COLLECTION A/W 2016
The Autumn/Winter Collection 2016 reflects a dialogue between the Japanese culture and the modern western European world.
The collection moves in waves reminiscent of the 1950’s film genre La Nouvelle Vague: when surreal images were independent of linear storylines and mainly strived for clear and intense imagery. The AW collection evokes the same feminine strength through a surreal expression of emotions; lust is juxtaposed with religion, geometry breaks with fluidity, and illumination against the faded.
”Staying true to our aesthetics, we translate the asymmetric oriental shapes and sometimes surreal image to the sophistication of our silhouettes. Rendering a new kimono-esque form” says Randa Saome and Natalia Altewai, designers of AltewaiSaome.
The longing of the heart finds its completion in reality; as romantic as the northern English estates, as severe as it’s surrounding, as raw and truthful as our minds. A touch of English tailoring is entangled in the collection.
The palette for the Autumn / Winter Collection includes shades of grey, camel, the immortal black and a very pure tone of white.
