I’ve been a fan of Assad Mounser since day one and I’m happy to see her getting so much editorial love lately. Her S/S collection received tremendous reviews and well-deserved hype, and was most stunningly featured on Miss Abbey Lee Kershaw in Vogue Australia. The F/W collection certainly doesn’t disappoint, taking cues from iconic women like Cleopatra and Verushka. Yes, there is a multiple century gap between those women, but they both made a mark and influence on 1960s fashion (due to Elizabeth Taylor’s over-the-top Cleopatra). The 1960s inspiration is subtle but visible, a sophisticated blend of old world opulence and mod aesthetic.
