As the name might suggest, House of Nomad is always up for exploration. For Fall/Winter 2015, the label’s wandering ways have led it to a boarding school, where the girls are hip, edgy, and achingly chic. “The name of this collection is ‘We Wandered Into a Boarding School,’ and this is exactly where we got our inspiration from,” share brand co-founders Ahmed El-Sayed and Saleh Al-Banna in an exclusive interview with Savoir Flair.
“We were inspired by 90s movies like Clueless and Cruel Intentions. Our collection was split into two parts; the introduction of felt and tweed paid homage to private British schools, where the fabric silhouettes are more straight, while a second part of the collection was inspired by American high-school culture, where we focused on neoprene and pushed our sport-luxe silhouettes further.”
This collection has strong curb appeal for the street style crowd, with a mix of printed cropped tops, varsity jackets, fitted shorts, tweed dusters, and pleated skirts that are destined to be the envy of any style maven. As House of Nomad’s popularity has grown, so too has the designers’ confidence in their own output, with this collection ringing in at 45 full looks for both men and women. Fall/Winter 2015 also proves that the brand has evolved its look, with mature fabrics like tweed finding a surprisingly welcome pairing in youthful neoprene, as well as a wise approach to proportion play with the introduction of new cuts and silhouettes.
