As worldwide recession forcing a lot of luxury brands to adjust their offerings, then comes a new brand Qasimi, a new luxury brand without compromise. It debuted during London Fashion Week. Architecturally-trained H.H. Khalid bin Sultan AlQasimi formed Qasimi.
They launched their 40 piece men’s and women’s collection that was inspired by according to them by women who had impeccable taste like Louise Brooks, Joan Crawford and the story of an Egyptian cabaret dancer called Asmahan. They explored the line between masculine and feminine.
Some of the pieces might be hard to pull off and it might take really brave men to wear a sheer crop jacket and bejeweled crop top. But the white long sleeve sheer shirt, gray shorts and the deep double breasted jacket achieve being both very interesting and highly wearable. I wouldn’t mind getting them for summer if I could afford them.
