Homegrown, modest wear brand, The Orphic, is proud to release its ‘Pre-Fall 2018’ collection. A medley to muted neutrals and bold silhouettes, the collection has been designed with the modern Arab woman in mind.
Earlier this year, sisters, Mariam and Amna Al Mualla, joined forces to launch The Orphic – the UAE’s first homegrown, accessible luxury, fashion brand targeted towards both modest to vivacious dressers. The brand’s first collection released just in time for Eid-ul-Fitr 2018, with designs ranging from high fashion Abayas to enchanting gowns. Having successfully captivated the UAE’s heart and soul, the brand is ready to make new waves, this time in the realm of layering.
Playing with dramatic silhouettes and near-theatrical lines juxtaposed with an understated colour palette and distinctive textures, the Pre-Fall collection takes inspiration from autumn leaves, breezy afternoons and the girl about town to deliver a range of satorial pieces that could work with any wardrobe! From chic staples such as the ‘Wrapped Skirt’ (AED 400), to the statement-making ‘High-waist Pants with Marble Buttons’ (AED 500), the collection provides a series of delightful pairing options, be it a white tee for daytime time trendy or a white button-down for dinner glam.
The collection also features a heavy quotient of the brand’s signature ‘modern Abayas’ including ‘The Side-flare Coat Abaya’ (AED 1,200), in a textured marl coloured fabric, and the ‘Pearl Embroidery Abaya’ (AED 2,500) in a light chiffon fabric reminiscent of the September skies.
Amongst structured formal blouses and tops, the collection also delivers a range of vivacious dresses and gowns, easily styled by all. The ‘Light Olive-Green Dress’ (AED 650) can be worn with a light denim jacket or paired with shiny new Valentino’s, easily morphing looks to fit moods, whilst the ‘Trench Dress’ (AED 1200) takes the regions captivation with the famed trench coat and transforms the beloved silhouette into a draping evening gown.
Having always harboured a keen eye for trends and a love for style, Mariam and Amna both use fashion as a way of expressing themselves, a belief that translates into the brands expressive embroidery patterns and dramatic designs. The sisters have created the brand with painstaking attention to detail, from sourcing the finest fabrics to employing the most skilled tailors and craftsmen to give life to their designs.
Meaning unique and entrancing beyond ordinary understanding, The Orphic aims to provide just that to the modern, discerning Arab woman – a new perspective on the same trends. Each design is handmade locally, within the UAE, reinforcing the brand’s commitment to provide quality, woven satirical experiences.
