Lebanese fashion designer Bashar Assaf gives his own definition of "Ethereal Beauty", the name of his minimalistic and very sophisticated ss15 collection featuring airy and delicate designs and linear silhouettes.
Young talent Bashar Assaf emphasizes the female beauty with fluid tailoring, graphical cut-outs and cropped lengths.
Standout pieces from the collection are white cut-out wide leg trousers with a classic top cropped in a sporty-chic manner for an exclusive and contemporary look.
Flowing and sheer fabrics bring out the feminine side of the woman's body.
Volatile floor length skirts in mint hue, wide leg printed pants and wrap dresses in crêpe add a delightful and elegant touch to this collection.
Bashar Assaf's design is strongly influenced by contemporary fashion trends, which add to his pieces a very modern twist.
His creative approach to sportswear finds its expression in very chic crop tops and delicate dresses.
This season the designer has played with several colours, bringing forward the clean white and soft pastels such as mauve, light blue and fresh mint.
Prints of rock formations, which were seen on some pieces, create a more edgy look.
This marks an evolution of the concept seen in his first AW13 collection Metamorphism, inspired by metamorphic rocks.
Bashar debut a menswear collection, presented in tandem with his womenswear collection.
White painted fingers and white toe nail polish on the male models evoke a sensation of surreal freshness and cleanliness. Smooth silhouettes and original prints deliver a new and vigorous spin to his work.
Bashar Assaf is a graduate of Esmod. His career has already taken off as he has produced three collections for the Starch Foundation and he was nominated for the Elle Style Awards as, 'Best Upcoming Designer in the Middle East'. We congratulate him on his contribution to, and in the name of, "Etherial Beauty".
