It’s no surprise that fashion designers face a host of challenges in their field, and the continuous reinvention of their brand’s aesthetic into new forms that don’t stray too far from its core identity is a big one. Regional contemporary brand Kage, however, does this effortlessly for Fall/Winter 2016, and its dynamic efforts have resulted in a covetable collection that could potentially provide the new building blocks of your winter wardrobe. The designer, Basma Abu Ghazaleh, have reworked the brand’s classic silhouettes and breathed new life into them through the use of micro prints, thus requiring you to take a closer look at each.
Sharing their stylistic approach toward the collection, Abdelhadi and Abu Ghazaleh explain, “We combined streamlined silhouettes with this season’s contemporary lengths for an understated approach to winter dressing. Shades of hazy grays, earthy browns, and soft reds and greens were incorporated with playful 3D cat and tulip prints. Simplistic shapes and cuts are used with soft shirt cottons to give an instant update that reinstates a lighthearted, sprightly aura to this season.”
