Designer Launch – Arwa Al Banawi Launches her Fall / Winter ‘15 Collection

By 

From a fashion and lifestyle blogger who also wrote for Saudi Beauty, to a versatile designer doing what she loves – Arwa Al Banawi has truly come into her own. After studying at London School of Fashion, she decided to start designing and has recently started her brand label : Arwa Al Banawi and her first ever collection : Suitable

Covered by Harper’s Bazaar, Hello Magazine and Style Arabia amongst others, Arwa’s first collection tells the story of the modern woman – fierce, loyal, fearless and ambitious.

 

About The FW ‘15 Collection :

The Suitable Collection by Arwa is a collection of ready-to-wear suits and shirts, launched in 2015 as part of the Fall – Winter collection.

 

Our thoughts on Suitable  (F/W ’15) :

So first , not sure if the word play in the title of this collection was intended but we love how “Suitable” exemplifies so many things about the range – right from being “suit”able (most of the collection comprises of suits, love the pun!) to being suitable for the modern woman for work, play and everything in between.

What hits you first about Arwa’s Suitable Collection is the edgy, casual feel the designs have despite being pant-suits. There is a strong androgynous hint to the pant suits in the collection but Arwa manages to make the pieces look laidback without bordering on tomboyishness.

There is nothing “masculine” about these clothes, except maybe the cuts, but that can be cleverly worked to accentuate one’s femininity as well if you know how to work these pieces 🙂

Our picks from the collection :

 

You just can’t go wrong with black and white. This is the perfect piece to wear for those events that aren’t completely formal but can’t be passed off as casual either. The one term that comes to mind when I see this outfit is – Girl Boss !

 

The outfit is perfect for when you need to feel your most confident and look your best while still attending endless meetings and running errands in between.

Almost boho vibes and casual tailoring make this such a versatile outfit. The jacket can be worn so many ways with so many twists. Throw it on over a black dress for a formal event, wear it over a maxi for lunch with the girls or simply pair it with cigarette pants for looking your chic best.

An oversized jacket is a total wardrobe staple. This one worn over a crop here breaks many stereotypes associated with both crops and jackets. If you love experimenting with layering, this one is for you.
