Clean lines, chic silhouettes and beautiful styles make up Keem Harun's 'Feminist Fatale' Spring/Summer 2017 Collection.
Oh my! Words fail me looking through Keem Harun's entire collection over and over again (I must have looked through over 10 times and it's no joke). The artistry, styling, clean cut lines on each piece is simply stunning (told you words fail me).
A cursory look through the brand's website showed a past collection that was definitely improved on and this is pretty impressive judging by what they had done in the past. Looking through the entire collection lookbook sends you into a dreamy world of beautiful girly meet ladylike designs that can only be made up. The clean lines are almost unbelievable, simple yet flirty, so daring yet in a subtle way (or is this just me?)
The collection is an ode to complexities as well as the ability to unwind; "The collection is an ode to these complexities and our ability to still unwind, let our hair down to party, laugh, have fun and enjoy life" Keem Harun's creative director Keem Harun-Adeleye revealed.
Chic patchwork as design details, cutouts making the cold shoulder trend stand out, clean asymmetric lines, streamlined waistline, 'fluid structures', sheer panelling details, slouchy monostrap details, slouchy fit and more form standout bits on the designs in the collection.
Form fitting dresses, floor length dresses, skater dresses with 'bell' sleeves, slouchy cape tops, patchwork peplum tops and dresses and more adorned the impressively styled collection.
The brand employs an array of pieces to showcase this collection in bold colours like red, blue and black sequins signifying a lady's life through home, work and several events she shows up for. The collection depicts strength, vibrancy and wholesomeness which the Keem Harun woman is.
"This collection pays tribute to the independent woman and her ability to juggle different roles throughout life and still look confident and stylish. A woman acts in different capacities; she is the lover, the wife, the mother, the professional, entrepreneur and sometimes the bread winner. Women are wired to multi-task and still be the good sister, friend, cheerleader and be positive and beautiful while playing these myriad of roles.
From Funmilayo Ransome Kuti to Coco Chanel, Maya Angelou, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Malala Yousafzai, and Beyonce, these women believed in themselves, broke down walls, defy stereotypes and changed the narratives. The Feminist Fatale collection celebrates a woman's ability to choose which role defines who she is, accentuates her strengths and makes her accomplished and significant in the grand scheme of things" the brand revealed in an accompanying note.
Except for the black sheer panelled dresses, I couldn't choose one favourite amongst the lot, I want all! But then I especially love this eternal chic flirty look above.
