The Middle East is a realm of mystery and intrigue, but it’s not often that the region’s deeply rooted romanticism and spiritualism is celebrated in fashion form. The Persian poet Rumi captures the romantic spirit of the Arab world with his words, and echoes of his influence can be felt throughout The Kayys new Spring/Summer 2016 collection. In the lookbook, entitled “Organic Lines”, The Kayys explore feminine romance with elegant, long-line silhouettes and tiny peeks of flesh, and pay tribute to the brand’s Middle Eastern heritage with patterns that reflect Malachite mineral formations and an overall palette that recalls a stormy desert landscape. The three Qatari sisters focus more on a ready-to-wear approach for Spring/Summer 2016, telling Savoir Flair exclusively, “We try to evolve every season and we reached a point where our focus is more ready-to-wear. It is what we want to do and how we see The Kayys girl moving forward.”
The stylish brand brings you cropped trousers with bell-shaped cuffs, floor-sweeping shirtdresses in glittering metallics, sophisticated sleeveless tunics, knot-front bomber dresses, and a myriad of other inventive, mindful pieces that honor tradition while significantly improving upon it with contemporary updates.
