Elegant sophistication with an urban edge is how you could describe her designs and the SS15 collection is true to form. Marking the twelfth collection by the acclaimed designer, Route X11 is inspired by a graffiti lace vermillon colour. There is something very Bond girl-esque about this particular collection, with long, flowing gowns with sexy cut-out detailing and short, structured pieces that flatter the female form. Light fabrics, simple yet delicate cutsmake up this collection and are trademark feature across all.
To mark the Summer season, the palette is one of bright, bold colours that demand attention, they are the perfect occasion pieces, whatever the occasion! It’s eye-catching, seductive and instinctively feminine.
It’s hard to find wearable couture, but Caroline Seikaly has nailed it. This was never in question however, citing Christian Lacroix and Karl Lagerfeld as her mentors. The brand now has a very distinct signature style which nods to European sensibility but perfect for the Middle East’s glamorous culture.
