DUBAI: Dubai-based womenswear brand Shatha Essa is taking luxury to a whole new level this season. The Emirati label, led by the young designer of the same name, is unveiling its Noir 19/20 collection, which comes out right in time for you to revamp your Eid wardrobe.
Noir, the brand’s evening-wear line, is a reinvention of classic style, accommodating the modern woman’s needs for a chic yet modest lifestyle. Titled “Botanic Treasures,” the line’s new collection draws inspiration from the 19th century’s iconic Temperate House, in Kew Gardens, South West London.
The Victorian glasshouse is home to 1,500 species of plants from all over the world, situated in the middle of heavenly fields of green. It served as the alluring inspiration for the statement gowns, A-line dresses and floral patterns that appear on the embellished capes of the collection.
From polished silk to playful tulle, the luxurious textiles form statement pieces straight out of a fairy tale. Bold embellishment across the fluid silhouettes add further majestic beauty to each of the pieces.
While the floral details embody the dreamy “treasures” of the collection, the colors significantly highlight its femininity. The serene palette includes hues of green, rose, ivory and cream, a delicate combination of all the colors to watch out for during this festive season.
Shatha Essa debuted in 2016, with the young designer having a vision to blend modern elegance with styles that transcend seasons. “As a designer, I believe in a well curated, quality wardrobe that is not brimming with trend-based pieces, but rather carefully filled with garments that are timeless and versatile,” she said of her work.
Shatha Essa’s collection is available for purchase online via Ounass.
