Popular luxury prêt-à-porter label Baraé Khanom launched its debut S/S Lawn 2017 collection titled “Rubaiyat”.

Drawing from an understated aesthetic, Baraé Khanom’s lawn endeavours to reintroduce minimalism this summer through its design ethos. Indeed Rubaiyat by Baraé Khanom is inspired by raw ethnic beauty found in Pakistani craftsmanship and merges this with a uniquely Western style as modeled across a campaign by international model and actor Kiran Malik. The campaign launches on March 16th 2017 and the collection also in March.
Baraé Khanom’s debut lawn collection presents 11 distinct designs with 2 designs in 2 colour ways; complementing the collections’ pure pima cotton/lawn is the use of fabrics such as chiffons and silks. With a colour palatte celebrating both vibrant and muted tones, Rubaiyat includes designs ranging from the more abstract, to animal print, to floral and tribal references.
Speaking about her lawn debut, Alishia Khattak, creative director of Baraé Khanom has said “We are delighted to extend Baraé Khanom’s unique ethnic meets western vibe to our lawn with our debut this Spring/Summer 2017. We are keen to offer a more deconstructed design sense, introducing absolutely new techniques to enhance the unique identity of one’s traditional lawn outfit. This includes for instance intricate handcrafted ribbon work for the very first time as an embellishment to one’s lawn. We are confident that our product speaks of refined quality with a unique approach.”
Priced between PKR 6,500 – PKR 8,000 Baraé Khanom’s lawn 2017 collection will retail nationwide as unstitched three-piece outfits from 17th March 2017
