For spring/ summer 2015 Franco-Syrian designer Noemie Al Homsi has unveiled her second collection since graduating from La Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne.
Entitled “Rebel Without a Cause” the collection, much like the iconic movie of the same name, is inspired by adolescence and visuals based around that awkward and formative time. These complex emotions are conveyed through the use of oversized silhouettes, referencing man’s first suit, or wearing your Dad’s suit and playing at being an adult. While the references may lean towards age and experience, the clothes are firmly aimed at the young. Proportions, while being oversized and exaggerated have a crisp and streamlined quality. Especially impressive are the shirts, which evoke kimonos and beautiful silk pajamas.
Loose and lounge appropriate trousers and shorts, in dark greys and pinstripe help to enforce the vision of a young boy struggling to come to terms with adulthood.
