Beirut-based Lebanese fashion designer Bashar Assaf caught our attention in 2013 with a “ethereal”-themed ready-to-wear collection that extolled the virtues of the female figure and challenged traditional Middle Eastern attire. After landing on the “It” list with his contemporary, feminine designs, Assaf continued to make an impression on the industry with his presentations at Fashion Forward in Dubai.
In this Exclusive First Look feature, Savoir Flair readers become the first to lay eyes on his forthcoming Spring/Summer 2015 collection. With a penchant for fluid tailoring supported by a sportswear aesthetic, his new collection emphasizes strong shoulders and hips with cutouts, cropped lengths, and sheer fabrics. Discover the collection by clicking through the gallery above.
