Light Matters

LM1

Juxtaposed against contemporary interpretations of Arabic architecture, here we showcase some of this season’s most statement-making gowns. Pattern and light are explored through mashrabiya, a form of latticework that uses geometric shapes to provide shade, resulting in patterned sunlight where light passes through.

Fashion meets art in this editorial inspired by cabinets of curiosities, the Renaissance practice of compiling collections of oddities that include museum-quality antiques and rare flora and fauna. Gowns with floral appliqués and embroidery reflect the tradition’s botanical influence, and vintage jewels and oversized accessories add the perfect touch of eccentricity.
