The New Edge: Arabesque Sheilas & Abayas Fall/Winter 2013 Collection

For Arabesque Sheila & Abayas' Fall/Winter 2013 collection, founder and designer Judith Duriez has looked to the future, using architectural lines and experimental layering techniques in earthy shades of grey-blue, ivory, ash, burgundy and pale lavender in a somewhat futuristic collection that Duriez has named "The New Edge."

A perfectly fitting title for the collection I must say, as the abayas have taken on simple, tailored silhouettes and are defined by their computer-generated hand embroidered cubist and futuristic designs. However, the designs are not harsh as they are softened by the sheer overlays of lightweight fabrics like silk chiffon, French lace and tulle. The abayas would be perfectly accessorized with edgy accessories such as gold, silver and metal chokers, rings and cuffs.

Also on offer are Duriez's signature glamorous abaya designs, abayas adorned in French floral laces, frills and corsages.

It's a collection that proves that Duriez is able to reinvent Arabesque Sheilas & Abayas every season.
