What do Wes Anderson and Versailles have in common? They served as the main sources of inspiration for L’Afshar’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection. “I’m so excited about this collection, because it brings together old and contemporary elements that have inspired me. The Grand Trianon in Versailles and Wes Anderson’s trademark symmetrical videography are evident in the new colors and patterns,” says Founder and Designer Lilian Afshar. The covetable clutches are aptly named after characters from Anderson movies, such as The Grand Budapest Hotel or The Royal Tenenbaums.
In addition to the now-cult-favorite marble clutch, the new collection consists of pieces created in a cool color palette of pink quartz, clear quartz, emerald, burgundy, black, white, and gray, and the bags are available in small, medium, and large sizes with matte finish and engraving options.
This week, the young Dubai-based designer is not only celebrating the unveiling of her new collection, but also her debut on Moda Operandi. Speaking exclusively to Savoir Flair, she shares, “Being on Moda Operandi is the opportunity of a lifetime! It’s always great knowing regional brands are being recognized by major international platforms like this. It’s an affirmation that we’re heading in the right direction as we continue to take L’Afshar to the next level.”
All clutches are manufactured in Dubai and are available to purchase on www.lafshar.com.
