Egyptian fashion designer Rania Youssef unveiled her new collection for spring/summer 2022.
The collection, titled “Nasya w Sharaa” (Corner and street), featured dresses, cardigans, and blouses as well as loose trousers and blouses.
The designer has opened up about the title of her new collection and noted that it means that the set features many models that suit the wearer, her taste and style as well as the nature of her work and body.
Youssef created designs that are suitable for the club, shopping, hanging out with friends, and lunch in a restaurant.
The designer noted that the wearer will find what suits her, whether she was veiled or not.
“Thus, it will stay with you in every place… Every corner… Every street,” she pointed out.
* Various materials
To reach a different design, designers need to use more than one material in a model.
Youssef used that approach and adopted many different materials, but linen and cotton dominated the collection due to the fabrics’ softness and their suitability for the summer heat.
“We want fabrics to be soft and not irritate our skin during the summer months,” Youssef noted.
The oversize is still one of the biggest 2022 fashion trends. She designed the loose-fitting straight-leg trousers and the wide top to hide the flaws of the body.
Youssef was keen to offer the outfit set to present integrated ideas of coordination that depend on the overlap of more than one color and pattern, resulting in a piece of art and distinctive clothing.
She presented the cardigan, along with the top and pants, to present a full picture of the designs.
*Very artistic colors
This summer, the colors are strong, bold, and strongly mixed, sometimes presenting shocking and striking variations.
Youssef, who is famous for being a color artist, presented the designs in joyful colors mixed aesthetically so that each piece is a moving painting.
The designer chose the art of patchwork to add touches of handcraft, whether on the blouses or the cardigan.
The important thing is that the piece is finished beautifully, distinctively, and joyfully.
