Queen Of Spades

Bring out your maracas as Queen of Spades goes all Latin with it's latest Mexican-inspired collection.The vivacious collection was unveiled at the La Fiesta Grande, a private pre-Eid preview, held at the Galeries Lafayette, The Dubai Mall.The fashionable evening unfolded over a sit-down dinner, designed and styled by Lafayette Gourmet to present an epicurean experience fit for the Mexican bonhomie that designer Lamya Abedin presented.

Abedin's exotic Latin designs once again celebrate folk art and traditions and represent it in an urban, modern style - the very elements that make up the core of the Queen of Spades brand.The newest creations keenly emphasise indigenous crafts and pre-Columbian art that has thrived over a wide timescale, from 1800 BC to AD 1500.Abedin has particularly drawn from certain artistic characteristics that were widely prevalent in the Latin-Spanish belt through the years, like a preference for angular, linear patterns, and three dimensional ceramics.These patterns and notable handicrafts seen on clay pottery from the valley of Oaxaca and the village of Tonala have found manifestation in her latest assortment of ensembles.

The look of the collection manifests a strong inspiration from the works of the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, who has achieved great international popularity.Kahlo painted using vibrant colours in a style that was influenced by indigenous cultures of Mexico interspersed with European influences of Realism, Symbolism, and Surrealism.

In Abedin's collection you will find these influences through visual hits of colourful embroidery, textured textiles, authentic local weaves and a flurry of lush fabrics like jute, cotton, organza, raw silks, satins, chiffons, tulle and lace, sourced all the way from Guatemala, Mexico, Spain, India, Indonesia, Korea, Japan and many other destinations.
For this collection Abedin chose hues of Latino spices, handicrafts and local bazaars like yolk yellow, deep purple, apricot, terracotta, tangerine, dark slate and the like, making this one of her most effervescent collections by Queen of Spades.
