There’s strength, creativity, and fierce potential in numbers. What follows are the fall essentials, introduced by DJ Parvané Barrett, shoe designer Katrine Hanna, and model and aspiring filmmaker Lana Al Beik – the region’s dynamic young creative force.
Designers have honed their mixology skills – it’s time you did the same. By adding a simple pop of color to your wardrobe you can elevate your style to new heights. It’s about finding the balance between bold vs neutral, and pairing jolts of primary colors with beige, grey, and off-white.
Wrapping up warm may not be your priority but you can still tap the quilting trend via skirts, bags, and spliced puffer detailing. Maximize your wardrobe by investing in some long boots and own your stomping ground with fall’s footwear of choice. Pantsuits have now been upgraded with the equally powerful, yet elegant skirt suit.
From apocalyptic macs to metallic suits, optimism comes shimmering and en masse. The best way to get noticed is in a striking silver thread or adding those silver streaks as finishing touches. Adding silver to your wardrobe will provide a crisp, sharp tone to your fall look.
Be at one with nature by layering shades of mocha, camel, terracotta, and burnt orange. Other statement pieces for the season such as baker boy caps, XXL shoppers, glossy leathers, and heavy-duty boots all came in the runway’s gloriously earthy Pantone.
A hint of rebellion ensures the timeless appeal of head-to-toe black remains strong. The bold and beautiful classic black is a fail-safe for any outfit. Embellished by leather or accessories, black remains a staple color for every wardrobe.
Rich but not so sweet, fashion’s new take on tonal dressing combines solid blocks of cranberry, acai, goji, and blackberry hues. Worn head to toe or color-blocked, berry dressing is best. You can cut through a berry medley with a not-so-classic white clutch to add that extra dimension to your outfit.
