Bring out your inner goddess with Qasimi

As snow and icy conditions have been predicted for many of us early next week, I'm escaping and looking ahead to next season where British brand Qasimi have played on the concept of divine beings, creating an altogether ethereal collection. Designed by duo Khalid AlQasimi and Elliot Frieze, the SS11 offering takes the drama and strength of the ancient aesthetic and brings it to life using hand embellishments galore including Swarovski crystals, antique metals, laser-cut mirrors, and intricate beading.
With draping in the finest fabrics, architectural shoulders sit atop delicate chiffons, and sharp classical shapes create space for decadent, extravagant structured silhouettes. With deep turquoise, blood red and burgundy set in contrast to the gold and ornate embroidery, this is a fantastic collection which makes me long for the good food, vibrant colour and sunshine of the Mediterranean.
