I had too much to dream last night...

Bahrain-based designer Amal Al Mulla smartly makes her fall collection debut with buzzy and whimsical designs. That was my first though as I skimmed through her lookbook which was sent to me by e-mail.

For Fall 2015, Amal Al Mulla continues the visionary story line created for the brand and knots her girl this season towards a winter haze full of wonder state of mind, with an undeniably quirky aesthetic.

The collection entitled ‘I had too much to dream last night’ is inspired by that one moment between dreaming and awake, and that concept of exploring the imperfections and perfections of such a particular moment. The pieces are designed in an array of neutral winter tones from Pale Greens, Light Grays and Creamy Whites that clash in contrast of darker shades such as Jet Blacks and Forest Greens. The brand’s primary aesthetic of strong contrast still visible within, structured silhouettes and straight cuts shaped in knits and wool play a role against relaxed pleats and layers of soft frills and feminine flows in organzas, crepes and silk chiffons creating an effortless and sophisticated elegance.
Sheer paneling and sheer cuts are focused all throughout the collection, with a subtle hint of raw edges, tailored around sleeve finishings and necklines. Symbolizing the cold winter dream, embellishments play a big role this season, introducing three types of designed embellishments that grow within the pieces and are placed strategically around.
