The arid soil of a desert landscape is not a very rich one, and the lack of water makes it even harsher. It’s solely resilient plants that survive in such conditions, and there is one that excels not only with life, but also beauty: the desert rose. Its vibrant pink colour palette serves as an inspiration for Noor Al Bahrani’s delicate yet confident Spring/Summer 2021 collection.
The pieces feature flowy silhouettes and exude sophistication, with distinctive embroidery highlighting the inspiration. This season, Noor Al Bahrani presents statement details such as tulle capes and detachable tulle sleeves. Meanwhile, toneon-tone flowers handcrafted from feathers adorn kaftans next to elegant lace for an opulent aesthetic. The feminine designs are paired with delicately embellished belts and floral brocade for a romantic final touch.
The hues visited by the designer are rose, blush, and sky fused with aqua and dune, the latter duo representing an oasis found in the desert’s depths. Lavish fabrics such as silk and chiffon receive touches of lace, crepe, and tulle for a dainty effect. A selection of kidswear has also been introduced in this collection for a trendy mommy-and-me look – both boasting the mysterious beauty of the desert.
