Bedouin’s clear nomadic aesthetic can be felt in every collection, but it’s designer Andraya Farrag’s flexible treatment of the theme that keeps us coming back for more. For Spring/Summer 2016, Bedouin inspiration was as far-flung as ever, with Farrag seeking out South American nomadic lifestyles for ideas and imagery that she could transform into wearable, stylish clothes. “I was captivated by the indigenous tribes of Mexico, most notably the Aztecs, which channels throughout this collection,” she shares exclusively with Savoir Flair. “In true Bedouin fashion, the traditional techniques are reworked to create our up-to-date interpretation.”
Although she applies familiar equatorial details to her designs, with fringed layers and flamenco ruffles adding surface texture to her summer separates, Farrag also updates Latin elements with touches of on-trend treatments like off-shoulder and lace-front details. “Capturing the essence and spontaneity of the Latin lifestyle, Bedouin Spring/Summer 2016 is perfect for a long summer evening whether you’re in Mexico City, London, Stockholm, Dubai, or Singapore,” Farrag concluded, and we couldn’t agree more.
