Designer Khalid Al Qasimi

PARIS, Jun 21, 2010 / FW/ — The Qasimi’s Spring / Summer 2011 collection draws inspiration from Khalid Al Qasimi’s background in the Middle East, probing into the rural wilderness of a cross-cultural desert trek through time.

The collection calls to an era past, returning to the beautiful tradition and mystical essence of the nomadic heritage from the ancient Middle East.

This latest collection exudes the signature tailoring of which Qasimi is famed for. Minimal lapels, sleeveless suiting, oversized shirting and unlined linen jackets are mixed with a rugged twist of oversized hooded tops all of which are underlined with a hint of the military.

Leather makes an appearance in the form of sleeveless jackets; waistcoats are accentuated with sailor hoods whilst a leather and jersey all in one adds an intriguing twist. Impressive flowing trenches top the collection off, in fine delicate cotton and transparent technical fabrics.
