Syrian designer Rami Al Ali returns to Paris for the thirteenth season to present his Spring/Summer 18 Couture collection at the sumptuous setting of the Hotel Ritz Paris. The collection tells the harmonious intertwined story between the art and elegance of The Hall of Mirrors at the Amalienborg Palace.
Inspired by the beautiful silver wall carvings of Johann Joachim Dietrich at The Hall of Mirrors, the collection showcases elegance and creativity at its finest. From the elegant baroque mirror designs to the chic crystal chandeliers, the white ceiling and blue stucco work, Al Ali took in every element and detail to create the designs, the structures and to define the color palette.
Bringing imagination to reality, Al Ali used luxurious fabrics and several techniques to create volume and structure to highlight the feminine silhouette. From satin to crepe, organza, tulle & chiffon the fabrics created soft, flowing, structured and textured silhouettes, befitting the brand’s signature feminine aesthetic, whilst time-honored techniques are incorporated to modernise the classic embroidery. Shades of metal grey and doeskin dominates the collection while powder lemon, crystal pink and pastel green come in to complete the blending of the color palette and to add a touch of romance.
