MEDIEVAL PEASANT That was my initial impression. There's a mixture of old structure and modern cut. I've been really into renaissance wear and I was quite drawn to this collection. Not a usually one for me.
I love the french square neckline and the delicate embroidery. I've recently come to extremely appreciate the amount of workmanship put into embroidering. It takes a lot of precision and time. This collection plays around with a lot of textures and fabrics. It's almost as if Aouadi took the garment of a medieval peasant and turned it into a timeless luxury. It just comes to show that there can be beauty in the simplest of things; that there is always room for your own flare and contributions.
Some of the pieces have structure resembling a corset, others are layered over a white blouse, but what really gives it a simplistic, dated yet elegant, and sophisticated appeal is the neutral pallet. An almost bland one. Yet this collection is nowhere near bland. This collection also incorporates a masculine appeal, especially in the last two looks. From the pants to what reminds me of a petty coat, this is what separates the new from the old.
These are my favourite looks from Yacine Aouadi's Spring 2016 Couture collection.
