Sara Melki Ready-to-Wear Fall-winter 2013-2014

The collection “Winter Operations” is inspired by military costumes, initially inspired after a visit to the Army museum at Les Invalides in Paris but also with the immersion in the work of contemporary artist Walid Raad on Lebanese wars.

Military codes are reinterpreted in a different subtle way, focusing more on strict military lines and details, all enhanced with rich materials like crushed velvet, leathers, silver knit, quilted and tweed fabrics. There is a work on volumes, on geometric cuts and graphic designs. Accessories are also very important, they complete every outfit and give each of them a sophisticated touch.
