The Bahraini designer chats exclusively to Bazaar about her spring/summer 2019 collection

“For spring/summer 2019 I was inspired by a series of self-travels and the solitude found within,” Amal Al Mulla tells Bazaar when asked about the inspiration behind her newest collection. “All the way up the mountains, inspired by the colour of the horizons, the remote mountain ranges and the quiet crystal blue skies.” The colour palette and layered silhouettes in the ready-to-wear label’s spring/summer 2019 collection are much like the rolling landscapes designer Amal Al Mulla describes; earthy neutrals, sky blues and mountainous greens adorn artfully layered separates and feminine silhouettes.

At the brand’s core lies modesty, which is echoed through ankle-grazing dresses, full skirts and a pared-down colour palette. “Brands such as The Row and Celine during the Phoebe Philo era put modest dressing in the spotlight. Women nowadays are slowly incorporating this way of dressing into their daily lives. We are so proud that the first online retail store that dedicates their business to modest fashion stems out of the Middle East - we commend Ghizlan Guenez’s work and are sure that it will go so far,” Al Mulla says on the modest fashion scene.

When asked if she has any favourite pieces from the collection, the Bahrain-based designer replies, “I love the whole collection, but if I had to choose it would be the maroon and blue asymmetrical dress. It’s a powerful statement number that you can mix-and-match with everything in your closet, be it a denim jacket and flats for a day time look, or dressing it up for night with heels and a clutch.”

The Amal Al Mulla woman is someone who isn’t afraid to be transparent with her own individuality and shows up to the world as she is. She’s confident and beautiful and strong yet sensitive and authentic and raw. She’s not afraid to take a piece, style it and make it completely her own in a way that she can tell her own story through our clothing. “
