Available exclusively on The Modist, Dubai-based designer Dima Ayad has launched a chic capsule collection of pieces for the Holy month. The clothes take inspiration from an intergalactic world and are littered with space-like references, from the playful lurex to the multi-dimensional jacquards to the metallic colourways. The designer talks Bazaar through some of the key pieces, below.
“I’m obsessed with all things metallic, and love the subtle tonal contrasts in this kaftan. The center seam makes it ultra-flattering and the texture of the jacquard fabric shimmers beautifully in the light.”
“This shimmering pink coat was designed for making an entrance. It’s the perfect accent to an outfit, whether it’s worn over an elegant evening dress to amp up a formal look, or paired with shredded denim and a t-shirt for an edgier take. Perfect for pre-fall, the light-weight of the shimmering jacquard makes it a really versatile statement piece to own.“
“The versatility of this shimmering shirt-dress is uncanny. I get really excited about multi-functional wardrobe pieces that really earn their place in your closet, with the potential to last a lifetime. Dressed up for evening, or worn casually during the day, this shirt-dress is my go-to.”
“This lurex two-piece set was designed to be a real statement maker. I love this matchy-matchy look because the shimmer and richness of the blue colour work so well for all skin tones. Worn as separates they’re lovely, but when they’re paired together this outfit becomes one of my favourites in the entire collection.”
“Paired with a simple t-shirt or a formal top, this shimmering skirt is fluid, comfortable and so easy to wear. Made in a pale, shimmering pink shade, the layers are incredibly flattering and it’s a real scene-stealer of a piece.”
