes you know that where you're going you are going dressed; it gives you many options and if you like fashion and value style, that is very important. I - with all the costume jewellery that there is and that we all have, for you is it important to know that the piece you are wearing is a jewel? N-Yes but not that others know; that is not important. "I always need to wear quality goods". I- I am like that with jewels and with shoes, wearing those two things of good quality, the rest for me is not so important. After a healthy meal with oriental touches, we have to say goodbye to Natalia as she has a meeting. She has left us impressed and has brought us closer , if possible, to see what is the profile of the women of Isabel Guarch.
