ANTOINETTE EL-ALAM

ANTOINETTE

A vibrant vision and alternative to traditional luxury menswear, this collection elevates the everyday and mundane items into highly desirable and luxurious fashion. Office stationary, objects of the commonplace, are re-interpreted to act as visually dynamic and powerful symbols using manual screen printing and distressed foiling. Each garment and print is authentically handcrafted with high-end wool fabrications and finishes. The collection pushes the boundaries of traditional tailoring, including an 'inside out' aesthetic where some pocket bags and seams are innovatively on the outside of the garments while remaining completely functional.
