Discover Adish‘s Autumn Winter 2019.20 Sea of Sand collection, inspired by the Middle East during the late 1800s and early 1900s, presented with the latest lookbook captured by fashion photographer Michal Chelbin. In charge of styling was Patrick Welde, with casting direction from Sarah Benjamin at Streeters, and Akrav Agency.
“Once referred to as”Greater Syria”, a large part of its inhabitants were Bedouin tribes, which dramatically changed upon the arrival of European colonialists in the region.
This season’s collection is inspired by the Bedouin’s traditional garb and British military uniforms, re-imagining their first interactions and exchanges. Combining Eastern and Eastern style, the composition unfolds into wide pants and dresses with special attention paid to heavy embroidery and classic tailoring.
Adish presents an alternative story of the beginning of the tensions and conflicts that continue to disrupt the area.”
