DUBAI: Dubai welcomed back Arab Men’s Fashion Week this week, inviting a host of local and international labels to showcase their most recent Spring 2022 collection. Read on for the highlights from day two of the three-day fashion event.
The Saudi label founded by Khalid Aljammaz showcased its collection for the first time during the second day of Arab Men’s Fashion Week. Established in 2016, the streetwear label premiered a fashion film, which was shot at Saudi Arabia’s futuristic NEOM. 1886 featured on the Arab Fashion Week official calendar in collaboration with the Saudi Style Council.
Iranian-Turkish designer Neda Sadeghi, creative director of YasQueen, decided to pay tribute to the tumultuous year that was 2020 for her Spring 2022 menswear collection. Aptly titled “20 20 The Year of Losses,” the brand’s latest offering was mainly focused on distressed black blazers. The designer showcased the new collection via a six-minute long fashion film that explored the theme of overcoming darkness.
As part of the ongoing partnership between the Arab Fashion Council and The Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, five emerging menswear designers from Paris, are presenting their collections during the event, which includes Lazoschmidl, a genderless label co-founded by Josef Lazo and Andreas Schmidl. Punctuating their latest consumer-fueled collection, called “Overdose,” are sloganized mesh tops and flannels that read “Buy Me” and “Out Now” alongside existing pieces from earlier collections that they brought back and reinvented in psychedelic prints, tie-dye and knitwear.
