Madiyah Al Sharqi X Karen Wazen Collaborate Once Again For SS22

Emirati designer Madiyah Al Sharqi, and Lebanese digital influencer and entrepreneur Karen Wazen, have joined forces once again to breathe life into the Madiyah Al Sharqi x Karen Wazen Collection for Spring Summer 2022. Sharing a love for everyday luxury and a style philosophy they both believe in, the designer and influencer duo received a very enthusiastic reception for their debut collection last year and have since strived to uphold their design sensibilities to bring their fans and clientele a signature and noteworthy aesthetic.

The SS22 collection is a natural continuity of the seamless unity of Madiyah Al Sharqi’s signature soft-palette hues, penchant for exaggerated silhouettes and subtle whimsical details.

For the latest collection’s campaign, Wazen is seen sporting a 60’s style bouffant blonde hairstyle, a far cry from her usual straight brunette locks, and a high fashion winged eyeliner and metallic eyeshadow. The SS22 collection sees the influencer’s favorite pieces and silhouettes from the Madiyah Al Sharqi brand archive - a ‘70s style summer wardrobe redux in playful cutout dresses, tailored monochromatic sets and romantic separates manifested as ikat-style and tie-dye printed silks, and wrinkle textured fabrics in soft pink and neutral tones.

Madiyah Al Sharqi’s most loved-signatures over the years are revived through the asymmetrical Millie and Mayla dresses, which offer a one-shouldered flute sleeve and mock neck, in both maxi and mini lengths. Whether for day or night, each dress offers an opportunity to be styled up or down. The Kamilla, a bias-cut midi dress with cowl neck is reissued in pale pink, while the Kiki mini dress is an effortless summer staple featuring an off-the-shoulder neckline, puff sleeves and tiered skirt.

Injecting her keen eye for adventurous dressing, Wazen navigated through new shapes to include in the repertoire. A noteworthy piece is the Kali backless dress with flattering cutouts on the shoulders and bodice, before draping into a dramatic slit, floor-sweeping skirt.

Elevated essentials round up the collection with matching sets, offering the flexibility of mixing and matching separates in wrinkle-effect textiles. Cropped button-downs with lapel collars in short or long sleeves can be teamed with off-the-moment high-waist Bermuda shorts, miniskirts and wide leg trousers.

The Madiyah Al Sharqi x Karen Wazen collection is available from February 2022 at, Bloomingdale’s Dubai and Kuwait, Harvey Nichols Dubai, Farfetch, Ounass, Rubaiyat.
