Born in Kuwait, raised in Saudi Arabia, and educated in London where he graduated from Richmond University, London, England with a degree in Mass Communications followed by a master’s degree in International Marketing and Management at Westminster University. Egyptian designer Hisham Wali decided to go back to Cairo where he launched HUWA, a fine accessories brand for men after years of personal passion for pins and cufflinks and overall elegant menswear, thus paving the way for aspiring male designers to make their mark in Egyptian fashion.
His latest collection “Kings and Crowns” launched for the FW 2018 season, features a series of the brand’s signature lapel pins and cufflinks among other accessories such as bracelets and cigar holders, each inspired by a different historic era. Each creation is made of sterling silver and brass, either plated in gold or platinum, and embellished with precious and semi-precious stones.
Set to shed a light on the royal spirit in each one of its wearers, the collections pieces include majestic elements of all kinds from crowns to weaponry and iconic mythical symbols.
The idea of this collection came to designer Hisham Wali after paying a visit to the state-of-art galleries hosed by the V&A museum of London. He likes to consider this collection your moment of nobility. Every piece in the collection will add sophistication and take your outfit from regular to royal.
