Trust Rami Al Ali to masterfully offer a vision of changing seasons through couture as an “homage to the dawn of spring.” Unveiled alongside Paris couture week, the Syrian designer’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection is a pastel dream of 22 looks that journey through seasons. “This collection’s theme is an optimistic one,” Al Ali shared with Vogue Arabia. “It is a positive force symbolized by the snow melting and spring blooming as the skies clear up from the heavy clouds that overwhelmed it over the past few seasons. I wanted the energy of my collection to be light, cheerful, and happy.” To that end, the color palette is thoughtfully curated to include mint green, citron yellow, and pale rose that represent warmth transitioning from the cooler and moodier icy blue and black.

Nearly a year after celebrating the 20th anniversary of his fashion house, the celebrity-loved designer showcases his honed aesthetic by offering both, delicately feminine and sharp structured pieces. Slinky dresses with sweeping cape sleeves contrast against show-stopping voluminous layered skirts, while his signature sculptured elements flow seamlessly into fluid draping in the same dress. The selection of fabrics and the craftsmanship rendered to them adds to the designer’s vision of shifting seasons to a great extent. Delicate and light muslin, tulle, satin, silk, and organza offer an air of dreaminess to the collection, crystals are used for a frost-like effect, and so is intricate beading in geometric patterns to appear as if they are melting off the gowns.
