For Fall/Winter 2016, Farrag has her sights set on Japan and the serene landscapes and perfectly manicured gardens found throughout the country.
For Bedouin designer Andraya Farrag, the concept of fashion without borders is both figurative and literal. Each collection she crafts takes us on a journey around the world, to road trips through a Nevada desert, through the lush landscapes of Mexico, or on a dreamy Hawaiian vacation. For Fall/Winter 2016, Farrag has her sights set on Japan and the serene landscapes and perfectly manicured gardens found throughout the country.
A palette of white, lavender, silver, navy, charcoal, and gunmetal gray punch up the incredible jacquard, lace, and mesh textures of the Bedouin collection. Its sleek, minimalist silhouette is punctuated by modern motifs, like paneling, asymmetrical tailoring, off-shoulder necklines, and strategically placed cutouts. “This season brings a fresh approach to our contemporary take on tradition by fusing urban street style with clean Japanese-inspired silhouettes,” Farrag explains in an exclusive interview with Savoir Flair.
The urban character of the collection is found in an excellent array of outerwear, which features silver parkas with scooped-out hemlines and glossy silver varsity jackets. As Farrag explains, this is a new silhouette for the brand; “Bedouin welcomes the Parka jacket to the tribe this season in a luxe navy camouflage or bespoke Italian jacquard.” In addition to these street-smart pieces, the collection is rounded out with a sublime variety of multi-textured midi dresses that are practical and feminine enough to wear from day to evening. “In true Bedouin spirit, Fall/Winter 2016 presents go-to, effortless pieces with a subtle confidence through delicate embroidery and lace paneling,” adds the designer.
