Syrian designer Rami Al Ali returned to the French capital for the fourteenth season, to showcase his AW 18/19 Couture collection at the beautiful setting of Hôtel Le Meurice.

For this collection, Al Ali looked to the west and back in time, for his inspiration: Art Deco, a pastiche of many different styles united by a desire to be current. This art was created and introduced by Romain de Tirtoff, famously known as Erté, in the early 20th century in France, through architecture, furniture, jewellery and fashion, comprising bold geometric forms, bright colours such as gold and black and glamorous designs.

The collection features luxury, exuberance, sleek modern yet classic designs with curvilinear shapes highlighted by the fine craftsmanship and rich material. While patterns witness repetition in elements, redefined by blending with texture and ornamentation, yet maintaining its untraditional elegance.

Continuing to maintain his signature, Al Ali combined luxurious fabrics, such as tulle, Mikado and velvet, with architecturally designed structures to create soft feminine silhouettes, whilst hand crafted embellishments adorned the pieces, implementing understated feminine charm and powerful composure.

Shades of pastels such as vintage rose, green fiord and conchiglia were dominant in this collection, gracefully contrasting with cobalt blue for a touch of romance and luxury.

Rami Al Ali’s paradoxically opposing merge of traditional techniques, modern designs and historical inspiration creates the ultimate work of couture art.
