September 2021 sees Saudi Arabia's timeless modern fashion house, Leem, launched its AW21 collection in stores across KSA, the UAE and Bahrain, and on the Leem app, available in KSA. Distinguished by its stylish and attainable pieces designed for today's fashion-conscious woman, Leem continues to redefine modest wear with global appeal for the season.
This Autumn Winter, it’s all about the details. The collection hosts structural metal accents, pleats, calligraphy, and contrasting colours on powerful looks. These can be seen in eye-popping shapes as well as Leem’s signature abaya offering, combined with softly draped fabrics for a flattering silhouette. The season also sees fringe take centre stage and is cleverly refined as an unexpected trim on sleeves and hemlines. Furthermore, prints bring a unique aesthetic for Autumn Winter, think the intricate, classic paisley as a reviewed and updated pattern in a bold incarnation - think burgundy hues on a flowing maxi dress.
Soft knitted dresses remain a cosy fall-winter staple this AW21. These ultra-fine, stretchy knits come in not only a warming palette of winter hues but a striking monochrome offer that subtly sculpts the silhouette. A special mention to the Frosted White Off-Shoulder Ribbed Knit Kaftan with chunky gold cuffs - a nod to old Hollywood glam. Pieced-together pleats further flatter the shapes of the season. With asymmetrical and uneven hems, contrasting tones and fabrics, this season is not your average pleated maxi. Instead, they’re full of personality and are sure to make a statement.
Layering also makes a statement with plays on texture and volume in a masterful game of accumulation. Think mesh, in bold tones translated into versatile, pared-back pieces - a first for the modest fashion house and the perfect winter staple for the more daring this season. Colour subtly invigorates the collection this season. Playing with contrasting palette combinations via angular shapes and colour blocking, dresses, abayas and separates are invigorated via eye-catching flashes of cobalt blue, rose pink, burgundy, plum and turquoise to name but a few.
Taking cues from the current climate, Leem also gives special attention to chic comfort. Making a statement for Autumn Winter are the comfort easy pieces, which include unique knits, fleeces and jersey fabric, fashioned with hoods zips, loose fits and key accent detailing.
Specialising in essential staples with an air of luxe that form the building blocks of any modest wardrobe, Leem's stylish silhouettes mark the intersection of conservative fit and modern flair. The AW21 aesthetic also lends itself to head-to-toe experimentation, presenting stylish accessories including an array of turbans, textured gloves and vibrant scarves. To style them for this season, simply choose a standout hue to pave the way for an effortless expression of chic discretion.
Since its inception in 2018, Leem has earned a loyal modest fashion following globally and continues to expand brick and mortar steadily across the Middle East with twelve store locations, and an app for its KSA market.
The AW21 collection will be available across all Leem stores in KSA and on the Leem app from 15th September 2021, and all other stores in the UAE and Bahrain from 22nd September 2021.
