Lilian Afshar, the name behind those infamous L’Afshar bug-etched acrylic clutches, felt a natural gravitational pull to work with Emirati ready-to-wear designer Madiyah Al Sharqi as a result of their aesthetics and their friendship. The two met at Esmod in Dubai as students, and have made supporting each other’s creative endeavors an important cornerstone of their relationship. Their new collaboration, L’Afshar for Madiyah Al Sharqi, highlights an exquisite blending of worlds: L’Afshar’s sharp shapes and signature beetle-slash-dragonfly etchings and Madiyah Al Sharqi’s clean, minimalist pastels. The clutch has a muted-pink side and a cream side, reminiscent of the French confectioneries favored by Marie Antoinette, a great source of inspiration for Sharqi. The release will occur simultaneously with the launch of Madiyah Al Sharqi’s full ready-to-wear line for Fall/Winter 2014. Take an exclusive first look at the gorgeous collaboration in the gallery above, and mark your calendars for one of the most highly anticipated accessories releases in the region.
