A string of time weaved from the patches of what was, the greatest empire and oldest civilizations: refined art, exceptional culture and architectural heritage; Persia.
The Fall Winter 23 collection ‘Shahbanu’, celebrates the splendors of Persia, their exceptionally rich culture and the distinguished beauty of the Persian woman.
Inspired by their abundant flora; this season’s unique print paints a water green shade appaearing through delicate transparencies portraying the emblematic lotus flower that miraculously grows in the murkiest of conditions. It grows in mud; without stains, a symbol of purity, strength and beauty of perfection. Its softness is translated in the velvety fabrics of the collection, representing the grace of flowers.
Balancing nature’s diversity, boldness on the other hand dominates the collection through sharply tailored power suits and neat silhouettes, where persian roots take the designs to an artistic dimension of the fascinating Persian heritage. From the royal crowns ornamented with blue saphires as a sign of wealth and power, the collection features tints of saphire representing the imperial influence.
A whirlwind of textures, swinging through a blend of colors extracted from a passionately pigmented culture of art and architecture, is featured in the Fall Winter 23 looks.
Hues of lilac and red, the hints of the preciously rare saffron, are married with colored embellishments inspired by heritage tiles shining through gleaming crystals and beaded irregular thread lines. Those that portray the imperfect Persian tapestry; for perfection is a virtue of the divines.
HONAYDA ‘s ‘Shahbanu’ collection represents an homage to a civilization that praised its heritage through art and an era that will always be remembered for its remarkable creativity and phenomenal beauty.
