Hourani says " I started imagining clothes the same way I started creating images: with a sense of curiosity and innocence driven by my no-background background. No school. No teachers. No telly. No boundaries. No formatting, I like the idea of a world that we could live and shape by ourselves, only by observing. Each our own. My clothes have erupted from this world of mine. They are asexual, aseasonal, they come from no place, no time, no tradition, yet they could be home anywhere, anytime. They exude a sense of discreet chic, the essence of timeless style, drawn on a monochromatic and graphical canvas. Palette of blacks, touches of pure whites and intense reds. Sophisticated modern classics for anti-conformist individuals."
Once again, the drapery in this collection catches my eye. It is done so beautifully. At times drapery can be overdone, but Hourani (like many designers of Middle Eastern decent I have noticed) has an eye for this fine art. His clothing is designed to flow and though the pieces are very angular, the drapery lends a softer edge. The collection will be available in stores late November.
