Fadel Denibi, the Creative Director of the Barcelona Womenswear brand Denibi, is an Artist of many media. This season’s collection utilizes & takes inspiration from items he created himself – an African mask made of Ebony wood with a matte White finish, & a painting of Agatha, a vague memory of an enigmatic, curious, feminine, & smart girl from an animated series of his childhood. These inspirational items stream in & out of the collection by way of a Backpack embellishment, multi layering fabric, & flower inspired shapes.
In a streamlined palette of Neutrals & a few Pop Colors, Multi-layered Cap Sleeves, Collars of varying heights, widths, & shapes, & Jackets that wrapped at the neckline or hemline as a petal would on a flower, made of Wool, Silk & Velvet, held their shape to perfection. With the collection’s expertly created designs, sculpted fabric, acute precision in tailoring & construction, Denibi evokes a strong woman, that has a bold sense of attitude & determined certainty.
