Elegant abayas, kaftans, modest dresses and tailored suits make up the capsule collections released by regional and international brands for the holy month of Ramadan. Here’s a look at some of the latest special releases.
Taller Marmo has produced a seven-piece Ramadan capsule collection exclusive to MatchesFashion. The Milanese brand’s craftsmanship is evident in the soft crepes, organza fabrics and lustrous silk-satins that have been selected in rich jewel tones and subtle pastel pinks. Relaxed, modest silhouettes channel sophisticated glamour, with floral motifs and bold fringing adding to the charm.
Anatomi maintains its minimal aesthetic for this very feminine Ramadan collection focused on unique cuts, heavy hand-worked embroidery and delicate fabrics. The statement-making sleeves of certain garments point to designer Doaa Alghouti’s strong appreciation for architecture, with textured Italian brocades creating more structured looks, and soft, delicate crepes, light voile and chiffon adding an ethereal transparency.
Loro Piana’s Ramadan collection, only available in the UAE, celebrates the art of embroidery with a selection of beautiful linen kaftans in four vibrant colors that recall the warm hues of the desert landscape: Egypt Rock, Splendent Rust, Dark Antique Rose and Powder Sand. Cuffs and collars are embellished with intricately woven embroidery that adds a textured, embossed effect to the textile, allowing every kaftan to be slightly unique.
In collaboration with 30 regional and international designers, Farfetch presents an array of exciting capsule collections for Ramadan, with 200 exclusive styles from brands that include Annoushka, Carolina Herrera, Dolce & Gabbana, Elle B Zhou, Sandra Mansour, Stella McCartney Kids and many more. The collections combine both classic favorites and looks right off the runway, and range from tailored suiting and modest evening dresses to luxe loungewear.
The Oscar de la Renta signature that makes women feel glamorous and confident is evident in the label’s Ramadan kaftans. Designed to reflect both change and consistency, in a time of global uncertainty, these garments portray a vibrant promise of rebirth and a joyful sense of anticipation and optimism, in colors that are rich, fresh and celebratory. Voluminous and flowing, these kaftans are a reminder of the beauty and wonder that surrounds us, and are an invitation to celebrate the season.
MaxMara has designed a timeless ivory silk kaftan exclusively for the Middle East. Decorated with an intricate colorful floral print, it maintains a relaxed yet refined silhouette, with wide kimono sleeves and elegant side slits. The neckline is decorated with delicate jewels and an ornately stitched floral design, with beaded tassels to draw it closed.
