Sparkling trinkets leave mark on Abed Mahfouz line
Jul '13
A fondness of sparkling trinkets leaves their mark on Fall/Winter 2013/14 Abed Mahfouz collection for this new edition of Altaroma Altamoda. As a magpie-like sensibility inspires a range of lux appliqué looks. Clusters of gems, broaches and metallic shapes add interest to the elegant dresses.

The ornament elements embroidered, beaded and jewelled embellishments give a glitz and eclectic contrast next to the soft material. The embroidery exudes a vintage vibe aesthetics and a luxurious feeling thanks to three dimensional shining and plates gleam with a statement brightening.

The invasion of the botanical snatchers illustrates current fixation on elaborated plants and flora, from spindly leaves and stalks to oversized plants, this all-over botanical display comes in all shapes and sizes for sophisticated drama with a touch of surreal in the whole collection.

Some of the dresses show new mermaid cuts including several fabric layers; besides the illusion tulle, the designer used jetting scrolls of crin, lace Chantilly, refined filet and crepe silk.

In terms of chromatic selection, Abed Mahfouz used colour variations carefully adapted to the season such as the absinthe acid, hot coral, rumba red, stucco, Maui blue, bottle green, all of which share an iridescent darkness or lux sheen when applied to silk blends making for the ultimate in opulent darks.

In a world of continuous mixed abstractions, Abed Mahfouz manages once again to translate his creative imagination into pure beauty forms.
