We share a New Edge collection Fall / Winter 2013 by one of our Haut Couture Arabesque Abaya and Sheila brand by Judith Duriez.
A masterful mixture of ethereal and edgy looks, Arabesque Fall / Winter 2013 plays with the season’s foremost trends – soft earth colors, architectural lines and experimental layering techniques – to offer a new take on femininity. With a largely autumnal palette where grayish blue, ash , ivory and pale lavender and burgundy are interspersed with an occasional splash of electrifying royal blue or bronze,
Judith Duriez indulges – to great effect - her romantic side while striking an artful balance between the futuristic minimalism and the pared-down luxury that the label Arabesque stands for. Cubist and futuristic patterns and graphic shapes are softened by sheer overlays of breath-weight silk chiffons , Tulle , and fine French laces in a medley of texture and detail that attests to this designer’s endless wealth of ideas.
The new Fall Winter Day-wear comprises a covetable display of eminently wearable designs with an edgy attitude. The looks go back to the future combining dazzling computer generated hand embroidered designs with sleek, almost aerodynamic lines. Embellishment is kept to a minimum letting the architectural silhouettes steal the limelight.
Dressier options venture into the organic world where floral French Laces find their way on the new Signature cut abaya or, when interpreted in frills and artful corsages, nestle on the collar and adorn the tight-fitting sleeves.
But it is in evening category that Judith Duriez’ talent shines brightest. This time around the French designer dreams up gravity-defying silhouettes, expectedly luxurious yet surprisingly innovative. Think exquisite styles featuring swirls of air-infused chiffon, wisps of eyelash lace, lavish overlays of guipure , brocade , intricate hand embroidery work and glittering Lurex laces.
Dominated by the ever-chic monochrome scheme, each creation comes as an epitome of glamour, elegance and sophistication with a modern edge.
Turning to the future for inspiration Judith Duriez proves yet again her endless ability to reinvent herself. With her new Fall Winter 2013 collection she promises a season filled with otherworldly beauty, banishing nostalgia and repetition.
It is one of the most gorgeous and feminine collection that conquered our hearts.
Thank you Judith for making us look and feel so beautiful!
