Fall ’19 for Naeem Khan was a celebration of the artisan techniques he’s renowned for, yet suffused with a newfound lightness and refinement that only elevated each piece. A true master of his craft, Naeem stayed true to his textural techniques carried through each collection with delicate beading, three dimensional appliqué and bold silk embroidery.
This season was a beautiful balance of tactile finishes with sheer, ethereal organzas and slim-lined silhouettes. While staying true to his roots, the drama of Naeem’s collection was toned down and channeled into intricate detailing, creating an elegant collection that exuded a modern bohemia.
A sheer gown wrapped in antique botanical motifs, the perfect dress for the modern bohemian bride. On first glance, it looks to be embroidered, yet a closer expectation reveals layers of intricate and unexpected textures – stitches is lined with white pearlescent beads, framed with a quilting beading technique and constructed from a blend of different fabrics. It’s this inimitable detail and artisanal approach that never fails to surprise us every single season, that separates Naeem Khan from any designer.
The rooted bohemianism of the season calls for a free spirited approach to styling, yet the detailed dimensional texture of these pieces can be hard to match. For a chic, understated look opt for a pair of simple baroque pearl earrings that will let the dress be the statement. Come evening, elevate the look with a pair of tonal chandelier earrings or strappy sandals that are subdued in the eclectic energy of the dress.
