HSY “The Kingdom Collection” Showcased at PLBW 2016 | Day 1
The self-styled ‘King of Couture’ showcased a collection that was divided into four capsules. While The Kingdom brought back some of the spark HSY is known for, parts of it felt like the designer had spread himself too thin. Earlier it seemed that he had been ignoring his fashion brand in lieu of greater pursuits but he mostly proved otherwise with this collection.
He showed Kalajar, Mahkar and Khat e Sahil and finished with his best, Sherastan. The last capsule was inspired by an independent, emancipated woman who allowed HSY to run wild with his imagination. This lack of restraint was what proved worthwhile with Old World, opulent and traditional bridals for which sisters Urwa and Mawra Hocane walked as showstoppers. As far as accessories are concerned, the design philosophy was quite clear: the bigger the better. HSY’s menswear was well done too and it’s good to know that he is serious on that front as well.
