Great minds think alike they say and guess who we spotted thinking on similar Grecian lines this season? Our very own fashion designer, Sania Maskatiya, and Head Designer for Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld! Yes, we were already super impressed by Maskatiya’s Luxe evening wear at the Hum Showcase and the Beirut Fashion Week, but then we came across Chanel’s resort collection and it blew us away.
Lagerfeld took us back to the ancient Greece with his timeless pieces. Similarly, Sania Maskatiya’s shimmery kaftaans, off-shoulder Grecian dresses are wardrobe classics that are here to stay.
Here is proof that Lagerfeld and Maskatiya may have more in common than just belonging to the same industry.
Greek goddesses are often imagined in off-shoulder ethereal dresses and both the designers have brought them back in vogue. They had a number of goddess moments in their respective showcases.If you want to introduce some drama to an off-shoulder dress then take cue from these designers and add a cape or soft organza to your ensemble.Capes are not going out of fashion anytime soon.Long dresses cinched at the waist any one? Yes, please. Apparently, they’re trending this season, especially the ones with tapered silhouettes.If you’ve had enough of flow-y dresses? You can drool over these structured short dresses, instead. While Maskatiya opts for a peplum top and a tapered skirt, Lagerfeld keeps the shirt boxy and skirt pleated.
