Couture Week may have come to an end, but we’re still swooning over Syrian designer Rami Al Ali’s collection, which marked his return to the French Capital. Under the eyes of fashion’s elite, the A/W’16 collection was showcased within the beautiful venue of Hotel d’Evreux.
Inspired by the decorative assemble and technique of Mosaic art, Rami used the idea of ‘grouping’ as metaphor for the sovereignty of the collective over the individual and a reflection of our lives in society. Always maintaining the signature Al Ali feminine allure, the collection referenced fifties glamour with cinched-in waists and billowing skirts, as well as off-shoulder, uneven necklines rendering the romantic undercurrent of yesteryears. The hourglass silhouettes and fabrics added some high-voltage drama and sensuality to the eveningwear.
Tulle, satin and chiffon are reworked with snippets of lace and crystal mesh as embellishments in shades of Bordeaux, dark slate and ensign blue adding to the overarching mystique feel. Lilac and subtle green lighten up the mood and modernize the couture collection.
