Salma Abu Deif, actor and model, has been named a new campaign star for Ammanii. The Egyptian actor appears in a series of photographs and a video for the Los Angeles and Cairo-based jewelry brand’s latest collection, making her the first high-profile celebrity to front any of Ammanii jewelry lines. “Salma is a beautiful representation of the Ammanii woman,” says the label’s founder, Amany Shaker to vogue.me of working with the Egyptian star. “Her beauty has a mystery about it that resembles that of an Egyptian Goddess, yet it is also universal. She’s adventurous, a rebel in her own way, not a conformist yet bears the dignity and allure of her traditional heritage. Her gaze has the depth of understanding of her own strength but is not afraid to show her vulnerability when needed.”

Titled Sa’mmaa, which translates to “sky,” the new Spring 2018 offering is inspired by Shaker’s love for skylines. Featuring 18 pieces, the range is punctuated with silver earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets that are each plated with gold. “The collection represents a coming home for me in many ways,” enthuses Shaker. “It signifies my desire to be an ambassador of peace connecting between my different worlds, that in the U.S and my roots in Egypt. Sa’mmaa, the sky, or the universal blanket ties both worlds and provides symbols and meanings that transcend all cultural barriers. It’s a sincere attempt to recognize our shared humanity through the story told in the jewelry.”

The new collection is accompanied by an ethereal campaign film set against the Faiyum Oasis – a basin known for its serene setting in the desert west of the Nile and south of Cairo – and is unveiled exclusively on Vogue.me. Produced by Maison Pyramide, Abu Deif showcases the striking new designs from the jewelry house favored by Emma Roberts, which was founded in 2015.

See Saudi Artist Hadeel AlHussain’s First Ever Collection

00:00 / 00:00

Abstract portrait artist turned womenswear designer Hadeel AlHussain unveils her debut collection, launching for the Spring 2018 season, exclusively on Vogue.me. AlHussain’s namesake brand takes cues from Danish and Saudi design influences, resulting in a unique mix of futureproof key pieces with a Middle Eastern flair. The melting pot of sartorial references can be pinned down to the designer’s well-travelled adventures. She has lived in Lebanon, England, Bahrain, and Denmark for periods of time before settling back in Saudi to launch her own label this year.

While the brand’s website is under construction and its Instagram account teases the first images to 860+ followers, Vogue.me explores the brand that hints at a promise of rising into a strong name.

Exaggerated tailoring has been a favorite theme for designers across the international collections, as seen at Off-White, Balenciaga, Gucci, Rosie Assoulin, and Reemami. The so-2017 approach to elongate sleeve lengths and amplify shoulder padding can be seen in AlHussain’s first collection too. Notably, the color palette is understated and confident. There’s classic navy suiting, cream shirting, and the occasional punch of gold seen on satin accents.

Themed ‘Papilio’, for butterfly, the collection celebrates free-flowing self expression and femininity. Even if you don’t connect the underlying message to the clothes themselves, the looks are undoubtedly versatile and leaves room for different women to stamp their inimitable take on it. Aimed at “a young independent, sophisticated professional who seeks selected garments that give her that extra touch to complete there persona,” AlHussain tells Vogue. From the mannish pinstripe two-piece that is tailored with a modern twist (off-the-shoulder and slightly daredevil in its cut) to the generous leather waist-belts that cinch in supersized blouses. The brand’s DNA is a clever fusion of East and West.

Having studied at Fashion Design at Copenhagen Academy of Fashion Design and ESMOD Beirut, AlHussain cuts confident silhouettes in her collections. “The greatest challenge was leaving my comfort zone as a designer and having an extra role of running a business. combining both the designing and business was quite a challenge,” AlHussain tells Vogue.me.

Citing poetry and music as her greatest creative influences, the designer began dreaming up her career aged twelve. “I dreamt of it for as long as I can remember. At aged twelve my mother walked into my room and saw me cutting some of my clothes because I wanted to change their designs,” AlHussain explains. “She asked me to design a couple of dresses and had them tailored.  I’ll never forget that. If it wasn’t for my mother, I wouldn’t have known that I had it in me.”

Moving forward the designer declares that she will be striving for a more exaggerated creative signature and looking to expand her evening-wear offering. Click follow on Insta. and watch this one rise.

Pre-orders for AlHussain Spring 2018 open in November and will be in stock from February 2018. The brand’s website is still under construction but you can sign up for updates. Designer quotes by Khulood Ahmed.
