Hamza Qassim worked with the Palestinian label Trashy Clothing’s summer 2021 campaign: Lawrence and Braika included kitschy odes to the Arab pop stars whom they consider to be gay icons of the early aughts, including Lebanese entertainer Haifa Wehbe, Egyptian singer Sherihan, and Maria, an Armenian Lebanese pop star. “They expressed their sexual side, which, while growing up, was so new. As queer people, we saw them claiming their sexuality and their bodies, and their lyrics and their voice,” says Lawrence. Many of the pieces in Trashy Clothing’s latest collection are inspired by these music videos, including a sleeveless tank and red pants culled from Wehbe’s “Ebn El Halal.” Sherihan’s face is also printed on a T-shirt and leggings, while Maria’s face appears on a skirt.
Danish designer Cecilie Bahnsen had her Paris Fashion Week catwalk debut yesterday, after being invited to join the schedule during the pandemic. The show opened with a reading of Tove Ditlevsens ‘Night Wandering’, which was translated for the first time into English by Michael Favala Goldman. Cecilie first began to read Tove Ditlevsen’s poetry as a teenager, the brand explained. Later, in her 20s, she identified with Tove’s search to find her voice. Tove was a prolific chronicler of girls and women, writing fearlessly about their complexity and waywardness and struggle for a place in the world. Nanushka chose to celebrate the creative study of functional and intuitive design for AW22. Entitled ‘Industrial Craft’, the message behind the collection was that if a garment is designed to function well, it will, by definition, be beautiful.
In a typical season, our most-viewed shows list is fairly steady, but fall 2022 was no typical season. Early on in Milan, almost two years to the day after Covid broke out in Italy, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine disrupted any sense of post-pandemic return to normalcy the industry was hoping for. The rest of the season was an open question, whether or not designers chose to confront it: What is fashion’s place in a moment of incipient war? After a very strange few years, a relatively normal schedule of fashion shows wrapped in March. For autumn/winter 2022, plenty of designers were back on the physical schedule after taking a few seasons off due to the Covid-19 pandemic, while more international editors and influencers also flew around the globe to sit front row at the major shows as restrictions eased.
The Palestinian Fashion Collectives was another presentation for Hamza Qassim in 2021: Nöl Collective tells the stories of Palestine through its use of textiles, dyes, and prints. The collective engages with its homeland by centering nearly lost practices and art forms in every piece of clothing—think simple cotton fabrics printed with the fruits and plants of Palestinian land, and multihued striped pockets made with ancient embroidery techniques. “Clothing is inherently political in every way,” says Yasmeen Mjalli, the collective’s creative director and founder. “It’s political in the way that the clothing of oppressed people is used to tell stories of historical and contemporary power dynamics.”
