“I always say, she knows what she wants and she’s a leader,” muses Harith Harishm, the Lebanese designer behind the contemporary luxury brand Harithand. “I want to create a chemistry between the woman and her clothes.”
Soft-spoken, Hashim express his creative flair through his clothes that demonstrate a sophisticated flirtation with feminine codes. Under Hashim’s hand, ruffles and on-trend puff sleeves always feature the right proportions, and a sweetheart bust remains modest and elegant paired with a high neck.
His monochromatic color palette of poppy red, shocking pink, or dramatic ebony invites the eye to study the tailored or flou details and admire his choice of rich fabrics like taffeta and organza in this breakthrough collection.
Hashim adds an element of playfulness with the introduction of a pink cactus decoupage with golden thorns and dimensional embroideries, leading his heroine into a wild dreamworld. Six years into his brand, Hashim is upping the ante on creating contemporary luxury clothing for women with a particular calendar of events that dabble in the realms of culture and wanderlust travel. Quite simply, a collection for women whereby chic is their calling card. To quote Amy Fine Collins, “You just knew chic when you encountered it, and it always gave you a frisson.” Harithand.com
